The Dancers

The Dancers
A panorama of my parents i always wanted to do but could never, i always wanted to get the three shots together as they danced across the decking . For all its faults this is 4 hours and 6 goes. Enjoy the benefit of PTGui, the hidden strains of Engelbert Humperdinck from the Ipod, over 60 years of marriage and a very wet day.

Petar Bojić, Percy Schramm, gezginruh, Karp Panta and 13 other people have particularly liked this photo

It was the three dancers i was after but i did have to sacrifice the back ground which is ok by me but has taken some work to get it this far. I have sent them a copy as well.

I can hear the music and feet shuffling on these wooden boards. I am always amazed to the efforts you go to to get these photos so perfect. A tribute not only to your parents but also to you. I am glad that they too will get a copy of this. A Gudrun says -with a picture of happiness like this who looks for faults!

Cheers, Herb

Steve Paxton club has replied to Herb Riddle club
yes they have a copy but in truth have no idea of how much went into getting it all together which i think is also a good thing as well.... getting three photos in a space of two in reality. this is how i remember my parents always. thanks and glad you think the effort was worth it.

Hi Steve,

You are to be rightly congratulated for this superb result. Not only to achieve the technical result, but also the personal celebration of a long life of happiness! As the children always say at their parents celebrations "If it wasn't for you, I wouldn't be what I am"

Best Wishes, and a good weekend
Peter

Thank you Peter this is where my love of photography first came from my own parents. dad started in his teens like myself after watching for years helping, trying to understand his ideas and visions. I my self go out with a photo in my head that I want to capture when I am Planning some thing. This is a very happy memory of them at a time when they still had a lot of life in them the years have not been so kind but what happens to us all. they still go out and take photos every day in NZ they keep themselves busy and enjoying life as much as they can with there limitations.

It is so true with out them I would not be where I am to day and how I am as well. we all need to thank and celebrate our parents. I am just thankful it rained so much I was kept inside, my wife knew it was not going so well to plan. I took my time with the last and it payed off for all its faults.
Enjoy!
