win13: •No major photo-shopping •Minor editing such as exposure, contrast and such for small fixes is acceptable
A some photos have black (water) in the back ground. As we over here in Thailand only grown these in clean and clear water, so what gives then with
•No major photo-shopping
I have not entered into this challenge due to that fact.
Please could you explain what you meant by
•No major photo-shopping
As I feel this IS Major photo-shopping.
That's where I took my photo.
This is the perfect photo for this challenge. Great composition and coloring.
Beautiful scene. Should have won 1st place.
Absolutely gorgeous photo. I love it!
Thank you. This is a favorite genre for me. I must thank Creative Photo Workshops and Dan's Camera City for giving me the opportunity to take photos like this. I wish I had the equipment to do it on my own. Oh, and the car too (haha).
I really love the intensity of this photo.
What's even more crazy is that these flowers were very small, about an inch. I bent over to look at them and all these little faces just looked back at me. I had to get out my macro lens and grab a photo!
Best of the bunch, in both creativity and execution. I assume the low scores are because competitors were intimidated by the outstanding quality of this photo. It is incredible and should have won hands down.
Thank you Ben. I used the full Photoshop CS5. I learned some techniques watching the on-demand videos at NIK that I tried on this photo. The PS smart filter enabled me to keep going back to the NIK plug-ins and tweaking the look.
This is fabulous!
Thank you. I learned that border technique from a webinar at NIK software.
xml5000: There's something slightly pervy/creepy about this entry for me. Perhaps I'm a mega-prude.
Many photographers shoot Senior Portraits. Why is this any more pervy than other challenges whose subjects are young people?
britties: Such a pity, because it's technically the same thing with ir converted cameras, the only difference is that the filter is positioned between the filter and the sensor instead of being in front of the filter, therefore the result is the same (and the shutter speed as well ;)).
Hope there will be an appropriate challenge soon
I'd love to participate in a challenge for IR converted cameras!
What about photos taken with an IR converted camera? Would that be allowed?
Thank you everyone. Film Noir is a favorite of mine. I really appreciate everyone's words of encouragement.
Thank you. This is a favorite of mine as well. The models had the perfect expression. It was challenging to frame because I wanted to avoid seeing the light behind the car window. I had several shots, but this was the best.
Thank you. The book looks wonderful! Now I have to go on safari!
Thank you. It was shot at a Film Noir event with Creative Photo Workshops. The location was an old train depot. I tried to use the tracks as leading lines. The fog machine was partly for effect, but also to conceal the lights. When I saw the shadow in the fog, I hoped it would be visible on the photo. I was really pleased with the final version.
It appears that #1 & #3 were entered by the same person with a slightly different user ID. Is that allowed?
