    A fun chop and great use of your own photos. You went to a lot of trouble to photograph that light in the bag. Lucky it didn't start burning.

    author says:

    Funny thing, when I edited it, I simply dragged and dropped the second dummy and added a new shadow. Then I thought, no wait, that looks like I made it bigger, lol, so I added the SBS with bars as a result. Crazy what our brains do!

    Love the perspective in this,b/w was the right choice and having that person in this not only adds scale but also adds that extra bit of human interest

    Amsterdam Bridge
    author says:

    Ha, ha, ha......

    The irony of it all.

    That "spot" is actually the "erasure residue" inadvertently left behind by my rather clumsy attempt at erasing a dust spot. Much like a fingerprint left behind at a crime scene?

    The spot is between them, just over their heads. It might not be dust, it might be something else, but there is definitely a spot!

    author says:

    I was thinking about that, but I realized that the screen shot itself is an optical illusion with the floating windows, that's the reason I placed it in the whole "SCREEN SHOT" idea I think the image by itself would just look like all the bazillions of Illusions that I've looked at already LOL

    author says:

    Thanks for the comments.

    I did notice the bit of leaves at the corner, but cropping it out would reduce too much of the blue part of the sky, (about an inch off), and could "unbalance" the over all effect of a seaside feel to the image with the trees looming too large in the foreground.

    For the life of me, I can't see the "dust spot", at least not with my 69 year old eyes?

    Very well done. But maybe you should put this picture in the SBS section and present the square in a frame or as it is (to make it prettier) in the contest part.

    I didn't know we could do that, enlarge in high res. Yes, I saw that medallion in the back, clear...crystal! Thank you.

    Old Cemetery
    author says:

    Yeah. I stopped while travelling along a back country road. The flags are apparently because those two graves are for veterans of the War of 1812. If you look in high res and magnify, you can read the medallion on the one in the back. It was an interesting place.

    All dots are inline. All the dots and circles are exactly identical sizes(respectively). No color or size changes.

    Yikes, yes old indeed and that is shown on your image. The two flags add to the evocative element of this photo....dead but not forgotten.

    I would like to chime in and agree with Lifetime Damage's assessment. As a general rule photographs that are sliced in half are perceived by the brain as boring, so a crop down would work wonders to highlight the cemetery, which is the focus of this contest. I do think this a well taken shot and we get caught up in the repeat of patterns of the stones and we love patterns.

    I like the composition of this shot and the way it draws me into it. Framing the stones with FAIRVIEW is a good touch. Furthermore, the autumn feel, the skeleton of the tree in the background all adds to a fine photo that is visually appealing.

    I do it digitally. I store my photos on Picasa (free from Google) and they have a soft focus app. I rarely use it but now that I have seen your work I might just try it out more often. Thank you for taking the time to explain this to me...appreciated.

    Nice pic. I would have cropped the right side because of the branches in the corner, then cropped a bit of the sky also to balance and to tighten the focus on the trees.
    And you have a dust spot between the mum and dad trees, you should erase it. I won't tell.

    author says:

    Yes. The eye is automatically drawn to the pole. The dissonance created makes you want to look away from it, where the iron bars lead you to the tree swallowing the bars on the left, or down to the right which leads to the graves.

    author says:

    the results are practically the same.
    The Irisblur from photoshop gives you the freedom to play with the roundness and feathering of the bluramount.

    How you do your soft focus vigenette? Digital or realtime?

    Educational, thank you. The photo is more about the gate rather than the cemetery but we do look beyond and see the stones.

    That iron pole smack dab in my face is truly a distraction but the lighting is really wonderful and I am reminded to shoot cemeteries during the haunting hours of day!

    How is an Iris blur different from soft focus vignette? (with the center being sharp) Is there a difference?

    Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.....what a difference! Thank you. I thought it was slanted a wee bit but I am wrong, the photo is straight and all those lines within tantalize us visually. The man on the L is exactly where he is supposed to be , photographically and compositionally speaking. Very lovely.

    I like this image, not the dead, but the image is strong,
    But I think the image will be stronger if you cut off some sky.
    Now it's 55% clouds 5% trees and 40% graveyard.
