I took quite a few shots of our youngest two playing in the shower this evening, and think there may well be some that are much better than this one, but when I decided to sit down and do some work on them my computer crashed. Four hours later, or thereabouts, I've reinstalled the operating system and have just about made the midnight deadline for today.
So, here's a rather rushed shot, with no post-processing other than a Curves adjustment and a hurried bit of sharpening, but I quite like it nonetheless.
This is a superb photo, I really dig it! Very nice, indeed!
Note 1: Did you ever notice how often you say "I quite like it?"
(Sorry, just thought I'd finally point it out.. )
Note 2: Can you guess why there isn't 15 comments on this photo in the first hour after you posted it? Do you think it's because your post missed the rush-hour of people who already are accustomed to the approximate time you post daily? ... I don't .. ;)
In spite of that, I like this. I think it's because this photo is a lot more natural looking than the previous few.
It's abstract enough not to embarass them when they get older and look at it, but it has enough detail to show their innocence and happiness. If that makes any sense.
Add an extra r in the word "embarass" up there..
I love this, it reminds me of my favorite children's book, I think it's called Rainbabies. I have the urge to go find it now. I would really like to see some more of your shots before and after processing since I'm trying to figure out what exactly I should do with my photos. I really like the different effects you get.
I really like this one. Very clear and cute. The focusing on the water drops really helps. I like it :)
well for me your back with this one. I really liket it. I guess that the fact of not having 15 comments in the first hour after posting this one maybe is really because you pass the usual hour for posting. I really like this one. Is abstract but very clear at the same time. :)
Great shot! kids are great!
I love this one, I think it definitely is one of your stronger ones.
Quite emotive....I like it a lot.
It seems that you turned the blog into a job - talking about meeting deadlines.....
I have to add that I meant no disrespect with my previous post. I read "note 2" again just now ant it hit me differently than what my original intention was. So if I caused some sort of upset, and before John writes me another "Dear Miklos" i'll say I'm sorry.. :)
Sweet pic...I've forgotten how much fun it was to play in the tub...thank you for rekindling some nice memories of own youth!
This picture brings back fond memories, when we were little and wished to grow up.
I like this picture a lot, they both are so cute.
I just wanted to tell you that I visit this website everyday; I turn on my computer only for taking a look at the new image.
And every day I pick out a new wallpaper; I love your pictures. My sister has an online photoblog too, but her pictures are never that graceful. If you want to you can take a look at her website (url)
Miklos: you're a cynic, but no apology is necessary.
Caroline: the original for this one is much flatter and under-exposed by two thirds of a stop to control the specular highlights (the highlight areas with no detail) so the only real differences between the two are that this version is lighter and has a greater contrast.
Hungaro: it's not so much that I consider it a job, I just really hate the thought of missing a day ;-)
I like that it's not more processed, it would have lost the candid feeling if you'd done more.
This looks so much more different right now than it did to me last night at 3:30am when I came home drunk and decided to sit down in front of my laptop and look at your site. Funny thing was it looked great even when I was drunk and couldn't make out what it was!
Thanks everyone :-)
I've been away (from the net) for a few days. This one's much more pleasing to me than the recent "Chromasia shots", but not a pleasing as some of the later ones :-)
I think the lack of post-processing is a welcome change here. While I think that the 3rd one in the series is far and away the best, I like the natural feel to this one.
