    Gritty 52 Challenge For 2020.

    Hi Dave, Thank you. Timing was just down to luck truth be told, my other half got soaked as it took us several attempts. I suspended it with garden twine from the guttering on our summerhouse. I attached a sewing needle to a cane and then we counted 1,2,3 prick :-) I used natural light 50mm...

    Hi Stan, I love the dramatic yet eerie feel in image 1, the reflection is beautifully captured. I like image 2 especially with the tree balancing out the image, but image 1 is my choice.

    Critique FIRST ATTEMPT AT WATER BALLOONS

    Critique FIRST ATTEMPT AT WATER BALLOONS

    I took this one and used a needle tied onto a stick and got my other half to pierce the balloon directly from below. Timing is key, and someone who is prepared to get wet. I used natural light 50mm 1:4 @f1:4, ISO 100, 1/6400 in manual mode.

    Companions

    Beautifully captured shot, I would love to know where he thoughts are.... and her beautiful companion is patiently sat beside her. B&W suits this composition, colour would not have given it the same feeling.
