Challenge: Candid II (Advanced Editing III)
Camera: Panasonic DMC-FZ10
Location: On the way to Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary, India.
Date: Jan 2, 2005
Aperture: F/4
ISO: 50
Shutter: 1/100

Date Uploaded: Jan 2, 2005

This photo was taken from my car window while a motorcycle was just crossing us. Since I was only driving the car, it almost stopped while clicking the snap. I had to add a bit of motion blur to the outside world to give a touch of movement.

On the editing side, I had just added some motion blur and changed the brightness and hue after separating the outside image. Honestly, the frame looks bit cluttered.

I love this photo! Great colors. The steady reflection in the mirror contrasted with the blur of the passing cycle. A ten!

What can I say, this is one of the top candid shots I've seen so far. You got everythink in this shot. Top marks from me. Only think I would have change is that yellow border, as I've been told before ... these kinds of borders in a frame never improve the shot but take away from it. For Your Info. Still awesome.

Great entry! Many layers here to keep your interest. Through your vehicles window a passing motor cycle and group of people, captured in rear view mirror, traveling by foot. Your title ties it all together. Not sure about the yellow border but it seems to work. Hope to see you in the top three.

Quite a unique take on this challenge. Love the motion blur in sharp contrast with the figures in the side view mirror. The distinction is very effective, I think. With the oncoming motorcycle within the frame as well makes for great timing.

I like your border and it complements the vehicle. Overall a nice capture.

Remarkable, out-of-the-box take on the challenge. There's a slightly distracting sliver of background showing upper left that should be cropped out. Possibly crop down also so the intersection of windowframe and extended arm of rider is at the top, not much of a crop. The critical sharpness in the reflection juxtaposed with the blurry reaility outside the window makes this picture.

This shot is intriguing. I am challenged to wonder how the blurred grass and motorcycle are in motion while the mirrored image is in perfect stop motion. Is this really a candid of the cyclist or those on the side of the road behind? The colors are strong and work well with the border but the subjects seem too small to be of any significance to the concept of candid. There is a minor distraction on the Left Top that should be cloned out.

Technically, this is an over the top interest factor and while the idea of snapping a shot of someone from through a mirror would be candid, some of the challenge validity seems lost in the inability to see those who have been captured in any detail. I will be interested to see/read how this was done without multiple images.

Great Job! Tough shot to capture.

Really like this shot. It may have benefited from selective desat, where only the mirror reflection is in colour and the rest is in bw or other tone, only because the yellow is so overpowering. But that doesn't keep me from voting this highly.
