Challenge: When DPC Breaks (Extended Editing*)
Camera: Sony Alpha a55
Lens: Sony SAL 30M28 AF Macro
Date: Jul 23, 2016
Aperture: 22.0
ISO: 1600
Shutter: 1/4

Tour de France, taken from my tv. Yesterday's stage had a lot of rain, perfect conditions for the kind of low-contrast blurry pictures I wanted. Processed while watching the last stage in Paris this morning.

I noticed DPC was down but I'm afraid all I did was just wait for it to come back again. And so it did.

Gorgeous shapes, framing and tones. One of my top two. Back to add a fav.

This is great. Out of nowhere there is a tunnel and a window.

I just noticed we both used blurry TV shots of the TDF as the base of our images. You did a lot better, though :-)

I marvel at this. This was in my top two. I could not more create this image than I could write my own symphony. Nicely done.

There appears to be so much motion in the stillness.

Picasso said that in his abstract paintings, he always included a realistic "key" to draw the viewer in with something recognizable (or something like that). Here the centered window does the trick and the rest is a symphony of abstraction to revel in. The composition is also well integrated with the frame (so few photos are) which is important to sensitive eyes who see the edges as part of the image. bump
