After a first succesful annual 150 photo challenge in 2021, I'll be starting a new one in this year.

Again, three topics where I be posting a weekly shot. This year my three topics will be:

- street photography; In its wides sense possible. A thema I like and feel comfortable with. My challenge is that the picture has to be taken with a 35mm or smaller perspective & has to have people in them.

- ultra wide; Making more use of my 15 & 21mm lenses. I own them, but only 10% of all the images in my library are taken with wider perspective as 35mm. So the challenage really is just to get them off the shelf and find out more about when and how this perspective really shines.

- linear perspective; I want to learn more about this form of composing an image. Not sure how far I'll get through this learning curve, but I'll like to give it a go.

week 01

street - SunriseRiders - during a sunrise hike during winter holidays these riders came galloping down the beach, only had seconds to take out the cam and capture just 2 images


Ultra wide - BlastingNewYear - although goverment forbit it still people could not resist to start 2022 with a blast.


Linear perspective - MidnightMarauders - quarantaine lockdown brought clublife to a near standstill. Illigal outdoor raving parties under highways are perfect for midnight marauders

A very strong start to your challenge there @onsplekkie.

The horse riders give the beach scene a lot of extra interest, and the New Years celebration shot really benefits from your wide angle shot.

Week 2

street - LickMyA.. - the AF on the 1.4/35GM is blazing fast & steady on subject. My new partner in crime on the street


Ultra wide - HvH - once a month I visit Hoek van Holland for work. Not a bad commute follow the coastal line up to The Haque through the dunes cycle paths. Loxia21 makes easy work of misty light


Linear perspective - P - feels like hard work getting a shot that works on this theme. I like how the P gives some direction to the leading horizontal line of the harbour

A nice selection of shots.

Have to say Pic 1 is my favourite. The 35/1.4 GM looks to be superb in your hands.

Pic 2 with the Loxia 21 is also a nice image, especially with the mist in the background.

You do have some very nice lenses in your lineup!

THNX for your comments, keeps me going!

week 3

street - gettin the grips on panning under streetlights (1/30 shuttertime). Loving the 2:1 ratio at this moment


ultra wide - another street shot, but taken with the VM4.5/15


Linear perspective - not much time this week, competition not very good, but, I like the lines edging towards the centre

Lovely night pan, but I'm put off by the bulbous whatever in the third shot.

Hi @onsplekkie

I'm of the opinion (after last year) that if we can encourage each other with comments, the chances we all finish the challenge will be improved .

You've got a good Week 3 set again. Your fist pic is the one I liked the best. What lens did you use for it? It's an adept exercise in panning in the dark.

The third shot has some strong lines in it, which I like, but the foreground (as you probably realised) was a bit distracting.

Onward to Week 4!

I'm liking those ultrawide aspect ratio shots! And the pan while the bike is at 45 deg and receding - very effective.

THNX for all comments.
I know the bulbus was a bit much (slowly sliding down the learning curve)

I'll give panning during dark another chance coming time.

How dull would photography be if we ever stopped learning

And you are becoming very adept with the panning.

I agree the panning shot (#1 this week) is very nice. The light reflecting on the slightly damp or wet street adds to the mood.

I think the third would also benefit from a letterbox crop (2:1) to remove some of the bulb without destroying the lines of the building (b.t.w. is that the former palace of Anna Paulowna in The Hague?)
