aka Skye

A(nother) new lens arrived yesterday and my first shot with it. Probably not the right 'lens' for a square crop SC as it's all about the vignette and it gets lost with the crop (plus being on a FF body there is more vignette).

This is Skye waiting at the window for mummyt to come home.

A few days back, I passed by this image without a comment. Now that I've read what others have said I'm beginning to see what I missed. Some images just need more time to absorb. For me, this is one of those images. Thank you

So cool, even mystical.

This is literally wonderful because of that transformative property that Don referred to. The grain, the tones, the point of view and the other stuff (all of the other stuff) make Skye into something else. What I see is an older stage actress: the artfully blowsy coiffure, the magnificent aquiline nose, the disdainful regal gaze. Her best roles may be behind her, but she still commands any room. Thank you.

oh wow I am throwing away my dog photos and possibly my dogs.

oh well, my dogs came back again. I can't be rid of them or my dark grainy imagery.

but this is transformative.

Lovely image of Skye become, sort of, eponymous. He (or she) emerges from the night sky as a cloud bank, a constellation. He's flirting with dimensions, dabbling on the periphery, held here only by his eye and nose. The square frame is handsomely filled. The tones are harmonious. A fitting, comely portrait.

Wonderful image, dude. Takes me all the way back to the 60's and our Cleo, Campbell's Crest Cleopatra of Savoy :-) She, too, was a Collie.

That wouldn't work because all lenses throw a round image circle and all that changes from camera to camera is the amount of the circle the sensor attenuates. Since the Holga throws an image circle large enough for a FF sensor, when you use it on a crop sensor a lot of the vignette is perforce cropped out.

Just beautiful! At first a sensuous shadow, then, miraculously, a dog.

I see a ghost. Now I see a dog. I love a morphing photograph.

lovely shot, lovely dog - I have one of those lenses too, and a Diana. I should try to give them both a spin later this month as well.

It took me a second to see the dog, but that's because I had to scroll to see the whole picture. I love it! Nice grain and tones too.

Lovely flow to complement her mood - longing, patience, hope, anticipation, all reflected here.
