So. Here we are again. My second attempt at a 52. First was last year, and made it to about 30 shots before life got in the way and I got so far behind I couldn't get back in to it.

So obviously I'm back to try again.

Good Luck to everyone. I'll try to comment on as many pictures as I can, as constructively as I can. Please feel free to do the same for me.

Week 1 - New

Off to a bad start which is a bummer.

Not a huge amount of time or inspiration this week, but still made it out for an evening to a place I've not shot before. Not super happy with anything I took but this is the best of a bad bunch I think.

The DoF is far too shallow and annoyingly the ones taken with a higher Fstop just don't cut it.

Hopefully next week bears more fruit.

Thanks

Nothing wrong with that at all Ross!
You've captured some great colours in the sky beyond, and the shallow DoF works in their favour...very ethereal.
Love the deeper greens in the foreground and you've not lost the textures in the tree trunk too!
Nicely done!(y)

I agree with Gareth.
Nicely done. :clap:I wonder what a similar shot without the tree trunk would look like.
Your wish is my command!

I literally took hundreds of these. Haha. I think the DoF feels more shallow in this one though. Same settings as before though, and same focus as its a manual focus lens.

Welcome Back Ross :)
Sometimes you just have to PABD eh? I know I did quite a few times last year.
Fits the theme though, new growth :)
And that's quite an interesting effect you've captured with the tree trunks in the distance. Light wrapping around them I guess.

Week 2 - Clean

So not a huge amount of time again this week. This year seems a lot more hectic than this time last year!!

Tried to do some shots inside but with no flash equipment the results were inconsistent to say the least.

So here is Clean for this weeks shot.

Keep 'Em Clean (low).jpg

I know I haven't got around to commenting yet, but will get that sorted tomorrow when I have a day off. So get ready for my torrent of rubbish.

Thanks

Very nice image, and certainly fits the theme.
I like the use of DoF and colour in the image, they works very well together.
A really good, punchy image, whose simplicity is definitely a strong point.
Nicely done Ross.(y)
