Challenge: Camera Phone Free Study (Advanced Editing VII*)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: HTC Touch
Location: Foothills west of Golden, CO
Date: May 12, 2011
ISO: 78

I hadn't planned on entering this challenge, but with foggy conditions in the foothills, I couldn't resist to go up and see what I could do with my phone camera. I quickly made a pinhole in a piece of thin card board with my pocket knife and went to experimenting. Had to try several different shape holes before I got the one I liked. There weren't very many subjects in the fog, and I hope this fence shot doesn't get killed because of the recent fence challenge, but I like it very much. I think it has a bit of a spooky feel and a bit of a fine art feel too.


post challenge: What great comments! I had no thought that this would do so well. Glad it was received so well.

Don, can't thanks enough for hanging this in your gallery. Thanks!

major dark side, dude. hint: the shape of the hole will also be the shape of your bokeh.

Hey, what a great technique! I must try that sometime. A haunting and touching effect.

Splendid - like peaking into someone's ear to see a projection of their fondest memory on the screen of their imagination.

Really good; excellent use of the obscured circular vignette. The more I see in this challenge the more impressed I am, and you are part of the reason.

I just finished watching an episode of the Twilight Zone on Netflix waiting for roll over. Will benefit from that.
