Challenge: Oxymoron (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Fujifilm FinePix S5200Z
Location: Willamette River - Salem, OR
Date: Oct 11, 2006
Aperture: f3.2
ISO: 200
Shutter: .40 Seconds
Galleries: Abstract, Black and White
Date Uploaded: Oct 14, 2006

ISO level: 200
Exposure time: 0.40 sec
Aperture f3.2

Post processing:
Desaturated, cropped and rotated.
Boosted Brightness and contrast.
Sharpened, filtered w/ Neat Image.
Resized and saved.

I had several pictures to choose from. I am sort of disappointed in that you can tell the TV is not on and can see the cord, etc... The light I hid behind the TV also does not do that good of a job lighting my face.

I also wish I had a polarizer to cut some of the glare off the section in the center of the pic.

Nice idea, arrangement, props, including bottle. Surrealistic, and it grew on me at the second viewing - bumping up.

Interesting idea, however I'm not quite sure this counts as an oxymoron...

Wow, impressive! I really love the humor here, not to mention that I like this photo technically.
