  #171 Emotional Still Life
Entry 13 of 26
Sven       ©2016 rd52
Canon EOS 7D       13th place, 53 points
1/25s, f6.3, ISO 1250, 80mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
Post-Processing: Converted from raw to a tiff. In ps cropped,created different layers to selectively de-noise and sharpen different areas. Cloned out some stray hairs on his face. Darkened the BG a taste. Sized and smart sharpened for the challenge.       Extra Info: Sven was given to us years ago by our slightly eccentric 'aunt'. I've always thought he was kind of cool, the spouse, not so much.

    Thanks for all the comments.

I think, with looking at the label on the bottom naming 'him' Sven, he was a he, not a she. I think he might be a Norse pixie?

We don't hide him, if you come by you can see him.

    Nicely composed image of a puzzling subject. What do you suppose Sven is?

    One creepy looking fella, well setup.

    Suits to the topic. Well composed. In my favorites.

    I'm not sure if the apples and tomatoes add to this image, but then again I'm not sure Sven does too 😜😜

    She is the apple of his eye? This is so very odd - I really like it. In my favourites.

    Nice lighting and nice idea, not sure about the red fruit / tomatoes or whatever it is at the bottom. It does add red to image, which is good, however it does make me wonder what it adds to image other than red... As for emotion, the image does creep me out a bit, but I think darker and deeper shadows would have added well to the effect. All in all a good effort though. Well done.

    looks like the guardian of the fruits. he may put the evil eye on you if you take something. composed and processed well. good for this challenge.

    I think Sven is weird enough to evoke an emotional response. Great detail and colour

    oh yes and it comes up from the basement when the relative is due.

i was given an African face mask, the previous owner is far away across the pond
it is now used a seagull scarer. other birds just sit on it

    I don't get the relation between a troll figurine, an apple, and small tomatoes(?). The frame is very crowded.
