REJECTED FRAME: Early Morning on Hoth

    Newer Older

    I find it really hard to get a good capture of the Lego Snowspeeder, boy, have I tried! This is the photograph that ended up being uploaded from the session after I decided that the frame above did not match the image I had set out to do. There were numerous things that were supposedly wrong with this shot, I just don't seem to remember them anymore. Or I don't want to...

    (Explored! Rats, no, dropped from #204...)

      I can relate to your creative frustrations. It's almost daily for me. However, I think it's a cracking shot, even though it doesn't deliver on your goals. Thanks for sharing it.

      Yeah this is still an awesome shot! Your snow pics are simply top shelf material, even the "rejects". Bravo!

      no clue with this is a rejected shot.. great! the snowspeeder looks great! i just don't really have the impression he's moving... but that's nothing a little ps session could not change.. as usual great work!

      Thank guys! It is often hard to put a finger on what's wrong in any particular short, it's often just a feeling. I think what I got hung up with this shot is the way the snowspeeder is just hanging there. I couldn't figure out a way to change that. Like legofenris points out, it would be simple to add a little motion blur to the speeder to make it go, but then, I feel, it wouldn't be "true" anymore. So this got scrapped.

      I think it's a nice shot on it's own, though, and that's why I created a new set to my photostream "Leftovers & Alternatives": now I have an excuse to post random captures from the vaults when I have no time (or ideas) to shoot new stuff. Ha!

      Compliments! What do you use for snow? It looks great!

      It's missing the snow being blown upwards from turbulence & a tin bit of motion blur maybe?
      would be a cracking cracking shot - instead it's just brilliant :)
