Well today is yet another Dull day here X-T3 + XF50mm f2. Grey is a neutral tone which is intermediate between B&W, because it only reflects a little light so it is perceived as a DULL colour :cool:

Nice shot Dave, I had some great dull clouds all morning while I was out with my little one sans camera, and now it is sunny!

As I had a free day to my self today I knew just what shot I`d take for the snappers choice theme, Jazz and the reason why I totally love the saxophone is Baker Street as to me that was the best ever saxophone solo I have ever heard. X-T3 + XF50mm f2 today at the Jazz gig in The Better Half.

Nice snappers choices - I like a bit of Sax but prefer Alto as that's what my daughter plays (although she has Tenor and Soprano to double on.)

Hi Dave,

Dull - To my eyes it needs definite black and white points, which would make it more punchy, but I guess I'm missing the point...
Free Week - Defo #1 for me, that totally rocks (or is that totally jazzes ;) ) The additional person, the strong blacks and whites, yes yes yes.

You really surprise me there, Dave with your choice of subject for this week. :) :LOL:

Joking apart, I love #2 for its unclutter (is that a word?) cleaner background and the mono conversion suits the subject and scene.

Thank you guys for the comments, free week had to be a jazz shot :D

Like most of the country we have had rain after rain, and still have it now and into next week so a bit of a shoehorn for my take on near.

Sam and Sarah both have to be near the mic from last nights jazz gig.

Hi Dave,
A bit of a catch up from me!
Empty - Both nice shots and fit the theme well. The interior shot is more pleasing of the two.
Buildings - Three good shots. I'm going to plump for the first one as I prefer the subtle colour pop.
Soft - Two nice shots. As for fitting the theme? I'm not so sure...
Old - Nice shots there too. I agree re the sepia treatment. The gravestone works great in mono and the door works well in colour.
Flower - All three are good shots. The first one for me really pops though. Nice one.
Dull - Perfect fit for the theme not much more to say!
Snappers choice - Three excellent shots here. My favourite is the first one with the bass player in as it tells more of a story for me.
Near - That works on two levels as Stan said above. Great image.

Nice singers shot. For me a shoehorn is only when you didn’t take the shot with the theme in mind. For me the whole idea of this challenge is to take a photo specifically for the theme - the same week and post it that same week. Note I said “for me” :)

Hi Dave

Snappers Choice, I like the rendition of the first image better, more contrast and tones are great, but the chap playing the Double Bass interferes a bit with the main man.
I like the detail in the chaps face on the image you selected.
I agree that the Sax is a great instrument.

Near, another great Image Dave, works to the theme for me.
