An Egg That Was Never Found..
An Egg That Was Never Found..
Beautiful-Joe


Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Night Shot IV (Basic Editing)
Camera: Olympus Stylus 770 SW
Location: Vincent\'s bathroom floor
Date: Apr 8, 2007
Galleries: Still Life, Children
Date Uploaded: Apr 8, 2007

True to the title, this was a pink easter egg that I had hidden for my little brother Josiah on my older brother Vincent\'s bathroom floor. Josiah found every egg except this one. Probably because for whatever reason, Vincent\'s bathroom scares him. I guess I can\'t blame him. It scares me too.

Anywho, once again, the image hasn\'t been edited at all. Mostly because I didn\'t know what to do with it. Also, there\'s nothing horridly wrong with it. It\'s a bit dark, but the darkness fits the challenge I suppose. I don\'t like how noisy it is at all, however.
Lighting was the sun lamp from the lizard cage with a wash cloth held over it (Thank you, Yannai) and I took about sixteen shots before Vincent came home. \"What are you doing on my bathroom floor?\" \"Taking pictures of a round pink object.\" \"You go ahead and do that, Joe.\" =)

After:
=o
Wow. I really do suck.

I like the lighning on that one you should try some other concept with same lightning effect. For the shot itself it's too blurry. That would be my main complain.

Anyway keep shooting you have the motivation/passion that's all you need!

in another challenge with a slightly better crisp focus (which you might have got with a little editing :), then this could be a top 20 shot.
I love the idea of it, but the focus is like all of mine, soft.
Keep going, you have the makings of a great photographer.

Imaginative and creative approach to the challenge! Lighting and colours are awesome. Focus on the egg is a bit too blurry this time ...... looking forward to seeing more from you.

Blargh.. I knew it would be too blurry.
Ah well. I'm satisfied enough.

I like the concept. But it's too blurry and you don't show enough context. For example, showing a kid silhouetted against a bright hallway, walking away, while the egg sits in the lower right corner.

Good composition, but it's lacking in focus.

If this were in focus it'd be a really good shot. Nice use of lighting.

I think this might have been better in focus. I like the idea though!

Unfortunately the egg is a little out of focus. This is a great idea, and after the challenge, I would encourage you to experiment with it some more.

Ain't it a bugger that AF doesn't work well in the dark? :)
