This Raise The Cup project, while never really an aggressive pursuit, has become a tidy collection of some of the greatest moments captured in time. Sometimes the photos truly captures the essence of the split second while other times I feel the photo is compromised a bit too much, taking away from the authenticity of the moment.
These two cards are that of the latter.
The background is completely gone from this photo. And I really think that's a key part to some of the stellar shots in the set. In its place is a foil-type background that does look slick - from a production standpoint. Aesthetics...not so much.
A bit of a miss on this one, but it's still a keeper for the collection.
Taken from the Kraft dinner collection, Claude is looking extremely excited holding that trophy above his head....against a red background.
Once again, the fact that he's been cut out from the environment completely changes the presentation of this
I'm glad I can add this pair of less than acceptable cards to the binder. I somehow am supposed to feel a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment.....right?
