Good work with the B&W, it could really pass for old time if the soldiers were not so crisp and clean,,;))

In reply to:

Blomerus: Excellent photo! I love the dramatic and surreal feel to this photo.

Is this your first in this genre? Do you have any other similar photos on flickr or another site?

I have been playing on and off with this type of photography for a while now. Maybe we can share ideas.

Congratulations once again.

Thanks, and WOW... I'm no where near your level, just a guy that likes to play with his camera now that the kids are gone... A couple people have suggested I start a page but....

I have tried to do a couple other things, but have been frustrated by positioning, framing, getting them to stay in place and control/balancing of light not to mention the dust that collects if you take to long.

I would like to find some nicer props and have thought about using smaller bearings, but I really need a good macro lens and maybe some flashes before trying again.

In reply to:

bluemoonman: Great work & well deserved top spot but why the low votes?

I don't have an answer for the low vote thing you see too much of on many challenges, mis-guided or something else?

Thanks all and there is a shot of the set-up in my gallery now if you are interested.

Christian, I need to find some of those magnets you used... Very Cool!

On Odd Ball in the Tiny Things challenge (18 comments in total)

Thanks all, this is all real, set up on an old overhead projector. I will put a photo in my gallery to give you an idea when I get home tonight. Give it about 10 hours, work keeps getting in the way of play time.

I tend to stick with the basic processing, curves, black, gray and white point selection, etc... I don't even know what "raytraced" is, will have to look it up...

PaulChapman: I'm an aerodynamicist...really.... weird logic; shows antisymmetric wing geometry and tail alignment necessary to maintain a turn/circle to port.

They are amazing to watch, all the little shifts in body position.
