Sometimes..................

.........Children play in dangerous places.





A little more adventurous with the 'child's play' series.

Thanks for getting this far past the rather dark thumbnail,I must have a bash at a B&W conversion with this one I think.

Lovely and imaginative setup Jan. Gorgeous pram. My only gripe is that the wooden blocks are way too big and to my eye just look "wrong"

Thankyou all.
Nice to get your GEA Malcolm,many thanks. Grin
Thanks too to Si & Pauline for their UA's Grin

Dave,I see what you mean about the bricks,however...they are actually the right size in comparison to the other 'toys',I haven't made them bigger.The Pram is about 8 inches high & the Train is barely a couple of inches high.I could perhaps only just fit 2 bricks inside the pram.It looks right to me coz I know how small the other things are,the viewer doesn't...hey ho Sad
Note to self...must try harder Wink

I'm interested to read how small the toys are. Very well crafted and it works really well for me!

Excellent bit of processing Janet, love the darkside to this


Quote:see what you mean about the bricks,however...they are actually the right size in comparison to the other 'toys


I think because the colours of the train, red and green are similar in colour to the bricks, hence the size comparison, but a niggle of a very fine image.

Gorgeous toys used in a very imaginative way.
Amazing to learn their actual size.
Think Dave is right about the spooky nature of image.

Excellent in all areas: composition, lighting, depth.
Sinister, as has already been said.

I like the 'work' but it suffers from a sense of false perspective and perceived size. The corridor makes the pram look like a full size one to our eyes and even then about two feet too high but because of that we see the bricks as being the same size, if not bigger, than a pram wheels and that is just wrong.

The biggest problem in any composite is perception and expectation, Mum.

Happy New Year!

Spoken like a true traditionalist Kieth .

You ever heard of Dali and his superb use of impossible scale ?

Anyway , could be a midgets pram , works well Jan.

Thought for a moment, you had been using the old feeder out the back, as a studioTongue

The comment was meant for Janet. However, I was explaining the reason for the bricks appearing too large. Thanks for the link to that Dali person, I must look her up, although women like her tend to scare us traditionalists who have so long been stuck in our ways.

Thanks all.
Comments & observations taken on board chaps...I'm just trying out this composity stuff,don't really think it's me but fun having a go,guess I gotta go reeeeeally OTT or nowt or just get some smaller bricks or a bigger pram Wink
I understand what you are saying Son but it's an uphill learning curve.
Happy New Year to you too.

Dave ..that mod is 'orrid, flippin' scary doll or what !!!!
Oh & it actually is a midget sized pram Tongue


Quote:you had been using the old feeder out the back

Nope,but the thought did cross my mind Adrian,no need for composites then I guess Wink

Absolutely stunnimg. I do not care what has been said about the size ot perspective being wrong. I think it has loads of atmosphere and oozes quality. I look at your work and half of me is inspired and the other half wants to give up and take up tiddlewinks !

This is brilliant Jan, by far the best so far (hence the UA).

You could explore butting the Pram further back in the frame, then you would give it more depth, also there would be less concern about perspective - indeed it would give it the feel of a wide angle lens, the viewer isn't concerned if the original pran is 6 inches high or 6 feet.

The above is more to address some of the comments above - I just love it.

Thanks everyone.
Lovely to get your UA Nick,many thanks for that.
I like the idea of a wide angle lens perspective,that appeals.
Some good suggestions folks,thankyou.
