salsaguy: nice stobe shot
Thank you salsaguy, and have nice day.Mario
salsaguy: Nice image showing workers. A bit too cropped in and subjects dead on and straight instead of at an interesting angle which would add more dynamics to the image.Would like to see a closeup of one of the workers to see their eyes and lines on their faces to help with the theme of poor
Dear salsaguy,Thank you for your comment. If I crop the image to see a closeup of one of the worker, I will not have the environment, and I think it is part of the challenge title "poor people and their environment".Have a nice day,Mario
barb_s: Wow - nice, and not something many can capture. This is beautiful!.
Thank you barb_s, and have an nice day.Mario
Erratum: This picture was taken with a 17-55mm f/2,8. My mistake.
I like this one!
This one is nice too!
Very nice self-portrait Jill.
pen araneae: Magnificent and humbling at the same time.
Thank you pen araneae, and have a nice day.Mario
Erratum: Taken with a 655mm f5,9 William Optics Telescope, not a Sigma 50-150mm f2,8.
bigdaddave: Very nice
Thank you bigdaddave, and have a nice day.Mario
Photo Geezer: Another great image, but VSCO was not used.
Hello Photo Geezer,The Challenge Host allow other softwares too "If you would like to submit the equivalent that will be fine!" see the challenge comments. I created my own preset filter using a mix of noise, high pass, and levels. A little more work than an already made filter, but it's working just fine for me as I have used this film before. Have a nice day.
Photo Geezer: Lovely image but didn't use VSCO. I would have voted for it otherwise.
Sorry Carlos, I do not understand... is it only the background that has to be "painted" or is it the complete picture? (like your samples).Thank you and have a nice day.Mario
That is good!
Roland Karlsson: Very nice photo!
I am a littel surprised that the horizon is not straight. The curvature of the earth is not visible in such a photo, and the horizon is quite near top the middle of the image.
That the horizon is slightly curved do add to the image though, makes you feel the curvature of earth. Is it something you have added?
Hello Roland Karlsson,It is usual to have such a curvature with a 18mm on a full frame camera. The horizon is high enough in the composition to to create this effect. It has not been added at post-process. If you have any other questions....Have a nice day.
ConanFujiX: I actually like the other one too!
Me too! Have a nice day Conan.
alcaher: perfect composition, well deserve first place.
Thank you alcaher, and have a nice day.
