Loving the rainbow effect. How did you achieve it?
This was organised at a practical for our camera club. Put the forks ( or anything) on a polarised light source. Use a polarising filter on your lens. We used an old ( non led) screen. But you could use a light box, and put a polarising sheet on it. It was very interesting. I’m not very technical so I had to ask the guy who did it!

Like the tight crop and the DOF you have used.

First off the mark this week, and a good shot too. Can`t beat a nice bit of rust.

I too like a bit of rust. A pretty good composition, but I'd like to see a little more space above. I do like the more modern looking wheels, mixed in with the older stuff.

Nice discarded shot. It's all about that big X

I really like the big old rusty wheels.
But like Tim, no so keen on the more modern pushchair wheels
Fits the theme nicely though

Tools - very colourful, and clever.
Discarded - Great find for the theme, the pushchair wheel to indicate the size of the larger ones.

That's a super idea and subject for Tools, Yvette, and thanks for explaining how it was created. I'd love to try that at our club!

Rust is always a good colour and texture in photographs so the big wheels are a bit hit for me , and I like the contrast of the smaller wheels on the abandoned pushchair. Well done spotting that scene and getting it posted so quickly!; I'm still thinking

Right on theme. Nicely composed and good dof. Not sure if I find the puddle slightly distracting but then it's framed by the wheel.

Hi Yvette,
Quite a few discarded items there by the looks of it, love the texture in the rust.

It's lovely. The exposure is spot on, the pose is good too. My only little gripe is, I'd like to see the horses eye, they are very expressive.

An interesting choice of angle, I’m also taking the regimented straight on approach, maybe I need to investigate alternative options.

I have seen some great people shots over the years in the 52, and this is another one. Beautifully taken with great lighting and pose, bang on and a cracker.

I`ll put this in so you can have a look at How to on the LINKY.

The gorilla is wild for sure, and a great shot too.
Thanks, again!

This gorilla was a member of the Hirwa family group in Rwanda, they drifted over the mountains into DRC, and Uganda. This group is the one on the news yesterday, where four of them were apparently struck by lightening and killed. It is so very sad. Magnificent creatures.

Yes I read on the News about 4 of them being killed by lightening, very sad indeed.
