Entry 1 of 24
   
 
My Monet       ©2014 mbbin2
Panasonic DMC-FZ1000       1st place, 202 points
1/59s, f3.5, ISO 125, 67mm, Manual, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: converted from raw in cc2014, cropped and resized.
slow shutter; stabilization off; moving camera while pressing shutter. while processing ACR I moved the clarity slider all the way to the left.
      Extra Info: taken at the local arboretum while sitting on bench and ignoring puzzled looks from passer-by who I assumed were concerned about me moving the camera while shooting.

    Congrats on your #1, Mary!

(The forefathers of Panachallenge placed no limits on post processing.)

    Thanks to all of you!!! I am a little surprised. This was so close to SOOC. I kept thinking that some of the art filters would improve it, but was trying to stay true to the original intent. IT WOULD BE NICE TO HAVE A CHALLENGE WHERE EVERYTHING GOES AS FAR AS POST PROCESSING. (this is a selfish request since I have some SnapArt filters that do nice oils, etc that I can never use in competitions). Of course Jade would run away with such a challenge.

BTW this and my other entry were made with the new FZ1000. A photo like this could have been made with a point and shoot IMHO because of the technique.

    Glad to see you on top especially since your RAW post processing did not hurt you in the end result - which is as it should be.

    Your passer-by comments gave me a laugh. I suppose impressionist photography should be shot in solitude!

Very good result! In my favs.

    I could imagine to have this hanging on my wall as an Impressionistic painting.

    Good balance and a nicely impressionist look. I like the sunny, cheerful atmosphere.

    Definitely an impressionistic feel about this photo - the soft colours and the play of light and shadows are wonderful.

    being the first image in the voting section is always hard but you have a fine image here which can been seen

    Fabulous; love the "liquid" feel of this image and the subtle pastel overtones. Nicely done.

    Light and its reflection.
The appearance of quickly painted surfaces.
The appearance of short brushstrokes.
Separating colors and letting the eye's perception mix them.
Modern life as the subject matter.

It's the last one I'm having trouble with. I find the subject difficult to discern. Other than that, I like the technique and the result which is very well done and evocative of Monet.

    Very nice, but I'd say more Renoir than Monet. Like the light, the pastels, the composition....
