Challenge: Off-Screen Expectation (Basic Editing I)
Collection: Favorites - Ribbons
Camera: Canon EOS-300D Rebel
Location: Easton, CT
Date: Mar 9, 2004
Aperture: f5.6
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/10
Date Uploaded: Mar 9, 2004

A last minute idea that my kindergarten model insisted we pursue. The "marlin" shadow is a mat board cutout and the fishing line is tied to a Jacuzzi nozzle. Unfortunately, the bathroom is a tight space that doesn't allow for wide angles and I wish we had knobs and a spout on one side. Oh well, we make do with what we've got. At least it's different!

Thanks for the comments! This came out much better than I expected given the tight quarters and difficult lighting situation. I am simply astounded at the number of people who didn't see this as an Off-Screen Expectation. It's pretty darn obvious! No, the marlin isn't on-screen. We call that thing on the right a shadow... it's the result of light shining on the object not visible on the screen. ;-)

Isnt it on-screen? This would have tolerated more contrast, though its a matter of taste.

I really like this setup. I especially like that it's so obviously a bathtub, yet that girl is convincingly fishing there!

Very imaginative! Nicely done.

Good idea, but why spell it out in the caption? The pic says it all. Why not just something like "Catch"?

Ingenuity strikes again! I guess she found the big fish in the little pond! Great!

Wow! The corner behind the girl could have been cropped though... but nevertheless a good concept :D Good luck!

Cute photo! Good job.

Well done in terms of drawing attention outside the photo - definitely one of the best. I'd like to see more color or action in the shot though, to make it more visually appealing.

Great idea!

Hahaha! That's cute!

Cute. Good use of shadow. I like the jiggle on the end of the fishing rod as well. Not sure I would have used B&W.

Very cute idea. The lighting seems a bit flat, though. She's a doll!

Way cool! Love her expression. Good work.

Well done, very creative and original shot. I love the expresion on her face, it almost makes the shot totally believable. Great Job.

Haha. Well imagined and executed.

i give you a very good vote... what about the production? is it postwork?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I've been through most of the entries and had to come back to this one to comment. i think this shot shows the kind of creativity that is lacking in most of the other entries. i hope you place in the top 3 with this one. mildly comic, yet very tense. i love it
