Photo Friday - One

I've decided to start writing short comments on the photos that go up here, as much to help we work out the process by which I pick photos out as anything else, and also to track what, if anything I've done to tweak the image. I'll be cutting them, and you should feel free to ignore them, if you don't like that sort of thing.

This one is as much to get me started back up as anything else - I've been unhappy with everything I've taken in the last week, for one reason or another, and I want to force myself to start putting something up more often.

I've also decided to start having a go at Photo Friday, and I was a little short of inspiration. I have another version of this shot with the focus on the flights, rather than the bull, but I felt the writing on the dart distracted from the "One"-ness of the shot, and generally made it a weaker shot.

I've tweaked the colours on this a little, to brighten the red and green, and bleach "white" sections of the dartboard a bit - they were rather more yellow in the available light.

Bullseye! Literally. I think you truly hit the mark on this one.

...and FWIW, I highly approve of the commenty bits. I think it's fascinating to hear about alternate shots that didn't make the cut, and how you arranged or altered or cropped the images to get to the perfect state.

I like this a lot. It's a creative take on this week's Photo Friday theme. I'm looking forward to seeing your future submissions as well! As for the comments, I like them.
