I am entering in a competition ... again ...

Well it will be not the first time I am entering in competitions and contests.
Never won though  .... 2 honorable mentions ....
I won an Award in last October with my photo titled Imagine, but it was a total surprise because I didn't entered it in any competitions. You see sometimes ... how is Life !

Well I took a break, it is always hard on the mood ....  but the destiny made me to enter again.

Well the competition is about the High Key technique photography...
This means photos without deep shadows and usually low contrast.
Follow this link to the wikipedia article : High-key lighting or read this article on idigitalphoto.com to get an impression on what high-key photography is.

And well what  photo I just submitted ? .....   : Pluie d'Amour 
This photo is a perfect example of High-key lighting technique.
We will see.... I love this photo so much ....
I have submit it to some artistic photos groups I belong, and one of the group declined my photo, because : the nose was not on focus and the head was a little too much over-exposed.

Well I have explained the purpose of the photo, and my attempt to make only the eyes of Nahum stand out, by flooded all around with high lighting, using lamps, and high ISO on my camera,  and focusing only on the eyes, with a short DOF for to have all the rest of the image fuzzy ....

Anyway....
I don't expect to win, but it always funny to see I am always the only one to come with ferrets in photos competitions ... LoL...




















If you want to see the photography in bigger resolution click on the image above, to go to the DeviantArt page and  then click again on the image to see it full view, you will see those beautiful ferret eyes !


ENJOY !
