This photo is cropped and the edges are burned. Hope you all like it. Taken today at the Perth Australia Day celebration. Hopefully i'll get some nice firework shots tonight

I liked both pictures, although I think the second one could be better with their heads on. But still, it has the artistic element of highlighting the body paints.

Pardon the ignorance thought, but what does it mean "burned edges"? Is that literally burned or is that a photography term.

Thanx for the comment ben, i did think of leaving the heads on, but like you said, i was trying to focus on the tools and body paint, but more importantly, leaving the heads in left big spaces at the top.

Burning and dodging a picture can be done on films and on digital prints using editors like photoshop. Burning means making sections darker, while dodging means making the sections lighter. So in the first picture, i darkened the edges. Hope that helps.

Thanks for taking time to explain the "burning and dodging" techniques. :idea:

nice shots, Where did you burn the photos, I cant tell? Ilook forward to your photos of those awesome fireworks they have up in Perth, Ive been twice before but being as Australia day is mid week I cant see us getting back to Albany afterwards before 3am and we start work at 5.30amMaybe when it falls on a Saturday we will get to see them again, I would love to film the whole thing on digital and on video.

i used very subtle burning techniques on both pictures, especially at the four corners. I think my exposure for the burn was 10%.
