The Beautiful Game

Sinem In the House

The second of Sinem's post that I think deserves to show the original as I think the editing is a brilliant rescue.  I have decided to post the original of the shots so as one can see just how far she has progressed. Veiw original here -  http://suby.shutterchance.com/photoblog/6767.htm Suby

THE BEAUTIFUL GAME

As we are fast approaching the end of World Cup 2006, this is my humble attempt at celebrating 'the beautiful game' which has taken grasp of young and old, male or female of all nationalities, races, colours, creeds alike.

This was not taken on the streets of Rio De Janeiro, nor on the streets of Nigeria - but in the living room of a house in good old Camberwell... The point is it could just about be anywhere in the world.

Today I am celebrating - in my own way - the beauty and the glory of football ('soccer' for those across the Pond), the game that brings the world together like nothing else can, and shows us every four years 'Impossible is nothing.'

Muahahahhaa, the REZASAURUS IS BACK! Yeah bro, I'm mos def back. I have some good shots but not too many, because I have to relearn how to use a diff camera and understand it. So I'm still learning. My shots will be skimpy for a while because I haven't been looking with my photography eye, so go ahead and tear everything up if you'd like smile. I promise, I wont cry smile
Suby & Sinem: Awww, me will be gen tle with the Rezaman till Monday, then the kids glove come off. smile Even the Reza get hammered if duff shots are posted. So bro, any duff shots taken, post this weekend, enough time for you to learn about the camera, no excuses after that smile

Wow, Sinem, I'm blown away by this. I was shocked when I saw the original. It wouldn't have even occured to me to try and rescue this photo. I love what you have done with it.

It does amaze me that football can unite the world the way it does. There is something really special about watching something when you know that the whole world is doing the same. Now if only we could get the rest of the world to understand hockey...
Suby & Sinem: Thank you, Timmybomb; I used to delete more or less any shot that I thought would be useless until I got converted by Suby to the school of keeping them for a rainy day!
Hockey? Hmmmm.... I don't think so... smile Sinem

This, in my humble opinion, is FOOTBALL at its BEST. A lot of great footballers started their carriers from humble beginnings such as this. That infact is why the game is so beautiful. All you need is your ball and you, its that simple. This shot to me is a tribute to that very simplicity that makes this game the greatest in the world.

As for the editing, i am royally impressed. It takes vision. smile
Suby & Sinem: That simplicity which somehow is glorious is exactly what I wanted to capture in this shot; do appreciate you spotting it. Thank you. Sinem

Superb rescue! You guys should start off a photography university, if you alreday havent thought of.
Suby & Sinem: Photography university? Hmmmm.... That's an idea. smile Joking aside, I am flattered. Thanks. Sinem

Very successfully edited - you turned a pretty plain shot into something eyecatching. BTW - looking at the original and another you posted a few days ago - you've got a serious lump of crud on your sensor by the looks of it.
Suby & Sinem: Serious lump of crud on my sensor... sounds scary. Will have to get Suby to fight that battle. Thanks for your visit and comment, Steve. Sinem

This is a beautiful save. Great work.
Very nicely crafted. Photoshop is great but never let it be a substitute for taking good images. Sorry to say that Suby, but that's how I feel.
Suby & Sinem: Hi, Neil. This was taken by me, Sinem - Suby's other half. I can totally see where you are coming from but as Suby explained yesterday, the aim of posting these was to show how you can employ Photoshop to turn a mediocre or even shite picture into a good photograph. I took much better frames than this particular one that day which did not need any hardcore PP which I may one day post up, but the aim, as I said, was to show that with a bit of creativity and working knowledge of Adobe, any photograph can be rescued. Thanks for visiting and your comment. Sinem

Sinem, that post editing was great!! I would have thrown away the photo the moment I saw it from the display in the camera. You impressed me. =)
Lovely!
