Same setup as "Abandoned or is it? " from the abandoned building challenge. The odd couple are gazing at their love nest fom days gone by. THe ghosts are my two daughters. It was completely black. They setup in front of the camera long shutter of almost 25 secs was split with them in the shot and out of the shot. I am very happy with the result

Greetings from the Critique Club...

Hi Coley :)

This photo scored rather well and doesn't require much of a critique, if any. Well done technique shots always do well on DPC. I can't really offer you much in the realm of improvement.

how the heck did you do that without leaving footprints? I'm impressed!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/03/2006 05:12:09 PM
I really like this shot... the cropping is a problem for me a bit as it seems a little off ballance but otherwise a really good entry and a high placement I'm sure... :)

A really cool shot. How did you do that without footprints? I'm not sure about how it fits the challenge, though.

I like it, but I would suggest the couple to be a bit less transparent.. Over all nice composition.

A brilliant and original idea for this challenge. For some reason I'm thinking Beetlejuice when I look at :)

This wouldn't have been my choice of interpretation for "odd couple", but I see where you're coming from, so I'll accept it as "on topic".
The photo itself is great! You got the timing spot on to achieve just the right amount of transparency. Perhaps the composition could be improved, but the scene and "props" are great !!!! The light and muted colors are wonderful. 8

These photos always make me jealous because I want to do one like this so bad and am clueless how to do it!! This one is executed to perfection! I love everything about it: the wonderful crystal blue night. The perfect landscaping, and that wonderful old abandoned (but still beautiful) house! I would honestly give you a 15 if I could. . .but you'll just have to settle for a 10 :)

Nice work, I love the ghosty effect, did you clone out the footsteps ?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2006 06:42:53 AM
Nice idea and well executed, the only thing that strikes me as "wrong" is the snow directly behind them, did you have to clone out a lot of it to remove footsteps? Just looks like it´s of the wrong colour or shape in comparison with the rest of the snow. Anyway a nice shot and good enough for an 8 from me.
