Day 14 comments
pegelli - I'm a sucker for industrial heritage. I like the symmetric composition and the texture of the rivets.
maewpa - The pink umbrella really helps anchor the whole image. What a great fun shot
stresskiller - Very moody scene created by the grainy, low key tones. Very evocative.

darosa - The glowing illumination coming from the left and sense of extreme grunge create an image with heaps of character. Also a fan of the frame-within-a-frame composition.


Thanks for your comment Greg, glad you like it!

darosa Great how the shadow lines are following the architecture (or the other way around). Add to that the right-left/shadow-light and a skilled person that noticed this all and you have another good shot of what others wouldn't consider as subject.


Thanks Domien! The shadows of winter and spring are such gorgeous photographic presents!

Day 4

cschubert - Dawn, still water, pagodas: The right ingrediants for a mistyc picture. Well done.

gregja - Your pictures are usually very punchy. While I don't feel that this kind of post processing is always a good match for your subjects, I think it is in this case. Only criticisms are the colour noise (visible in the background, I'm surprised this happened with this camera at the chosen ISO value) and the long post to the right leaning a bit to the right. I guess you had to tilt the camera slightly to keep the white fence or what it is parallel to the bottom edge.

Fred_S - Gotta love this! The colour version in the outtakes too, by the way. Good composition, good technique .

Darosa - Good capture of leading lines and a suitable contrasty black and white conversion.

rovhazman - Again a good portrait of a child. I wouldn't be surprised if it worked well in combination with the previous portrait in blue tones.

skm.sa100 - Well spotted and well converted to a striking black and white picture. If presented outside of this challenge I would crop the right edge ever so slightly to make it 100% symmetrical.

onsplekkie - I like the composition, the panorama format, the scenery, even the cloudy sky. The only thing that I don't like is the subdued atmosphere that was probably created during post processing. This is too much of a good thing, in my opinion.

ffrolvaag - Love the subtle and black and white convesion. Is this a result of the way the camera captured the image or is it a result of your post processing? This is, along with the watering pot from Fred_S, my favourite of the day.

    Some Day 10 comments.

    Gregja. Good B/W timber yard impression. I like the shot with the fading blocks in the background

    Pegelli Nothing beats fresh barbed wire on mossy tree stumps.
    It's great when one sees a photographic subject in mundane things.

    cschubert Great lines, ending in the corners, beautiful blues, a fine building.

    Mikey2000 It's not only the opportunity but also the eye that sees it. And the fact that you a camera with you at work.

    bigsi Great tulips. Nothing wrong with a colorful shot.

    ktrucke Amazing to see what you can get with a 30mm Macro. Love the dandelion (I presume)

    MiPr You have a good hand for portraits. Somehow your subjects look at ease with you photographing them. As oposed to me where they look terrified.

    Wilu Except for the disctracting white border I love colors and subject

    skm.sa100 My shot of the day. Lovely light, curved background. The 8mm shines in landscape shots.

    rovhazman The black border, together with black division of the window, makes it look as a quadplet (is that a word?). That's the first impression and you start comparing the 4 shots until you notice you're dealing with a window

    addy Landzaat I love to see those lost-and-found things. I have so many photos of shoes and gloves. This one is good too

    Snegren - Continuing in the same manner. This is even better than the first. Not just some kind of funky bokeh, but a real addition to this picture. In order to achieve this, the subject had to be placed very carefully (or was it just luck ). Perfect.


    It took some effort to find the right distance to subject and angle, but I think I understand the workings of this little lens pretty well and that helps.

    I'm going to try to write some comments on the first week as a start (days 1-3).

    Day1:
    Gregja - i know the Pentacon is a bokeh king and this picture is a demo of that fact.
    LAbernethy - it's a well done image with the 50mm macro
    Fred S. - you make the eggs soft boiled with the Trioplan
    bigsy - the fog isn't stopping you and the ducks, also a nice picture to look at.
    Mipr - as expected a nice picture with the nex6 - and 100macro (manual?)
    Mickey2000 - the white wabbit missed some carrots, or did you feed it Prunes?
    Dopol - many of us think this is the picture of day1 - beautifuL stork-image.
    ffrolvaag - the RD175 challenge is April fools at the max. And we see some stark images during this first week.

    Day2:
    Mipr: Red Riding hood should ask why the animal has so many eyes don't you think?
    Mickey2000: this 70 is the work of a genius (well maybe i'm watching too many cartoons). Lots of other nice 70's too on that day.
    Stresskiller: the most humoristic picture of the day is the m&m-cat.
    bigsi: we know there's a lot of fog in the UK - and it doesn't seem to bother you - while i was rather unhappy about the not-so-ideal whether at my place.

    Day3:
    Snogren: the b&w crucifix does it for me.
    CSchubert: sunset play into the building is a nice change between the others - and well done too.
    bigsy: the light show isn't something one can avoid to look at - and to write about.
    Stresskiller: Is that cat alive? (nice animal) and a nice start of a series.
    ffrolvaag: the spoon here is the surprise picture of the day.

    some comments on the first week (days 4-7).

    Day4:
    Snegren: the Mayhem is a successfull one too
    Gregja: the Goalpost is a different view - but one that caught my eye.
    Dopol: i see competition against the farmland - and it'll be a hairy battle indeed.
    Rovhazman: The light doesn't co-operate in this image when we forget this - it's very well done. And with kids in the play-yard they decide not the photographer (and we're not strong enough to move the toys either). A nice one.
    Onsplekkie: I'm missing the steaming jaccuzzi in that harbour (you'll have to use google to find my picture about that one).
    Wilu: nice contrast between the colors

    Day5:
    LAbernethy: thinking...
    Mickey2000: you froze the action (and it won't be the last time i assume)
    MariusZlo: nice tints of yellow/orange in the flowers
    Alpha_in_exile: my grandmother also had such a yale lock at home - and the Yale is nicely sharp
    Wilu: the light give it something special - it creates some kind of pattern.
    Maewpa: big risk you took there, funny, B&W does work out here.

    Day6:
    Onsplekkie: We where waiting for that kind of portrait
    cschubert: 7 tints of applegreen-blue - this color does it.
    Alpha_in_exile: i'm thinking of a happy bird at the end of the month
    Wilu: a bubble fiesta indeed.
    Maewpa: i thought you lived in Spain/Texas for a second.

    Day7:
    LAbernethy: 99 tints of brown - on of your best pictures i've seen on the first week (and we hope others may follow) - i like this one.
    CSchubert: another one that cought my eye.
    Darosa: so much structures into a tram stop - amazing.
    Bigsy: the Hurlers is a great picture, i enjoyed it.
    Mickey2000: he's dreaming of recreating Frozen on Dyxum - that's for sure.

    If you allow me I will catch up a bit for last week by posting some shots from that weekend and some a couple of shots I managed to take and PP this weekend for the Day Prime challenge. Situation with mother in law still difficult. It is all taking a bit longer than we all expected but still likely to come to an end in the near future.
