Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: AA Battery (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-30D
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6
Location: Loveland, Ohio
Date: Dec 25, 2006
Aperture: 14
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1
Galleries: Still Life, Black and White
Date Uploaded: Dec 25, 2006

Purpose: Slightly funny/unusual take on size and perspective concerning an AA battery.
Lighting: single diffused bulb camera left.
PP: crop, resample, usm (used built-in mono filter in camera)

I went b/w because color didn't add anything and the contrast is more dramatic in b&w.

I took a ton of shots, and I liked this one pretty well. the crease in the background (white paper) is a little distracting, but I am happy with the overall result. May be a little simple for dcp voters, who seem to like colorful, WAY pp'ed images, but oh well.

I wonder if we could see this one with a whiter background, maybe some higher contrast? cute idea!

kind of cool model you've got, but the photo does not do it justice.

He's back! This dude gets around. :D I like the concept, it's clever. The image itself is underexposed substantially. Use your custom white balance to get your whites white, curves and levels are also tools to help get your whites & blacks in line. Good luck in the challenge.

The shot looks a little too dark, but, nevertheless, it's awesome. Great job.
