Challenge: Vanishing Point (Basic Editing I)
Camera: Kodak DX4330
Location: Wautoma, WI
Date: Aug 8, 2004
Aperture: 3.000
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/91 s
Date Uploaded: Aug 8, 2004

One ladder balanced on another, in my not-big-enough-to-have-a-clean-background lawn. I used increasingly smaller bears to accentuate the disappearing effect. Though the actual point isn't quite here, I think (hope) the idea gets across.

Darkened the exposure and increased the contrast a little to help deemphasize the background and make the picure less washed-out.

(Taken after a frustrating morning of unsatisfying shots of buildings, poles, and -gasp- roads downtown, where my car died and left me stranded.)

Very nice, good color. Just too bad the background is too visible (bat, fence, house)

Cute concept. My eye keeps being drawn to the boat and fence in the distance which don't have anything to do with this image.

I like the thought and originality of this photo. Would have liked it better if the bears were facing forward so we could see their faces. 7

Nice setup! good idea. Maybe a different angle would have created a great shot!

Well. First off,. I do see a vanishing point so you'll of course get my points for that,. plus an extra point for trying to be creative. However, the choice for the subject.. well... its really cheesy. Not that the majority of my subjects have been all too great, but I still felt the need to let you know why I was marking this one down.
