Pen and Ink       ©2010 Lo
Panasonic DMC-ZS3       3rd place, 86 points

Post-Processing: Cropped slightly, adjusted levels to bring out detail in portrait, cloned out minor distractions, resized for entry, USM       Extra Info: Pen and Ink drawing requires unbelievable patience and skill. One false stroke or ink blot and the entire drawing can be ruined. No PP here - you have to start again from the beginning.

    Thanks for your kind comments Dodrizzt - I wish I spoke Spanish as well as you speak English. My husband is the artist, and he was ever so patient while I took shots from several angles, including a few from up a ladder.

Thanks to everyone who commented or voted - I'm really pleased to have finished so well.

    Leaving apart the (astonishing!) pen and ink portrait, the image itself is nicely composed and beautifully (low) lighted, adding a sense of "home warmness" (sorry for my poor English word inventions :-) The high angle also adds a nice touch of "self point of view"...
All in all, a nice image for the challenge and high in my TT, well done!! :-)

    Thanks Boar - I'm glad bad memories of the subject didn't put you off too much. I have to agree - I'm not very good at things that need this much precision.

    ...When I was at school I really hated this kind of technique!
...I was used to pay a friend to obtain his help!
...Interesting photo and I like the composition!

    Thanks Jade - I did heighten the contrast on the drawing as I wanted to show how shadows are achieved using pen and ink. The lightness to the left of the drawing is a reflection off the old varnish of the desk - I should have darkened it a bit.

    Nice sharp detailing though a little over contrast for my taste. Well composed and with a high level of interest.
