Challenge #221 - Inside Home
_______________

Submissions

Many thanks to all the participants.
I had less entries on my previous challenge as host. Now I have more beautiful pictures for judging and that means a harder decision. Well... to the point.

As always, these lines reflect my own preferences. It is my hope to be as fair as possible.
  • Gamlejohn – G10 – Oatmeal
    Beautiful elements to start the inside home theme. A nice framing of the young Mom concentrated on the bowl on the background and the main subject on the Baby, interested on everything around him, not enough hungry after a few spoons full of oat.
    Initially, I thought there was a slight focus blur or motion blur on the baby’s face, but a closer look made me think that some extra sharpening to compensate for the resized image is all what you need there.
    By the way, he will share the camera with you quite soon :).

    Welcome to the forums and to the challenges!. A nice coincidence, I dropped my first post on a G-series challenge when I joined here.
    -
  • Maureen Souza – Pro1 – My Amish Quilt
    Are your ancestors connected with Amish people? They have beautiful handcrafts, either to build a collection or to use them as models for your own hobby. Either way, it is a lovely quilt and the picture, as usual, in sharp focus. The subtle shadows on the white parts are interesting and require a careful balance of light. I cannot infer the size of the quilt from the picture. I can imagine it hanging on a wall or covering a bed. A small glimpse to its surroundings might help with my curiosity.
    -
  • Mike53545 – G10 – Pizza time
    A warm pizza is always welcome at any home, and the way you made your picture almost surrealist with two main elements is clever. I like the blur produced by the rotating dish and the sense of heat that irradiates from the heater due to the red light that it casts on everything.
    I spent some time guessing the exact setup for your image before I decided that it is better to ask about it.
    -
  • Michael Wells – G9 – Teaching
    The white light from the window and the warm light from the right create a great mood for your picture. The expression of their faces transmits both concentration and amusement. Music is essential, I think.
    You are lucky to have at home music from real instruments.
    I can imagine how the clarinet fills the house with its music once the rehearsal is over.
    I am wondering about the possibilities, may I ask about them? Who is at home? The teacher? The student? May be both of them?

  • midnight_rider – G10 – Tangled up in yesteryear.
    Black on black with a splash of golden letters and the subtle color of the film strip. A nice camera location and zoom setting for the capture. The volume, that is produced by the shiny lines of the body and lens and by the soft light reflected from the film, makes the picture simple, yet difficult to achieve. Simple as the operation of the T50, with only three buttons, including the shutter release. Certainly a lovely feature for us, users of high end digital cameras that are entangled with more buttons than fingers we have.
    -
  • liannallama – G10 – Proud Uncle
    The sequence from right to left of the frames with pictures of elder relatives, the happy and proud uncle and the peaceful sleeping baby describes the continuity and warmth of a lovely home quite well.
    The light from the window and the darkened background help on the description. Beautiful picture for 'inside home' too.
    -
  • Kevan_G9 – G9 – Summer Living Room...
    Ah! The ‘outdoor from inside the fence’ that I was waiting, and a nice one.
    Where I live, the gardens are green all the year; I can imagine the big difference of this place on winter or summer though. You found the way to show that this living room, windy and sunny, is ready to receive people from inside the home or, as we know a little about you, a thirsty raider returning from a bicycle raid with some new photos :)
    The only minor drawback, the dog is slightly cropped out, I think.
    -
  • Car – G7 – Cuddle on the couch
    Mighty, Big, Black. Certainly, I may stay behind the fence even after seen the cute girl snuggling to the dark giant. The position of the camera, close to the floor, helps to show the relative sizes of these dwellers of another warm home and the confidence of the young girl helps to understand that there is a lovely pet there. You achieved a precise balance of the light from the window and the fill flash.
    -
  • kitacanon – G3 – Inside Home: ...is he asleep yet....?
    I was missing a picture focused on the small figures that are part of our homes.
    The diffused light from the left produces a pleasant soft look to the picture.
    While the larger figures remain an important part of the picture, the empty space in the top center and the natural darkening of the top corners draws the attention to the smaller ceramic figures. I’m not sure if you was after that specific effect, but I liked the result as I see it.

Michael Wells, over to you, congratulations. Good luck with the new challenge.

Description of the theme:

People, unusual objects, your favorite places, everything works as log as it is inside the home.
Better if you have a tripod or the camera firmly still atop a table to shot creatively in available light, but flash or special lighting is also allowed.

STICK TO THE RULES (see below). Size is extremely important. A good title is always nice. Do not forget your camera model.

Enjoy

Honestly, I wished to have nine top places to fill with the pictures submitted.
I had a hard time reducing them to three.

Congrats Michael, Liannallama and kitacanon.....great entries.

Rafael, the work you did to post the photos with their owners and the winners is outstanding...thanks for all that hard work. To answer your questions...no, i have no ancestors who are Amish. I bought the quilt from an Amish family who sold their work out of their basement when I was on vacation in Pennsylvania some years back. It hangs solo on the end of my hallway wall where I can enjoy it every day.

Thank you Rafael for the challenge and your critiques...I look forward to the next challenge for using the G3...I've only had it for a couple of weeks...
You encouraged me to "test" the G3's ability to shoot in low light...and as I do with new lenses for my DSLRs, I often sit up in bed and practice focusing on these figures, and others I've arranged on the shelves...so, this shot wasn't much of a photograph as it is a theater set :)
...and I did arrange the dolls to get the effect you recognized...the large looming over the small...and I'm happy it got across...most photography I shoot is not so "set up", so this was fun...and I'm very happy with the results this camera puts out...
Thanks again...
