    Illuminating

    Day 16: July 2010 Photo-a-Day Thread

    Canon 500D, EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM, 4X ND filter. I did a bit of HDR by hand, both images at f/13, one ISO 100, one ISO 400, composited the figurine from the 400 into the 100. PAD slideshow.

    I got the idea from Colin's "flash in the pan," thought it could be interesting to show a flash in action. What's kind of cool (to me, anyway) is that one of the flashes illuminating the overall scene was my 430EX, triggered as a slave by the 580EX that's part of the scene.

    C&C greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Rick

    The very first thought that came into my mind when I saw this, was of this as an extremely powerful metaphor for the domination and exploitation of many members of society by other more powerful individual and institutions in society. From that viewpoint, this carries a very powerful message.

    Well, do I look happy?

    I broke my glasses (again) today ... so today's shot is in honour of that!

    Sorry it's not up to the usual standard, but I had a full-on day today, and didn't have the chance to shoot anything better

    iPhone to the rescue!

    So, it's an 'off-spec' shot then?

    Rick, I really like the idea of showing the flash in your shot and the execution is very good. Very well done.

    Rob, This is great! The light on the spirals is spot on if you would ask me. The partial symmetry works very well. The only question remains is: what are those..uhm 'things'?

    And here's my photo of this day.

    Day 16: July 2010 Photo-a-Day Thread

    1/200s . f/22.0 . ISO 100 . 18 mm

    View on Black

    The harsh sunlight on the other side, and the left side isn't really working but I had no time to do the shot at a better moment. I'll do a revisit at about sunset when I have time.

    Very good. What about a British police version...

    PC 580EX: Oi! you, little girl. You're not allowed to take photographs in this public place.
    Little girl: Oh, Sir! It's not a camera, it's a doll
    Pause......more pause.... radio conversation.... bit more pause...
    PC580EX: I have reason to believe you are a terrorist!!!

    Time vortices on the edge quadrant of Alpha-Sibex in the Nestar galaxy. I used a bloody long lens.

    I like the log shot. Nice tonal range and composition. Is that one on earth?

    Hey, I'll give 2 points for effort: you put a string there instead of drawing it in PS.

    Re: Illuminating

    Thanks, all, for the comments. I did vaguely notice that the flash was sort of looming over the subject, but didn't pay attention to it. In fact, I probably tried to make it loom less, to get the flash and figurine balanced for the concept I had in my head, which was the flash illuminating the subject.

    I had a similar problem with the stream shot earlier this month, getting so intent on the composition I saw first that I kept ignoring a much better shot. Just as Colin points out about "check six" while shooting, I really need to keep in mind that a whole different idea can suddenly pop up while shooting or processing. I'm better at that when looking at others' images than my own: definitely something to work on.

    Thanks!!
    Rick
