Ah, it shows now, it didn't yesterday when I was looking through the day 19 thread. Nice, rather abstract shot : )

Well - the last of my pics are up. I didn't comment as much as I had intended, although I hope to comment on everyone's stuff in the voting thread when the time comes.

I missed out on two days and decided not to fill those in with shots from other days - one was a desperation shot that was too shaky to use, while another was the sudden realization at half-past midnight that I'd not taken a shot the previous day.

On the whole, I took rather too many desperation and filler shots for my own liking - Of the rest, some of the most successful were probably the ones that verged on abstract...

...at least the oven shot shamed me into cleaning the oven door...

It was across the tracks and inaccessible but perfectly positioned for my prime.

alanfrombangor -- Lynne: Nice composition for a portrait of a lovely lady.

Lynne is a star, as a child she helped her father deliver Labour Party campaigning leaflets for the 1945 election which produced the government that created our National Health Service.

That's my escape route for commenting as well

Fred_S - what a nice piece of automatic craftsmanship and your choice of shallow depth of field has produced a very appealing image

Thanks James! Don't spot those kind of cars around the corner every day

@Fred_S - fine shot against the light, with those curious cows reflected in the water.

@Fred_S - lovely contre-jour bucolic scene with the rising mists.


The cows were curious indeed

"Bucolic" thanks for teaching me a new word!
Learning every day here as non native English.
I had hoped for a little more fog as earlier that week when I didn't bring my camera .
The 90mm was a bit short. Could have used the APSC mode without cheating, but figured that out only afterwards.

Apologies for all the typo's in this comment

Thanks! The B&W was a bit of an escape

I'm going to comment on some shots that caught my eye, but that I haven't yet had the chance to comment on. (My comments are still somewhat time-constrained and therefore brief -- more so than I'd like).

GlassEye Day 2 - wonderful vivid colors and primary shapes

bigsi's Day 6 photo - I love the mood of the foggy forest in this one. And your Day 21 shot of the sycamore seed was gorgeous (well deserving of it's place in the exhibition the other day)

Tricky01 - I enjoyed all your macros, but the Day 14 portrait of a snail was my favorite - the DOF is spot on

Snegren Day 10 - strong monotone image dominated by the geometry of the rope bridge - looks a tiny bit canted to the right (clockwise), to my eye

Jozioau - I like your Day 16 still life shot - just the right exposure, and a nice inviting scene

pegelli Day 19 Tunnel in the woods - I always enjoy forest path scenes, and I enjoy how the path bends through the image (I also like your Day 29 shot, but prefer this one as a bit more natural or 'organic' as one might say)

alanfrombangor - the Day 26 cyclist's self-portrait was perfectly composed & processed

greja Day 27 - I like the hard diagonal line here

I thought all month about doing an oven shot but never did - I seem to remember some enterprising young individual, years ago, did the same. I'm keen to try my remote trigger for it sometime. BUT, as you say, one has to consider cleaning the oven to make it happen.

Out of time for now, but I hope to continue commenting later.

I have some to catch up on as I've been out every day with the leaves and then the crane. The leaves will be gone very soon.

This challenge has been very helpful for me. I had not used my 35mm plastic fantastic nor my 50 macro much for awhile. Part of the reason.. I love my 100mm macro so much and my 16-50mm ssm gets used a lot. One of the reasons I love the 100 is due to an April Fools, when I learned to use it better. So the 50mm was neglected a bit. I had kind of forgotten what a great lens it is, and found it is outstanding for ICM, much lighter than the 16-50 and easier to manipulate, and great colors.

I also found out I really don't like the 35 plastic that much, the colors not nearly as nice as the Minoltas. So that leaves me wanting to buy a wider Minolta prime for ICM if I can find a good light one. Or an A mount full frame body, even a used a99, to use with the 50 macro in the future.   

And I enjoyed the wide variety of photos of others with their primes. A great learning experience all around and glad I participated.
