  #103 It's Flying
Entry 10 of 15
   
 
Flying Saucer       ©2011 Terraliptar
Panasonic HDC-SD600       10th place, 35 points
1/25s, f1.5, ?, 35mm, Normal Program, Center Weighted Average, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Photographed the Frisbee indoors, cut out the background, colorized it to recreate the glow-in-the-dark effect and duplicated the layer in order to create a motion blur. Photographed the sky, adjusted the levels and placed it behind the Frisbee. Resized and sharpened.       Extra Info: My friend bought me this Moonlighter Frisbee on a school trip to New York around 30 years ago and it one of my oldest and dearest possessions.

    On the whole I like this image. I think it would work better if the frisbee wasn't so large.

    this is a out of the box result. glad the white cloud was bottom right.
the frisbee which started life as a aluminium pie plate and still a favorite in our local park.

    Somehow it does not work for me. The elements seem to be independent without a relationship. I know frisbees would fly around with that sort of background but it just doesn't feel right. Wish I could explain it better.

    O.k. I am going to bet I am not the only one to say the cloud (single alone) looks like it is competing with the disk for attention.

A trail of little puff clouds would look like some cute 50's retro space exhaust effect, maybe, but one doesn't work for me. The frisbee is cool and your rendering spacey but that glow makes it a little campy. Hence, my choice for the little puff clouds to give it that 50's sci-fi "fake" space effect.

Still, a nicely rendered and wonderfully original image.
