Challenge: Deck Of Cards (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Pentax K-5
Lens: Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 EX DC for Pentax
Location: Snellville, GA USA
Date: Apr 22, 2012
Aperture: 11.0
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/180
Date Uploaded: Apr 22, 2012

Goal here is the French Revolution, with the face cards losing their heads. The joker is the executioner. The Ace which is both the high and low card is siding with the revolutionaries and hiding from the chopping block.

All the revolutionaries are "odd" BTW. The poor queen is last to go.

This came out pretty much like I envisioned with black and white and grain. It will score poorly :)

I wonder how many raters really looked at this before rating it. Personally, I think it is brilliant - the equal of some of the other highly rated images. I've been rating between 7 and 10 on this challenge because of the creativity that went into a lot of these images, but this one ranks right up there with what ever wins. Very creative and nicely lighted and composed. By rights, this should be a top three image. Well done.
