It's the first day of the challenge and I see posts in 3 weeks already. That's great! Apparently the flexibility of this challenge is appreciated.

A gentle reminder: week A is for 20-29mm, week B is for 35-45mm, week C is for 70-90mm and week D for 100-135mm, no matter with which week you start.
So if you start with a 100-135mm, you are in week D; you might think for you it's week A because it's your first week but that's not how it works. Week A is not week 1, week D is not week 4.

Thank you Leo for explaining it loud & clear.

A few comments on Day 1 (it'll be a little bit more difficult to comment on the images but we'll give it a try).

Day 1 - D -
nandbytes - almost a fluo purple shot, nice but heavy. It hurts, it tickles my mind.
Snegren - nice play with the wall-painting (there's no other brick indeed).

Day 1 - B - onsplekkie - very nice Werchter-shot! een echte Helle Sangel, well implemented, nice drawing in the clouds, nice dark head-theme.

Pegelli - You make me dizzy! A theme we've seen in other contests, but one that's never boring. This time i got sick from the jumper (in fact i've been trying to avoid jumpers last week, and this week, but that's another matter...) The heliar is indeed sharp as a knife.

Day 1 - A -
Dopol - wow - that's a brilliant silver image - shines as hell. This one rocks.
bigsi - the flower shot isn't something to be sad about. Nicely done!
Hezu - the Sony 24 FE is a sharp lens, this image proves it.
darosa - the reinvention of rotating heavy metal in b&w.
Miranda F. - it's nice to see a cosina 24mm - some of these lenses are very well made? Are you happy with the other images you took up until now? Nice play with the bridge and the colors of the buildings.

Day 1 - NO C today.

At least i'm happy to see no pink yoghurt images - somebody managed to pour that over a laptop and the cleaning was a mess - and the result was zero. Everything was ruined - including the SSD. The challenge is on - posting pink Fristy images.

Week B's choice was a easy one. Picked up a Voigtlander 1.2/40 just recently. Very nicely build (so small for a f/1.2) lens, with that touch of vintage character in IQ I like

I also started in week B, with my Voigtländer Heliar 40/2.8. A very sharp but also very small (collapsable) lens so easy to take along. Very similar construction to my old Elmar 50/3.5, both optically (triplet) as well as mechanically (chrome, turn and push in).

I'll start commenting on the outtakes once the first page is filled, and put some myself there as well .

Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Thank you for the feedback
I did think it was a bit over saturated, but felt I should try being bold

Actually, it was shining brass. Very hard to keep details when things are this reflective

Thanks Ivo, its just that I spend my days (I'm a gardener) surrounded by them!

Sorry about your laptop, managing to trash an SSD is quite an achievement. I hope everything works out for you.

It's not my laptop - but something that has been brought in for repair/recovery by the owner of the data (i'm a backup-freak, i'd never power on a machine after something has been poured over the machine...).

And i have backups (well it's always not enough - but at least i have them).

I'm finding this a tricky challenge to comment on - so many threads appearing so quickly.

However, my favourite set so far is waldo_posth's colour sequence, great shots individually (the blue outtake is also outstanding) and together. Intrigued to see what day 5 will bring.
