Waiting for Spring

By sputnki
Here's a shot I had ready to go almost a month ago. Tossed this chair out when we ran out of room and rather liked the look of it as the blizzard raged around it. This is what we do in April, wait for spring!

Just a tip... when you blur the background you need to cut out the chair onto a new layer, clone the background over the chair, then blur that layer.
(Otherwise the blur "seeps" into the chair area and will give a green halo.)
CS2's lens blur can do this if you mask the chair first Wink

But I still like it Smile

It looks like a story waiting to start, or perhaps another one that's all played out. There is an enigmatic quality to this that I really like.

Did you have to sit there very long for spring to show Doug.

tried to comment earlier but my keyboard was a little to sticky from my wifes spilt coffee yesterday.

Furnitue make a great subject in an unexpected setting

I like the slightly surreal feel to this. An excellent composition of course. We've had spring, summer and I think we've lapsed into autumn here in the UK now. I hope spring soon comes for you.

Doug, I always suspected that Canadians could lounge around in a blizzard and not even notice the weather. This shot says it all. Smile

hehe - great shot! liking the 'oddness' of it all. interesting how two everyday objects/scenes become something so very interesting when presented together like this.
