I have a feeling that this weeks picture may come in for some heavy (constructive) criticism!
I am becoming fixated on close up photographs these days, especially ones that use a part of the overall image to ‘show’ the whole image. This was a bad subject to photograph in that a) the sun was making it melt, and b) Sands was wanting to eat it!! After a few attempts to get a good close up, and failing, I went for the picture below with the deliberate objective of cropping it in Photoshop. I am pretty pleased with the result, but more pleased with the way I ‘approached’ the shot. I remembered to check the histogram on the ones I took, and zoomed in on the camera LCD to get a ‘feel’ for how it would look.
Anyway – as ever comments welcome and appreciated!
Very much a spur of the moment decision, I was fighting time as the ice cream started to melt, and I couldn’t get a ‘good’ close up picture in the light – so I went for this shot with a view to editing it later!
I have uploaded the picture (1920 x 1200) so if you want to download it you can here.
