I got one I had hopes for so I'm happy for this month, but there were a few others I was sure about and they didn't make the cut. O well! Jeff I know you had many others I would have picked over this one, but it's still a great shot with a unique POV. :~)

Well if it was not for the fact that the finalists are all so good I might subscirbe to the theory that they are using darts for he selection process.

Very nice shots Jeff and Aimee.

Magnolia
Magnolia
. . . one of my absolute favourite florals . . our home has magnolia art everywhere. It wasn't until recently that I actually saw a real live one.

Particularly like the graceful swag of the leaves supporting the blossom and purposely did not "correct" the blemishes in the blossom . . . nothing is perfection in real life, and that is how it was . . . trying to remain true to reality.

  You are right, Aimee does have at least one to add to the list.

You should have come to Vegas, we did a bit of this there :o)

Both of the images are long exposures, the building is just under 10 minutes, the spiral is about 3 minutes. The light source on the building image is several Roman Candle Fireworks. I was actually firing the candles from inside the building, trying to hit various holes in the walls and ceiling. About a third of the shots missed and bounced around inside the building :o) By the way, Dale was with me for the building shot.

The Spiral image was created using some LED Christmas lights taped to an old bicycle wheel which was then rotated around the inside of the pipe while my buddy walked backwards.

Really, this kind of stuff is pretty simple to do. I will warn you, it is HIGHLY addicting. If you go to my blog (jeffejensen.blogspot.com) and find the Light Painting tag in the list of labels, it will take you to several blog posts with various images that are similar to these.

While poking around in St. Augustine, Florida I came across this wonderful Presbyterian church erected in 1899. The gardens had many pathways and I just fell in love with this one. It was starting to rain and the thunder was clapping, so didn't get nearly as many photos as I would have liked to.

I was thrilled to photograph these two Monarch Butterflies, together. But, the b/g behind the upper butterfly was less than desirable. I applied three textures to disguise the problem. Each texture with different blending modes, fills and opacities. Textures from ShadowHouse

I'm back and hoping that this works this time. I had nearly forgotten about these. The pictures from all of you are amazing and Tony, I, too, have received feedback from the judges on the wolf.

  That made me laugh Jeff, but not really sure what prompted your and Rita's comments cuz I didn't think I was being hard on myself...let's see if adding some simple punctuation will change the feel of my posts...

  Tony, my comment was based purely on what popped into my head after reading the comments on your image.

Congrats to both of you on the comments from the judges. Pretty cool!

  These are just great. Congratulations everyone! And another first place winner from Carla way to go. And a judges comment for Tony, doggone it.

I didn't put anything in in December, and only couple in January. So I hope to get back in the swing of things soon with my usual 10 to 15 per month.

Congratulations, Jeff. I did see a couple more of us as I browsed through quickly. Goodness it is hard to see the Finalists with all the extra ads interpersed within the photos.

Anyhow, I managed two as well.

Phellos before I have this one enlarged and printed I wanted to know if you think it would benefit from some content aware cloning of the out of focus bubbles in the foreground. The problem is I'm not sure I could get all of them so then the ones that are there would become more of a distraction.

Whooohooo Jeff....so happy for you because it is indeed an amazing image and so deserving of the honor!!!

I resubed one of my old water and oil shots that only got an EP and a POTD. I thought it was finalist worthy so gave it a shot and got 2nd place in Details and Macro. :~)
