Above - Worth the wait for the sky imo. Nicely controlled perspective, that can't have been easy to shot this well.
Hot - Or perhaps Hot Favourite (which was the wordplay that sprung to my mind on seeing the picture). Well captured. Must have needed quite a fast shutter.
Light - What a riot of colours. I really like this because of hte vivid colours. Not sure why you're not happy with it, I would be.
Crowd(ed) - it works as 'street' as you have at elast one face pointing roughly in your direction
Decay - I think this is the stand out shot of my catch-up. Love the detail, great use of DoF, and effort put into the shot spending time to create the prop.
Fab macro image Joan!
I like the DoF....just enough to show some super sharp details in what's left of that strawberry.
And I also like the crackle effect image too, spot on and both are a perfect fit for the theme!
no - it is amazing how quickly strawberries will go mouldy - they were bought on the Tuesday, two taken out of the fridge on the Friday and put on the worktop- so less than a week to totally go mouldy!
Great image Joan!
Perfect sharpness and lovely colours and details.
I like how you captured the nearest one fully airbourne!
The blue and red 'jackets' have created a nice colourful splash....very nice!
Decay - both good shots but the second one works best for me. It looks really depressing and spot on for theme and the background enhances it nicely
Free week - love the whippets. You appear to have nailed those perfectly. Looks very sharp and action packed. I was at a Country Fair 2 weeks ago and tried getting some action shots of lurcher racing - I took well over a 100 images and had about 3 keepers so you did great there
4 images stitched together from today's outing. Went especially to see the rhodies but not many there. And forgot my polariser. But lunch more than made up for it in the café there!
It's quite a small garden in the throes of restoration from being badly vandalised in the sixties.
Just playing a bit of catch up. You've taken some cracking shots.
Light is lovely with really vivid colours without being too sturated.
The second shot for decay is great. That crackle effect is very good too.
The pano of the Japanese Garden is really good. The stitching has worked really well and the exposure is nicely balanced across the images.
Great images Joan! Fragile: Sometimes a good old panic brings out the best in us! It certainly did here I would say.
It's inventive and well composed, and your choice to shoot right on the floor is perfect for the subject.
With great lighting and a nice black background, I'm hugely impressed! Squash(ed): Wow! I'm not quite sure what I'm looking at here, but I can say that it's an amazing image which I can't stop looking at!
It's fascinating, surreal and tremendous, and I'm sure I don't need to ask whether the little moggy was harmed in the process of taking this photograph?!
Fantastic work Joan!
This is the kitten from Week 1. He has grown a lot! Took all of 10 mins to get the shot with the camera on a tripod and remote release and me holding a toy above his head. My photoshop abilities could be better I think.
No cats were harmed in the taking of this image!
