Thank you for the comment, she's not too keen on having her picture taken now so I was lucky to snap a few while she was messing in the garden. The XT-3 didn't do too bad using the wide tracking. :)

Blimey Rick!!
That is one exceedingly crisp, modern and amazing interior!!
Definitely wouldn't look out of place in a glossy, interior design brochure!
Cannot fault it!:clap:
Although I think you might have a bit of sensor dust, top left near the picture frame! Sorry!
Thanks Gareth, I hadn't noticed that as I thought it was on my laptop screen! This is the view around the corner from the summer room which leads to the dining room.

Hi Rick,

Interior - Nicely done, Lines are straight, verticals are vertical and as Gareth says, a great room to shoot.
Splendid

Life - Lovely expression captured there, and an imaculate looking garden (in keeping with your interior shot).

Free Week - Condolences to you and the family Rick, not something I could have done at my Mum's funeral, it can't have been easy. It's nice to have captured that final memory.

Closed - Ooh, I think the colour version for me, the colours of the rust just don't come across on the mono shot (odd that innit ;) ).

Wide - Nicely done. Good use of the 10mm and nicely controlled, there is no hint that I can see of distortion.

Dirty - Lol. My only comment on this is I may have tried to get a whiter background?

Drink - Plenty of options there, but I agree with your choice of the 1st one posted. I think it just beats teh one without the bottle as the blues contrast with the reds.

Full - Oh that my teenagers' rooms were as tidy as that...

Blimey that's one clean shiny interior. Well shot.

Our place is that clean and tidy after Mrs Oy has had one of her mad cleaning sprees. Briefly :)

Thanks Dave, it is a constant battle in our house, me and my little girl are very untidy, and my wife is a clean freak. It makes for an interesting dynamic...

Hi there Rick,

You've posted some fantastic images since I last looked in.
I love Dirty for the colour pop and for the fit to the theme.
My deepest sympathies to you and your family Rick. A lovely tribute.
Absolutely cracking image for Life. What a wonderful expression and perfectly captured.
Finally, two amazing images for Interior. That is a stunning place!

Thanks Lee,
I am very lucky to have such a great house, the thing I love about this challenge is that it is making me photograph things I would never have considered before. :)

Interior
Looks like a show home. Good exposure with all those white shiny stuff.
Thanks Dominic, I was wary about not using any form of flash, hence having to use a tripod to get things sharp. Though the second pic was handheld.

Very nice, crisp and colourful image that works very well due to it's simple composition.(y)
I like the grading/processing too, works well, gives it a nice punchy feel.
Nice to see that you have matching bins too!:giggle:
Thanks Gareth, I never thought I'd be processing pictures of wheelie bins! :D

Nice simple composition Rick!(y)
Love the smooth background blur too... perfectly emphasizes the subject.
Thanks Gareth, it was a quick grab as I am pretty stacked out this week. It does show the great qualities of the 90mm lens though :)
