|That's how these three pronounced the word "ready" over and over and over. Post processing was: sharpening, additional tilt, auto contrast and square crop, using Picasa software (i LOVE picasa for it's simplified crop and straighten tools); i then resized for the web using CS3 and one more click of sharpening before upload; the light was amazing on the Gulf at a little after 7 pm, and the children did not know I was shooting them, which made all the difference! They were having major meltdowns for 99% of the other 447 posed family shots!
The tilt is not exact, which will probably be mentioned. The children were very very tanned and might be too dark for dpc liking; I predict mid-5s for this, but would love mid to high 6 and top 50. I am probably delusional on the latter, but admittedly I love this shot and am proud of it.
I am proud of 40th place. Suffered tremendously with mucho 4s on last day of voting, as I always do, but no worries, as this was by far my PB and am proud of that. Regarding the tilt, I felt it is what made the photo unique and special, and for a free study with almost 500 entries, did not feel the typical kid shot would cut it. This was the only one shot in this manner in a series of about 300. Thanks for the support, votes and comments! I feel honored to have received such nice comments from fabulous photographers!
