Beautiful silhouette & shadows, the density is perfect. My only comment is the halo around the subject but other than that Rui an absolute winner. Warm congrats on the EC award, kind regards.

Nao tinha reparado nos "EC" que ganhou, de repente pensei, não é possível que não os tenha, olho para a esquerda e vejo-os lá, aos 4... mas realmente o melhor prémio é a sensibilidade com que nos presenteia com o seu trabalho. Muito Obrigado pelo trabalho demonstrado, vou adiciona-lo para que consiga ver em 1? mao o seu trabalho.

Olá Rui, mudança de estilo? Deu muito bons resultados, adorei a foto e já vi que não vale a pena perguntar se o halo à volta da figura não é excesso unsharp (li a resposta que deu a outra pessoa) ;)

Um grande abraço...

Andrew, please see the above discussion. It's strange, but natural. The useful discussion is diluted by 'good shot' spam. I think I am too deconstructionist as well, see my second comment.

  0


Andrew Caldwell Andrew Caldwell   {K:18307} 8/4/2003
Great use of light and shadow, with strong contrasts and textures. The "halo" effect around the child, however, looks added digitally rather than natural, which I guess distracts me by calling attention rather than creating an illusion. Perhaps I'm too deconstructive, but I think the photo would have a stronger effect overall without the effect.

Great composition, wonderful lights and shadows, I like the child's position and the halo around his body, it seems an UFO, but it's not menacing to my eyes, I think he's giving friendship and love... Bye Max

Dave Holland Dave Holland   {K:13074} 8/3/2003
Thankyou for your note of explanation, Rui. I presume that the bright sunlight on his white T-shirt has caused white reflection back onto the shaded blinds, hence the apparent glow. This would explain why his head is not involved, since reflection off darker hair would be more muted. The varied shadow on the blinds might be from trees or other objects in the distance, shading the blinds in a patchy way. Certainly a very striking image. Thankyou for posting!

To Dave Holland and Marco Biancardi:
I didn't apply any dodge/burning effect in this pic. What you see, as a halo effect, is the result of a very low speed (probably...I think).
Here is the original without any treatment, only rotated 3 degrees to the left and resized.
Thank you for your comments.

bramatic backlit image, great emotional appeal; reminds me something about a church or a monastery; I'm a little disturbe by the haolo around the boy's shoulders, what is it? a dodging/burning operation? was it really necessary? The image is great all the same...
happy with the new camera?

Dave Holland Dave Holland   {K:13074} 8/3/2003
An interesting idea. Why did you dodge the silhouette of the boy? Did you burn the surrounding curtain as well? I feel ambivalent about this photograph. On the one hand, it looks like a sloppy dodge and burn experiment. However I think I see what you are getting at. That partial halo also lifts his image into a more magical form. Certainly it stimulates imagination.

Good thought, without the child this pic could appears like an usual shadow image, nice, but already seen. I like also the texture on the light parts, incredible details.
