Week 28 has some very striking pictures @pegelli

Smart to lead in with the cat photo, and she's posed well (and your compositon is also very nice). Does her highness have an official name or do you just use titles?

The a700 rose pic has used that selective, narrow DOF extremely well. I've always liked the flower shots you've produced, so well and so consistently.

Thanks Wētāpunga, I'm sure her highness has a name but it's the cat of friends where we stayed and to be honest I forgot to ask her name

And flower macros is something I always enjoy and come back to, hence the vintage digital macro topic of my 150 challenge, for me it's relatively easy to accomplish.


Week 30 - Topic 1 (day or month prime)

Only a zoom end for day prime this week, so it has to be that same zoom lens somewhere in the range for this challenge

Abandoned factory building along the canal Schoten - Turnhout

A7ii + LA-EA4 + beercan @ 100 mm


Week 30 - Topic 2 (vintage digital macro)

After the rain

A700 + Sigma 180/3.5 telemacro



Week 30 - Topic 3 (dig in the archive)

In may 2013 MiPr set up a splendid Dyxum meeting in Wroclaw with members from Poland (obviously) but also Netherlands, Belgium and the UK. He was a great host and showed us many interesting spots in and around the city.

Your skill with flower macros is rather good, and I like the latest version with the rain drops (Week 30, #2). That really adds an interesting element.
The third shot with Wroclaw's organic waterways and roading conforming to it also make a striking pic.
The abandoned building is nicely composed, but I'd be itching to try out a black-and-white conversion here!

Thanks for the suggestion Wētāpunga, here's a B&W version and indeed it works well imho

27/3 - very colorful!
28/3 - I like the greyscale tones.
29/3 - This pic caused me stop and study the composition. The nearest bust is exaggerated in size and that me view it a bit in detail before the leading line of the corridor made my travel down to the end of the corridor.
30/2 - I wonder if taking a step to the right would've cause the background branch to disappear for a cleaner background. But the watery petals make for an interesting pic.
30/1 - I prefer the B&W a bit more but that's most likely a personal bias since I tend to favor B&W a bit more.
More Dyxumer, less photographer.

Thanks for the comments Sashi. To answer on 30/2 I tried different angles and in all cases something slightly distracting showed up in the background and this was the best of the bunch, and I didn't attempt to heal or clone it all out. And you're right on 30/1, the shot is more about textures and shapes and less about colour, so Wētāpunga made a great suggestion to try that and I'm glad I followed his advice

Last week we took a short break (1 week cycling in the Brugge area) but I have full sets for week 31 and 32


Week 31 - Topic 1 (week or month prime)

Our dear Entlebucher Sennen dog Lexie

A7ii + FE 70-300 G @ 128 mm (no prime for the week, so a zoom shot "in the range"



Week 31 - Topic 2 (vintage digital macro)

Inspired by Neil's (owenn01) "racetrack" shot, #13 in this set

A700 + Sigma 180/3.5 telemacro

The "Iceberg on Jökulsárlón" looks like a painting IKEA would love to sell it!
"Staredown" who won?
