Challenge: One In 7 Billion (Advanced Editing VII*)
Camera: Canon EOS-30D
Lens: Tokina AF 12-24mm f/4.0 AT-X Pro DX

Date Uploaded: Jan 4, 2010

DPC is pretty much off my radar but while on vacation I caught this challenge. The last morning in NY I got the kids to pose for some shots with Aimees mom and then I took some solo shots of her for this challenge. Probably not what the voters will want from this challenge, but I really like the image.

Could very well be one of my only entries for 2010. I have had a great run here at DPC and I thank everyone for their votes, comments and faves. It has been a pleasure.

Extraordinary in its ordinary-ness.

I agree! :)

I loved this for what it was. A moment in the life of granny. Yeah, it has that snapshot feel, but that's exactly your intent (I assume). Thought it should have placed much higher. I'm sure she is one in a million. :)

Well done - a Posthumous Ribbon and Clive's choice for the blue. I'd say that's a very successful challenge!

Your photog comments sound like a farewell; I hope you enjoy the time away from challenges and that you'll come back if the spirit moves you. Cheers from NYC,

Btw. this photo made me smile -- I thought at first it was a stuffed or artificial dog! :-)

Got an 8 from me, surprised it did so poorly. Wonderful shot, Tim.

I love this image. It definitely tells her story. Also reminds me of some of my relatives. I feel like we get a nice snippet into her life yet it is still a simple composition. I love the angle and perspective. Also very clean and effective lighting. Excellent. 9

This is phenomenal. I wish Diane Arbus were here.

Fantastic portrait. I can almost smell the room, hear the kettle boiling in the kitchen, sit down next to her and listen to her story (whilst sniffing as i'm allergic to dogs). Extraordinary in its ordinary-ness. Great composition, angle and colours. My choice for the Blue. 10.

Think you can work on the framing. If she was to the left you could've framed her with the nice big upright corner of that couch. All in the composition and framing. Keep shooting

I was about ready to click the 4 or 5 key and press on, but something got me to looking again. First impression is just a good snapshot, however there is more than that. It shows who this woman is and portrays her in her home. No, this is not an exotic and fascinating person from a far part of the world, in fact, she could live down the street from me. Something about this makes it stand out the more I look at it. Maybe because she seems so familiar.

You shouldn't stand on Grandma's furniture, but I like the high perspective. But lighting should be more selective, and you need less clutter.

A lower perspective would work better for this photo.

Interesting camara angle. Kinda quirky.

Classic! I love it.

Angle of shot too "looking down" IMO.
Light a bit harsh from RHS.
