I like that last shot, if everything was frozen, then the sense of speed wouldn't be there. Love the detailed sharpness of the image overall and you absolutely know where they have been and where they are going. They are framed very nicely by their environment. Any you captured their fearless lean into where they are headed - and I like the contrast against the old slow red tractor on the left.
Thanks Piet. That is what I was trying to do, imperfectly as usual. I do wish I had a way to retain or recreate a little more of their faces, not all but a little. I did get a bit of Jack's expression though. The boys love daredevil riding.

maybe leave the background super sharp, but take the protagonists and give them an artistic treatment of some type, and perhaps draw some details back in - make it looks like animated characters invaded our world.

Good points, since artistic treatment changes all expectations.

This week's theme: Smoke. Well, ya'll already know I don't own a candle, and I find that currently I don't own a match either, took them to the country house for the Labor Day cookout. So unless I strike two rocks together I won't be making any kind of fire. Besides, it's supposed to be 111 degrees today.
So I did some emulation/play. Took a photo of great grandmother Johnson's old oil lamp with the sun rising behind the chimney. Then I played with some free Photoshop brushes that are supposed to let you create smoke. Fun even if kinda silly.

Then I dug around in the archives to find some real smoke, from a forest fire in Alberta we chanced upon two summers ago, in Jasper NP near Maligne Lake. They had just reopened the park as the fire had died down, but there was still a lot of smoke and smoldering going on and areas were closed to the public. I added some textures to get a little of the malevolent color we'd seen from a distance the day before, while it was still raging but we couldn't get in.

We had a weird assignment this week: to take a photo without looking at it through any kind of viewfinder, sort of shooting blind. I went along. My version was this: while I was out a couple of nights ago shooting the harvest moon, I aimed my camera down below the fishing pier and shot into the darkness there. What I got was water, weeds, a few dying water lilies, and of course some trash. Here's a crop of one, brightened up and dealt with rather creatively with Topaz Studio 2, a thing Topaz kindly sent me for free but I don't know what to do with. Every time I open it, it wants to update, and new stuff appears here and there. It seems to have various artistic filters, perhaps more than I've found, and some of them can be deconstructed like PS actions can.
