  #218 The Rule of 3 (NOT the Rule of Thirds)
Entry 4 of 19
Lovers and rejected suitor       ©2019 kerszkavet
Panasonic DMC-G80       4th place, 137 points
1/20s, f6.3, ISO 200, 60mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
Post-Processing: brightened, adjusted levels, saturation, sharpened.       Extra Info: Using three elements encourages the imagination to invent a story

I like to think they're swans in disguise... but have no idea what the avian equivalent of anthropomorphism is...

I combined two photos from the same shoot in order to enhance depth of field

    Congrats, great idea well executed.

    Well done! I love the humour.

    thanks everyone for their comments and votes. I'll certainly consider the issues such as alignment, lighting angle.

RobertLavker - I tried using in-camera focus stacking but for some reason it was coming out really dark... still getting to grips with my g80

    Nice, uncluttered composition. I love the pop of red against the white. Combining two shots is a good way to get the depth of field the way you want it. (Thanks for the tip.)

    The suitor looks a bit tense while the happy couple are relaxed. The stalks add poignant symbolism. Bravo.

    I was going to vote for this until I saw you had combined two photo, which I don’t like.

    These swans are certainly well disguised! I like the humour. Well lit and arranged.

    Good work. Well composed. Funny picture name. In my favorites.

    Great subject and colors. My only nit is that the 3 peppers are little too horizontally aligned.

    At first viewing this image pops... the white background makes that happen but also (for me) makes it look a bit sterile. like this... high in my favorites.

    Interesting still life abstract. I think the asymmetry makes this image. I am curious why you did not use focus stacking to achieve the same depth of field? Nonetheless, a great entry for this challenge.

    Aviopomorphism? A very direct interpretation of the theme. The red is lovely. The composition is good. The lighting is so even that the image seems to have little depth and is a bit characterless.
