Ramia's call

Thank you for all the support recently with these images, I thought that they would not be well recieved at all!

I'm going out on a limb here. I have fiddled about with this one in PS a few times but just end up making it worse! So, this one is untouched. Except my fav crop of 11 x 8.

Camera set on b/w - green filter - red filter + vaseline.

All the best. mal

This isn't a morning before coffee shot is it. Please observe the no sleeping on the pier signs. smile

The light glints on the bike and helmet are great as are the streams filtering through the bench. Such a wonderful sense of movement at that shutter speed. Beautiful shot and no further pp required.

Hmm, I think it should come with a flashing light warning. There's a huge sense of movement, but somehow it's all a bit unsettling/distracting.

Hmm, that's me off your Christmas card list wink

You still rock, mate. Keywords, Avant Garde photography; still number one in my book of favourite photographers.



Cheers,

Gosh Mal, This is great. It looks like you could have used a star filter. The lighting is fantastic.
I am astonished how much atmosphere you can put into a shot like this with a little dab of vaseline.
I like the dreamy feel of this one.
Waouuhh ! great ! I like !
The master of all blurs. I really like this.

Vaseline? Greased lightning!

Actually, the title is what directs me in this pic, Mal. There's a sense of urgency that comes through with this for me. Whether it's Mom calling for supper, or the Universe saying "GO!" Just do it!
Quite interesting...like it a lot Mal.
Liked it
Looks like the little one is just or has just learned how to ride that bike. The blur and your usual crop are fine, I think some of the others may not like this because there's movement in two differnet directions. Raymonds right Avant Garde it is.

Well its made me stop and look for longer than I normally do in SC land....yep works for me, sense of moving and movement not contradicting each other, now I'm assuming the green/red are 'in' camera filtration coz I,m scratching me head over the metadata and normal filter multiplyer combination conflict ?????? Or do you live closer to the sun than me???
Absolutely great. I love the sunlight glinting from the bike and the rider's helmet. I hope you've got a big tub of vaseline!

Groovy, Mal. Really like the results.
Well Mal, that quite unexpected ! I really don't know what to think about it... There's - I know - an interesting technique behind your image, a smart frame, a lovely mono tone... both well convey to the movement and the dynamism... and at the same time, can I tell you that I wish I have seen more details, faces of the children, their smiles and laughs... I can guess them, but are they here ? Thanks Mal for your regular visits and so nice comments ! smile

The light captured on his helmet is cool. I am not sure its the best blur you have done of late. If you weren't Mal I wouldnt judge you so hard though!
really strange movement here mal! I like it a lot!
