A cold and very rainy day in Melbourne today.
I didn’t mind it because I took some interesting reflection shots and I also enjoyed the diverse display of umbrellas.
Mind you, being a candid photographer and not always aware of my surroundings I nearly got my eye poked out a few times!

Having a blast.

    Very cool Maree, love the SC, perfect!

  • Thanks Melissa. The pink umbrella was so lovely… too lovely to turn to B/W. The lady had a pink jacket on and, well, the SC just seemed the right thing to do with this pic. Thank you, I’m glad you like it :)

    Love, love, LOVE this!! I knew it was yours as soon as I saw it in the image feed Ree. Love the SC, and so many interesting shapes too. Totally cool :))

  • Thanks Kris. I stop myself sometimes from doing things I want… like the occasional selective colouring so it will fit in certain groups… like B/W ones… but that’s just stupid and self-defeating. I have made a decision not to do that any more and just do whatever I think will suit the pic the most. :)

    Maree, I think this would make a great candid. Regarding the Candid Photography group, we think the colour treatment disqualifies it. Please see our group rules.

  • OK, thanks Chris. It looks good in B/W but it looks so much better like this. :)
    Rules are rules and I respect them. Thank for sending me a message.

    How can it be said that this would make a great candid without the selective colour??!! It is a great candid. The SC has nothing to do with it.

  • Well that’s what I think too. I don’t mind though when a work gets rejected for breaking an existing rule. We agree to rules when we join a group, whether we think the rules make sense or not. So in the case above, I don’t mind. I just hate getting rejected for stupid subjective inconsistent moderation :))
