  #213 It's About Time
Entry 6 of 14
   
 
Playtime       ©2019 SteveBee
Panasonic DC-G9       6th place, 93 points
1/1250s, f5.6, ISO 200, 28mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Developed from raw in Lightroom and adjusted to taste.       Extra Info: I started out trying to get a dramatic shot of this sundial. After awhile I became more fascinated with watching kids interact with it all kinds of ways. In true boyhood fashion these lads tried wanted to climb it. They took turns trying to boost each other up the huge style or gnomon that casts the shadow on the dial.

    Lovely, lively image. The colours are great and I love how the energy of the boys is all going in the same direction as that of the sundial gnomon (new word for me, thanks). My number 2 pick.

    I suggest cloning out the two adults in the background and a tighter crop on the kids who are the star attraction. I'm surprised this has not been fenced off and packed with cotton wool ;-) Good action shot of kids doing what kids do. In my favs.

    This is such a great choice for the theme. I wish you had cropped to just behind the boys and made them more of a focal point. Their determination is infectious.

    Great composition and you caught the children just at the right moment. Beautiful timepiece, too. I find the color saturation a bit too strong and unnatural.

    I like this picture very much. Suits to the topic. Well composed, good composition and sharpness, beautiful colors. My first choice.

    I like your choice of including the children. The town street in the background adds to the suburban feel of the scene.

    Great scene - well-composed, though a bit over-saturated, IMO. Might prefer a time of day when the shadow is more oblique to the gnomon. (Thanks for reminding me what the name for that is!)

    A really engaging picture... lucky to have the kids in solid bright colours, and the time is just visible... Good choice of subject
On my monitor the colours (especially the sky) appear over-saturated

Would a shallower depth of field (via aperture or post processing) have been possible to isolate the attention more from the busy background?

    This is a great sundial that must offer a myriad of photographic possibilities. I like the children playing as it adds a human touch.
