Welcome to the forum :wave: this is a great place to lean all about your camera and the 52 will push you to think about what your pointing the camera at it's a great way to develop your skills (y)

Best of luck in your challenge

Like Matt says, there are some great people on here who'll go the extra mile to give yu help and info. There are some interesting debates and a few heated discussions, but on the whole it's all about learning and sharing our passion for taking better images.

I like the dovestonemono1 shot on your flickr (y)

Hiya Dan,

Good on you for taking the bull by the horns and tackling this challenge.

I did it all this year .... it is hard work, you start off a lightning speed, but believe me as the year progresses, especially the summer months, it gets very trying and at the end it is like running a 10000 meter .... where you can see the end in sight, but you just have to put that last bit of umph in and hopefully end on a high note with a fantastic finale.

Good luck to you and I will pop past to provide encouragement where I can.

All the best for the new year and the new challenge.

Us 2011 52'ers will be here to support you (y)

Cheers

Dawn :)

Thanks for your comments and encouragement. Looks like we are from the same neck of the woods Simon. The pic on Flickr is Portland basin.
Will be making a start on the first theme this weekend.

I have to say great idea as that's close to what I've taken. I like the orienteering theme you've used. Is that why there's water (raindrops?) in the shot? - Does it always rain when you are doing it?

I did have a couple of ideas for outdoor shots but the weather has been terrible here since the theme was annouced.
So i decided to do an indoor shot adding water (raindrops) to go with the weather at present.

A good interpretation and making the compass match the map direction is a nice touch. The colours and the complexity of the map perhaps just overpower the shot a little and make the compass aspect harder to view. Good start though and look forward to seeing more :)

Great start, I really like the colours and the added water droplets. If anything all of contour lines jumbled up with the compass detract from giving the compass definition. Saying that though the detailing of the compass and map pointing north is a really nice touch. (y)

Dan, a good start to the 52... I like it, but find the complexity of the map to overpower the compass somewhat. A good idea to line them all up together, and the water drops add to it.

Like this, the colours are great and the water drops add to the image, i think i agree with the OP though and the compass to me does get a little lost in the vibrancy of the map
