Challenge: Edward Weston (Advanced Editing VII*)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Leica M9
Lens: Leica 35mm f/1.4 Summilux M Aspherical MF - Black
Location: Eastern plains of Colorado
Date: Mar 29, 2011
Aperture: f/8.0
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/350
Date Uploaded: Mar 29, 2011

What an interesting and frustrating challenge. I shot more than 300 images, on at least 4 separate shoots. Studied, watched videos, read web pages, viewed Weston images over and over again. I had 6 entries for which I was not happy with any of them. Then I un-submittted and decided I wasn't going to enter. Then I went though all my shots again, one last time and remembered that Weston was only trying to bring out the simple essence of the thing he was shooting. So I decided to enter a plain landscape shot, but it's more than a landscape shot. Look for the hidden meaning, and please vote your heart.

This was one of my highest marked entries. I also thought that it was very Westonian, whilst not being a standard Westonian shot, so a lot of extra points in my book. You definitely deserve 5th place after all that hard work. In the end, of all the entries, this image spoke to me most.

You've outdone yourself. Probably one of the best picture you've done!

And there you have it: front page. Incidentally, I've done the same ritual on more than one challenge :-)

Really like this composition...particularly the moody, dark feel to it.

lovely b/w image - it almost has a bit too much emotion for a Weston - but the crop is right, the conversion is solid and the composition is really good.
