Title • child's play

Given that I’ve posted two similar images consecutively I thought that it was about time for a (radical) change – hence this image. It’s one of only a couple of shots I managed to take over the weekend and is of our youngest daughters’ tractor/car … well, it’s a plastic thing with wheels ;-)

What I like about this shot, and I’ve realised that this is one of the shots that’s probably a trademark of some of my recent work, is the hyper-saturated feel, … the almost too vivid to be real look. And as with a lot of my shots this is as much to do with Photoshop as it is the original image. I suppose what I was after here was a shot that captured the ‘brightness’ of this toy, and the vivid/stark differentiation between the colours. And I imagine, though have no idea as to whether this is true, that perhaps very young children see things this way too.
