How wonderfully expressive !!! I am sure the group can forgive you anything while you are posting photos like this!

Bravo . . .it would never have occured to me just to include this little part of Cassie. I hope to develop an "eye" for this yet.

Vito, I realize the object of the challenge is to get us to step outside the box and try new things. However, I feel that another purpose of the forum, same as the other photo forums, is to display our work for the enjoyment of others and for critique if desired. Shooting the challenge during the two-week period sometimes is just not practical. In my area, the weather this time of year does not often lend itself to shooting unusual and artistic shadow pictures. However since I have shot pictures in the past that meet the artistic part of the challenge, I think it is perfectly acceptable to show them.

Your dog shot is outstanding. If you are like me, you have hundreds of shots of your dog. Annie (<--avatar) is 20 months old, now, and I probably have 200 shots of her since she was a pup.

Just remember "Rules are made to be broken!"

thanks guys glad you like it!

good points cal...i guess it makes sense to keep being lenient (we have never really enforced that rule lol) about it!

btw..this shot was unbelievably dark...i actually had left this one for the 'archive' because it was too dark to see the look in her eye, and how the dof is placed where it should

but, i was running through the pictures on my 1gb card, to make sure a format wouldn't delete any pictures i don't have on CDs, i found this one...and i edited it up..

and was very pleased with how it lightened!

here's the original!

That is pretty much my view to. It allows you to use your back catalogue.
I see the reasoning behind the idea of only posting photos within the challenge times. It means that (for instance with this current challenge) you're thinking about shadows and learning from it. But if you did that a week or even 10 years ago I don't see why you can't post it.

Maybe it'd be best not to say when the photo you post was taken. Then we'd all be happy.


Excellent photo, vito. I like the narrow dof.

Vito -- the editing is fantastic -- it's superb that you were able to adjust the levels to get such a great pic without running into noise/artifact/distortion problems.

Wow!

The detail in the eye reflection is to die for. Lovely expressive photo.
In your editing did you use the shadow/highlight in CS? What ever you did a super job.
