Day 8 onsplekkie - chrome and ...ornaments? Gotta love this! I had to look up the car, of course. And I keep being puzzled how long a vehicle that was meant to transport no more than two people can be (while there are rear seats, the legroom indicates that if you sit there you're at best a distraction of the folks in the front). Still, I wouldn't mind a little joy ride in one of these (sitting in front, of course). With regard to the picture, I think that the pavement in the front doesn't add anything. I'd try and do a crop in 2:3 or so.

Only 1:1 crop in my challange

day 10 onsplekkie - Great title! As to the crabs: thanks, but no thanks.

I think exactly the same when I pass them on my weekly market trip

day 11 onsplekkie - There's something slightly turbulent going on in the sharp flower and the others of the same twig (CAs do certainly add to that impression). The flowers in the far background are very smooth though and overall it's a well executed flower picture in my view.

Used a very cheap 2x teleconverter + 3 extentiontubes on my Takumar 2.4/135 wide open for this pic, this might explain the tubulence

day 12 onsplekkie - Gotta love those colours; very vintage. An unusual point of view that works extremely well.

That's why I love the Dyxum challanges, it pushes me to be creative in points of view or other ways

day 14 onsplekkie - I like the warm colour tone and of course it is a funny picutre. To whom belonged the beer can on the leftmost post?

If I tell you it did not belong to the girl




     

Thnx for all you're comments, much appreciated!

Fred_S - A great choice, that title. Is the isolation from the background purely a result of the lens or did you help a bit in post processing? Either way (I guess so, since it seems brighter than its immediate surroundings), a picture with impact.



It is all from the lens. I didn't do too much in PP (LR), [...]
Impressive lens!

I hear you. Overall I'm happy with my choice, though. I like the square format per se, plus I don't have to ponder whether I should photograph a subject in portrait or landscape orientation

I must say that I'm not overly surprised

Day 11:
nadk - I like such style of shots (BTW, are you sure it's decoration, not the weather rock?).

Thank you for your comment. I am glad that you like it. Regarding if it is a weather rock I am quite sure it isnít. My wife and son made it to warn people against the corner of the roof on our summer house.

alpha_in_exile - The white balance seems a tad too cold for my taste, but the focus is spot on and the second flower in the back is a nice touch.


Thank you - that's an excellent observation about the WB, and I think you are right, it is too cold.
