Long Neck

Comment:
Cool angle. Would not have realized that you took this with a fisheye lens, since you have done a good job of controlling a lot of the distortion. The peakaboo of the bridge adds a lot.

It's All In The Eyes

Man, does he look pissed! Great work to get the eyes so sharply in focus with the shallow DOF.

This feels like an old, hand-colored image. Especially with the hat, it gives it a very 1930s feel.

Cool clouds - somewhat ominous feel to this, despite the color.

Really well done. I like how the texture of the birds feathers harmonizes with the dappled surface of the water.

A tried and true subject matter. No flash - I sometimes get this vignetting with the Land 250 when I am very close to a subject like with this shot.

Okay, the most accurate and least pretentious answer is that I was in a weird mood when I came up with the name. Sometimes weird is good, other times its just weird. Many of the other abstracts I have taken for this side challenge I was drawn to because of some accidental resemblance to actual artist work, but this one I just like the loose, but chaotic, order of the pattern of the subject - which literally was a pile of sticks.

The more pretentious answer is that the "Social Contract" title was a oblique (as well as highly obscure and ultimately unsuccessful) play on the "pile"/"bundle" of sticks idea. I send a PM mea culpa to pamb as well as follows:

I was being a little (probably deliberately perversely) esoteric with the title. It was a (highly pretentious) nod to the philosopher John Locke, who is widely considered one of the key inspirations for the United States Constitution. One analogy that he uses was comparison of property rights to a "bundle of sticks." The image is part of a pile of tree branches (aka "sticks"). Locke's idea is sort of an idealized view of personal rights and the interactions of humans in society. My pile of sticks is messy with only a rough organization - more like real life, one might argue.

I'm usually not that esoteric with my titles. And as a wise person once said, "If you have to explain the joke, it just ain't funny."
