Challenge: Cell Phone Mania (Basic Editing)
Collection: Challenges
Camera: Nikon D1X
Lens: Nikon AF-S Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8D IF-ED
Location: England

Date Uploaded: Mar 17, 2007

Dangled my Son's mobile phone on a bit of thin cotton and had him shout at it

Basic editing . crop,curves,USM,desat,noise ninja,add border,resized,submitted.

OK I think this will do rather well so Im gonna put my neck out on a limb and say...


Est score 7.0
dream score 7.4

I might be miles away with my estimation but as I've always said.. I care more about whether or not I like the shot personally and if I get a FAV then that makes it all worth while.

Thanks


Thank you so much everyone, and this is the truth, I am so happy my wife won the BLUE, she worked so hard pulling that shot off and she made a super job of it. Thank you also for giving me this red ribbon for my shot. The idea came to me suddenly and I grabbed my son 31_N.gif Sparda and we went into the street for a shootout. I am VERY VERY HAPPY.....

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/25/2007 07:49:33 PM
HAH! I want one of those. That line down the wall, "through" the phone - distracts me - I keep trying to see if it is what holds the phone up or just a line in the wall.

03/25/2007 09:03:25 AM
Fantastic shot! Good idea, well executed, I love the light and the model's expression.

great idea! my pic for a ribbon
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/24/2007 03:40:06 PM
I just really like this - amusing concept, crisp blacks, sharp focus of foreground subject. Would have liked to see the cellphone itself in sharper focus, although I don't know how you could do that. I also like how the wall is angled off, creating movement in the image from right (man) to left (cellphone).

03/24/2007 02:40:12 PM
great expression!

I have that same phone! This has got to be a ribbon contender, very nice work. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/23/2007 12:37:27 PM
IMO a shallower DOF would have worked better....wires and stains in the wall are distracting, specially the vertical wire right behind the cell phone.
