Eggs in turmoil!! by Angela Bonner, QPSA

August 2019 - Eggs in turmoil!!

About the Image(s)

Have a camera club competition coming up beginning September so thought I would make a fun one!!
My own chickens eggs and my hand and used remote control to activate the shutter with other hand. Drew the faces on in Photoshop. The background was also put in via PS.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

How delightful! You did a great job with the faces - I can't draw to save my life! I especially enjoyed the worried face you put on the egg in your hand. Great story and I'm sure your club will be laughing big time when this hits the screen! d:¬{D   Posted: 08/02/2019 16:11:31

Ok,now Good Morning. What I like. The creativity is outstanding, as well as the execution of photoshop. I liked reading the explanation, as that was helpful. I really like the broken egg, its transparency, and its placement, as it brings the viewer into the across the picture. Colors are good and spot on. I like the towel folds and shadows. Very interesting facial expressions. I like your hand and the anticipation of the fear expression on the egg in hand.
What you might consider is transforming the background to make it straight, or flat, as it is angled from left to right taking me out of the picture rather than hold me in the picture. That is my strongest suggestion. A really tough cut on the hand, but I think you handled it well. Perhaps a little dark on the right bottom of the towel, but not sure you can do anything with that, as it does keep the viewer in the main part of the pic by keeping it dark, but you might lighten it up for that part that is in the pic and not part of the edge fold of the towel. Towel may be a little bright right under the two bottom eggs, as my eye goes there, so you might want to see if you can lower hightlights there, and then pic a central egg that you want to be the highlight and lighten that egg. But very subtle, and just something else I see being very picky. Translucence of the broken egg and yoke are the highlights to me, as it is wonderfully handled. A creativity I am not capable of, so kudos to you!   Posted: 08/11/2019 06:02:07

Thanks, Randy. I see what you mean about the background which I have "put in" and hopefully I can sort that. As usual your comments are very constructive and make me look again at my images with a different eye!! Learning a lot from you.   Posted: 08/11/2019 12:46:31

Angela, I love your creativeness and humor. I'm also jealous of your PS talents and abilities. I wish I lived in the UK so I could take PS lessons from you.

My eye keeps getting pulled to the wall area below your hand. Possibly darken the wall a bit (maybe even on both sides of your hand).   Posted: 08/12/2019 15:26:22

Angela, you are so creative and talented. I love all the expressions you have created. I was initially thinking you had hand drawn them with a sharpie. Very excellent photoshop work.   Posted: 08/18/2019 07:32:28
