PoW! 5th Week

What was Nate thinking amidst the spotlight beaming?
Was he aware of the clicking of camera photo-taking?
Or at Morrigan was he looking while she was flirting
With the moon shining behind the red clouds looming?

'Tis also possible he was dreaming of a gadget porn
Not a thing that's small, A camera branded "reborn"!
To shoot us all, esp. the woman in "Maskara," untorn,
Who's got mole, 2 moles, shining; no one would scorn!

These are this week's
PoW!, in no order of preference:

Nate Farnsworth

"Nate Farnsworth"
by Joachim Guanzon, a.k.a. "джоачим"
Essential exif: Canon EOS 20D; 0.004 sec (1/250) ; f/2.8; ISO1600; 70-200mm @70 mm

Photog's Comment : The rockstar candid. he's my wife's boss. i saw him walking along those lights behind him, so I took a shot and got exactly what I had in mind.

Editor's Comment : What can I say about this pic? It was taken at the spur of the moment and the photographer has captured a very good one. Despite the entire scene being busy and all, the subject simply stands out from the rest of the crowd.

I also liked the way the exposure was well balanced despite the strong lighting directed towards the camera. I this was shot with fill-flash but still . . . look at the subject, look at the background. I don't see any hint of flash in there.

morrigan moon

"Morrigan Moon"
by Ronald Bayan, a.k.a. "captchaos"
essential exif: Nikon D50; 1.6 sec (8/5); f/8; @80 mm

Editor's Comments: For the "Miniature/Diorama" Category, I'd say this one stands out among those shared by Ronald this week. If you browse through the FPC pool, there are other noteworthy creations by him, e.g., the "Jaguar SS 100" and the "Drift Nissan Silvia" in cityscape backgrounds, the sexy "J-Dolls," and another "Morrigan Moon" flying for the moon, even Darth with a cool Ford (did you know that Sith Lords?)! I would have gone for his very imaginative "Obiwan" attack-on-buildings but we always love a sexy beauty, don't we? What more a voluptuous heroine!

Creativity and imagination clearly mark the work of Ronald. It is obvious that he has a deft hand at Photoshop and that's very inspiring! Where else to celebrate his ingenuity but here in FPC's PoW!?

Sith Sabers

"Sith Saber"
by Perry Chua, a.k.a. "powerpee"
Essential exif: Canon EOS 350D Digital; 0.05 sec (1/20); f/4.5; ISO400; @ 53 mm

Editor's Comment: This has "GADGET PORN" written all over it. Theres nothing like a photo that makes you feel go and grab the latest toys you could lay your hands on. If this photo made you feel like dirt for not having something to level or to surpass what is featured, then the owner have already won!


by John Willy Uy, a.k.a. "joeyuy"
Essential exif: Canon EOS 350D Digital, 1/50 secs, f/5.6, ISO800, @ 35 mm

Editor's Comment: A very unusual approach on portraiture, the lighting is perfect and the angle of the face is well composed. View it Large to appreciate it. Thumbs up!
