Self-Portrait #3

Under Fire

Posted on Tue 21st Nov, 2006, 3:42pm

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/30, Aperture: f/4,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: None,
Lens: Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L, Focal length: 35mm,
Captured: 18th November 2006, 5:07pm,

John's suggestion for the processing of this shot was that I should add in some tracer bullets coming from the bottom left. Cheers John :)

It was very windy for our trip out to the beach but I'm very glad we went. This girl was skipping along and, despite it looking as though she's being blown backwards in this photo, I still like it.

What are tracer bullets? Interesting shot!

You have really captured the feeling of the wind well, I particularly like the framing of the image with the pier running into the background. Mal

I like the pastel colouring in the background and the figuire skipping really makes it.

The sand's whipped clean and we're nit sure about the figure - being blown back or forward - I like the uncertainly all against the background of something alleged to be fun.

*not sure and *uncertainty

Jide - tracer bullets leave a streak of light as they travel through the air so that people can see where they're shooting in the dark. Hope that helps :)

She looks like she is about to be shot across the shot which I like and the clarity of the wheel and the buildings is nice.

Excellent, and this does a much better job of capturing the reality of the day than the two shots that I've put up.

Brrrr looks as cold as I imagine it to be... I like the nice cool toning you have gone for in this.

Reminds me of those posters/film/t-shirts the name of which escapes me, but I think Rich has the T-Shirt version of the image I'm thinking of. Helpful Comment? Let me know on 1-800-BORED.

I really like these type of shots. the stillness of the background goes great with the person's movement

I like the subdued colours. It feels cold.
