The dogs eyes, just wondering what it’s staring at ? Seems transfixed
I think one of my children was dangling a toy. The hardest part of this shot was getting the brute to sit still for more than 3 seconds, and secondly getting that to happen under the catchment of the light.

Thanks for all the lovely comments everyone. I’ll try and get his week’s submission in on time. :)

Very nice shot. Lovely detail on the eye. Welcome to the 52s.

That dog is gonna have to be nailed to the floor as, with springer, cocker and lurcher, he's gonna take some serious recall training ;)

Week 2 - late again - clean. I just liked the way the light was hitting these two glasses on the washing up drainer. converted to mono (technique). The rubber gloves were left in for context along with the two baking trays. 2 clean-1.jpg

Great details in the glasses, and good use of DoF for separation.
Nicely lit, and works very well as a mono, and that drip on the tap is a nice touch!
Very nice work(y)
thanks Gareth. That drip has been the bane of my life for the last 12 months. It's on the list of things to do, but the list keeps getting longer and that one keeps getting pushed further down :)

I've actually flipped the image horizontally too as I preferred it the other way round. I can't say why or how i prefer it, only that to me, it looks better.

Almost caught up with the pack and here is my slightly rushed entry for OPEN.

These gulls were out in the middle of the open water, but sat on a patch of ice. It could easily be confused with wet sand on a beach if you just glanced at it.

Excellent wintry image @gremlin16 .(y)
The blue tones work so well to convey the cold feel.
Great detail in the gulls and the clever use of the fog works nicely to add separation, almost like a shallow DoF would have.
For a rushed image, it works tremendously well.
Hats off sir....although probably best to keep your hat on....looks freezing out there!!:giggle:

New - Lovely new puppy, very cute. You did well to get so much detail in the fur, very tricky with an all black dog
Clean - Good choice to go mono with this one I think. Makes it an nice clean image. Everyday scene that you have made interesting
Open - Really did think they were on a beach, till I read your info. The blue cast works well to make it feel even colder. I like the mistiness in the bg too. Is this just the water or was it foggy?

:D

Hi there,

New - What an adorable puppy. Nice shot. Has a light HDR feel about it which I like.
Clean - Very nice shot. Works well in Mono. The focus on the glasses really tells the story.
Open - I too like the blue cast to the image. It fits perfectly to portray a chilly scene. Nice and open in the foreground and background too.

Thank you for your kind comments. The Open shot was taken out in the middle of a local lodge. It is a mixture of water, ice and fog. I still think it looks like a beach even though I took the photo :)

Thanks everyone for the kind comments. I am determined to get this week's image up on time, and definitely going to get round to commenting on everyone else's works. When I have done this challenge previously, I was in a different job where I literally had time to sit and go through the forum for hours at a time. On the flip side, i am much happier now even though i have less time on my hands.

Oops, I somehow missed your 'Open' image when I was here yesterday. I'm working my way down the 'Images Only' thread and have just come to it. It's a super scene with background mist, the birds almost lined up for you across the middle and the details and texture of the ice there and in the open foreground. The blue tones convey a definite cold atmosphere too.
