    Default February 2009 Photo Assignment - Love/Passion/Romance and Red should be a feature

    Are sugegstions needed Marko or do you have it sorted?

    No I'm open to suggestions and prefer members suggest.

    since february is valentines day month - maybe 'love' or 'passion'?

    & btw, sooo glad to be back on here! december was a crazy month & with travelling for the holidays & getting back into the groove afterwards, i feel like ive been gone forever! nice to see the board has been so busy!

    obvious I guess but love, passion, romance sounds fine to me.

    There's LOADS of opportunity with love, passion, romance....
    I like it - anyone else?

    Hi there!
    Hope you don't mind a newbie joining in on this one!
    What about the colour red (as a link to Valentine's day)?

    Maybe both? Love,passion,romance with the parameter that red must feature with the photo.

    Nice image.

    I guess, seeing as there weren't any other suggestions that Marko is happy for "Love, Passion, Romance with the parameter that Red must feature with the photo" to be the months assignment?

    I did post in the weeeee minutes of February. HAHA. Thanks Mr. Aussie. Its kind of late over here. At 1:13 AM. Ugh, I should go to bed.

    Nice 1st shot - changing the thread title now - though I think I'm changing one word the word 'must'. That one word makes this assignment much harder and I'd like as many people to play as possible. Hope people are okay with that - and if an outcry ensues I can be persuaded to re-evaluate with a bribe of dark chocolate.

    Love, Passion, Romance with the parameter that Red should feature with the photo.

    I like your shot jjeling, nice way to fit the theme.

    Mad Aussie, both shots have their merits in terms of the treatments. My instinct was shot 2 all the way, but on a second look, I like how the ring and female fingers are sharper in shot 1 and direct the eye. So now I'm not sure which one I prefer and I think both are well done.

    Thanks Marko. And I'm glad I'm not the only one that couldn't decide between the two. It was almost 3 actually ... I have another version that used some bounce light to show more of the hands.

    Marko, thank you as well. Taking this image was fun, along with many of the others I took with it. It was actually a white light with a bluish tint to it from the LED light used for this. I never did care for it much and have always wondered what more I could do to it, then I saw this thread. I changed the hue, took care of a little noise, and there you go.

    Photography is more than just taking a picture and freezing the action, or leaving the shutter open. It is more than orchestrating the image with the stroke of a brush. Its the realization and explanation that reality is an isolated experience in which only a specific individual can comprehend during any given time period. - Your Truly!

    Maybe it's a stretch, but it has red, the suggestion of a heart and it is definately phallic (Ha Ha). Lol, I have flowers on the bean this week.
