Another print competition coming up next week and here are my entries;
"After the Parade"
Nothing special about this pic of the Horse Guard's Parade ground other than the building's details are really sharp and I'm more or less using it to 'make up the numbers', so to speak. I'm guessing I'll get a 16 for this one.
"He Doesn't Suspect a Thing."
A fairly simple portrait but I like the girls expression in her eyes. I did have to fill in the background as it was filled with clutter and very distracting.
I'll put my hands up and confess to outrageously cheating with this one in Photoshop.
The photo was taken 'firing from the hip' type of thing as the bird suddenly splashed across the water and I didn't have time to compose it properly. As a result, the wings on both sides were cut off which is quite a no-no with the judges. I was bored one night and decided to have a play by extending the image 'canvas' on the sides, filling in the gaps, and cloning wing tips on. This is the end result.
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.
