Not sure how you manage to fit photos in along with the spreadsheet and commenting on others photos - I think the commenting is going to take most of the week with little time left for anything else :D
You ain't wrong Christine :D

But I do enjoy the commenting, I'm still learning so my comments are usually minimal

The spreadsheet is easy after a couple of weeks, it's just a matter of adding Ticks :)

Happy New Year to you too mate. :wave:

Shouldn't there be a photo on here by now? :whistle:
Grrrrrrrr :razz:

You don't change :LOL:

<EDIT> Hmmmmm in fact, shouldn't you be singing up for a 52 challenge, I guess it would be loosely linked to mini spares each week but ;)

Exhibit A - A field Mouse steals my Sweets... how dare he :D

SOOC - Crop only, as not wanting to spend time editing in an old version of LR

Wk 1 - 'Sin' - At work... 'Theft from a bowl'

Taken to the other side of a desk, dragged into a Document file in the middle tier of a rack of in/out trays... the offending rodent ate all the Strawberry and Orange creams in the bowl they had been left in over Christmas, left sprinklings of wrapper everywhere ... Bless it :)


Wk 1 - 'Sin' by TP DK..., on Flickr

My ThoughtsThink the BG needs a bit of a clean up, maybe a WB tweak and should have persuaded the mouse to drag the blue one to the left a bit :)

Will do a bit of work on it when PC back and am using my descent monitor rather than the poxy lappy

Thanks for visiting :)

Hi DK. Got your shot in before week 2 starts (y) White balance needs a little tweak as you say. A little too cluttered for my liking. I'd just keep the orange sweet and wrapper with a few sprinkles and juggle with composition a little more. Need to train your mouse better :)

'Ello, my first reaction was, 'bloody hell, he's blown some sweets up!'. For me, it's the cluttered and dynamic nature that really makes this one.

Now I know you didn't blow anything up, but I'd like to think you did....gives me an idea for a future theme :D

Good start (y)

Cheers.

About time you posted something....the main focus for my eyes seems to be the OOF blue sweet which says you should have focused on the blue one :D but I'm on my third large whiskey and coke so :bonk:

BTW my first sin would have eliminated your field mouse :cool:


and probably my second sin too

Hi Dean, quite a tenuous link to the theme I think ;)
It starts your 52 on time though which is a good thing, playing catch up from the off can never be good eh? :LOL:
I find my eye drawn to the blue wrapper sweet in the foreground as it looks oof to me. I appreciate you dont have access to your computer to tidy things up so we will have to let you off.....just this once :LOL:
New theme tomorrow, onwards and upwards (y)

I did keep it as found, but played about with them after a few shots but they then became too placed

Cheers Andy... that's whiy I took ity as found, not very even but a bit chaotic

Now I know you didn't blow anything up, but I'd like to think you did....gives me an idea for a future theme :D

Cheers.
Oooo that sounds interesting !!!!!

About time you posted something....
You ain't kidding :LOL:

Hahaaaa... no I think you are right, I should have got my flash out to steady the shots up, but with work colleagues about I felt odd as it was :LOL:

I'll see what other ones I have :thinking:

Nahhhhh 'Really' :D

I was hoping... ok praying I could get away with ermmmm 'Theft' or 'Greed' :D

Exactly mate, I have all my 2012 taken now, just need to edit when PC back :)

I'm sooooo glad it's the Motherboard that was the problem, I was dreading it being the hard drive, as 4 of my shots are on there edited alredsy and ready for posting :nuts:

Your right... and Thanks (y)

Hi Dean..... as per the above....Iain has a great way of expressing what I'm thinking but doing it far more subtly than I could :LOL:

& well done for posting up in the right week.....only 51 weeks to keep doing the same mister :clap:

Well done - finding time to get the camera out as well as everything else..

I love the colours and teh scattered wrappers, but I'm also of the opinion that the blue one really should be in focus rather than the orange wrapper.

I'm really not looking forward to my self-imposed "SOOC" weeks, but you've shown that PP is not the most important thing, as the only neg from me wouldn't be rectified in PP anyway.

Week 2 is upon us, (y)

You really do have a mice problem? If any mousey ate my choccies I'd blow the mousey up!
That I do... and he has 'met his maker' :cautious:

I also agree with Iain, but hey at least you got a shot in on time :clap: aren't we doing well this year ;)
Fingers crossed your PC is home soon.
Thanks... me too :(

plenty of orange creams left here for it :) looks like it enjoyed its sin!
It did little bugger, can't believe it ate my last bag of watsits out of my draw too :bat:

Hi Graham - Thanks :)

Yeah very true... I always think afterwards, should of used flash and deeper dof... on-wards and upwards as they say :)

SOOC isn't too bad as I think we normally tend to take a shot knowing we can tweak it... but when SOOC more thought DOES go into it

Right....

Took a couple on the way in to work today and just before I left, I think I prefer the simpleness of the first shot below... I feel with the hedge line is not symmetrical enough for the second one to work... and maybe the telegraph pole need cloning out :thinking:

Again not too much PP... mainly Straighten/Crop/WB (and again will probably re-edit all once PC is home)

#1 for me. Nice and simple and bang on theme. IMO, and I know there was none there, but a nice splash of red behind would look good.

#2 is on theme but needs a much deeper layer of snow. I actually don't mind the poles.

Cheers.

I like both of these (y)
The second doesn't look very white to me though, perhaps would have been better if you were 20 yards further down the road where the hedges either side would have been at the same height...as it is it feels wonky to me even though it isn't

The second works a little better for me, the first could do with a focal point, maybe a nice robin or something... shame about the branch that's fallen vertical on the left hand side of that as well. The second one looks good to me, very wintery.

I like both but prefer no.2. They-re both well in theme , no.2 - I like the long road in the snow. No.1 illustrates heavy snowfall but just a bit too detailed for me, maybe a bit of snow covered landscape would work in the bottom half of the photo? Great job nevertheless!

Think all crit covered in those 4 posts there :LOL:, love the first, aside from getting a robin in (and on a third) :lol, which would never happen (not to me anyway).

2nd could go quite a bit brighter on the road without clipping, depends if you've got your computer back yet as the sky can't take as much.

And in nice and early too. :clap:
