  Mini#34 Remembering AMBaker
Entry 6 of 25
   
 
persevering       ©2016 dk
Apple iphone 6s       6th place, 126 points
1/459s, f2.2, ISO 25, 29mm, Normal Program, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: did more than I usually do in PP:
-crop, convert to BW then selectively color the plant and the water (to better capture the blue sky's reflection)
-selective color did not really change the photo too much as the sidewalk was largely a shade of gray already, some of the bluish tint to the concrete was removed
-enhance contrast
-sharpen a bit
      Extra Info: So many lovely shots submitted by AB! I am especially interested in the often unusual subject matter he chose and his choice to explore monochrome. I tried to do the same here; this partially desaturated (the surrounding sidewalk looking more gray as a result) shot has as its simple subject a small weed, surrounded by a little water, growing (but "working" to survive) from a small crack in the sidewalk. It reminded me of patience and endurance, skills I must cultivate when faced with adversity. It seems to me that AMBaker exhibited these as evidenced by his continuation as a member of our Panachallenge community. I will miss his contributions.

    My 2nd place and I agree with Bernie about overlooking great photos. Good eye and an excellent tribute.

    Bravo dk, I like what you did with the processing, and of course, the result. It shows how we can often overlook a simple photographic subject we pass everyday.

    What a lovely tribute, both photographic and written. I find this photo really appealing in its simplicity.

    The small details we don't see which surrounds us everyday, which you managed to capture and process well here. Well done!

    Great image - very "zen-like". A perfect tribute to AMBAker. Well done.

    Like the subtle color shifts - gray, black, blue - with the striking yellow contrast.

    Simple but beautiful. Love the B&W contrast with splash of colors. Really nice.
