Hold Still Now...

I decided to do a challenge which I had missed - which I'm embarrassed to admit there were quite a few.


Balance.

It took me more time to set up this simple shot than any other challenge so far. Getting those rocks to stay, in the wind, not an easy feat. I have my other top two posted on my blog if you'd like to see what else I liked from the "session".

I also had so much fun at the E.ID Meetup! I was great seeing people I've known and meeting new friends! I only wish we could have done a proper session with baby Grace.

I love how sharp the lines are against the blurred out background. Great focus, great setup (off to the side). I also love how different each rock is from the others.

I'm super glad you put so much effort into getting this shot. I would have said, the heck with it (I'm not very patient ;)). This picture is AMAZING. I love the composition of it. WEll DONE!
