Lensbaby. Not expecting a winning or even average score. Had a lovely sunset I was going to shoehorn into the 100 years challenge.... but nope, you get this instead. I haven't entered a Lensbaby in awhile. ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', '/') + 1) .

P.S. Little can you tell from this, but it was over 80 degrees today. In January. 80 degrees.

Oh, and

TOLD YOU SO!!!

magical depth of field and blur
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2011 04:51:38 PM
I like the balance between dark and light and between close and far, each telling part of the story.

I like the sudden sharpness as the eye reaches the line and lightbulb... after being lulled into abstractness beforehand. (not voting)

simple but impressive... nice job

There is so much depth to this image, as though the very vapors of living are rising and dissolving into the ethers. A life line, illuminated for our convenience, keeps us from emptying ourselves into nothingness.

Love this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2011 12:56:23 PM
I love the sharpness and composition of the wire holding that simple lamp. But the shadows and light are equally as interesting. Wonderful photograph, terrific b/w conversion, hope it does well!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2011 11:22:56 AM
Well done! Like your perspective and depth of field.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nicely done. Great job with the selective focus. It's position in this photo makes us ponder top portion of the photo, then find the striking point of sharpness.
