Last assignment pictures taken in Japan. I wish I'd remembered the primary colour assignment over there; now I've got a stack of red temples none of which were shot with these assignments in mind.

Anyway, here are two shots I did take for the assignment. They are of cryptomeria trees at the Okunoin cemetery. I hope the texture comes across.

@clk230: Nicely done, James. I would have preferred something else the subject, but it's a pass for texture. Cheers... Brian

@MacManus: Both nicely done, Christophe. I particularly like the second for the shallow DOF. That's a pass. Cheers... Brian

Sony a77, spiratone 500mm f/8, 1/125, ISO 400

I was just at the zoo trying out my 500mm mirror lens, and I keep a list of the assignments in my bag... when I saw the elephant, I knew it'd be perfect for texture

@UncleLimpy: Well spotted! 1/125 at 500mm is a feat, even with a tripod. It seems to be lacking some detail and contrast that might have improved the texture effect, but you get a pass.

Cheers... Brian

My first attempt at texture; I had taken some pictures of trees and walls but I didn't find them very interesting so hopefully these textures are strong enough! I wanted to get several different tactile elements in the one shot but not sure if they distract from each other.

@@Don't upset the gnome!

@Blue-Eyed Monkey: Glen, you must live near a gnome infestation!

For #1, while there is not a lot of texture in the subject the texture in the surroundings is enough for a pass.

For #2, the shells by themselves would have been more compelling a subject for this assignment. However the surrounding glass is too smooth to be applicable here.

So, you get a pass on #1!

Cheers... Brian

P.S. Only 2 assignments to go and you will be the 4th to complete them all!

My first two attempts:

Texture doesn't have to be rough:


A58, Tamron 16-300 @ 180mm, ISO 100, 1/320s, f6.3 Straight from camera apart from resizing.

Two contrasting textures:

A58, Tamron 16-300 @ 90mm, ISO 100, 1/320s, f9 Cropped one edge only.

This holiday has certainly had added interest thanks to these assignments.
