Thanks Rick. I tried a black and white conversion but didn't like how it looks so went with the colour version. I convert most of shots to black and white as I normally prefer how they look

Week 5 Snappers Choice + Technique
I've never tried to shoot a silhouette before and it was nice to try. I'll definately think about using the technique in the future if the shot calls for it. I didn't want to make it too dark as I liked the texture of the bricks. It's a shame the wind wasn't blowing in a different direction but i waited a while and the direction arrow didn't move

I think you did a good job Craig with leaving enough light on the brickwork.

I've ticked off the technique, but it's not really a silhouette as you can see the detail in the brickwork.
You could probably pp it by crushing the blacks, but I can see from your commentary that it was a deliberate choice to retain the texture of the brickwork.
(I'm setting myself up for a massive fail now, as I haven't bothered with the technique yet ;) )

Fits the technique perfectly with the weather vane being just an outline with a featureless interior also makes a very good picture, nice first attempt at a silhouette.

Nice choice of subject for a sillhouette... I did the same and left some texture in the blacks.

I think the weather vane is enough in silhouette and I like that there's still detail in the bricks.

I've just had a look at the raw file Rick and a colour version wouldn't work as I'd under exposed the image to get the building darker. I can take another shot of it it you want to see it in colour as it's just outside my house

Week 6 Wild & Week 7 Broken
For Wild I wanted to get a shot of the bad weather we've been having and I wish I'd bought the camera cover I'd been looking at the other week so I could venture out in the rain and get a shot without damaging my camera. I had to make do with standing on my windowsill and taking the shot through the open window. I processed it in both colour and b&w and prefered how the b&w image looked, the colours of the cars drew the eye more than I liked.
I made use of the bad weather again for Broken. I couldn't resist getting a shot of this car surrounded by water. Its at my local golf driving range thats ony a couple of fields away from the river. I'm sure the car was fine before all the rain bar the dents from golf balls but I'm not sure how well it will have done stood in all that water.
Both shots were taken using my Sony Nex-5 with the Sony E 55-210 OSS lens.

Wild really does suit the B&W Craig, a good shot showing the grotty wild weather.
Broken does look like the car will now be broken with all the rain that got in to the car.

A good b&w, you can see how wet it is. I would like to have seen some movement in the trees.

A pretty good composition for Broken, I would have cropped the grass out, but I can understand why you have kept it in.

Wild - I agree the b/w suits it.
Broken - looks like they were playing car quidditch when they flooded the engine

Week 8 Ability
I stuggled thinking of something for this theme but on my way to pick my camera up after being repaired in Leeds today I saw this building and decided on Ability to stand out. Its a shame there were so many lamp posts in the way but there was only one that was right in front of the building but I stuggled to remove it so decided to leave it rather than spoil the image

That is indeed a remarkable building - I love the colours you've got in this!

The colours pop beautifully Craig, I hate it when I can`t get rid of lamp posts plus that is some interesting building too.

Thanks for the comments guys. I might have to take a closer look at this building when I'm next in Leeds. It was nice to have some blue sky to add more colour to the image, if it had been a cloudy day I might have gone for a b&w conversion when processing.
