Thoughtfully focused and composed.

Nice One!!!

I love the way the knees are in such sharp focus. The image needs the caption though, as it took me a few seconds to work out where the "couple" was! Mind you, I could just be extraordinarily dim. ;)

Haha! That's a great one, Sam. Took me a few seconds, and once I had found them, I looked at the title.

It took me a while to observe... But now when I do... I like it!

Very clever!!! I like it!

good focus on the knees!

I like this, it has an almost soothing dreamlike quality to it.
The couple on the grass are probably staring at the clouds and making shapes out of them. What a great way to spend a summer day!

the blurs seem artificial to me, anyway, nice idea

From far away, I thought it was a picture of a man on a horse. That ivy is deceiving.

Great shot. Interesting idea of composing so just their knees are in view. Great job!

Now that is funny! Your fast eyes at work to catch that one. One wonders what they are sitting/lying on in such a place?

I also find the soft colors of the scene intersting in how unusual they seem. Cream and green with knees.

its cool how you chose a narrow depth of field to focus on the legs.

Can you believe that I loved your site SO much that I was motivated enough to click every "day before" button & look at every single photo you posted.

My camera broke back in May (I'm not quite a professional however), and I'm missing it terribly and can't afford to have it fixed. Looking at your photos definitely inspire me. I'm getting a new camera for Christmas and I will definitely be visiting your site, and commenting a lot more.

Again, great shots... looking forward to each morning post :)

There is so much detail in the photo besides the couple's knees that it makes it hard to see the subject at first.

Posted by Vlad at December 20, 2006 10:33 AM

funny that only the knees are in focus.. no doubt at all as to what is the subject of the photo. Made me smile :)

Posted by Susie at December 20, 2006 11:12 AM

Funny shot. For a moment i was saying to myself this is it? But then i read you comment and paid some more attention...
the soft focus on everything except the knees is a nice touch

Posted by Abraham Alexander at December 20, 2006 11:23 AM

you have an amazing eye to spot such fine detail in th world
