@Blue-Eyed Monkey: Welcome to Dyxum, Glen! While the subject did not need a lot of help in this instance, it was placed at the upper-left ROT intersection. That's a pass.

Cheers... Brian

Also welcome to Dyxum Blue-Eyed Monkey, nice shot/colours, and the placement of the pillar as well as the horizon help to emphasise the ROT based composition.

I think you only need to clean your sensor, there's a few dust bunnies that can be seen in the sky (near the horizon).

I'll consider myself told

@mark: I'm glad you're taking the plunge

Adding ROT lines to your image, you have put the red leaf in about the right spot. However, you note that you did come cropping. The rules allow for cropping in only one direction. Can you confirm that this was the case?

Thanks... Brian

P.S. It's not so critical for this assignment, but the photo is OOF. Unless you were using a tripod, this is likely motion blur as the shutter speed was 1/8 sec.

i cropped some off the top. width was left untouched. i resized the image per the rules for posting on Dyxum. no tripod, so it's motion blur. i'll make a mental note to either try to stand still for longer exposure times or use a tripod.

should i cropped off more from the top to move the intersection more to the center of the leaf.

@mark: Taking any more off the top would have resulted in a rather odd aspect ratio for this subject. I think it's fine the way it is (and a pass on the assignment).

It's nearly impossible for anyone to avoid motion blur at 1/8 sec without a support of some kind (tripod, fence rail, tree trunk, etc.). Lowering the f-stop and/or increasing the ISO would give you a faster shutter speed in these situations.

Cheers... Brian

Taken today (21 Apr 2018) for this assignment.
EXIF data should be there - in case it isn't: Sony SLT A58, Tamron 16-300mm @24mm; ISO 100; 1/200s f5.6. No cropping.

And another, taken 26 March - before I'd come across these assignments. Cropped on the right edge only. It was a small change but does make a difference.

Exif: Sony SLT A58,Minolta 70-210f4 @75mm; ISO 100; 1/400s, f6.3.

@Phil Wood: Welcome to the assignments, Phil! Can you please confirm:
1) whether you were going for ROT or golden mean on #1, and
2) whether #2 was cropped in only one direction?

Thanks... Brian

Hi Brian - thanks for the rapid response.

I was aiming at ROT on #1, #2 was cropped in only one direction (right edge).

Phil

@Phil Wood: #1 seems to focus on the bulls eye:


It might have been better to focus on the plane as a whole.

#2 puts the sign at the ROT intersection


it is a rather obscure part of the image, but you get a pass for pointing it out.

Cheers... Brian

Over here we call it a roundel though Luftwaffe pilots may have seen it as a bulls-eye in 1940.

I'll have to check the place out next time I'm in the area.
