Face Cards in a Tudor Flush       ©2010 Jade O.
Panasonic DMC-FZ30       13th place, 30 points
1/30s, f2.8, ISO 200, 35mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Resized two portraits, overlay, trim to fit.       Extra Info: A poker hand with five cards of the same suit is generally called a flush. A king high flush has the king as its highest card, a king-queen flush has a king and queen as the top two cards. But I prefer the more colourful term, Tudor flush, named after the Kings and Queens of Tudor England. The odds of being dealt a Tudor flush are 2,876 in 2,528,960 or about 0.1 % (one tenth of one percent).

    Hi Jade, sorry you didn't finished TT, I still like the pic a lot. And your photographer eyes work perfectly well - and serve greatly to your superb creativity!! :-)
(the football match is easy to get :-D you just need to fly to Spain someday :-)

    Even before the challenge ended I would have known this was yours Jade. You like pp faces in it seems. Interesting take on the theme.

    I'm tempted to say that If I knew which bits were which I wouldn't have had to spend so much time in Soho - there - I have given way to temptation once again.

    Billy, thanks but not enough for a top ten here unfortunately. What I need is a good football match...and a better photographer's eye!

    I had a feeling this was you, the composition was so careful. Thanks for the added info - all these bits help me to take better photos - I would not have thought of using the monitor as a backlight.

    Nice take on theme (I love playing cards too :-) with the extra creativity touch of adding the faces to the king and queen - nice idea that adds lot of flavour to a nice pic. TT for sure, well done!!

    Mepo. Thanks. I'm not sure that the facts are much help but I'm pleased as always to have your comments.

    Good composition and overlay; great colour and detail. Also I just learned some more facts about cards. tt

    Lo, I enjoy a little poker now and then. :-0
The hand is held up against a piece of white paper curved against the computer monitor and desk. Good guess BTW! Thanks for taking the time to comment.

    Great choice for a leisure time activity, and you've taken it out of the mundane by adding the two portraits. It's well taken and well thought out (Jade?)
