That is a very spooky effect! What colors were in the original? Was the sky very dark to start with? Could you post the original in your gallery? It would be great to compare 'before and after'. . . . . . Thanks, Steve
Looks damp, dank, dark, and spooky. Great photo for the challenge!
I like your photo. It's got so much texture it almost hurts the eyes to look at it. Could have been a set for a Batman movie, or something like that. The motion blur in the shadowy figures is great too. Good work!
Perfect photo for the challenge.
My favorite in the challenge. There were some great images in the challenge - but I think yours stood out from the rest.
Let me be the first to congratulate you. It's an amazing photograph! Even more amazing that you got it with an aperture of f/2.5. There are lots of 'bee-on-flower' pictures - I've even got a few myself - but this is something else. Good work!
I thought this one was really clever. It was one of my favorites in the challenge.
I really enjoyed your picture. It's delightful! Fine looking cat too!
Probably the best photo in the challenge. If this isn't strength in weakness, then I don't know what is. Good idea to use a longer lens for this type of subject - stay several umbrella lengths away :)
I thought this was an excellent photo for the challenge theme. She has great spirit. Good luck to you both!
Welcome to DPR. Pretty good finish for your first challenge.
The challenge theme was a bit confusing to me, but your photo got it right, I think.
Beautiful photo! It's a story that would be understood in any language.
Excellent photo, and just right for the challenge. Congratulations on your first place finish!
I enjoyed your photo. Nice and sharp, and lots of details to study. Perfect for the challenge too.
Good timing! I thought this would finish higher. It's a good fit to the theme of 'lucky shot'.
Beautiful cat. The photo is nicely framed and focused. It was one of my favorites in the challenge.
That's a very agile cat! Great photo!
This is a fun shot! It made me smile. Perfect timing! This will be a wonderful memory for the kids too. I think of all the pictures we make, the family shots are way more important than attempts at 'fine art' photography. I'm glad I saw this one. Thanks for sharing.
This was one of my top favorites in the challenge. It really is a lucky shot - I don't suppose you could do that again even if you tried all day. That's a great expression too -- and the tiptoes are a nice touch.
