hehe, it's not. Not returning the 1D X. I've just been fighting the flu for the past week, really busy at work, etc... just didn't find the time to do a staged shot this time around.

I was going to post a diptych of my life, but I couldn't come up with the victory half.

Dave once again, I loved the photos... but my vote is going to spanner because I know he put a lot of time into this learning this process and shooting specifically for it.

You're a hard task master.

Are you saying that it's not a lot of work to have over 10,000 images in my library, filed so that I can find them quickly and ready for almost any challenge?

Hahahaha, no not saying that at all... just saying that I was in contact with Spanner throughout the process of shooting, refining, reshooting, reconceptualizing and so on so I am rewarding that effort for this contest with my vote.

I've been fighting with this.

The theme of Victory/Defeat was clearly conveyed with the surfer images provided by dcstep. Almost classically, in fact.

However, I really liked the vividness of the pepper in Spanner1751's "defeat" image. It was a bright and detailed, and overall a great image. Problem was, I felt that the birds in the "victory" image were a bit dark in comparison. My mind kept telling me what it was (Birds, then eaten pepper), but my eyes were drawn to the vivid image of the half-eaten pepper.

And that's what got to me - I could not associate a vivid, bright image of the pepper, however half-eaten it may have been, as defeat, in my mind, next to the slightly darker image of the birds.

I know I'm new to this part of the forum but I hope to contribute on a more regular basis and would like to submit for the next one. It's nice to see some participation in these contests, so hopefully I can do my part to increase the participation part, with my own.
