Hi Angela! I'm not really one for gun shots out of context (is that really a Pun or what?) but I really love your corset.

As for the shot, I do like it but I would have preferred to have the gun in focus as well and to have it actually aimed at the camera! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Oh yeah, GREAT hair!!!

Welcome aboard! I look forward to seeing more from you!

The gun being out of focus is a bit distracting for me, but the rest of the photo looks great..

and as beautiful as you are it pains me to say, the gun should have been in focus and you soft. When the element of threat is solid your character then being out of focus becomes the mystery. Selective focus is a wonderful device of creating a different form of depth, and in this case the story would be seeing danger so clearly and the beast with beauty blurred - obscured, insecure.

Did that make sense?

Nice hair... oh, someone already said that.

I was thinking the same thing, but perhaps the photographer was so overcome with her beauty he forgot to check focus. But I cannot comment further Robert because you have displayed the image of the Isis Mouth. All who gaze beyond the gem in search of truth get lost in their own inability to see truth. But hey, lovely shot. Where was I?

I don't know guys. To me the soft focus on the weapon adds a bit of empowerment to the woman holding it. Maybe it's my feminine side, maybe not. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Okay, let's not explore your feminine side but you make an interesting point. If there is a story being told, a videographer or film maker would shift focus from the weapon to the woman and probably back and forth. It really isn't the weapon that will kill you it is the woman who can pull the trigger. Okay, I see what you mean. But please if you are going to shift to your feminine side don't change your avitar to a pale pink hat, purple shades and that whispy white cashmere top that you have.

when you shoot with a limited dof of say a woman's face from above shooting down at her, you don't make her chin in focus and make everything else soft. You don't make her chest in focus and lose her face. No, you make her eyes in focus and everything else is understood. If you have the gun in focus you see the threat, but the real danger is a mystery, the woman brandishing the weapon - especially when you can't tell what she's thinking or about to do...

When you go to the movies and see a horror flick, you are afraid of what you can't see, not what you can... same psychology. I am never afraid of the gun, it is understood that it will kill - it is inanimate though - the killer on the other hand is unidentified and very illusive. Helmet Newton always marveled me with what he didn't show, his power was in what he insinuated or implied, but left to the imagination.


This is all subjective, you say tomaaato, I say tooomato. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
