She didn’t hold onto the Bar and fell. She had to do it over again, she was successful with her next attempt.
PS There are 3 more images on page 1

Tut tut Wallace for entering 5 images, but I’ll let you off because they’re all interesting and relevant. I think in the first two on the previous page she looks out of control and scared. My favoutite by far is the forth picture where I think she looks in control, concentrating and her legs are in a better position. The last one is also a great shot but I prefer the one above as the bar cuts through her legs. Do you think the lower bar distracts? Is it worth cloning it out?April 18, 2017 at 4:47 pm #14053
Thanks for the comments Pete
I kept the lower bar in as it gives a sense of the apparatus they are competing on, I even changed the red end of the bar, but did not like it. One thing to remember that these 5 images were taken in less than half a second. We do see the struggles and face contortions with out the photographs. I have some more images of competitors on this bar which depict Panic and fear.April 25, 2017 at 7:18 am #14061
These images were taken at Whitby and she designs bespoke creations for alternative weddings (Twisted Elm).
This was taken after the following images but the technique was the same, subdued lighting with on camera fill flash (-2).
I prefer neutral uncluttered back grounds but I thought the colour was not quite right, so…….
I desaturated it. I prefer this image.April 25, 2017 at 7:53 am #14062
I like the first one very much, Martin. I like the strong, direct gaze, the colour palette, and the classic pose with head and torso pointing in different directions (as Leonardo said they should in a portrait).April 25, 2017 at 7:32 pm #14065
Of the bottom two I also prefer the desaturated version. I like her coy expression in this photo but think her fingers are a bit untidy. She is photographed square on which makes her body look bigger than it does in the first photo where she is turned at an angle. I don’t think it’s a big problem though.April 25, 2017 at 7:57 pm #14068
Yes, I cannot disagree with your comments and all I will say is that I had great fun taking these images and meeting such interesting characters.April 25, 2017 at 8:48 pm #14069
Yes. That’s something I enjoy about photographing folk at events. You can meet the most interesting and friendly people and they’ll talk to you for ages. Sometimes it’s difficult to get away! thanks for sharing these Martin.April 26, 2017 at 6:26 pm #14076
Me too! I love this first shot – her obvious confidence in front of the camera. I like the other two but for me the flowers covering part of her chin just get in the way of her fantastic face and poise. Thanks for the tech info re flash!!April 29, 2017 at 4:06 pm #14083April 29, 2017 at 4:06 pm #14084April 29, 2017 at 4:07 pm #14085April 30, 2017 at 10:00 am #14101
Thanks for entry Ken. You’ve posted them just on the last day. I think I the vertical format suits the tulip better in this set of pictures. I prefer the last one best showing the whole tulip and blurry red background which give me the impression of a field full of tulips going into the distance. In the middle picture I feel that the dark out of focus tulip in the foreground is to dominate.
