I'm Not the Only One Who Takes Pictures

Though I did take this one. Doesn't it look like it could be the magical entrance to a fantasy world. The Land of Enchanted Meadow for example. :-)

Like I said, I'm not the only one who takes photos. Sometimes Candace chimes in with a picture or two.

Conrad prefers to focus on the smaller things of life, namely the microscopic.

The World of Dust Bunnies

Yeah... she does have a little to learn about photography yet. :-)

But then, don't we all?

Awesome photo of "The Land of Enchanted Meadow", Carmen!

Thanks, you two.
Josiah, I'm not sure how this photo would stand up to being printed in 5x7 size, much as I wish it would. :-)

Carmen, you have now caused an envy problem in me. I wanted so badly to have a picture like the top one but for some reason just didn't manage this winter. I envy you. :D

In all seriousness, the picture is really quite beautiful. I like how you focused on the atmosphere effect with the sun coming through the snow, I assume this is at sunrise? My main critique would be that the tree trunks are too far into the image. Turning the camera a little bit more to the right to pout the trunks right at the edge of the frame would have improved this picture.

If you print this at full-rez I think a 5x7 would actually come out quite nicely since your camera has so many megapixels to compress into the print.

I really like your shot Candace, the DOF is really quite beautiful with the lighting being anything but bland. I think shifting the composition to the right would also improve this image as the subject is a little bit to close to the center for a truly dynamic image.

Love the enchanting photo!

Josiah. You shouldn't envy me, not with all those beautiful photos on your photo a day blog. Why you even have Photoshop... and some awesome lenses... not to mention a flash unit... WHOOPS, I'm starting to sound envious myself. ;-)

Yes, it is at sunrise. Also, I agree with your critique, though I have to wonder: "Would you have crawled through the electric fence to get the right angle?" :-)

I guess the only way to find out is to print it.

Sylvia, I'm glad you like it.
