1st place
vanishing point by lsdsoft

icedancer: What a gorgeous angle and view, showing us all the detail. Just gave this a high score in VB

lsdsoft: Thank you all !

Flmngseabass: WOW!!!! That's one cold spot!!

colocolor: Congratulations on winning the dof contest...Well deserved! Great shot - just makes me cold and nervous. Helllllp, I'm falling... All kidding aside, I love the way you captured the natural tones of the snow and ice and lost no detail. Snow is so difficult to get detail because of the specular highlights. The angle gives a great leading quality that takes you right from the foreground to the cloud-covered distant peak. Just a fabulous capture. anne :-)

A Little Girl's Dream by dancer3660

Jimbobedsel: Very nice. I like the DOF in this.

dancer3660: Thanks so much everyone. I'm really glad people like this picture as much as I do!

DTwiegraphics: I like how there is a "deeper" meaning to this shot for you.

purmusic: :o)

You're a dancer? Really?

Kidding, kidding.

Could tell by some of your earlier images by the positions/posturing you assumed. Of which, I forget now (might have been 'first position' that I am recalling in one of yours.)

That stuff aside ... I like the DOF you employed here.

And of course, me, my fingers and pea brain have a suggestion ... hope you don't mind. As I was just thinking about this myself.

Your lighting source.

The 'magical hours of light', could still be used.

I found that the combination of early morning light in my case, as the living room is the room that gets hit by it (easterly'ish orientation) and achieves a warm, lovely glow ... diffused by the curtains that I have hanging ... really kicks things up a notch or two inside.

A companion image to your photo here, perhaps?

As the light quality presented here resembles, to my eyes, that of stage lighting. It works, of course on that level and maybe as you intended.

The background figurine looks like Royal Doulton, but I am not familiar with that of the one taking center stage? (Just curious, that's all.)


Last words, don't underestimate passion. That is def something that does translate on stage. And ... to your audience.

Much like your image here. :o)

icedancer: He sure is a very handsome looking owl E J. Beautiful detail and colours. Take care and see when you get back

auroraobers: I love this! We have an owl living on the property, but we've never managed to find him. Great shot!
