Apparently, it's got a wide audience.

Anybody up for the challenge? New photos only.
I'll post up the new challenge each Sunday night. Try to post your effort before the next challenge begins, but this is about doing, not rules, so if you're a day or two late, don't worry about it.
Week 1 Challenge:
Story Telling: Self-Portrait - Take a picture that tells us who you are, without actually showing your face.

Having done a 52 week project last year (yes, I know I stopped posting mid-year, but I did shoot every week) it is a good way to sharpen your skills and far less challenging than a 365 project (BTDT). I'll toss one out for this week, but may not contribute every week.

Been down with a bad cold most of this week and finally felt good enough today with the warm temps to get out and get some shots. Hope to contribute to as many of these as I can this year.

Some really good concepts & comps. Stealthcrf's intrigues me the most. Guessing vet, married, not afraid to get his hands dirty, and I'm seeing what looks like a significant scar in the palm, which I bet is a story in itself. TWtex85's seems straightforward, except I can't quite make out what the box is in the upper left?

Week 2 Composition: Rule of Thirds Motion
You already know what the rule of thirds is, now is the time to use it. Use Rule of Thirds to show motion in your picture.

Hmmm. I've seen subject position, lines of flow, and focus/blur used to show motion, but I'm going to have to think some on how you can use rule of thirds to show motion.

another thought. Post up multiples if you like. No judging here; just sharing & learning.

Week 2 Composition: Rule of Thirds Motion
This challenge is a challenge. I'm hoping to find a good action shot or something to show a panning motion. My chickens are lousy models. I think this implies motion, but unless I do a lot of setup and cut with my camera on a tripod, I think this is the best I can do with this concept. That, and I'm not excited about putting my good camera in that kind of dust environment.

Two for one.

Week 6
Inspiration: #NoFilter
No limit on what you shoot this week, as long as the image is pure. No filters, presets or other edits. Basic exposure corrections only this week.
Week 7
Story Telling: Love Story
Make us feel the love in this week's photo. Tell a love story in one image.

Yeah, I got a symmetry shot over the weekend. I guess it qualifies for Week 6 since I did minimal editing on it. Just a slight crop and exposure.

Week 8. Composition: Leading Lines It is easy to use Leading Lines to show depth in an image or guide the eye to a specific spot in the image. Instead, this week use leading lines to show the concept of infinity.

Some great shots, guys. Unfortunately, tyranny of the urgent has ahold of me, it seems so far this year.

The infinity is that life goes in the younger calves and spring will come every year no matter how hard the critics try to stop it. Tank reflection was just for effect

Going to the desert and Terlingua this weekend which definitely boosts my mood. Anytime away from home does that to me (away from Austin, that is). Have camera, will travel! Probably upload something Monday or Tuesday.
