Challenge: Grunge II (Expert Editing)
Collection: Challenges 2012
Camera: Canon EOS-7D
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS
Location: Front porch
Date: Apr 11, 2012
Aperture: 8.0
ISO: 320
Shutter: 1/50
Date Uploaded: Apr 12, 2012

It had been a long day. I decided I'd shoot something for a challenge. THIS is what happens when one has a long day at work and nothing to shoot. It can happen to you! (Hopefully you're better looking...)

Base photo of Susan and I posing on my front porch with the plants was taken this week. Used my demo version of Snapseed, with the Grunge setting and an overlay that it provides. Added another bit of overlay from a wall I photographed in Rüdesheim while on vacation.

Wow. A bit taken aback by the score and the awesome comments on this one. If it stays where it is, it'll be the best score I have had in well over three years. I'm not sure what that says, when it's a picture of me, some potted plants, and an armless mannequin named Susan.

Susan and you are so interesting... you both "sold" this image to the voters.

Well done, Deb.

Pssstt.... btw, I gave this a 10 too. I wish it was an 11. The funny thing is, I didn't think you shot these since you don't do many sp's. I thought maybe it was Johanna. ;D

Yippeee! Fine score.

I agree with the others. You should shoot yourself.

*grin*

Oh Wow! I missed this after the challenge, but came to check it out after your amazing finish in the head challenge. I sooo agree with Ecce Signum about diverting from the pigeons to do more of this type of photography... you are an ARTIST! And methinks, this is your niche! Congratulations, Ms. Heavyweight! :)

Debs Debs Debs! I looked at this image for ages and it had 'something' I couldn't quite put my finger on. I loved it and thought the 'grunge' worked really well and now i know what 'it' was - YOU! That said, it was a long time ago we met in London so forgive me ;)

Whilst I love your pigeons I do think you should dump them for a while and do a set of SP's, this is wonderful!

That's a pretty cool picture Deb - I have to say I'm not sure what you are both looking at - but Susan seems more interested than you ;- )

Good score and good finish

love those simple polygons of light. A beautiful teasing self portrait. I left the score at 7 just because I felt biased.

I think it says that you need more long days at work :) it has a very candid look to it, as if everything just HAPPENED to be just so. I likey

The kind of the photos that you know, at the first moment that you see them, that you'll give it a 10.
