I am most curious about the tat over his heart. I know fortis semper means always strong and is the navy's motto but what does fortis sed mean. I like the back lighting to this portrait of a handsome young man.

Has the shot been rotated sideways after stacking the books on top of each other? If not, how do you manage to get them to appear to be floating on different levels without anything under them to hold them in position?

Self timer, huh?! I looked at this on high res and it really is a very powerful image that clearly shows the topic of book(s). You worked had at arranging this just so and it shows, for this creativity your image is top of the shelf. Just great and gave me my morning smile.

You have some dust spots on your sensor, image is soft with colour cast and the drape takes our attention away from the main focal point. The story is strong and tells us how books are valued in this home.

Oh my, these feel precious and the script is Latin isn't it? The colour palette is perfect with opposing colours of yellow and purple. Why oh why did you nip off the edge of that one book???...overall I enjoyed finding this upload and it makes me want to know more.

I am drawn to the very realistic colour palette which makes me feel cold. It is a cold miserable day and your image gets that across. Sharp in high res. Nice one.

Hey, I was here....I'm sure of it. Image is not in focus although it does look better in high resolution. A colourful autumnal path that stills the beating of my heart.

Peaceful Path
avatar skyangel
skyangel says:

I really like the pristine unmarked snow in this one. The broken gate and fallen branches make me think no one has come or gone along this private path for ages.
It makes me wonder if the people who live on the property are so self sufficient that they don't need to go out for the winter of if they have left home for the winter to find a warmer climate. The mind boggles with possibilities and inspirations for mystery stories. Excellent work.

Great Tequila still life! YUM

Nicely set up with consideration to entire story. Cropped artistically, eye level for us to easily engage in...crisp and clear on the drink with gentle softening into the depth of the image. Colour palette realistic and not overcooked. "Pretty as a picture"...an image made, not an image taken!

I like everything about this staged photograph. The man in softness on the right gives us the feeling of them against us. It is a good thing you did not crop him out and the dead guy is fine with gun in hand , that is after all, how he fell!

I agree with Photonuts comment but I have a question for you.
We all learn about the rule of thirds in photography so why did you place the narrow DOF so low on the frame? That position doesn't tend to draw the viewers eye into the photo but rather out of it in my opinion.

Fair enough still think it would be better without him,although if he was in focus,then the interaction would have been better and given this a better effect.

Deadly Interaction

Is the man on the ground supposed to be playing dead?
If we could give the actors some tips for improvement, I would suggest that he didn't hold his gun in the air while pretending to be dead.
Nice fire shot from the end of that rifle.

Deadly Interaction

skyangel says:

I was wondering how you managed to get a totally white background till I read your comment. I think it might have been better if you had managed to get the spiderweb too. There is also chromatic aberation on the insects legs which you might want to fix in post processing. That purple and green tint on the legs looks unnatural. Good luck in the contest.

This is my hometown...thank you. You have some spots on your lens/sensor. Look on the road to the right lower section, then look in the sky and you can find dust spots in the heavens above, one above the CN tower to the right (viewer's right). You could crop up to cut off that gray spot yet leave enough lines on the road. Use your healing brush to get rid of spots.
