On P1060005 photo in agentul's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

I planted a couple varieties of these last summer and they were called Teddy Bear Sunflowers. I don't know why, but some of them struggled to survive the summer. The lacy greens is a nice touch.

In reply to:

Bangers and Mash: I made a change to the number of entries per person and as well the total submissions. I feel there may well be a great deal of images that would be missed if not for the changes made. Enjoy the challenge.

Cheers
B&M

It might have been better to run a series of challenges, I have no interest in entering or viewing 300 entries, let alone voting for all 300. I wonder if the average entry will even average 30 votes each?

The concept should be what you can do with the cheap F/1.8 50mm lens, not the body it is on or relative mathamatical focal lengths.

On Egypt: Its People challenge (5 comments in total)

What happened to the strong profile entry? Also, while 2nd place is a good photo, it does not meet your requirement for noting the location.

You mirrored part of a chimney against a blown out background and cloned out the bird on bottom. Why not seek a real reflection and shoot a real image?

In reply to:

miles green: wow!

It's very cool, built about 1900 it has been sitting empty for 20 years and all efforts to save it have failed.

Thanks!

In reply to:

Schjeldal: The absence of images from the Western culture is thought provoking

In the west the burial process is governed by laws that do not allow rituals like you see above, in large part due to public health concerns. They do not even lower the casket into the grave until every one has left the site.

Personally, I would find the smell of burning bodies very offensive. Having been burned badly in my youth I can still smell the burning flesh looking at most of these.

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.
