I have extra comment on those pics by Blue-Eyed Monkey: there is some ugly (sensor dust?) spots in the sky, the most offending pair is above the second highest spire. I know that does not really affect this assignment, but catches one's eye quite easily...

I've just looked up how to clean the sensor - was hoping the spots were on the lens but it's all a learning curve so here goes!

Second attempt at silhouette:



Sony A58, Tamron 16-300mm @ 130mm. ISO 100, 1/500s @ f10. Straight from camera apart from resizing.

I suspect it will fail the lack of detail test - but I like it anyway.

@Phil Wood: #1 is a clear pass and a much more interesting subject IMHO. Cheers... Brian

Thanks Brian, I wasn't so sure about the composition/framing of the first one (I was remembering the 'perfectly executed' bit). I agree that it's a great subject, so I went back for another shot.



Sony A58, Tamron 16-300mm @ 60mm. ISO 100, 1/2500s @ f10. Straight from camera apart from resizing.

And so on to fill-in flash - should be interesting, I have no idea what to go for as yet (and only the on-camera flash with me on my holiday).

Phil

I didn't see in the rules that these had to be done in order.
I was looking for a solution for NEW Basic Assignment #2: Leading lines but found this instead.

Excellent. I think I found some lines that lead somewhere.

My shape/outline-try (1) Garlic.



I had to crop it to a square, because my backlight wasn't big enough.

If not a pass, then my other try: Rooster on the roof.



Did they pass?

@Harm vb: We generally accept one image at a time, but you had rightly considered that the first might not be a pass.

The assignment,
Take a picture that accentuates the outline of a person or object, try to create an extra impact by making the shot idealistic, simplistic and perfectly executed.


Back-light does not add impact to the garlic. However with the brooding sky behind him, the rooster, whether a lightening rod or weather vane, clearly has something to look forward to.

That's a pass.

Cheers... Brian
