alanfrombangor Day 1. This photo is so good that I suspect that you threw this dog yourself :)

Probably posed by the recycling centre staff, they have a good sense of humour.

Fred_S Day 2. Calmness, beautiful colors, nature. It's a shame you have to go to work later.


Thanks Marius. I like my work, but days like these during Week 50, I can look forward to my retirement

mikey2000: I like these colourful trees. Are these decorations all in your neighbourhood?


That's it! Thanks all for participating, organising and commenting!


Fred, thanks for looking at my pics. I feel a little/large bit bad that I haven't made enough effort in commenting lately.

To answer the question though... These decorations are not in my normal neighbourhood but I was lucky enough to book a family long weekend at our nearest center parcs. it was a bit pricey but worth every penny and I'd highly recommend it to anyone with kids aged 5-15. Truly unforgettable at this time of year.

Some comments on Day 3
Phil Wood - clever composition to get these reflections and the blue/white lettering complements in the warm interior lights

Half way through, time for some comments on photos that caught my eye, days 1 to 3.
Day 2:
@Phil Wood - this night shot tells a story, empty and and looking rather sad after closing with all the chairs up-ended on the table tops.

I'm running behind in commenting - so we'll try to make up for that.
@Phil Wood: lots of buildings and construction - and being that different. That's also a great variation.

Moving on to the day 2 images that caught my eye...
Day 3
Phil Wood : Well spotted, another image made by opposing diagonals.

First: Thanks for the positive feedback.
DAY 3
Phil Wood: I like how the diagonals intersect - and as they are made of colored letters they also create a fascinating contrast in this beautiful night shot.

Continuing with short comments on Day 5
Phil Wood: A lovely street scene!

Continuing on with the rest of the week from Joe's selective comments on Days 1 to 3, here are some comments on Days 4 to 7 images that jumped out at me.

Day 4:
@Phil Wood - nice to see this impressionistic camera movement image.

Day 5:
@Phil Wood - appealing image with the reflected sunlight gleaming off the windows and back-lighting the street scene.

comments on my personal favs this Week50
Phil Wood- day 3 I love reflections, the darkness&light is a good combination

Phil Wood Day 5. Very nice classic buildings in great light.


Thanks for all the comments guys - much appreciated.

A few comments seem to call for responses:

I'll start commenting from Day 4
Phil Wood: I was thinking about this ICM technique as well in week 50, but decided to try it later. Well executed! Did you do this before?
nandbytes: A good abstract. Still don't know what I am looking at.


I have been enjoying Dena's recent postings of ICM images, but this was more desperation than anything - a handheld shot was going to be shaky whatever I did, but I thought it might work - and it sort of almost did. The 'view' is of an office building (Vodafone's HQ) through trees.

DAY 5
Phil Wood: A wonderful everyday street scene! Could be Milchester and in the next moment Miss Marple in an Admiral's costume might step onto the street!

Miss Marple in an Admiral's costume? That would be bizarre. I actually live much closer to Midsomer, only 20 miles from Causton.

Phil Wood: I like the B&W. Makes me wonder where thsi is.

Shot through the window of a cafe in Bailleul.

It was an interesting week, too much else on to allow much time to take pictures, too little daylight, and, hence, too many desperation shots - we should do another 50mm week during week 25!

Don't know what happened, should be repaired now.
Thanks for reporting the issue Domien.

I enjoyed looking at all the photos. Great job everyone. I wanted to participate, but my business is insane 2 weeks before the holiday and this year was no different. And I spent 4 days in the hospital in January. But getting back to it now and hopefully up for the next one!!

Perhaps you should participate in Day Prime Challenge, the weeks for focal lengths around 50 mm are coming soon...
