  #46 From the Movies
Entry 2 of 23
Honey, I've shrunk the kids!       ©2008 dodrizzt
Panasonic DMC-FZ50       2nd place, 168 points
1/200s, f4.5, ISO 100, 166mm, Normal Program, Spot, no flash
Post-Processing: Made from 3 pics blended, one for the kids, one for the grass and one for the bug, grass made with raynox 150, bug with raynox 250 (it was very little!!). Blended in CS3 with multiple layers, added little movement blur to the kids, added extra grass... laaaarge but very funny process!!!       Extra Info: Still a newbie with them but Raynox are great for fun!! I Thought this maybe a nice and funny try for the theme...
P.D. sorry I couldn't find a nice ant staying quiet for a pic, that was my first idea and would have been greater according to the film :-)

    Hi Dodrizzt, I'm responding to your message here to make sure you see it. Thank you for your very kind words about my Open entry. I found the challenge to be the most difficult to date (even though it was a good idea for a theme!) and almost didn't enter. And then I got it wrong because I'd thought we weren't allowed to name the movie. I thought the point of the challenge was that the movie should be recognised from the photo.

I had no hopes of getting a TT place with either shot, but I also didn't think I would come last with my Main entry!

I hadn't realised I was your #1 voter! It just goes to show how much I like your pics!

Best wishes,

    wow!! second!!! :-) :-) :-) thanks thanks thanks a lot for all of your comments and voting, I hoped just entering TT but finishing second is gorgeous :-D
Glad you liked my pic, I had a lot of fun planning & PP the image, certainly worth the efforts :-) Thanks again to all of you for so mmany nice comments.
The kids are my nephew & niece, they are also very happy seeing 'they' finished 2nd place LOL (by the way, the most difficult part of the pic was having them show something like an 'scared' expression... instead of the tons of laughs they had in the test pics LOL)

Aprilesole: special thanks for that nice comment when I was a little worried, and you are totally right, all of you are winners just for entering a tough challenge :-)

Rafinmelb: also special thanks for that Euro footbal cup comment, LOL, hope this year we can do something great :-) Vamos Espaņa!!! hahahaha
