Challenge: Abstract Black and White (Basic Editing)
Camera: Pentax K10D
Lens: Pentax A 50mm f/1.7 MF
Date: Aug 26, 2008
Aperture: f/22
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/3 sec
Date Uploaded: Aug 26, 2008

While not a true abstract, it is a form done in an abstract manner.

It remains to be seen whether or not it'll be accepted as such.

Post-Challenge:

Not terribly surprised by the score. 5.4+ is nothing to scoff at with a shot like this in a challenge like this. One person asked how it was done.

Here's the original right out of the camera:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/95000-99999/97166/120/717764.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/95000-99999/97166/120/717764.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

It's only been re-sized for the web.

Here's a small color/contrast edit on that:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/95000-99999/97166/120/717763.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/95000-99999/97166/120/717763.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Basically all I did was use some basic RAW conversions to desaturate it and bring out the texture. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it came out looking like a pencil sketching, so I ran with that. The shot itself was following a toddler in a park with the camera on f/22, with a slightly longer shutter speed to show the movement. Voila.

Easy.

I think this is a fabulous shot, and I certainly expected it to finish much, much higher.
