Suby In The House 

See  policyofsubster

Okay another chapter in my developement. Going to try different editing on my (and some of Sinem's) images. Let me know what you think.

As advised all week, taking you on a little journey, hope you guys really do like what you see

Another shot taken on Saturday, this little fellow was a charmer, showed no fear at all when he was whizzing about on the swing, There I was lying on the floor just snapping away, he was moving so fast but mamaged to get this gem. Love the shot to death, Just makes me smile everytime i look at it. Hope it makes you smile as well.

I like the shot but again I am not crazy about how this new processing affects facial features. I think it really works well for shots that don't have a focus on facial features. It just isn't all that flattering to me.

There is also some funkiness going on on his forehead along his hairline.

I would really love to see this treatment on a streetscape with architectural and natural elements like a river or something in it. smile
Suby & Sinem: LOL Laurie, have a shot lined up just for you coming tommorow. Sinem took the shot and I PPed it. Hope that is more to your liking. Suby

I think I agree with Laurie. I love the effect on the rest of the shot but I think a mask over the face or just less on the face would be best. I to think this would look really great on a street or something like that.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Faustina, I will make a believer out of you smile Actually liked the face like that hence the "funkiness" Oh well, maybe back to the drawing board?? Naaaa like it this way smile

Now this one I like he looks like the light in the midst of the storm. Like he can hold back the rains with the light of his soul. In-friggin-credible!!!!
Suby & Sinem: You said it better than I could ever have tongue Yep he certainly looks like that. Thanks for the comments
suby,

this is some great stuff. you are moving on to a whole other level with your editing and pping. i love the angle, and his fearless expression. i am so impressed with the fact that although he was moving, you were able to capture a perfectly still post. well done man!!!
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Nicole, I have to say as I taking this I was scared out of my wits, the swing was soo close to my face it was not funny smile Could actually feel the breeze blow past me face (and precious lens), but no the shot was just begging to be taken so there I was lying on the floor practicarly under the swing, the things we do for shots smile

Suby
P.s
Glad you like

Ok well you can remove the orange text about featured photoblogs as you're going off today, instead you forgot to ask them about your new idea on photoblog skill level concept.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Azhar, removed the orange text smile

What language does Azhar speak by the way - what with 'photoblog skill level concept'? Am I missing something? Is he really only 15? You must be kidding me...
Anyway babes, you know what I think about your shot - it is sperb and really does convey the mischievousness about the boy!
Suby & Sinem: Will explain to you later love, He definitely 16 tongue Yep it really does convey the little fellows mischievousness.
Love you

I neither like nor dislike the processing you've given this shot. It has its place dependng on its intended use.

I'm very impressed with the initial photograph though. Technically it's superb - you caught the swing at the top of its travel and the boy is looking directly at us. And the bravery to get down so close to a flying swing can only come from someone who never got hit on the head by one of those things when he was a child. Nowadays I keep a safe distance to protect my head, but more importantly, my camera.

This is a great alternative view of an everyday event.
Suby & Sinem: Colin wadddddduuuppp??? How you doing? I was bricking it when I was lying down on the ground practically UNDERNEATH the swing, and to top it all I had another swing just above me zipping closely by. Not a place I want to be again i assure you.

As to the intended use, it's supposed to be something different, something from the norm, If this was hung in your home, you a guaranted to have everyone who saw it asking & talking about the shot, the initial capture I know does that, but the PPing also makes it stand out. smile
Suby
I take a pause looking at this one --> I love it definitively
Nice subject with a great expression of the boy
Nice composition wich shows the movment
Nice processing wich give at the picture something as weird !
Great work - Thumbs up !
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Zebigleb, glad you like this smile

Now this is definately one of those rare "Oh WOW !!!" shots. Absolutely wonderful subject, angle, framing, cropping, pp-ing ..... I love this, and I hope the parents of this kid get a nice big print of it to hang on the wall!
Suby & Sinem: Eeecck, hope this is not cause I put the fear of god into you tongue (Yep folk, thew Subster is naughty). I am glad you like this one, was keeping this for the right time and knew after yesterdays post, it would come in handy.

Suby.
P.s
Still think yesterdays image was amazing

Not only is this an amazing shot, how difficult of a catch was this??? A perfect composition! AND...this is the best of the series thus far!! Nice work, Suby!
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Micki, lying on the playground floor with 2 swings whizzing by inches from my head and kids jumping all over the place is not really my idea of fun, but I got the shot, THANK GODsmile

I believe that it is not easy to shot.
Your shot has a great sharpness.
For me it is a little bit to dark.

Suby...I was just reading some of the comments and your responses. You often refer to hanging these on the wall. I was looking around my house when I realized that I do not have one photo, portrait or otherwise, hanging on my walls...With the exception of a wedding portrait in our bedroom (which was a gift)...Odd huh? I do have some on shelves, or atop a piece of furniture, on the mantle here and there and lots of coffee table books of photography, but none on my walls.

I was trying to think of many people; family and friends, who have framed photos hanging on their walls, and it seems most people I know have maybe a shelf, or a piece of furniture, or fireplace mantle with family photos on it, but not too many have them hanging on the walls.

Perhaps a handfull of my friends and family have a wall dedicated to family portraits going up a stairwell or in the hallways where there bedrooms are, away from the more "public" areas of their homes. It seems that most of my friends and family including myself prefer hanging oil or acrylic paintings and perhaps lithos of paintings on the wall and displaying photos in a more intimate setting like a dresser or other shelves. But then again most of my family and friends have colonial, traditional, or country style homes, and photos may be considered too contemporary for their tastes.

I plan on putting mine in themed series in printed coffee table books to display and share, not a photo album, but a bound shiny paper hardcover coffee table book. I've had a few requests from people to present the work I did for them that way as opposed to a traditional album or framed prints. It's interesting actually.

Anyway, you had me thinking about what people actually do with the photos, especially the portraits.

Awesome shot Suby.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Roger, glad you like smile Suby
Cool perspective and a disarming smile smile
Suby & Sinem: He is a charmer isn't he, tongue thanks for your comments.
Suby
overall an excellent frame... i adore the expression and how you conveyed something so difficult to capture in an seemingly casual shot. i am missing though a sense of depth/height... ie (forgive me if i am talking rubbish) the sky appears as if its a room's ceiling and all this takes place inside a room. i may be the only one - i just thought to ask whether its the processing that enhanced this feeling i had.

warmest wishes

This is way better than the swing photo from a couple of days ago. I really like this one. The lighting is better, his face seems closer to the lens. I think the building in the corner is very well positioned. Excellent composition with a nice tight crop. I was afraid I was becoming a grumpy old purist stooge, but you have posted an experiment that I very much enjoy. Good stuff Suby.
