Nice Halloween picture, the black background suits it well
Thanks Mark,

I had a struggle to get the black BG with the amount of ambient light, but it was worth the faffing about :)

Yes
Spooky
Great shots and she doesn't look too displeased. For me the second is slightly better with the toned down lighting.

Number 2 for me as well with the brightness dialled down a bit. Lovely image of a lovely little girl.

I like Borrowed. Good shot with a good narrative behind it. Did they take you for a spin in it too? :)

Spooky - Second shot is lovely. Nice lighting and colour.
Thanks Lee, comments much appreciated. Unfortunately there are no engines on the aircraft :)

I really like this one, the DoF and focus are spot on, plus the object in the background really works well.
Thanks Jim, just a simple shot, but `i was running out of time so thought I'd have a go at this :)

Excellent shot Rick!(y)

Nice framing and composition, and the mono works too.
Say...are they those plastic ice cubes? (I have a load of those too)
Or did you succeed in getting real, clear ice cubes?
I have tried to get perfectly clear ice cubes, but it's next to impossible!:LOL:
Thanks Gareth, I have to admit, they are plastic :)

Good choice for the theme it never crossed my mind :banghead:
I like how the object behind the glass kind of echoes the shape of the glass, nice DoF too

Great work Rick!:clap:

The first image is excellent, with well balanced colours and a strong composition.
Your later B&W images are really superb...especially the last one - this is my favourite!
The composition is top notch, and the road is very well placed.
Thanks Gareth,

Those comments are much appreciated as always :)

I'm a little late with my "far" image as we have been snowed under with continued flooding at work. I will be catching up with that, and the new theme very soon all being well.

Watch this space

It's going to have to be a shoehorn for 'far' I'm afraid, I had plans to get out later and shoot something I wanted, but those plans have been scuppered now :(

I have something better planned for this week's theme though :)

It was 'far' too cold to be in the back garden in my slippers... :whistle:

That`s a good effort, but I think you might know that the shutter speed might of been a bit to low.
I agree, I just grabbed the camera off the side and basically switched to F11 without checking anything else, I had plenty of attitude in the ISO but didn't even look. Not making excuses (well actually I am) but I was trying to stop Natiya walking barefoot into the garden behind me and not waking her mum up) The 10-24 would have also been a better lens for this I think, but it was upstairs in my bag, with the T3 and H1. :)

You need a 16mm f1.4 :D
