Something personal and absolut non-wolfish today :meow:

With this photo, I've taken the third place in a local photography contest :iconcheerplz:

To be honest, I'm quite proud and very happy about this result. As a photographer, you are always in doubt about your own skills. You've heard a thousand times, that it's the photographer who makes the photo, not the camera (and lens). But there are so many times, you can't belive this fact. Especially for an animal photographer, where you know, that the right equipment is so damn important. So I often don't believe, that I really do something special, something no one else could do in this way. But suddenly, I displace professional photographers, just with creativity, passion and my way of doing something. That's such a damn great feeling :heart:

But now to the picture: The theme of the contest was "home". I didn't want to shot something typical like a local church, our forest or any monument in the region. I wanted to do something more idealistic. As I've thought a lot about home in the past months, it was absolutly clear, that I want to shot people. Home has nothing to do with a location - people, love, friendship make a place to a home. To bring something local in it, I chose hay bales as they are a typical thing laying around here. And then everything was clear.
Home is ...
... where somebody always will give you a leg up on a hay bale.
... where somebody will sit 'til darkness together with you on a hay bale just to see the sundown and be with you.
... where a friend is waiting for you.
That's home in my definition and this home means so much to me.

My wonderful models: :iconkhevyel: and :iconkiwiproductions: My biggest thanks goes to you, for your patience and the willingness to support me :hug: You're so great!

Now an exposition, a calender with my photo in it and some money (to buy a new lens *.*) wait for me. So happy :heart:

Sorry for my late answer =(
Feel free to use it as a reference and show it to me =) I wouldn't want it to be used as real stock but I don't mind in case of references.

It's funny because when I was found this picture I was listening to "Paradise" by Coldplay XD

Ob ich beim Anblick des Bildes jetzt unbedingt an Heimat gedacht hätte, kann ich nicht sagen. Aber das Foto gefällt mir: Ich mag das Zusammenspiel von Sonne und Wolken, die entstandene Lichtstimmung und deine Entscheidung, die Personen nur als Silhouetten zu zeigen. :)

Vielen Dank - für die lieben Worte und auch für die Kritik =) Man muss wirklich um eine kleine Ecke denken, bevor man das Thema erkennt. Mir persönlich gefällt das ganz gut, allerdings wäre ein Foto mit einer neuen Idee zu Heimat, die man sofort intuitiv begreift natürlich noch toller. Man übt nie aus ^-^

Freut mich, dass du mir die Kritik nicht übel nimmst. Wobei das eigentlich gar keine echte Kritik war: Das Foto finde ich nämlich super! Außerdem ist es doch besser, mal etwas "anderes" zu machen und die Leute zum "um die Ecke denken" anzuregen, statt ein Foto einzureichen, was in ähnlicher Art und Weise viele andere auch eingereicht haben. :D

Auch von mir nochmal Glückwunsch. :huggle:
Vielleicht wird's ja ein berühmtes Foto, das später alle möglichen Leute versuchen nachzustellen, sobald sie irgendwo Heuballen sehen. :meow:

Vermutlich war dafür der Wettbewerb etwas zu "local" aber wer weiß ^.^ Ich bin mal gespannt auf die Preisverleihung.
