It really sounds easy doesn't it? But remember - these are supposed to be Straight out of the Camera, uncropped images.... and we needed to isolate a line.
I had great fun getting out, and I had great laughs realizing how hard it is to isolate a line , and keeping an eye out for the backgrounds, foregrounds, and other junk that can show up.
Here was my final submission:
i think it is pretty simple, but taking the photo was not. I had to trek over ice, change my position ( to get rid of background items), Pray for not falling - all at a little city park! Who knew? The ice and snow are worse in town than they are at my house. I'll quit whining about it!!
This was one of my first ideas. But I decided it was way too many lines for what we were trying for.
And then of course - I looked for lines close to me. This image had to be cropped, there is a road int he background, and in no position could I cut that road out.... it was annoying ( ha ha)
I headed over to one of the neighboring farms thinking I could get a corn line - again - How in the world to isolate it? But I still like the lines
are you tired of lines yet? They are just everywhere - The one below - I couldn't figure out how to get rid of that weed in the foreground, but I worked on blowing out the clouds and color with changing the camera settings - to try to focus on the Brown weed line ( in the irrigation ditch)
And the last one - it's out my back window. There were so many lines going on - the weeds in the front, the tire tracks, the fields - it just made me giggle....
All this looking at lines - made me start looking at my quilting lines to, and how to use lines to create depth in a quilt..... hmmmm.... go think on that ( tee hee hee)
