Challenge: Moods (Advanced Editing IV)
Collection: Challenges
Camera: Nikon Coolpix 5700
Location: Harwich Port, MA, USA
Date: May 1, 2005
Aperture: f:4.5
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/60
Date Uploaded: May 1, 2005

Deliberately underexposed, cropped and pushed to the max in PS, applied Flaming Pear filter for pixellation effect, too much futzing around to describe here, came out pretty much as I visualized it in the shooting.

Minor cloning upper corners to remove bright distractions.

Didn't comment on this during the challenge. I like this, as I think it effectively conveys what all photographers can relate to when someone doesn't want their photo taken! Technically, as a photo, it may be rather artsy/graphic to the feel, but I think it does help convey the mood. I think it was mostly underated in the challenge.

Are they giving the camera the bird?

The lighting on this shot is well done. But I think that the filter distracts from setting the mood of this photo. Placement of the subject looks good as well.

imho, way too post-processed, pixelated, etc. Might have been an interesting image if left to look more like a photo. like the finger postures and the general sentiment, but again, it's much more a photoshop rather than a camera product for me.

hmm, i think you will get voted down for the grain.. not sure what i think about it.

Processing on this is a little confusing. I can see trying to make it look "hurried" or "spur of the moment".. as such.. but I feel that you've gone a little overboard. I like the concept though.

Hmm...i get the idea, but why the noise?

I think I know what you were going for, but it just doesn't work (in my humble opinion). The added effects of graininess to apparently preserve anonymity are too contrived. Don't get me wrong, I like the finger gesture and the fact that the model covered his/her face, but it lost its appeal due to the added effects. Sorry (4).

Way too much PP for DPChallenge.

I see the middle finger creeping on its way up there, LOL. I'm afraid there may be a lot of complaints abou the grainy texture.

I'm sorry, but these effects spoil the image IMHO. It could have been nice without them, but this is not for my taste.

At first, I didn't like the extreme grain. But the more I look at it, the more I like the simplicity.

Are you trying to convey, "loss of freedom"? Nice composition, but the heavy useage of editing can sometimes go against you as far as points go. I'm just speaking from experience! :) I like the editing, btw.

your post processing really doesn't work for me, sorry

I can't take pictures of my kids without one of them performing the one finger salute. I suspect some will mark you down for filtering the picture, but I like it and you get a 10 from me.

I like the idea, but the quality of the outcome does nothing to help the idea. Looks like this person wasn't overly happy about having their picture taken. <g>
