PoW! 39th Week

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

Love Boat
"Love Boat"
Nikon D80, 1/250, f/10, 10mm, ISO140

Editors Comment: This photo plays tricks on your eyes! One glance and you'll think it's a grounded UFO! Evidently, the positioning of the foreground subject in relation to the sun creates the effect of a glowing cockpit of a craft. There's a lesson. Once in while, it pays to pay attention to how you put things in the frame and a little imagination can make an oddly ordinary scene like this, a hit!

Editor's Comment: I know this is just an ordinary shot. but so what. The photo served its purpose. It made me hungry and craving for muffins! :D

Nikon D80. 1/100, f/6.3, 52mm, ISO100

Member's Comment: For me, what makes a silhouette photo effective is the fact that you don't see the usual elements like faces and expressions found in photos with human subjects but somehow still manages to intensely convey emotion. For this picture, it is hard to miss the bonding that these two boys are enjoying. So innocent… yet so meaningful.

I visited this site yesterday and saw the "UFO" photo but did not read the description. I just browsed through the site and admired the photos. (And the photographers perhaps?) Syempre medyo binasa ko na yng buong entry ngayon and realized hindi pala UFO yun? Kaya pala weird. Pero ang galing! Very nice. =D
