Weekly Competition No. 30 "One of My Best Photos"


Link Posted 28/01/2008 - 21:22
This week, the competition will be very easy and a little different, made especially for encourage everybody to participate. Just search in your photo album, and find “One of My Best Photos” (better if not older than 1 year).

Hope this week the competition will have the most numerous entrants, and so, break the barrier of 41 of the Martin´s “Buildings” comp. And the best of all; we will see a very good and very interesting collection of images (better than ever). I´m sure we will open a great treasure chest.

Success to every entrant, and don´t deprive us to see the best of your work.

Best regards.
K10D+ Sigma 18-50 1:2.8 DC; DA 10-17 fish-eye.

Thanks for the broad subject - I've been really struggling to get out and shoot for far too long.

This one was a capture from Christmas, taken using natural light, and then tweaked the levels in Lightroom.
If it moves shoot it .... if it doesn't, shoot it till it does.

What a difficult subject. Most of my pictures have a little story. And I really don't think it's up to me to add text as well. So I figured this one told the story it self

Ring of Brodgar, Orkney, June 2007
K10D 16-45@16 200ASA 1/180 F11

Taken on the afternoon after arriving - the other three days were quite overcast and so not so good for photography.
I have what one might call 'artier' photos from the past year but this one gives me a lot of pleasure by its simplicity.

It's difficult to choose just one image, but I like my "creative" images such as this one, "Sign of the Zodiac". It's part of a series with dissolution as the theme, the fading away and disintigration of our technology.

Best regards, John
