There are occasions when you want to defy the laws of physics, to enter the realms of the impossible – in this scene from a New York ferry I wanted to focus closely on my beloved’s face (not the Elise) whilst capturing a landmark in the reflection of her sunglasses. No amount of dodging around with apertures and depth of field was going to work – the solution – ‘simples‘ – cheat 🙂
Cheating or no, the effect is fabulous.
You are too kind JDR – many thanks, RJD 🙂
Well it turned out good – and very interesting too. Good stuff. MM 👍
Thanks Mick – the shadowy figure in the baseball cap and white tee shirt provided the commentary. Very entertaining, I think he modeled himself on early Dustin Hoffman.
I do so love a cheat 🙂
Me too MrsCarmichael – we shall inherit the earth 🙂
Not sure how you cheated but the effect is very lovely! 🙂
Many thanks (the Statue of Liberty is an entirely separate overlayed image 😉 )
Nice one! 🙂
This is a fantastic shot, and a great entry for this week’s challenge 🙂
Thanks for the encouragement, much appreciated
You are most welcome 😉
Excellent cheat – and you didn’t have to admit it!!! Great shot, very creative!
Many thanks Tina – I think I did, I don’t think that shot is optically possible 🙂 ….plus the Pam was taken somewhere near the Brooklyn Bridge – not the best place for a reflection of the Statue of Liberty 🙂
I love how that shot turned out, no matter how you took it.
Many thanks Janet
that looks really nice and a great idea 🙂
Many thanks, much appreciated
