Attack of the Sleepies 37/52

Some times when it gets late even a good book isn't enough to fend off the sleepies.


Better viewed on black.


For group learning group: To try to enhance the sleepy feel of this I kept the DoF pretty shallow, trying to get mostly Splash's face in focus. I think I could have narrowed even a bit further. When I processed this I tried to enhance that feel even further by adding a couple of degrees of edge blur to the photo, which I liked. As it was Splash was being motionless for 4 to 13 seconds for the long exposures for the various versions of this that I shot. Wouldn't mind repeating the shot at some point with daylight to see how that would differ from the lamp light here.
