Quite right. Which is why thomasrichards sub is in pole position for me at the moment. Great shot with even better PP.

Thanks Orsan. I quite like yours too. Having the two subjects so far on the edges creates a lot of tension to the center of the image, as if they're about to pop out of the ground and engage in a cat-and-mouse chase :lol:

@ zorro. I cant thank you enough for the link to Color Efex Pro3. I love it. I'm messing around mostly with the 'glamour glow' filter and its making the portraits so much better :D

Thanks, the story behind mine is that the tree is in fear, its looking onto a telegraph pole that once was a tree.

Mikeroch, that's some great image you posted. Nice :D !

SnS, though your picture look great (I love the sky), for me it's not minimal enough. A complete blue sky with just one cloud would be great, but this contains too many elements to fit the theme, especially because of the sky.
Nice photo though!

This one is the hardest one for me so far... Anyone else having trouble with getting ideas? My mind doesn't do minimal... every time I come close, I keep adding more to it XD

if I ever in a million years win one of these on Assignments, lutonmatt, my theme is going to be "water" I figure we could get anything from sweaty brows, to quacks, to thunder clouds, oceans, rivers, droplets, waterfalls...oh that is gonna be my pick...and when YOU win, what would you choose?

Hello everyone,

I submitted a picture of a dandelion as my answer to this month's assignment.

I failed to notice that Gordon was asking one sentence or two about the photo and particular difficulties I had encountered, so here they are:

I find the lonely dandelion in the park just as beautiful as many other things in life if you pay close attention to them. The hardest thing for me was that I had to get pretty close to it and to manual focus in the VF, but finally the patience paid off.

Best Regards,
Tony
