Challenge: Self Portrait VI (Advanced Editing V*)
Camera: Canon EOS-40D
Lens: Tamron SP AF 17-50mm f/2.8 Di II LD Aspherical (IF) for Canon
Location: Rochester, NY, USA
Date: Dec 2, 2007
Aperture: f/8
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/100

Date Uploaded: Dec 3, 2007

My first entry into DPC. Not my best self-portrait effort and this was a dual-purpose photograph better suited for another online contest. But I figured I might as well give it a whirl.

My wife pushed the shutter button after I set up the tripod, focus, composed and set exposure. I then quickly (!) went over and she pressed the button for me a few times. Thankfully it wasn't too windy :)

I don't expect this one to do too well in voting but at least it should get some points for originality.

you could have easily cropped more off the foreground to make yourself a bigger part of the scene.

You must have one heck of a pool if you are gonna go snorkeling in it. To me, it looks like you are ready for one of those polar bear dives! lol fun picture - good luck!

Betcha didn't hang around for 47 different takes of this shot. Crop a bit off the bottom. Otherwise well done.

Nice photo. You took risk catching cold to take this one. This challenge was advanced editing, and you actually could enhance the colors a bit more. It is a sharp, clean picture. I think the reason I see it little fade is taken in cloudy day. I am not sure how, but it could be done a bit brighter. Still is a cool(!) photo :)
