Challenge: Self Portrait in Minimal (Minimal Editing*)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Canon EOS-6D
Date: Aug 15, 2019
Date Uploaded: Aug 15, 2019

Yeah... I'd have totally taken care of those under eye things if some IDIOT hadn't suggested that this be minimal editing rules.


Dang it. I forgot...


That was me. I suggested it.

Darnsies.




*sigh*


At least they don't look like this in "normal" light.


But... For what it's worth... I took 1173 shots in over three hours... and this is all I got. (couldn't see them "live"... so just went for it! Ha!)

I did mean to ask for cropping in the minimal editing... that's a thing, you know... If you ask for it.

But.

I didn't.

I could have been... SO MUCH CUTER with cropping!!!

:D

It is a subtle difference, but I think fearless more apt.

I recognized this from a similar one you shot back in 2017 for Lens Effects.. which did almost as well. I think you've found a winning shot, lol. Congrats on the blue!

Haha! When you suggested this “Glutton for Punishment” challenge, I thought you’d win because no one else would enter... but you sure showed me. There are some AMAZING photos in this challenge and every one of my favorites won top spots... but this! Award worthy not because no one else entered, but because it’s freaking awesome! Of course it is!!! It’s YOU! Congratulations, friend! Welllll DONE!!!

Great job, Lydia. On the suggestion and the ribbon. Although, I wouldn’t have minded cropping. And, Standard editing.
