    Very creative, love it.

    My brain appears to be wired to 'literal mode', and whilst I couldn't find anything 'frozen in time', i did find some 'time in frozen'.



    Watch placed in glass, immersed in water, frozen in freezer
    Ice cubes added to scene
    Subject painted with white light (head torch) for details, then red light (head torch) for mood.

    Here is mine and i don't even know why i bother with you guys and your fabbo shots ..but i do..this is a combo ,the Fishtail mountain at the foot hills of the Himalayan mountain range at Pokhara , Nepal which i shot 2008. That is the background ..then i placed the Kobenhavn figurine and cotton wool as well as the watch in a position i liked in the foreground. As always i might change it again but then again maybe not , just squeezed this in 'coz i'm going to Wanaka this weekend and busy after that . Yeah a bit like Paul got stuck in the time zone..Name:  _MG_6447 resize-2 copy.jpg

    Weka i don't believe you ,have you tried being creative ? Your photography knowledge is much greater then mine .. in photoshop i wouldn't have had to piddle around with torch lights , stupid falling over background card etc...not to mention foul language ...(Everyone goes away , do not even look at Lia) i could have civilly done photoshop layers if i knew how to do that and i reckon you could do a creative shot without photoshop as sure as day is day and night is night ..go on give it a nudge

    Tried been creative but just not wired that way. At best I can imatate a photo but not come up with an original.
    I accept what gifts I have as well as those I dont.

    Cant pre visualise ....... yet i know people who are great at it but cant shoot a landscape ...... they cant see it.

    In my photography journey I have tried most things. Landscape is the one I "get"

    I can see where you are coming from ..i am experimenting to see if i am any good at anything (photography speaking). I am total crap at scenery , that much i do know..which is not so good since i'm going to Wanaka , a top spot scenery region..you however may just find a frozen naturally in time scenery shot though

    Um yes frozen in time, well in my interpretation that is any photograph at any time as that is what a Photo does freeze time for that instant.

    This is a picture of me in mid-air taken by one of our groupies (well, the partner of someone in the band). Not technically a comp entry, but I can't stay in that position for long.

    Well, to be honest I'm a bit overawed by you guys. But I'm going to do it anyway - here's my first photo.

    This is a historic graveyard at West Melton, near Christchurch. It shows the unsteady headstones with warning tape and wires holding them in place.
    It's been in much the same state since the 4th September 2010 earthquake. The graves can't be weeded because they are unsafe, and the headstones can't be fixed until there is someone available to do the job. And with so much to be fixed, they are just waiting waiting waiting.

    The headstone on the right is on quite a lean and I think will fall if we get another reasonable shake.

    The edge of time... When I took this shot my mind thought about those sci-fi film scenes where they transition to lightspeed travel... what would happen at the end of the space time continueum... frozen in time ahead of time?

    Thanks Lia.

    Nice shot Mesodan, just noticed the way she is holding her other hand, well primed for a bit of photoshop fun composition. Put a plate of drinks on that other hand and she could be the worlds fastest waitress. Just a crazy idea
