#1 for me. It must be the exposure, but it's really hard to put my finger on why.
Thank you. It is the exact same picture just with the exposure raised. I thought everyone would want it lighter to be honest, but I think the darker one really shows the texture and details more. I'm glad it wasn't only me that preferred it. I hope it ticks the fill the frame - just about#1 for me. It must be the exposure, but it's really hard to put my finger on why.
Ha ha! I haven't looked yet - but it doesn't surprise me. I had planned to photograph my daughter, but she was busy and whilst I was waiting, I had a practice and a 'that will do' moment#1 Great minds think alike eh Bee?
Which IMO fits the theme much better.
The swan although a nice image is far too light to fit the theme IMO.
Thanks HelenWorks really well on both counts. Again, I like the light on the hands that seems to give the image more depth.
I often find myself trying to work out bits of a photo that aren't the main subject too I had some where the hand at the bottom was more obvious, but it's surprising how many attempts it took to get the right bit lit - standing in the right place and at the right angle etc. Now you mention it I probably should have used one with a better hand underneath.The camera image although a bit confusing at first trying to work out which parts of you are on the left and bottom does fit the theme very well
As with cobra's image, the low key lighting makes this work.
Thanks Susie. Do you mean my hand underneath? I did consider darkening it down so it was almost obscure. I had some with better hands in and some with no hand underneath, and quite a few that were completely unusablePerfect for the theme Beebop, it is really nicely done but I think I prefer it without the extra reflection at the bottom.
Yes it was that one, I find sometimes I’ve got so many to choose from I totally lose the plot and just take pot luck that I’ve picked the bestThanks Susie. Do you mean my hand underneath?

Thank you. It's a first for me to be so quick! Just lucky I was out today.Rough
Straight in with an early submission.
Nicely caught, it's not easy with a unpredictable moving subject.
Thank you. I did have to wash my lens down a few times this morning.Very nice early entry! You've caught the action well and it very much implies a rough ocean. You can almost feel the spray!
As for reflection, that's a huge chunk of glass! It looks like your knuckles are white just holding it all up! Certainly a reflection though!
Thanks PaulA good image for Rough. Well done!
Thanks. I did get cold hands by the end and I got caught in the rain and hail. Nice to get out though.Well done ....what a lucky thing we had such rough weather, you captured the action really well, I like that a lot.
I was a wimp, I’ll hopefully venture out tomorrow
Thanks Helen. It was a gnarly day and without doubt it is a dangerous sport. That is very sad to hear about the fatality. I wonder what went wrong? My OH is a keen kitesurfer so I have a lot of photos. I don't worry about him too much at the local beach but I do if we're away somewhere more remote.Straight in the bag. Well done. It certainly looks rough and I would have been there but for lockdown (I'm only 10 miles as the crow flies but still a bit too far... ). Sadly in the last storms a kite-surfer was found dead on the beach at Walberswick - it looks fun but it can be very dangerous. Hats off to them..
Thanks. Yes there were a few crazy guys (and gals) out there yesterday, including my OH - pic aboveI didn't realise the theme this week was 'crazy guy in a storm'. They do that on the coast near me, must be mad. Good quick-shot.
Thanks Dave. It was a tad breezyLove the beautiful swan image but imo you put the best one in the main thread.
Rough is a very nice shot too, looked breezy.
I'm afraid I am right eyed! I wish I'd had the forethought to open my other eye like others have in their similar images. Not sure what is odd - perhaps it's just my faceHi @Bebop
The selfie ... I love the idea of this, but there is something not quite right, I've been puzzled, thinking you are trying too hard to hide behind the camera. I've just realised what's a bit odd here: you are left-eyed.
Rough ... is a beaut. Well done for capturing that, liking the frozen spray, you must be chuffed.
Thanks - yes it's very unlike me to post before the 6th day It takes the pressure off for the week nowBlimey, that was quick!
That certainly looks rough to me Bee.
Apparently the coroner hasn't been able establish a cause. He was a very experienced instructor in his early 50's so it's a bit of an oddity!Thanks Helen. It was a gnarly day and without doubt it is a dangerous sport. That is very sad to hear about the fatality. I wonder what went wrong?
Many thanks. It is very tricky especially since they're often at an angle.
The second probably shows the rough sea more, but it's a very easy shot and he's not facing me. (I only took it because it's my husband )nice image for Rough, I think I prefer the second one ypu've posted though to be honest, it seems to give a bit more of a sense of scale to those huge waves. Nice job
Things can go wrong. A man died at our local beach a couple of years ago when he hit the cliffs - the wind can get very iffy around the cliffs. Years ago they used to tether the board to themselves, like surfers do, but then they learned it would catapult out of the water like a missile. My husband got a cut head through his helmet - I think he wouldn't be here if it wasn't for his helmet. He doesn't wear one now but his board is not tethered either.Apparently the coroner hasn't been able establish a cause. He was a very experienced instructor in his early 50's so it's a bit of an oddity!
Thanks Ian. It turns out I took quite a few where the silk wasn't quite right or I'd just missed enough depth of focus - should have gone for f/16!!The silk background adds to it IMO. A good combination of shoehorned smooth + actual smooth.
The composition works (for me) and I like the contrast between the egg and the background.
Thanks Allan - it had to be done This was photographed on the ironing board which I've realised is a better height to work at. Ironing having been the first idea, but didn't work out.Good combination of 2 smooth objects nicely lit I assume you have been playing with your new toys
Thanks Dave. I think a whole new world has opened up for both of us with our new toysVery nice image Bebop, both are smooth with some very smooth lighting
