About the Image(s)

2019 PSA Annual convention was held in Spokane WA. This year’s meeting in September at Colorado Springs has been cancelled. In
Spokane there was a lot to photograph. A waterfall and rapids in middle of the city. Many beautiful parks. In one of these parks there were
metal statues of robots running.

I started with a foggy image taken on the street outside my house Removed the car and increased the fog. Sized and placed some of the robots
on the street. Used the Blur filter to set the robots into the fog. Left the first robot sharp

I really like this image. The black and white works well, particularly with the fog. You've really worked with perspective here in a very satisfying way.
The softness of the fog is a nice contrast to the angularity of the robots.

I wouldn't change a thing, Aavo. Well done!   Posted: 05/08/2020 14:51:31

Aavo, This is a compelling image on many levels. I like the tonal range and fog. The sharpness and position of the in focus runner on the right is perfection. I have two minor suggestions. The cropping of the left side feels tight for my taste, but this is a minor issue. I find the focus of the other runners a bit distracting. I might suggest bringing one or two more of the runners close to the lead runner a little more in focus to create a more natural balance, otherwise the image is very strong and enjoyable to view.   Posted: 05/10/2020 13:01:28

Aavo, Such an interesting concept and a good use of inanimate objects. The placement is very interesting.

I wonder about the "fringing" on the trees. Was that intentional? If so, great, it adds to the unreality of the scene.

I agree with Peggy about the black and white working well in the fog. I also agree with Brad about the tonal range. At a time when computers and robots are becoming more human, this composite may be look into the future.   Posted: 05/13/2020 13:21:23
