    Sorry, this is as big as I can get it, has to be less than 300kb which limits the possible upload size...

  • red flats by serenityjohn

    Great perspective, I'd just suggest trying to straighten it all up a bit as this will strengthen the impact... gets my vote!

  • Building the Ark by dennisg

    Thanks to all, it's the new corporate headquarters for Aldar in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, part of a US$20 billion development along the 11km Al Raha Beach. They're putting up some 260 new building structures, and this is just one of them... it will form a complete disk, all glazed, once it is complete this time next year.

  • Deep In Thought by Darrenwooly

    Excellent shot, well done, love the composition - might be stronger if the eyes were a tad higher on the line of the upper third?

    Oh man, I just LOVE this plane. What a FANTASTIC vehicle she is for transporting troops and cargo into combat...

  • Mystery by tinabolton

    That's a beautiful image, and a very well spotted opportunity. I love the subtlety of it...

  • Through the Lens by Willyjeen

    I'd agree with starstriders, it's an excellent image and I'd also say crop some more off the top of the image to bring the eyes nearer up onto the line of the top third if it will work. I love those razor sharp blue eyes, well captured!

    GORGEOUS!

  • dilly by Zephyrphoto

    Nice image, love it - I would just suggest cropping a little closer so as to get the eyes composed on the line of the top third, a square crop would work well here.

    Beautiful lighting, reflections, and very clever with the vanishing point...

  • simply stunning by dennisg

    Thanks for all the comments,
    Alex - I admit the eyes should be sharp, this is the difficulty with 'shooting spontaneously from the hip' with an f2.8 lens and such a narrow depth of field.
    I think it's a great photo, and she's a beautiful woman, but the image could do with improvement in eye sharpness.

  • Brand new... by dennisg

    Thanks for all the comments - this is a picture of little 'Olivia May' at only 2 days old (born 17 April at a home water birth). Weighed just 6lbs 5oz at birth, & born at week 41 - that's her Mum with the belly in a previous image I loaded. I'm not too sure of the Anne Geddes connection, I'll have to go look at her site, although I'm not really much of a fan of her work to tell the truth. Many of my images are purposely shot at a slow shutter speed to bring a sense of movement into the images, which works really well sometimes. This was shot in natural window light as are most my images...
    Regards to all

  • British Library by tonyheps

    This is a great image, I would just comment that it is slightly off being symetrically balanced which I find uneasy on the eye. I think if it was cropped to be spot-on central with equal spacing each side it would be a more powerful and stunning capture.

  • tongue in cheek by dennisg

    Thanks Charlene & Michal,

    The blur was intentional to accentuate the movement of this energetic youngster - shot with a slow shutter speed of about 1/60th in low natural light. Usually I will try to get even more movement blur, so for me this one is actually lacking in that department. I like that it brings a bit of her personality through though.

    Regards

  • Fatface by dennisg

    Matt,
    Photoshop action? Hell, I did this the long way by separately sizing each of the images I wanted, cropping, adding the stroke, and dragging into a new sheet and setting out on a grid. I'm afraid I'm not quite smart enough to have set up any actions for this, sorry.
    Regards

  • Ellen by lollydeakins

    Wow, that's simply stunning! I love the composure, the image is razor sharp, the expression is excellent, and those beautiful eyes really make the image.

    It looks like this was shot with a studio flash and a large softbox? What equipment and apertures did you use?

    Regards

    Yep, seems OK size wise which is a bit of a relief. I think the image is a liitle dark though...

  • Cheeky monkey by dennisg

    Thanks guys, you're not kidding - this little package is a ball of dynamite and is on the go non-stop. But I guess this is pretty typical of most young kids and I think is what makes child photography so rewarding (when you get some great images) as you know you had to work hard to catch them...
    This image was shot on slide film, cross-processed, developed and scanned, and then converted to B&W in Photoshop.
    Regards
