Can This Be Classed As Creative? Any Chance?

Sun Aug 31, 2008 7:42 pm

Hi all,

Dug out this image this evening, taken years ago at LHR. I was just mucking around waiting for the sun to fully rise and spotted an opportunity for something different.

Big version: Width: 1024 Height: 683 File size: 296kb


Now obviously the 'plane is slightly blurry but that of course was intentional.

It's in the queue - shall I pull it or leave it be?

Cheers,

Karl

I would leave it in the queue. For me it's a nice shot.

It actually reminds me slightly of Tim's image that was added to the db just recently, which was used as an example of what can be done with the new creative rules. I like it, but the "creative" label is very subjective, so I wouldnt take any advice of mine!

Now one thing I was also going to ask about the new creative rules.....

Do they mean that we can do such things as play around with hue and saturation, for example, to enhance the look of the image?

I played around with the above shot of mine and came up with this, which in my opinion looks far better.

Big version: Width: 1024 Height: 683 File size: 383kb


All opinions more than welcome!

Thanks,

Karl

I'm no expert, but here's what I came up with:

I personally liked the first version... the second two are little over-saturated/contrasty.

I'd definitely put it in the queue... good luck getting it in!

I like the original the best. I think it is quite creative.

Good Luck!!

OK, thanks for all the pleasant commenst guys! I agree now, the original is more subtle than the edits and seems to capture the moment in a more natural fashion. The light appears softer and more aesthetic.

I'm very surprised everyone likes it as I really thought folks seriously might not - especially since this is the first of a limited creative selection I've chosen to upload.

Of course more opinions welcome, good or bad.

Thanks again,

Karl

Quoting JakTrax (Thread starter):
Now obviously the 'plane is slightly blurry but that of course was intentional.

Now, personally speaking, regardless of whether it would be acceptable or not, for me the blur is too little for being intentional.

It just doesn't really work with a very slightly blurred aircraft. The time of the day (i.e. sunlight) is not too favourable too for the shot, but that's just my opinion.

Next time, maybe simply focus on the poles and use a shutter speed like 1/50th. Should be no problem to keep the cam steady and thus the poles sharp, but you'll get some mighty nice blur  Smile

The first is the best. The others have too much contrast and grain.

Yeah, thanks. Nail-biting wait though, while these new creative rules are still being defined.
