Gifted by Mr-Frenzy Gifted by Mr-Frenzy
The main idea for this picture came after a game of backgammon with a friend of mine. You know, there's allways someone who mysteriously has a better grip on the dices than others. Yeah i know, logic tells otherwise :D Anyways, this is the first piece with my Canon 5D. I'm using my trusty Canon 24-70mm f2.8L USM. The aperature is f/22 and the shutter is set at 2 sek. Im using ISO 50 with no flash. Well, as you have noticed, the egg has a supersmooth look. And that was my intention. The original picture got tuned up in photoshop cs2 to get that smooth, soothing look i was aiming for.

Tools of the trade: Canon 5D w/Canon 24-70mm f2.8L USM, Photoshop CS2, and a load of coffee :D
Time: 5 hours including shooting

Hope you guys like it :), i sure had fun making it

Hahaha great one mate :thumbsup:

Truth be told, I'v had a similar idea as well only that I thought of having pieces of cards in there "aces of spade etc etc", so the same concept ^^.

Now I dunno, no it's not fun anymore... now you destroyed my thought :shakefist: hahaha.

I love the actual smoothness you got there , works very very well and I think makes the shot look better than the actual one. To have focus is one thing but to have crisp apperance is another. Crispy shots might not make it in all situations, and I think this is one of the situations that a supercrisp egg would look wierd in a way... get what I'm sayin here? ; ).

Great shot, good light, funny concept ( :shakefist: ) and overall neat.

Of course this piece deserves a :+fav: after I'v said now hehe.
