Assignment# 3: 3

edited April 21, 2016 in Assignments
The One turned out to be difficult. Let's see if getting Three would be any easier/harder. :D

The goal is to deliver the idea of three (without cloning, erasing or manually coloring, naturally).

Father, Son and Spirit. RGB. Triplets. Ménage à trois. Three colors. Three trees. Triple fork. Pair of threes (although this is something more like two, ain't it ?:-).

Anyway, same basic rules: go and shoot.
Fresh pics only, please.
PS as your heart desires, but no cheating :-)

Good luck, everybody! :thumb

Rules, index, etc.

    Man... I so miss my camera. I've missed assignment one, two and I'm now going to miss three. Which makes three, but in words. Hopefully the camera will return to me in the next week, so I get to participate!
    enjoy being here while getting there

    As usual, by the end of the week = sunday.

    Hey Nikolai, I'm right, am I not ?

    Salut

    Pretty much!
    It's simply that
    a) there no no prizes
    b) next weekend there will be another one, and so on.

    If anyone feels compelled to post in any old one - please do so (I can't lock the old ones anyway:-), but I'd suggest you spend your bandwidth on the most recent task :-)

    It's funny how three is easier than one, no?

    I remember something from the shootout to the extent of
    "If it's one - it's done, if it's many - it's none",
    referring to the rules of composition and usual - unfortunate - overcrowdness of the nowadays snapshots.

    Oh well, let's proceed with three this week :):

    So here's mine:

    img-0007.jpg

    Oops ... the weird-looking whitish rim at the bottom is part of the fence. Bad cropping I'm afraid ... kindly ignore the bottom pixels! Didn't notice when the image was on a white background.

    I did a bit of cropping and some considerable sharpening, as the leftmost horse was slightly out-of-focus. The rightmost also is, but that hardly disturbs the composition IHMO.

    Even I had a hard time making this one pop. Really should have used a fill flash or gotten them to sit on the other side of the bench. Really neither was an option (didn't have the flash, NO PICTURES).

    Still there was a good lesson here. If your subjects are children, buy them ice cream. Can't hardly go wrong with that, can you?
    If not now, when?

    This picture is damn greeat ! thumb.gif
    The flash would have destroyed it : you got lucky not to have it.

    The one little default of this picture is the cutted hand on the bottom...

    But this is definitely a great child's picture thumb.gif (again)
