Nicely wide. Sky is gone a bit but still works well.

Dirty
I like the first one the most, the flower contrasts (in it's beauty) against the dirty gloves.

Wide
I like the shapes and the what the wide angle lens has added to the photo.

Closed
Good reflection and I like the white background. Three books works better than if there was only one.

Waited all week to see if I could think up anything different but couldn't so books it were! Perhaps I don't get out enough!

Hi Joan,

That's a great shot for a wide. The wide lens really emphasises the curves and lines. :clap:

Closed is a simple idea and executed really very well. Great lighting, detail and reflection. (y)

I love that 'silly-o'clock' light!:giggle:
Being as I'm not a 'silly-o'clock' kind of person, I'm rarely up at this time, which I regret.:sorry:
You've captured a really fantastic image Joan, with great colours and a nice composition of a subject, which in lesser hands would have been rather mundane, but you've elevated it very nicely into a pleasing and memorable image!:clap:

WEEK 31 - LIFE

Started off a lovely day and half way through the race card, the heavens opened and within half an hour the park was awash. Early bath for me!

Hi Joan

What's the story with the oil tanks, you say it was not what you where after and the sun is well past sunrise, was there too much cloud earlier, or where you late and did not get to where you wanted to be.
Other wise the lead in lines of the tracks work well heading towards the sun, which is nicely difussed by the clouds and is giving a nice colour to the sky. field to the right is reflectin the colour in the sky well.

The predawn image is nice, but with (I think) too much sky, try cutting it down so the lights and reflections are central (letterbox it).

Life, it is hard at times. Not really sure what you are trying to show, the denched chap walking?, what sort of racing was going on as there is nothing to give us a clue. Some jumps or railings may have helped here.

The shadow top right is the rain. It was a monsoon and all that water fell in half an hour. It was at the whippet racing. I did photoshop some whippets swimming in the water with ducks and a beach ball just for a laugh for the club!!

Week 32 - INTERIOR (of a clematis bud)
Week 32-INTERIOR.jpg

Did this one quite quickly this afternoon and the light wasn't quite right. Am going to try again tomorrow if I have time. Was originally going to try and present it like a botanical print but didn't have time to faff.

I do agree Dave. I don’t normally do ‘frames’ but I find one of the beauties of this challenge is just trying out different stuff!!

Hi Joan,
Nice, rich colours in your snappers choice shot.
The British way of life is rain in summer :) That does look like a heck of a lot of rain came down!
Your first shot is an absolute beauty for Interior. Very well done Joan.

Well you've beaten me to it. That's the idea I had in my head (although I was going to use a rose bud). As the saying goes 'you snooze, you lose :ROFLMAO:
I would maybe have flipped the image, so that the flower stem is on the left, to help lead the eye in to the frame. Good subtle colours and light.

Two nice flower pix. I like the 2nd best. I think the bud needs more dof to work well.

Nice take on the theme. I use very little cash these days. It's either the card or my phone.
