This week's challenge entry is above, and the alternates below. We were on the quest of "line" this week, and they are everywhere... there were tracks in the snow, bare limbs, powerlines where they shouldn't be and so much more outside... but it was COLD and dangerous walking out there, so I took most of my photos inside. Including this one of Kettu's ear as she (smartly) basked in the morning sunshine! See the captions for more info about the others .
One of the great things about this group - well actually two things - is that it makes you actually take photos whether you feel like it or not, and it makes you see and notice! This challenge was about composition. How to compose a photo using two rectangles to form the composition. Here are the ones I took. The first is the submitted one.
Where to put your focus! Isn't that the number one problem we all have with life... too many choices and responsibilities. It is the same for photography. You can sit it the same place and focus on so many different things - even without moving your eyes- just your focus. So this week we worked on "Selective focus". Picking one very specific area of focus, and using our f-stops and shutter speeds to help accent that view. Here is my submission:
Here are three additional ones I took:
I am involved with a group, offered by Ricky Tims, that recieves a different photo "challenge" each week. For the group we edit down to posting only one photo a week, but sometimes I like my "out takes" as well, so this blog will tell you of my adventure, and show you the results.
