Purpose

Ongoing CHALLENGE !!!

If your picture has been blogged here, it means that it has appealed to over 300 art jurors (currently 50 active) for a whole week or more. That is an achievement!!!

... and what does that mean ??? well according to This ... it means your picture is "... extremely resistant to people wanting to get rid of it", :)

If you see one single picture in this group that you think is not art, please say so (by commenting on it) and tell us why. If you are convincing - we will remove it. This group is to show case the most resistive pictures from the
B&W Art Photography - Is Your Art universal

I dunno, been in kind of a morbid mood the last couple of weeks, been crawling around in graveyards or borrowing skeletons and stuff like that for photoshoots.

"Borrowed" this idea from a buddy of mine, www.lydur.is.

This is Daði and the one walking away is Birkir. We set out in pretty shitty weather, and it was even worse when we got to the location, rained lightly and was VERY windy, so much that it was hard to stand up straight. Was going to underexpose the backround and light Daði up with a monolight but there was just no way cause of the wind so I only used ambient lighting. Dug a big hole but just so Daði could lie down and stick his head out of the sand and asked Birkir to walk away towards the shore (this is taken at the beach at Kleifarvatn).

Post processing was pretty minimal, first I did raw conversion, then tone mapped the shot slightly with photomatrix. After that I used curves for contrast, channel mixer for b/w conversion and hue/sat for making it sepia toned, added frame and sharpened after resizing.

For some reason the TIFF full res version of this had been saved without exif data so for those interested this is shot with a Canon 5D and a 85mm lens, iso 100, f2.0 and a 1/500 shutter.

I picked the title because the photo was shot looking up the trunk of a tree struck by lightning (using my new fisheye lens). But it also seems to have been a lightning bolt for Flickrites -- my most favorites and most comments ever, and inching toward most views. Thanks everyone.
