Challenge: Free Study 2009-07 (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Challenges 2009
Camera: Canon EOS-400D Rebel XTi
Lens: Lensbaby Composer
Location: Wiesbaden
Date: Jul 23, 2009
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/3200
Galleries: Lensbaby
Date Uploaded: Jul 31, 2009

Lensbaby shot into the sun. The young man in the foreground had been over by the stroller when I first sought to compose a shot, but he began quite purposefully striding directly toward me. Apparently his dad had just gone somewhere behind me and the young man was not at all pleased to stay by the stroller.

In reality, the feet are not related. But for the sake of this picture, they are.

This is entered at the bequest of Karma and others who voted "torture" over "safe", so you guys will all share in my lovely sub-5 score! :-)

Processing is the Platino V2 action and a very slight crop.

Really brought down my average a bit. I'd worked quite hard and had a pretty good run to get my overall average to x.x500, and as of this writing it's down to x.x487. That's quite the drop for as many challenges as I have, yes? Kinda sad. But thanks to the three of you who do like it! I really appreciate that!

The "should have" entered option:

I guess I looked at this wrong because I thought it was a child running to the stroller or the mom who's feet are in the background. I like how things seem to be disproportionate - where the child and the stroller look huge compared to the feet in the background. Interesting composition.

PM with your e-mails, I'll send it over to you. It used to be available for a free download at ATN central but not anymore...

P.S. Deb, that's a nice voters/commmenters ratio.

See Deb, scores be damned. Look what you got! The pyellow :)

I did not get around to this when voting, and I wish I had've. I think it is awesome. It is spooky and disconnected, and reminds me of kids who are neglected and left alone on their own. It's like whoever is responsible for the little guy is just walking off. Or maybe, the little guy is leaving the stroller growing up and become more independent.

I think you entered the right one; sorry your average took a hit.

I, as always, love to see what parts of life you encounter that you share, and to see how you choose to do so. The conversion is great, your handle of the LB is wonderful.

Cool wrap-around effect on this picture.

Waaay too subtle for a free study though - this needs to go straight to a gallery instead.

This is a new dimension for the new breed to understand, you see me but you can't, a strong photo for the purists, and a also ran for the others, I Like the texture and the story for this image well done.

pyellow is short for Posthumous Yellow Ribbon. I wasn't feeling well last night, but wanted to give my ribbons.

This is a scary, mysterious picture. Of course it got low votes, silly! Some people don't want to feel things.

I had a hunch... Really nice. Wish I had had time to comment more extensively during this challenge (usually I'm not so terse), but I wanted to at least acknowledge it. I gave this an eight. Street + Shadows = Sublime.

PS: I think your alternate would have scored higher -- it has more mass appeal. But of the two, I prefer this one. I think you did too.

Deb, check out the commenter scores. Now I didn't vote, so it could have even gone up. I know it's not been appreciated as well as it might, but to me it is still a fabulous image and should have scored much higher.

Lensbaby or not, it's a beautifully captured moment.

Would love to be able to give this the score it so clearly deserves. Instead I'll just stick it in my faves.
