Challenge: Never Seen on DPC II (Expert Editing)
Camera: Ricoh GR Digital III
Date: Jun 2, 2011
Date Uploaded: Jun 2, 2011

So if I do the math, individually the three shots are worth about two points each. That would be about right. My original title was "Three Pictures I Shouldn't Have Taken Last Week." I have DVD's filled with the likes of this -- really bad street shots. And what's funny is that this was little more than a hasty, eleventh hour attempt to enter something. I had fussed around all week trying to put together a good Harris shutter image, and Thursday night, I had nothing I was happy with. Frustrated, I went through last week's shots, picked a handful (more or less at random), and stacked them up, adjusting transparency. What I had was a little too busy, so I removed an image with geese (and, damn, was that painful!). And I ended up with this silly thing. No cropping, no moving around of images -- all of these fortuitous juxtapositions came right out of the box, one on top of the other.

I really thought I had the brown in the bag. The score and feedback was an unexpected surprise. Thanks to all...

I like the irony of the shirtless guy walking past the "T-Shirts $3.00" sign. I also see some interesting textures blending with people's arms/shoulders/skin in at least 3 nifty ways.

Brian, I absolutely loved this image the first time I saw it! I'm surprised this one didn't go higher! Underrated...

Fantastic concept Brian. There is so much to consider, primarily surrounding the relationships between the various people strangers.

Combinations of forgotten presentations. Each alone and not much use, but together creating a new life, like the flow of a river in the spring. Free to move only downward, as gravity takes hold, and moves us forward, always forward.
