Frisbee in the Fog

Posted by

Kids playing during the holidays. I cropped it slightly and added a stroke (which you probably can't see), but did no other editing (didn't want to mess with the effect of the fog). Happy Silly Tuesday.

MARIANA from Waterloo, Canada

Sure, it is one of your favorites and one I like / love it very much for being so different than many others ... People are taking foggy shots of landscapes, but I really never seen anything like this image - frisbee in a fog :)) Once again - fantastic !

5 Jan 2010 5:46am

@MARIANA: Other foggy shots will follow in the next few days, but they almost seem pedestrian. Without the comparison with this one, they would seem better.

Paco Díaz from Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Fantastic one!! Very good shot and a fabulous funny idea to play frisbee in this fog... and to shot it :)

I think it says "spontaneity" and "exuberance." Perhaps that is what makes it so special to you.

a kind of dance in the light veil of mists, I like this image that refers to the summer in the winter.

Nice image - I think it might be better if you cropped the 2 guys on the right. They seem to diminsh the power of the action

5 Jan 2010 2:49pm

don from spokane, United States

The foggy look tend to wipe out the facial details making this action shot even more effective with it concentrate on form and shapes. Wonderful capture of the peak action.

When you got to play.. you GOT to play. They probably would have if there was snow ;) Nice.

5 Jan 2010 11:54pm

@Self-Indulgence: Absolutely. The girl was all over the field!!

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Beautiful action shot as you captured people in mid-air going for the frisbee. The sunlight does a great job of enhancing the fog, creating a "toward the light" effect where it seems many of these people are emerging from.

6 Jan 2010 12:23am

Joan Felix from Jakarta, Indonesia

Love the situation , love the effect...Excellent l !!!

Absolutely perfect capture, such softness all round!

6 Jan 2010 9:40pm

jim from sebastopol, United States

this is a very nice action shot! what do you mean when you say that you "added a stroke" ? i don't understand the term and didn't see any reference to it in the prior comments.

7 Jan 2010 6:11am

@jim: In Photoshop, you can put a stroke around anything. I use it to add a solid border (you can determine the number of pixels wide it is) around the photograph. Sometimes I put a black stroke and sometimes I put a white stroke. With my background, it is easy to see white strokes, but unless they are wide, it is difficult to see black strokes. The way I use it, it's like a narrow frame.

jim from sebastopol, United States

now i understand, i'm familiar with a stroke in lettering, but using the term in reference to a photo threw me! thanks for the explanation !

7 Jan 2010 4:15pm

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

Missed this beauty on my 'terrible tuesday" !! very cool shot....but have to ask, what's a "stroke" that you added????

7 Jan 2010 8:00pm

@Susan: Thanks. On stroke, read my response to Jim.

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

a that i know what it is, I can see that how did ya do that in photoshop???

7 Jan 2010 11:53pm

@Susan: First of all, I flatten everything. Then I do Command J to duplicate the background layer. At the bottom of your Layer Palette, click on "fx" which is "Add a Layer Style". At the bottom of the menu, click on Stroke. Inside of the Stroke dialog box, change Position to "Inside." If you don't want Black as the color of your stroke, click on Color and make a color selection. Move the Size slider to the right until you get the size stroke that you want. You're done.

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

thanks for the info Jack....will check it out !!!
