Hot off the Press for this week Dull.

Wk 39 Dull
by Peter, on Flickr

Dull brown leaves on a broken branch of a tree, just before it rained again.
Please check on Flickr as it (to Me) appears to be over exposed a bit on here, but is better on Flickr.
Perhaps I have my eyes set to auto ISO and exposure compensation set.

Not sure Pete. Even looking at flickr there is too much vibrancy in the leaves for this to fit Dull as a theme.
Hi Tim, I went for Dull as in "Not Shiny" Perhaps titled "Dry Dull Leaves" would have described them better.

Thanks for your comments.

It does appear better on flickr, looks a tad over shaprened, maybe lost something in upload.

A subject I didn't immediately connect with theme wise. I would consider getting in a bit closer concentrating on fewer leaves.
Dull
It looks a little busy, a bit closer, with some isolation, I feel would help.
I did try a closer crop, but I liked the bright blue sky contrasting with the dull leaves better.

You mean I beat Dave70D, however according to your definition it was not a shoehorn :), it's the nearest I have ever been to a Valcan and I took it and others for the theme as I just happened to be there;););)

Back from My Hols and Have the Snappers Choice and Near Images ready

I just love these. The reflection is perfect and the lighting for the Vulcan is just amazing.

I have another version looking straight onto the pool, but I feel its not such a pleasing Image.

For my Near I went to a an event at Wellsboure to take photos of a Avro Vulcan V Bomber XM655

I love both of these Pete :) The vibrancy and perfect reflections in your Snappers Choice shot are fantastic, it puts me i mind of of Pink Floyd album covers (thinking a cross between Wish you were here and Ummagumma).
The Vulcan though, just brilliant. Loving the lighting, the starbursts, the deep black and of course the bird herself (y)

I really like the Snapper's shot. Great reflection!!
Near - Cracking shot, too. Maybe the wing on the left is a touch too near the edge but …. hair-splitting really.

Near - that's a great picture, especially because its at night, & a great plane!
Shame we don't make them like that anymore, also the Harrier. Now we get the V35, which needs frequent reboots acording to the fighter pilot program on the telly a few weeks back, you could not make it up, it must use MS Windows on its computers.

Thanks Tim

I really like the Snapper's shot. Great reflection!!
And I was just laying there!

Yes, A bit close, but it was dark and impossible to see in the view finder and the liveview on the D800 is not the best.

What a cracker of a reflection shot. Bright, clean and perfect mirror-image.

I can't relate the bomber with the Near theme but nevertheless it's a great image and the dark background helps to focus attention on the plane itself.
I was near to the Vulcan, cant say more than that.
Absolutely stunning images Pete!:clap:

Snappers Choice: Wow! Great reflections and colours...amazing!
Near: Is it a shoehorn? I would say you are pretty near to that spectacular aircraft, so it's fine by me! ;)
Superbly shot image, great lighting with excellent details! Faultless!
Thanks for your Kind words Gareth.

Super shot Pete!(y)
Great balance of colours, and a strong composition...not too shabby at all for a quick snap!
Thank you Gareth again.

Hi Pete,
I like the shot for dull but echo so other comments regarding the colour.
Free - A nice vibrant shot of what looks like a very nice place.
Near - I love the Vulcan. This a great shot for me. Night really makes it.
Song - I've not heard that one which is surprising looking at who has recorded it. Nice shot with perfect autumnal colour.

The book is delibery the wrong way up to show its not mine and the cup of tea is on line of thirds.
It was a quick shot as both myself and the wife have the flu and I could not be arsed to do mote to be honest.
