Found In Haystack 235/365: Needle

    Newer Older

    I've had this image in my mind most of the day after I learned the subject. To make this shot I used the gold side of my reflector and shot my photo warm so that the natural light coming from the other side of the frame would take on a blue hint. I think the colors go well together and the blue adds some depth.

    We've not had internet access for a few days here. I did take some of the challenge photos, such as the out of focus shot, but I wasn't too impressed with it and it isn't being published.

    This is my "Needle" entry to the 2009 Photo Challenge hosted by

      Beautiful composition! The b&w looks excellent but the needle disappears in that one. Great DOF.

      Great concept, and I love the color contrast.

      Nice sharp shot of the needle. I like the colored version better because the needle really stand out.
