Sorry to hear you're having a rough time with BT. I hope you get it sorted soon.

Great shot for the theme. I like the little touch of the red key line too. It really finishes it off.

Good interpretation of the theme. Sure your will power will stand the test of time. best month to do this as there are only 28 days and you will be more than half way through it now. Keep going and look forward to eating them in March. Please save me the one with white chocolate on it looks scrummy.

I like the way you've made that fit the theme, Susie, and well done on your restraint in the face of broadband troubles! Hope it's sorted soon and I bet those chocs will taste wonderful on the 1st :D

Well done on resisting the chocolates, it's hard to give up something you love but you're doing it for a good cause (y) The image definitely fit's the theme of waiting, as I'd be counting down the minutes!

Hi Susie, nice image for the theme. If I had opened the box it would have been game over!
Waiting
You have more willpower than me, I can't think of a life without a bit of chocolate.
Wish you all the best on waiting there is no way I could.
That works really well Susie (as does your willpower seemingly :) )
I like the strong colours and the fact you've not given into shallow DoF.
I also think the red border really adds the finishing touch to the shot.

Thank you so much everyone for all those lovely comments ...I'm really sorry my comments have been lacking but BT promised me a connection today, and now they've reneged again!!!! My O2 hotspot really is not good but I'll try my absolute best to catch up this week.

I've stuck it out with my Dechox :) I shall definitely be into those Thorntons chocolates tomorrow.

I don't want to get too far behind so I'm hoping to manage to get these two on.

Rough ....We have a lot of Echium growing here in Cornwall, the leaves are covered in a rough spines, hopefully this macro shows them off well.

Two great images from you Susie!(y)

Rough: Amazing detail here....I love the texture on the leaf beneath the spines, and those little brown bits....they're fascinating!
Fantastic macro image, sharpness where it counts, OOF where it matters! Super!

Object: He looks well loved! I really like the framing and the black background....those nice colours really leap out.
Great details and a wonderful image of a clearly cherished object....seems almost insulting to call him an object!!:giggle:

Two good shots Susie, liking the macro and yes it is showing rough spines nicely.
Object Ted is a very nice shot, all the wear and tear of Ted shows how much he`s been loved.
Thanks Dave, I was pleased to be able to keep up, I hate falling too far behind.

Thank you Gareth, Ted is one item I’ve kept for a very long time!

Rough, great details and depth of field with the angle leads the eye well.
Object, great lighting catching the eyes and a lovely colour to the fur.
Great shots!
Thank you ....very much appreciated :)

Hi Susie,

Rough - Plenty of detail in that shot, I think it achieves what you set out to.

Object - That's a lovely old teddy. the warm lighting is set off really well by the black background and your choice of frame. (y)
Thanks Tim, Ted does look a bit careworn so I gave him a bit of a facelift with the lighting :)

Thanks Allan, I looked the book up on Amazon and bought I copy, I have quite a few bears ...I really like them :)

Good catch up. Like the macro very much and poor old Ted!! I had one of these which survived my childhood but not my daughter's!!
Thank you Bob...using Macro is definitely one of my favourites.

Two excellent photos Susie. The macro really does show lots of fine rough detail. What's not to love about Ted. Nicely lit. It feels very warm and snuggly :)
Thank you Lee ... I do think bears are timeless treasures.

Hi Susie,

Big catch up on commenting. I have been very slack :(

Distant - Lovely sharp shot and very nice colours, might have worked in B&W too.
Cold - Love how the snow is balancing on the very slim twig and the pop of red makes it for me
Waiting - Well done you, hope you made it to the end of the month!
Rough - The macro worked well they certainly look rough.
Object - Lovely ted. I like the orange frame and the writing to match, nice black bg, only thought is that his ears are a little close to the top
Wet - Nice idea. nice colours in the bubble and good reflection too

:D

Open, plenty of colourful fruit and on theme, I would never of thought of that.

Distant, good shoehorn, love the details in the image against the oof background.

Cold, so very good, I like the striking red against the black and white, again oof background is ace.


Waiting, never heard of that before, focus is spot on the chocolates.

Rough, Theme is clear on this image and a better macro shot Than I have managed yet.

Object, Ted is nice, I had one like that but he wandered off decades ago.

Wet, clever image, love the rainbow in the bubble.

Hi Susie, just catching up again and you've posted three really good images since my last visit; the close-up details in your Rough image definitely convey the theme with those spiky details, the teddy in Object is lovely and made me smile as I have one just like him, and the bubble for Wet is not just an excellent idea but you've captured it very well with those fab rainbow colours and the reflection on the surface. That's something I want to try in future.

What a superb image Susie!
The bands of colour are terrific and the composition is excellent!
A very compelling image, I like the curved shadow area inside the bubble - perfectly mirrors the curved shape of the bubble....clever!
Marvellous!(y)
Thank you Gareth ...super encouraging as always :)

Thank you Georgina for that marathon catch up, yes, Teds ears are very tight to the top but I'd messed about a lot and sometimes you just have to say ...I'll take what I've got. Much appreciate your comments.

I like the inclusion of the reflection along with that nice bit of colour.
Hi Michael, thank you for looking in.

Love your shot for Wet Susie. A really interesting image that's perfect for the theme and very creative.
Thank you Lee.

Very nice indeed. Good idea for the theme.
Thanks Bob.

Hi Andrea ...bubbles are great fun ...I tried doing a frozen bubble this week but failed miserably!
