Darkroon Topic Challenge, #57, HALF, Aug - Sept. 7, 2018

WC Darkroom Topic Challenge (C&C’s encouraged but not required)

Topic : HALF

You are probably scratching your head trying to figure out just what does HALF mean. Simply put, it means half of anything. You could photograph something cut in half, like a candy bar, orange, Peter's recent seed cases, or photograph something like a half a carton of eggs, half of a glass of beer, or a composition with only half of the subject as the subject (huh?....see my first entry),



This Challenge will end September 8, 2018

Guidelines:
1) All photos submitted must be yours.
2) All entries are to be posted directly by each member into this thread in the DARKROOM.
3) You may post more than one image, however, please submit only one photo per post.
4) We hope that his activity inspires you to shoot new images and not just pull from your archives. However, images from your archives WILL be allowed as long as your image has NOT been previously posted on Wet Canvas.
5) You may use software to manipulate or enhance your images.
6) Since this activity is running in the Darkroom Forum, Comments and Critiques are allowed and encouraged but not mandatory. Anyone, regardless of experience, can offer his/her reaction to a photo, because [b]most of those posting in the Darkroom would appreciate your C&C. [b]
7) Please keep comments and critiques constructive.
8) Every other Sunday, a new topic challenge will begin.

Sometimes I think an image like this creates tension and interest, more than if the subject was totally intact or whole.

Mary, once again when I came up with this challenge, I thought of you first. You see, from across the seas I can already hear the gears turning in your head and am looking forward to what you come up with.

I have found that the use of "HALF" occurs a lot in food photography and feel that for some reason, one that I do not know, works really well. I think in some cases the "half" image works better than a complete shot and works best for photographs that appear in culinary publication.

Re: Darkroon Topic Challenge, #57, HALF, Aug - Sept. 7, 2018

Here goes a different half attempt. We were bike riding in a resort and came upon this swan on a deck of a home across from a pond. A woman walked by and told us the someone had shot its' better half (mate). The swan has since become attached to it's reflection on the sliding glass door and there it remains for a good portion of the day. Kind of sad.

Aw, Steve, that is such a sad story.

Yes, it is a good take on the "HALF" theme. You already got bonus points for this one.

My heart goes out for that poor bird who thinks its life long mate is inside that house.

Thank you Mary. I think the HALF creates extra tension and interest.

Lots of times you don't need the whole flower to make for an interesting photo, especially when the flower is of the symmetrical type like yours. This works, Dave.
