Cathy A. Rose level-deluxe April 12, 2010

Beautiful picture! I would love to know how you captured it? What setting's? I'm new to the world of photography and learning as I go. I would love to know if you just used your 'spot' focus or 'center' focus etc? #8529160

Bruce E. Van-Buskirk April 12, 2010

Very creative and innovative POV. I like the cascading chalk and the white chalk is an interesting leading line. #8530206

Merna L. Nobile April 14, 2010

Hi Ruth:
Your image, “Childs Play” could work as a wonderful abstract painting. I am sure that I am not the first one to point that out.
If you don’t mind telling me, how did you achieve the low angle for your shot? I like the choice of colors; it makes it work so well.
CONGRATULLATIONS on your Finalist Award! My best, Merna

Ruth Grimm April 14, 2010

Thank you all from WEYG for commenting so positively on my image! *beam*
Merna, I got my butt on the ground, put my camera on a mini tripod, set up the complimentary exposure and started snapping away.
Ta-Da! :) #8534719

Sherry Karr Adkins level-deluxe April 14, 2010

Very nice Ruth. I like your low angle and selective focus. It really draws your eye into the composition. Good job! #8535722

Karen E. Michaels level-deluxe April 23, 2010

I do love the tilt Ruth. A real eye-catcher! #8564509
