|03:17 pm - Eighteen favorite photos - sun dawns (20-23)|
Work in progress. I need to narrow these down 18 favorites.
Comments and suggestions always welcome and appreciated.
leaving worries at home
in my knew knapsack
the brand new dawn
I sleep till noon without
the birthday party
makes me feel more lonely
I swat a bug
while praying for its soul
rain falls on rain
I know, the last ku may need a different image, perhaps something rainy.
It just occurred to me I do not have any rainy photos, definitely nothing good.
These are wonderful. I felt the intensity of the sun while looking at some of these. Sequences 2 and 3 are my favorites.
I know everyone's a critic, but I have some misgivings about the log in the third picture in sequence 3. It's not that it's out of place for the area, it just seems like it draws focus away from the theme of sun-clouds-water-earth. As a stand alone photo, though, it is exceptionally good.
Sharp eye about this log! And you are right.
And a funny story behind this series. When I took these shots and gave them the first look I thought there are crap. I found 4 that were salvageable and started to reframe and hone them. And here we are -- some of my favorite dawn pics.
btw, I did not realize I have so much stuff. Originally I though I will have difficulties finding 12 not to mention 18. Now it seems like I may have about twice as many as I need.
I love the line rain falls on rain (regardless of whether the ku can go with a non-rainy scene).
I like the sun embroidering the edges of the clouds in the photos where it's mainly hidden, and I love the silver-gray color of the water and shore in those.
