Challenge: Close Your Eyes (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: My favourites
Camera: Canon Powershot G11
Date: Mar 26, 2012
Aperture: f/5
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/800
Date Uploaded: Mar 25, 2012

1. Find lots of people
2. Hold a little point and shoot camera down by your hip
3. Snap away without looking

Confession: I only ended up taking 93 shots. At least I didn't advantage myself with excess choice.

This was one of about four or five compelling shots but by far the nicest.

Paul, I never award my ribbons after a challenge. This red was coming to you. I just missed typing it in due to a clerical error. You are a double-red winner.

wonderful shot Paul, congrats! Strange, it looks like it was shot from the level of HER hips, not yours (unless she is of a grown-up size) :)

Love this! I love the girl filling the right side, balancing the buildings on the left. I love the contrast in size between her and the crowd. And it's so cool that she has her eyes shut! This is appealing to me more and more, and is now my top pick. 10

Love this one. The passing girl just makes the shot and helps emphasize the height at which this shot was taken.

I like that the focus is on the crowd and she just happened to get caught in the frame. A sense of the movement of the city works here. ;)
