I don't have a new lens, but I do have a new Raynox macro adapter. Would that qualify?thanks,../Arnie Rose
Looks like pastry from the thumbnail - interesting
Reminds me of the painting "To Prince Edward Island" by the Canadian artist Alex Colville.
jetals: Well captured.How was your camera afterwards?
My camera was fine. I was sufficiently far away that neither my nor my camera got wet.
Don't think a ship's lobby would be eligible.
This image exemplifies the transition from fall to winter - beautiful.
I like this "final" product. There are nice horizontal lines at the top and middle of the image. The white bird off to the right adds some balance to the image, since the vegetation originates from the left.
I've seen the revised image only. I like the composition, with the tension of the off-centre subject suggesting motion to the right. As other have mentioned, the ambiguity of the height above the water adds additional tension to the image. I think the monochrome treatment needs some additional "punch" for greater range of lights and darks and greater contrast. This would be the time to de-emphasize the background.
As I scrolled through and voted, I noticed that many of these images are not really portraits, but candid images and "street" shooting on the beach. I submitted a "more formal" portrait-style image.
Not sure what the challenge host had in mind.
This is more of a candid, not a portrait.
Interesting abstract image using soft focus but missing the high contrast and interesting details as noted in the challenge.
Is a long exposure of fire-works part of the light painting definition?
Not sure this meets the challenge rules. I'll leave this to the host to decide. I'm not voting for it.
Too much bokeh to make any sense of it.
Is this taken in the New York - New York casino in Las Vegas?
Indeed, it is piping for an air managment system - taken at the Puerto Vallarta International Airport.
