Challenge: Far Side: Gary Larson Tribute (Advanced Editing IV*)
Collection: Challenges
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
Location: Eugene, Oregon
Date: Sep 10, 2006
Aperture: f/13
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/250
Date Uploaded: Sep 14, 2006

Processed from RAW

Shot lying on my back on the dance floor at my nephew's wedding. 10mm focal length, 430EX Speedlight in afternoon light.

A relatively straight shot: the values are pretty much as it came from the camera, except there's a little dodging on some of the darker faces, not much at all.

HOWEVER, per the special rules, the descending arm has been cloned off and dramatically increased in size on a new layer :-) And of course text is added...

I wasn't gonna enter this challenge, but then I thought "what the heck" and jimmied this one up, just 'cuz I love the looks on the faces.

dumb caption. great title...should have been a stand alone with just the title and the shot.....or no title and your current one as the caption...anyhow i'm picky but i'm also a die hard Larson fan and know his work/ dry sence of humor well.
