"Step on a crack..."       ©2019 Lo
Panasonic DMC-FZ200       5th place, 95 points
1/250s, f3.5, ISO 200, 40mm, Aperture Priority, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: From RAW in photoshop, increased White Balance, sharpness, luminance. Cropped, cloned out piece of stone, Enhanced colour saturation
In Topaz 5, used HDR medium grunge, and Photo Pop to bring out detail
      Extra Info: "Step on a crack, you break your mother's back" - a children's skipping song from centuries ago. There are actually people nowadays who cannot step on a crack, and who avoid them at all costs. The very idea makes them itchy.

    In my favs. People are afraid of different things. In my favorites.

    Kerskavet, The legs are awkward because I was trying to emphasize avoiding the crack.

    I supposed it is because you can trip and fall stepping on a crack?? Great photo.

    Good example of strange superstition. The color toning adds nice pop to the image and emphasizes the crack.

    I like the idea of this, especially the red tone and texture, but the legs look a little awkwardly posed.

    I remember avoiding cracks in the sidewalk when I was going to primary school- when you think of it, it was a great test of agility and a good challenge.

    What a great idea. I love the perspective and the colorful pavement. High in my favs.

    I think we have all observed that ritual at some stage of our lives but that fact doesn't make the behaviour any less strange. My mother actually did have a broken back but since it was before I was on the scene I can not be held responsible if I did actually break the taboo. Back in the days when I was avoiding stepping on cracks I probably would have found orange shoelaces pretty strange. In my top few.
