    This is so cool!!! Did you purposely place the red bottle with the watermelon because it looks great. It looks as if the left side is almost greyscale and the right is a blur of colour and life. Fantastic capture - tons of originality, I hope to see it in the winners circle in a months time.

Have you desaturated the ceiling?. Everything fits in this picture (colors, the way it's composed, the movement... awesome...)

Thanks Marta, Sharon, Andre and Susana!

Andre,
I did not de-saturate the ceiling. I think the gray color is due to the dimly lit portion of the ceiling above the fluorescent lights. The only thing I did in PS was a slight rotation and crop so the left side of the shopping cart aligned better with the edge of the image. Oh yea I almost forgot I did clone out the word ‘Viva’ on the top of the milk bottle. If anyone from ‘Viva’ wants to buy the shot I can put it back in!

Jim Mires

member since: 3/25/2003
 

Thanks Thomasa! I don’t know exactly how many shot I took to get this one but it was most likely about 50 or so. I held the camera and rested my hands on the shopping cart as my wife pushed it along and I would hold down the shutter button every time she smiled and looked up. Normally I would try a super clamp for this type of thing but I did not have mine with me. We went down the juice isle about three or four times, we also tried this in the meat department but the color there wasn’t as good.

wow brings back some exciting memories of when I was a kid (not too long ago actually) riding on the front of the cart was the most fun.

Now on the picture. Are the colors that vibrant when read by a canon chip or was there any saturation enhancement?
