Weekly Challenge Winners: Weekly Challenge #447 - Centered Composition
Posted By atupdate

First the comments. Please be aware that any comments I make regarding changes in your entry are based on my personal taste and are only meant for your consideration. Batteries not included. Some assembly required.

sealonsf: The slightly out of focus on the background water buffalos brings the big guy in the center into prominence. Once my eyes found him they did not want to look any further. Nicely captured.

Hattifnatt: The statue and the people do communicate the same message. Photography wise I would have straightened the image and use a square crop to help emphasize the people.

aaacb: The technique used to capture the waterfall is spotless. I love how the foreground provides strong leading lines to the waterfall. The leaf on the front rock is a nice touch.

SpecialK: I’m not sure if this is a display jet or one at an airshow but it definitely is an eye catcher.

Vaskebjorn: Great colors and the eyes are the perfect focal point. However, the blank space at the top doesn’t add anything to the composition. I would have used a square crop to help balance the composition.

VILLAINofOZ: The gull looks like it has a little attitude. The slant of the legs and the angle of the object it is standing on makes it look like the gull landed on a small hill. This works well full frame or as a square crop.

RGlasel: A superb capture. The background provides context. The hands show where the ball came from. The ball looks like it is coming right out of the picture.

ramseybuckeye: Perfect technique on capturing the waterfall. I would have given this a vertical crop; as the amount of rock face overwhelms the waterfall and takes away from the depth between the rock face and the waterfall.

charliezap: Very nice. The blue color of the flower provides a nice background for the bee. The detail captured on the bee and pollen is outstanding.

Bruce Clark: At first I thought this image might benefit from a tighter crop. But when I tried it I almost went cross-eyed. The stem helps bring context to the flower on flower subject. Glad you left it in there.

Photojj: Love the warm lighting and the contrast on this image. The horizontal orientation of the image doesn’t provide any perspective on how high up the organ pipes are. Zooming back a little bit might have made this a stronger image.

Asgardian: I can see why the color of this rock caught your attention. The sharpness of the image can easily be corrected in post processing. If you are shooting in jpeg, you might want to bump the sharpness setting in your camera if you haven’t done so already. As for the image, it needs a much tighter crop, as the size of the tree overwhelms it.

djb47: interesting subject. This would be a fun one to play around with in post processing to see how many different looks could be achieved. The lighting is a bit uneven but I assume this was not a set-up shot but something you spotted.

jacamar: A very interesting image. The leading lines provided by the background make this unique. A bit more contrast would help give the background a little more depth.

eva: The background helps provide context to the subject and I can almost smell the food booths around the corner. I’m not sure but a vertical orientation when you took this shot might have given the strings controlling the marionette a leading line effect to the image.

mohb: Every time I stay at a hotel I look for an image like this. I have not found one yet. What makes your image work is the hallway divider in the middle add the door at the end of the hallway. Processing this as a black and white works really well.

And now the winners.


1st Place: RGlasel – A once in a lifetime capture.



2nd Place: aaacb – The rocks bring this into the well above average waterfall shot. Wish I could have shared it in this post.


3rd Place: charliezap – Love the color and detail. What more can I say.



Honorable Mention: To many to mention so I won’t. Superb job everyone.

Thanks to all that entered.

Hell has officially frozen over. And it's not related to the weather we are having.

It's not uncommon to find Izzy on the loveseat.


And Moe on one of the two dog beds.


Or visa versa.

But we never see the two lay down next to each other.

A few challenges ago I hosted one for the rule of thirds. This time I am looking for images with a centered composition. Most of the time you will find that images with a centered composition are strong candidates for a square crop but not always. I'll provide examples with and without square crop.

The challenge will close on February 1, 2019

The fine print:

Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.


Rules
1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to select and be the judge for the next week's challenge.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax/Ricoh (DSLR) camera can be used as well as P/S cameras.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

Examples:











Looking forward to seeing your best center composition and good luck to everyone.

Spotted a large congregation of birds in my neighbors trees (around 20 at one time) while shoveling my driveway. Didn't see the starling at the top until I started to process the raw file. It was very cold out but the tree was in the sun and out of the wind. Lots of puffy feathers.

It does sort of looks like it is rotating. Just an illusion I'm afraid.

In regards to my image, it is definitely post processing related.
