Some very cool images here. Well done to everyone. But as soon as I saw Kevan's shot, I heard, "Ding, Ding. Winner!"

Awesome shot, Kevan.

Thanks, Jason, for the nod. Terrific entries, all.

I'm a big fan of images where people are caught watching other people, and I thought Jake's image was awesome.

Funny, this topic of Jason's came up before my image was even taken. But I suspected that I might have an entry, as I had a shoot scheduled for Thursday of this gentleman. As is typical for me, I tend to pick out one image, edit it, and then give myself a day or two before turning on the juice and start editing the others. My subject is into wall climbing and bouldering, so the idea of adding a rock to some of his poses came naturally. He's an old work friend of my daughter's, and I hadn't seen him for over 2 years, so when he stepped off the train sporting his dreadlocks, I knew this shoot could be something special.

I'll get working on the next challenge and have it posted shortly.

Some words:

Jon:
Wonderful composition, you've captured the emotions in a beautiful way. Very well done, Jon.


lewismd:
A sleepy lion of stone. Your exposure is good, but in my opinion, the framing and aperture used are both off to me. The frame feels crowded, and the most of the lion is just little soft per using f/1.8. Now that brings to mind something I would have tried; the lion is tough, hard, and being carved from stone further exemplifies HARD. I would have purposely taken several frames well OOF, to contrast the Hardness of the subject. Hey, it's just how I think. Something to think about when you put the viewfinder up to your eye. Thanks for submitting.

Kevan:
Very good composition and exposure, and use of off-camera lighting. I also really like your post, I really like desaturated images. Also, good posing of your model, just very well done. Now, a bothersome nitpick that did not detract enough from your image winning. There is a white outline around most of your model, it's almost like your model's image was cut from another picture and then pasted on a different picture. Could be the lighting, could be the post, or I could be right...Still, a winner for me.

Mo:
Lovely composition, and excellent exposure. Were you on a moving vehicle? I ask becuase had you moved a bit over to your right, you could of centered the domed building in the background between the legs of the Eiffel. Did you go up the Eiffel?

Kel:
Nice take on the challenge, I enjoy seeing interpretations that go beyond a single definition. The colored lighting effect seems alien, odd. Did you explore other framing directions, or was this HD mounted, giving you limited composition? I like your direction, but I think you can do better. Nice effort!

Jake:
Yes, performing in public is hard for some...but obviously not the individual who is shredding a balancing act. On a hard case, no less. I like your exposure, and I do not terribly mind your center framing, but I find the scene cluttered and the subject blends in too much. Since most of the subject is out of framing, the objects in which the skater is balancing on become vastly important, and need to be separated from the background crowd. I need my eyes to find the objects, then follow upwards to the skaters legs. You shot at f/5.6, perhaps f/2.8 could have given you enough subject separation, but that all depends on your distance to subject. I'm not talking 85L blur, but just enough to bring OUT your subject from the crowd. Still, a nice capture!

waz0wski:
Once again, kudos go out to another who is looking outside the box. Thank you. It's a nice exposure, but there is little else beyond the word-play that keeps my interest. If possible, explore multiple compositional directions to turn a photograph into an expression. Good effort!


Thanks again for all of your patronage.


Jason

I totally agree with your comment about the white line and will be revisiting the image to fix it.
