K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Selfie

If you have been following my blog you would know that I hate taking selfies, the traditional way. And every time I try, I end up clicking on ‘twooo’, which makes it very weird. I always let my friends do the honors if we are in a group. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t take some. I do and I have posted some of these already, but got back to them and edited them a little bit more and am using them for this week’s Cosmic Photography Challenge prompt.
This one was taken in Munnar this year when we went there for our 3 day trip. Not a great shot, but I like how it brought out my profile. I was using my Canon 70D for all of these photographs, so I had to make sure that my camera isn’t in the picture and even if it was, it added value to it.

This one was taken in the cottage we were staying in Cork, Ireland. This was the first time I was seeing such a fireplace and one that we got around to using it too. So I framed myself and had to place my camera so that it wasn’t in the way. Looks like I am burning or is it the fire in me 😉 ?selfie2.JPG

This one is my ever favorite. It was taken in Chikmaglur resort’s restaurant. The restaurant was overlooking the mountains and the view in the window was very beautiful. When I was walking by, I thought I could obscure myself in those tree leaves and tried to angle the shot in a way that the window framed my profile and that my profile is covered with those tree leaves. I absolutely love this one and am very proud of myself to get this shot well, at least to my standards. selfie3.JPG

    When I saw “selfie,” I thought of you immediately. 😀 Nicely done. I particularly like the last one. It has fantastic texture. 🙂

      Really??? (checking the photos)….. You mean my profile right ? 😉

        You know that in lightroom, detail in the darkest shadow can often be restored by adjusting brightness and contrast.
        Even my so called “selfies” are not posted as is. I apply distortion to my facial features then blacken it. The face can never be seen.

    Very nice shots, well thought out. I love that your silhouette has a different quality in each one, but my favorite is the double-edged first one.

      Thank you, Sue 🙂 I am glad each one had a different angle to it.
      The first one also had my friend walking into the frame from the inside of the room, when I was about to click. Thankfully, she was just a little close to the edge. But with the effects, it isn’t visible.
