Hi folks, I don't generally read or contribute to this part of the forum but wandered in on the offchance today and spotted Jose Luis' comment posted 1st November
Quote:
not sure if you could explore more the 3th capture

I worked my way through a box of matches chasing that third image. Images 1 and 2 in the sequence were easy enough, but the 3rd proved to be very elusive. I tried letting it burn down partially and then completely, but eventually settled on the shot I used because I liked the sinuous way the smoke was curling.

Anyway ... I'm pleased with the members' reponse and my thanks to anyone who cast their vote in my favour. SolarSanction seems to be secure in his lead however, so well done to him, a newcomer, for trouncing all us established characters. Especially since Bjorn set us such a fiendish task!!

It was what I missed.

I appreciate you very much, Mikeroch!

Gorndon, naniani, patti, thank you so much!

Thanks for everyone's support :)

As for the suggested theme: How about shadows!? Often we take pictures that completely ignore shadows and we focus on objects that are lit up. However, I think some of the most compelling pictures are shadows because of what the shadows suggest as a whole.

I think shadows is a great idea and will ignite some creative thought amongst the entries!

Again, thanks for everyone's support and comments

Oooo, I failed to realize how much of a challenge this could be considering the changing climate and weather conditions. I guess it's time to put on those creative caps on and finds ways to do this. Its up to us Photographers to find a way to make wonders!

Hm...Just wondering, what do you all think-- would silhouettes be considered shadows (like when underexposing a picture of the sky)?

I wouldn't consider silhouettes shadows, that'd result in tons of silhouettes being posted and far less true shadows, I guess...

oh, my baby Bjorn..I am thinking where there is absence of reflected light, there is shadow...and oh, I think a little fun is needed here..so's we don't all slip to the dark side of shadow..there are LOTS of kinds of shadows...and this is going to be a study in "negative space" Very fun!
For sure. Because we all know..things lurk in shadows..

I better shudup. I am scaring myself.

love,
p
