This works well in cinemascope - perhaps our familiarity with this viewing shape from movies is a thing. Fog is a nice time to shoot, I like the composition.

Also like that you're thumbnail linking back from page one - smart idea (gonna borrow that). Also prefer your wording of 'theme' rather than the 'channel' I've been using ... so I'm gonna go borrow that too. [dCap, the thief!]

I agree, the index is a good idea ...

Please teach me how to link the thumbnail in first post to original post?

See here

The main trick is to replace the link to the flickr page to the link to the post on Dyxum where the photo is shown.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

I have sneakily changed the title of my third theme from Try Something New to Try Something Creative. It better reflects my intent, and the concept of 50 new techniques was far too daunting.

Lockdown hinders many photographic activities - including this week's attempt to capture an interesting light trail. This junction is normally busy to well past midnight. Last night this was the only capture I got with more than one vehicle passing, most of the time there were none.

Yeah, good move. 50 entirely new things would be a major challenge.

Looks like you've got the timing and shutter speed right for a good light-trail shot. A good shot under the constraints, now...just for more cars.

Your long exposure has made me miss shooting moving vehicles.

While I like living on the edge of a not so large town (40,000 pop) with countryside walks on from my door (v useful during lockdown) I do envy city livers some of their photo opportunities. There is no high spot around here from which I can capture the long trails I'd like to apart from those over a motorway or trunk road - plenty of traffic but dull straight lines. Nevertheless an idea for next week's creative spot.

Nice start Phil, I especially like the light trails. I think the limit to only a few helped the composition, together with the shiny reflection of the wet surface and the yellow zig-zag. It all fits together quite well which might have been lost when the light trails would have overwhelmed the scene

Lockdown light trails - a proper challenge (although round here, it seems plenty of people are still driving to work in the morning. The Try Something New is going to be a tough challenge. The foggy fairway is just right for the 64/27 ratio.

Great start! I always enjoy foggy trees. I haven't done a long exposure with cars in a while. I will probably add something to my project one of these weeks.

Week 2 - Theme 1 - Lens Extravaganza.

Last week it was the shutter cap Min AF 35-80mm f4-5.6 - a real turkey (a phrase I feel is a little unfair on turkeys). For week 2 I chose the companion lens, the only other shutter cap, the Min AF 80-200mm f4.5-5.6 launched at the same time (1988 - not Minolta's best year) along with the Minolta 3000i - presumably sold in a two lens kit.

While the 80-200 is not a great lens, it is very much better than it's smaller sibling.

Footpath.

Sony A99ii + Minolta AF 80-200mm f4.5-5.6 @ 200mm. ISO 500, f8 1/25s
