Challenge: Single Light Source (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon EOS-300D Rebel
Lens: Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM
Location: bathroom floor
Date: Nov 15, 2005
Aperture: 4.5
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/13
Galleries: Animals
Date Uploaded: Nov 15, 2005

Taken in the bathroom with 40 watt bedroom light directly below shining at her face, bit tricky as with the slow shutter speed any movement left too much blur. Really brought out the warmth in her eyes. Wouldn't have thought of trying this if not for the challenge. May not be dramatic enough....but I'm pleased!

Desaturated using the channel mixer, colour balance to bring a little warm colour back into the shot.

I'm a dog lover so this gets bumped up.

Beautiful and emotive. This is really well done. Composition, lighting, sharpness, shallow DOF, and duotone are all working together very well here. Good luck. 9.

5 - Apologies in advance if I am wrong, but this looks a lot like a fellow(?) I have in my Favorites named Bailey - 'windows of the soul', suemack (not a photographer guessing game but the style is so alike), and that makes me want to mark this higher, mainly for the 'affiliation' of Bailey and his(?) character who/which is so photogenic, in my opinion. However, for this Challenge, "Use a single, artificial light source to dramatically light the subject of your choice.", I just don't think you have done this to its (his/yours) full potential. Perhaps I am comparing this shot to the other too much, but trying not to. Just would like to have seen some more 'darkness' around the edges perhaps, mostly in an attempt to 'create a more dramatic effect'. Also, I find the little 'light' in his(?) eye detracts from this shot, although only slightly. Some more detail (although I think perhaps you were going for this 'soft' look) in some of his fur, or the eye, may have made this better too, in my opinion. Hope all this makes sense and I haven't offended/disappointed you. Like the title - obviously apt. edit:typo & ha & apologies to Bailey, who I now know is a 'she'

Great capture of that "puppy dog eyes" expression. The bright round reflection on his eye is a bit distracting though. Nice job!

It's pretty and well-done, and it packs a good emotional punch, but the lighting is not terribly dramatic.
