    I tilt all the time, but this is my kitten "Cork". Cropped it closer for better effect...
    Tilted yes. thumb.gif
    Other than that - it's either blurry or OOF ne_nau.gif

    Yeah this particular shot has been through a lot. I keep making the fuile size smaller everytime I post it and this time i was able to make it bigger. Needles to say, it looks grainy now. O well, we're not supposed to be perfect here right? I'm actually sending in some shots that are just for fun. I thought that was the point here. If not, I'll start sending in better ones.

    Well, it's definitely not the level of the LPS, but other than that the idea is to grow in all senses, not just getting subject, composition or WB right...deal.gif
    So, by all means, please, send better ones..:-) clap.gif

    I was trying to figure and interesting way to shoot this railing, then I remembered this assignment...so I tilted the camera a bit and got this.

    You're welcome to! Just tilt the camera some more!mwink.gif
    BTW, tilt is usually harder to pull on the headshots, esp. pets, so you might as well try it on some more tiltable subjects first deal.gif

    I can see your point, here. Had it been a fast moving sports car shot at a rakish angle while it rounded a sharp curve on a hill, it'd be different. But this one does look kind of like the shutter opened just as I'd dropped the camera. . . . Which, I assure you, was not the case. rolleyes1.gif

    I'll try again soon. :D

    More tilt, less slop.
    Nikolai, here's my reshoot for Tilted. Shot with my point and shoot in the Crenshaw district. (I was supposed to be working at the time. mwink.gif)

    Tilted fun

    EXIF
    We had a break in rain so I took my lil one out today and snapped some pics for another challenge on a completely different board. I remembered reading about this challenge last night and snapped this crazy angle. As she was laughing her head off. I haven't shot like this before but I think it has some potential for future shots.

    Another n00b trying to catch up to the rest of the class
    Just took this the other day..

    main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=333&g2_serialNumber=4

    I messed around with this trying to come up with a good black and white, but I just like all the green too much and didnt want to take that from the picture.

    I like BW idea, but since you fond of the gree, why don't you try duotone with that green as a primary color? And try different channels as a source, you mught be surprised how cool it may look in any of the C, M, Y, R or B. BW adjustment layer in CS3+ is the tool to go. deal.gif

    Tilting at a train (not a tilt train):
    Ah, a classic! Good one! thumb.gif
    But next time just tilt a bit more, so the roof if totally vertical, and let it fill the frame (maybe in post) a tad more, so you have that great convergence.
    And what would be the absolute ultimate is a blend of short and long exposures, having the front sharp and the rest blurred. It's actually NOT very hard to achieve: have your camera on a tripod, manual focus, shutter priority. Focus, frame (on the previous trains). Set a short exposure time, probable continuous drive and try to catch the face. Now you have a few seonds while the rest of the train is passing by to switch shutter speed way low (40D/50D user settings are usually a life saver in this case, since it's one easy flick, but a fast knob operation would do the trick, too) and hit the shutter again.
