That really works, Sahil. Excellent images and a wonderful idea to shoot that sort of detail.
I really like what you have done with these. The almost desaturated look works really well and once my eyes adjusted to the fact that the baby's foot was not growing out of the back of her head I really like the presentation of the first image too. It really is what makes coming to this forum so worthwhile - when you witness that transition of a photographer moving from the point of producing yet another everyday photograph to a stage where he or she starts to exhibit style and flair. You are doing that here with these. It is great to see the turning point so clearly demonstarted. So no pressure for the next set
When I see the images in the 'conversation with' threads that the photographer posts as being their turning point shot I never ever agree with that choice. I don't think seeing that turning point is something that is intuitive with your own work.
All of them work great. My momma's heart goes straight to the toes... it's perfect.
Thanks Steve & Mary for your kind words.
Well its the presentation that had made the individual photos look pretty good. On the camera these three pictures looked having lots of potential. I had thought these would be outstanding & so did my friend. But when I saw these on computer screen I was disappointed. But I didn't want to let these pics go waste. So the idea of collage came up. Got them together, resized them, worked on placing them, then de-saturating & then border etc. & I got super excited looking at it.
This photo shoot taught me a LOT. The second pic was very much liked by me & my friend but I knew that the left eye of the baby was a problem, technically. But my friend & the child's mother are happy with the results. So my purpose is solved. It was a free photo shoot anyways. But I got my learning tips.
& Yes, CiC has taught me a LOT! I have developed an eye for critically analysing a shot.

Not a problem, Sahil. My car license plate says 'Lucy&Me' and people frequently call out 'Lucy' when I got out of the ca,r or in New Hampshire people would remember Lucy's name but not mine... I'll answer to most anything... somethings I can't even print on here, Colin would ban me for sure. Lucy. Mary. No problem.
1st thing, shouldn't you be asleep? I guess its 6 a.m in your part of the world, since the time(my 12:29 PM) shown here was just 3 hours back. Early riser huh?!Last edited by Sahil; Today at 02:59 AM
Ha! Lucy sure has become your integral part. Lucky, you people can have license plate as per your likings.
And Colin? Ummm... He is fun at times
Colin... Colin is fun.
Just out of curiosity, what keeps you up all night. ( I know you have to answer this question in "In Conversation with Lucy..." too, but you can give some diplomatic answer there
I hope things at your end get at their best, pretty soon.The details aren't pretty and I'm trying to let 'em go.
