    here I go :D

    week 1 - direction

    I took quite a few different shots at different angles, and also tried different PP. I guess it's quite a boring subject lol, plus the light was poor and the colour of the stone left very little contrast against the grass

    but here it is, a trig point next to the horse folly at Farley's Mount in Winchester

    it's been a mixed start, I didn't get up so I don't have the car, but I found what I need within a cycle ride so if the wind ever dies down I'll be happy :banana:

    ha ha well today we cycled to the 'spot' with dog in trailer, had to get hubby to collect the dog cos she wouldn't stop whining to be out (she's too old to run with the bikes now but she wants to run anyway), got very wet in the process, I had an off, and we couldn't find the bloomin thing - so off to another spot tomorrow where I know there's one for definite, phew

    Fair play to ya!

    I've narrowed my idea down to 2, one I need to find it first, but has to be the right way round and shape and of course all the ones I can find are wrong so far and of course it's an outdoor shot so I need specific conditions.

    The second I can do in the comfort and warmth of the house but one of the props I need has gone missing and I know if I buy another it'll suddenly appear!!

    Yes that works for me, was getting intrigued with your comments about needing the car and getting up early,
    Now the picky bit :shrug:, looks like it needs straitening up a tad and the right ring is in focus but not the left, but love the idea

    thanks Trevor, when I got it on the PC I also thought that I should have taken it from the other side so the 'Y' would look like an arrow pointing away, also get the corners lined up to look like a diamond/arrow

    there's supposed to be one within Basingstoke which is where we cycled to, couldn't find it tho

    Hiya Summer, like the idea! Out of the 2 pics you have posted, I like and prefer number 2, better dof and the horizon is better too.

    Hi Summer,

    I too prefer the 2nd shot.
    The DOF keeps you looking at the trig point, which is the object of the theme, but I think I'd prefer the shot with the BG more in focus.

    The BG also looks very grain, but I notice your ISO was 100, so is it the PP you've done?

    Final niggle, I'd crop a little off the bottom of the frame too.

    Good luck with the 52 and Happy New Year

    Neil

    Interesting start. BG in #2 is a bit odd :thinking:

    On both, the orientation is a tad out. I'd like to be able to look across the metal bits :thinking: so they are all lined up, if you know what I mean.

    Cheers and subsribed

    Just when I thought I has seen enough photos of open books for a life time this comes along, very well thought out and love the lighting.

    I also like the way that the cross appears solid and yet the shadow cast looks as if it should be hollow.

    Nice work Summer :)

    thanks Alex, it took me ages to get that cross to stay still, in the end I just put the camera on continuous and hoped to get one with it facing the right way

    The lighting is great on this especially as its your first go at it. I also like the shadow from the cross as its not solid like the cross!

    Well done and i look forward to looking at your next 50!!

    Spooky. Reminds me of a scene in The Exorcist.

    Good use of lighting to emphasis the subject and the cross works really well, especially the shadow.

    I'd like a bit more detail in the beads.

    Cheers.
