C: Prime lens


Blavatnik | NEX-7 and Sigma E 30 F2.8

Cropped to Cinemascope/64:27/21:9

Back to the Future. I'm waivering in my opinion of this building, but it always presents interesting photo opportunities. At the end of a winter day the light passes over the C19 OUP and St Paul's buildings, and others behind and to one side are reflected in the glass façade. A nearby empty lot is used for parking (one day it will be a glossy addition to the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter), and for now we have traffic cones marching across the foreground like alien geese.

Another good set for Week 4 there Howard.

The Creativity shot looks a strong image and you've caught a good moment during the performance. I wouldn't have guessed it was a jpeg shot out of the camera. How things have improved since the early days of DSLRs.

The Prime Lens shot is one I also like. That is an interesting building. May I ask where it was? I've stayed at a couple of the Oxford Colleges as a visitor in recent years but for some reason, can't recall seeing it. It may be your perspective and timing was not one I had.

@Wētāpunga, many thanks.

The building houses the Blavatnik School of Government and is located on Walton Street on the western side of the site of the former Radcliffe Infirmary. Somerville College is a neighbour to the south. Architects were Herzog & de Meuron. It opened in 2015.

Yeah, full of admiration about the photographs showed here.
I also admire your perseverence in those yearlong challenges, and with this quality. Keep up the wonderful works!

Ah, thanks, it's an area of Oxford I haven't had time to explore. I've stayed at the Merton and Mansfield College (with a side trip to the New College). And had meetings at the Oxford Martin School (plus the odd local pub).

Yes, absolutely, and nice to see someone showing the results here. I've taken dozens of rolls of film with the original 35 and am planning to show at least one in my 150 challenge.

I'll second those thoughts. I loved the roundhouse picture, but I also liked the low-key grey-scale images with a single colour showing, presumably for real and not faked.
The Magdalen image brings back memories of walking past it to lectures (a very long time ago)

Thank you again for your feedback; I am falling behind in my own commenting and will endeavour to do so in the next day or so.

Meanwhile, on to Week 5.

A: Creative


Seven Sisters, distressed

You may recall my previous version of this view, cropped square and on the previous page of this thread. Here I have transferred a full frame version to an Instax Wide Link printer - these makes a photographic print onto Instax Wide film. In this case, however, this is from a film that got jammed in my camera and rather than loose ten prints I stuck it in a drawer to await the day when I got a new(er) Instax Wide camera. I'm still waiting, and then Fuji bring out this printer ... and the distressed and lightly fogged film brings its own character and sense of decay.

B: This week in ... 2016


The thick of it

I had the pleasure of visiting Towcester races in 2016 and what a fabulous experience it was. Free admission, fence-side vantage points, all the characters and bookies. This is an action shot shot - to my astonishment - on an A7 with a Rokkor MC W.Rokkor 35mm f/2.8, cropped to the action. I love the mud and bits of fence flying everywhere.

C: Prime lens


Wytham Woods in winter

Still using that A7, I took it out at the weekend with the Samyang manual focus 14mm F2.8 lens. Wytham Woods are to the north and west of Oxford, just outside the ring road. It is a tract of land gifted to the University eighty years ago, and from the top of the hill, where the woods start, you can see across Oxford to Headington and the gleaming white JR Hospital complex. I was on the hunt for a photo that shows winter and in the absence of snow this will have to do.

Already in Week 5, that's good momentum Howard.

Of your 3, the one that makes me go wow is #2, the Towester Races one. Hard to believe you got that with the A7 and a manual focus Rocker! The whole scene with the drama and flying mud looks to be such a decisive moment.

The Creative shot has a nice feel to it.

The Wytham Woods has an interesting atmosphere, and I wonder if you'd considered trying this as a black and white or split-tone image?

I must find time to get on to my Week 5 shots!

Thanks again, Kai.

I have looked at duotoning that last photo (or one like it), but I miss the old duotone panel that used to be in LR; the new colour grading panel gives me too much to play with! Also, this version here is almost going into duotoning territory so I feel there isn't so much to gain. I appreciate the suggestion.
