Challenge: Light On White (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Sony DSC-F717
Location: Swansea
Date: Feb 25, 2005
Aperture: F2.4
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/500
Galleries: Animals
Date Uploaded: Feb 27, 2005

Shot in Bryn-mill park swansea - Sun was behind the swan so it blew out the background. Used curves to lighten it up further, but still maintain the texture of the features. I hope the background is white enough, thats my only worry.

Still my favourite of the challenge and glad to see that nobody picked up on the fact that this was more "white on light" than the reverse :)

I`m with you on the border...I think it works well.

Congrats on the high placing.

Beautifull!

Sweet! I love the bright yellow. It make the rest of it seem ultra white. Excellent capture. You've also made good cropping choices.

Wow I really had to study this for a while to figure out what it was - good job - don't care too much for the border though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/07/2005 07:42:32 PM
the border is a bit heavy, a little more contrast would be an improvement in my eyes, but overall this is one of the better images in the challenge

Good subject with good lighting. I feel that the frame is out of balance with the suble subject.

The one problem I have with this photo is that it took awhile to figure out what I was seeing. Otherwise, good job on exposure, nothing is blown out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/02/2005 09:23:15 PM
Neat shot. I kinda like the other swan shot in the challenge better. But you get props from me. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/02/2005 06:45:03 PM
Very pretty shot. I'm not fond of the thick border - it detracts from the picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/02/2005 03:51:25 PM
Great lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/02/2005 10:35:46 AM
This is my favourite so far..the only thing I see that may work against you is that your subject appears whiter than the background...hope that isn`t a problem as this is a great pic and deserves to be successful in my opinion.

03/02/2005 03:01:44 AM
I'm just curious, What am I looking at. A swan with a leaf in his eye?

The photo is great, but the border doesn't fit
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/02/2005 12:19:30 AM
border is too strong for me
