My Town-Friday Shoot Out


This is the worst picture I have taken in a while...in my opinion; however, it is all that I could do today. Today was one of those days where nothing worked photographically. My Friday Group's assignment was to take signs that are "funny" or "odd", etc. Well I drove past a cemetery, which is in my city, and noticed that it is ironically located on a dead end street.
The cemetery stones are too far away from the sign to make the picture complete so I shot through my windshield and used the blue sky and the cross hanging from my rear view mirror to represent the heavenly quality of a cemetery. I then used the two images and combined them. I had also used cemetery stones; however, the multiple image just didn't work. I apologize for the poor quality photo today but it wasn't because of a lack of effort.

I like your photo. but I think you may be thinking of next weeks assignment which is interesting and amusing signs. this week is relaxation. but I think this pic could be used for both!

No apology needed...most of my photos this summer have just been to get through and didn't have any artistic merit. However, I do like your representation of the cementary sign and the way you combined photos. Definitely some symbolism and irony going on there, so I do like this photo!

I really like this image, too...and appreciate all the effort you put into it! You didn't simply take a snapshot and post it (as I have done many times...just to get through the day); rather, you put a considerable amount of thought and energy to create an artistic rendition. Way to go!!! :-)

Nothing wrong with the image. Getting mixed up is normal.. at least for me :-D

I actually like the photo. It is creative. Never think one photo is your worst. There will be another around the corner. I know. I have taken my share, mostly when I have to shoot fast and the light keeps changing. I shoot on manual at all times. It can be a curse, but I find that auto can give me more headaches than manual shooting.

There are times when each of us thinks that a particular image is the worst ever. Amazingly, some of the time, it turns out to be someone's favorite. I really like this image especially considering you indicated you were struggling photographically.

I like the composite and all the components in it.
