This picture was conceived in response to a Kodak competition called "Colours of the Coming Age". I felt the "coming age" was the yet unborn children, and wanted to picture the hope for a better environment for them. I needed a kind of nuclear wasteland background so I used a photograph I had taken down near Aramoana, a half hour drive from here. It was taken approximately one week after a gunman committed mass murder there, killing 13 people in a tiny and peaceful seaside community, and I wanted to express my shock and sadness about that, hence the bleakness.

The figure was a friend of mine, four days before she gave birth to her twin daughters.

The flowers were brought in to work by a colleague, and as soon as I saw them I realised they were the element needed to complete the image, having as they did a sort of "exploding into life" quality, and being so colouful in the otherwise relatively colourless background.

Funnily enough, after I had split and flipped the background, necessary to fit it into the lighting of the figure, I found that it too, contained a very female shape, ie, breasts, and a vagina, signifying the previous generation before the woman.

This was never used for the original concept, as one of the requirements of the competition was that the image had to be on Kodak film, and the digital to film printer I had access to was only set up for Agfa film.. C'est la vie!

Nice shot Pam, I really like your positioning to get the cloud or jet stream to flow around the lamp

I vaguely recall some Canadian suggesting it many moons ago and I have been using it since. :)

Enjoyed your slide shows, specially the balcony garden, and will look at more later.

Thank you for your comment John. I did as you suggested, removing the flowers, to see how it looked, and ended up with what I felt was over half the image having too little detail. There didnt seem to be enough to hold the composition together.
Thank you, though, for your interest.

Really like this Pam. The detail and composition is spot on. Being super critical I would consider cloning out the flowers in the fg as I find them slightly distracting. Just a thought.

You are right John. I have several versions of this image and while the 8 x 10 version made it into print, this was a version sized for direct sending online, and I used this as it was already sized, instead of reducing the slightly wider one.

The difference would be that the online one would be about 3mm narrower if they were both printed at 8" x 10" size.
Well spotted.

This looks a bit different from the print you had at DPS Pam. Did you crop some off the RH side? I thought it was fine as is was.
