Count Me Out!



  1. I thought the rocking boat comment a bit weak. It hadn’t occurred to me when I looked at the image. I think my brain is quite capable of determining front to rear position in a 2D image unless someone deliberately sets out to trick! What I would say was to me the main subject is the horizontal chap with the rest being there to paint the picture. So I desaturated the background and adjusted levels a bit on the horizontal man with the intention of using colour to emphasise the man. I did try a mono conversion but nothing seemed to work so then I tried playing with colour.

  2. Thanks Rex, the chap does stand out better. I hadn’t thought of doing that. He was actually a couple of miles down the road from the group, in the middle of nowhere, so I could have put him in with space between him and the boat, but when I did it I thought he looked right.

  3. Well as a composite that has been done well. Probably the overcast sky and diffuse lighting has removed the problem of shadows.

  4. Thanks Rex. Nun’s Cross was a composite too. That’s probably why I’m fed up with them as they took a while and it was tedious work. I have a number of ‘Rex Quotes’ on a post-it note above my computer, one being ‘Try to get it right in camera!’
