The snowflake is quite amazing. I've never seen that before and am now fascinated.
Thanks, it's the first snow that we've had for a couple of years so the kids were very excited.I love your snowflake! The mono conversion works really well. We've barely had any snow here unfortunately.
I wouldn't have thought to crop, but I agree the tall image is improved and I like the red coated person at the end of the trees. Good leading lines to her.
The rocks do look like a great playground for the kids. It's a shame there wasn't one playing so we could see the scale, but it does look a bit cold!
They are amazing aren't they.The snowflake is quite amazing. I've never seen that before and am now fascinated.
Thanks, first time I've tried but I had plenty of failed shots on the card.Rocks
I can see why they're covered in kids in warmer weather.
A nice avenue of tree's.
I've tried and failed a few times at snowflakes. You've got a lovely example there.
Cheers, I was just holding a piece of black material and tried to get a quick shot of any flake that landed on it.That's really impressive - the DoF works for me personally. Pretty impressive to be able to go out and get the photo before the flake melted!
I don't mind at all! Thanks for taking the time to look and comment, glad you liked them so far. I don't feel I've been able to get into it much this year yet but hope through the year I'll be able to spend a bit more time on it, some of my favourite shots from the past were as a result of previous 52's so hoping it's the case again this time.Hope you don't mind me chipping in even though I haven't done a 52 for some years, I always liked your work Steve so when I saw your thread I though I'd take a look and it doesn't disappoint, the apple is great, as is the picture of your daughter on the path,
Probably need to set up flash if I have another go.Snowflake ... nice try, needs more DoF but I do understand that had to be sacrificed.
Don Komarechka's are amazing.Rocks
I can imagine a few of the kids getting bumps and scrapes on them
I always underestimate the benefit of cropping an image, sometimes you just need to do it with a non standard ratio too. You never knew the woman at the far end maybe someone in her image too
Snowflakes are fascinating, you done well to capture this, some of best macro snowflake image I have seen are by Don Komarechka (donkomphoto on Instagram)
Thanks, it's definitely a bit of photoshop. I don't think I would have had the patience to keep going until I got a pair.Great shot Steve. How many times did you have to roll the dice to get this? Or was it photoshop magic?
Thanks, I wasn't sure whether to soften the shadows a bit but they were the actual shadows from the dice taken from the shot with them in the air so went with it.Excellent shot Steve! Bang on theme, nice use of DoF and very creative with the airborne dice.
For my money, the only tiny change I would make would be to have the two "created" shadows (for that is what I assume they are - apologies if not) less sharply defined. The shadows should grow less sharp edges, but larger, as an object is raised above the table.
But great work!
Cheers, I had five dice as I had the connection to Yahzee, which maybe wasn't necessary but gave me a few more props to have on the table. On looking at it today, maybe the front dice is a little to close to the two rolling ones. I did have another dice shot but realised when I was editing that it had a six showing on it which would have spoiled the shot for the theme,I like this very much, not least those shadows under the pair are fab.
However, something makes me wish the fifth and nearest dice (die?) wasn't there.
Good work Steve.
Thanks for your comments. I thought it would look a bit empty with no props on the table so used the Yahtzee stuff, maybe the pencil is a bit to far into the image.Really like the dice image, always good to enlist the help of the family too, processing is great too, not sure if it works better without the pencil at the front right
Thanks, although I'm not going to be able to unsee that it isn't level now! I'd not checked before...must remember to in future.Pair
Really good, there's only one thing I'd maybe take a look at (and I'm being a little picky here), I'd level up the table edge, it slopes down to the right slightly.
Thanks, The matrix shot had more work and thought go into, although I think it still needs a little more but couldn't decide what.I really like the Matrix shot, the inclusion of the code finishes it really nicely.
Had you not told us I'd have had no idea about the second shot.... something about a cereal killer?
makes it all worthwhile. They grow up so fast...I'm not 100% happy with either as photos it was good time spent with the kids so I'm really not to worried.
Thanks#1 ... gone with the wind.
I love it! Definitely one for the family album.
Your right about the shades, should have got him to wear a pair. Unfortunately he doesn't have a longcoat.Both very good, and..
makes it all worthwhile. They grow up so fast...
I was a bit clueless on the Matilda one, even though I've [been forced to] watch it a few times, and I think that's my favourite. Although the bullet dodge (were you flicking cigarettes at him?) is really nicely done. Just needs a pair of shades and a longcoat
Thanks, being half term last week helped as we had a bit more time, back to homeschooling for the next couple of weeks so may be a bit more rushed again.They’re both really well done Steve, and as you say a chance to get the family included so that makes them extra special, well done for trying something that involved extra work, not just a straight shot.
Thanks, yes will be a nice memory. Particularly of my son who doesn't like his photo being taken normally.Well done to both photographer and models... nice to have them to look back on.
ThanksBoth clever and well executed.
Thanks, the background really needed to be further away as it was already taken with a pretty shallow DOF. I agree that the spoon gets lost a little.Film
I reckon you've done a marvelous job with the first one, the second is also good, but the spoon gets a little lost in the background. A shallower dof maybe.
