Thanks, Dee, glad you like Gold. (Goes great with diamonds, I’m told!)
If it didn’t have to be taken this month I could drown you in photo’s
Ha-ha! Yes the photos do have to be taken this month (or, more precisely, during the six weeks of this extended ‘Prize’ theme.)
But as the subject of the photos is ‘Finding interest in the ordinary’ you should be able to get some good shots in your kitchen or your office! 😉November 23, 2013 at 4:43 pm #5387
<h1>I realise this is not strictly relevant – but am still trying to get the hang of this!</h1>
I have absolutely no idea how that text grew.November 23, 2013 at 4:48 pm #5388
My apologies for the apparent garbage under the ‘Forest.’ The bit starting ‘<h1>’ suddenly grew about tenfold and then reverted to what you see on submission. I obviously pressed something I shouldn’t have.November 23, 2013 at 6:16 pm #5389
Don’t worry about it Ralph. You are doing brilliantly just managing to get the picture on here. Well done.
I like Petrified Forest. I’d be tempted to crop the top a bit (lose the sky at least) to make the forest stronger. That’s just me though. Keep it up. I am having a strange month but will post something eventually … I promise! 🙂November 23, 2013 at 7:45 pm #5390
I agree with Dee, Ralph: it’s a striking picture. (I think she’s right about losing the bright stuff at the top.)
On the technical stuff:
The paired ‘h’ tags create Headings. The number after the ‘h’ affects the size: 1 is biggest (ENORMOUS!), 6 is the smallest. (I tend to use h3 for my titles.)
The way you’ve used the pair of tags round the text under your pictures is right. But the tags have to be added round your words on the ‘Text’ tab; they then take effect when you go back to the ‘Visual’ tab. (The ‘Text’ tab is the HTML editor; Visual is the rendered WYSIWYG output.)
I’m impressed that you’re already having a go at HTML tags to format your text! Keep it up!November 23, 2013 at 8:17 pm #5391
Thank you one and all for your encouragement and help. Advice will be taken on board for future use.November 25, 2013 at 6:01 pm #5396
Thanks for your comments Ian. Your ‘flames’ certainly look on fire and contrast with the dark background. I think the background has just enough detail in it. If it was totally black it would have looked like a studio shot.
I think Ralph’s subject of the burnt branches could have been handled in many diiferent ways and I would have tried many different angles. You could try getting in close and use a low angle to enthasize the branches against the sky. However, your versions show the environment which works well.November 30, 2013 at 1:36 pm #5415

One more go at the very ordinary!

Sorry -one more last go (definitive this time!)

Ralph >>> The first one’s interesting because of the rather strange distortion. (Not sure how you got that to happen!)
I really like the second one. The dramatic graphic shapes and the ambiguity of perspective between the lower and upper parts of the picture make it visually striking. ( I might have tried seeing whether I could enhance that effect by making a square-format crop of the upper part of the picture, including the lower black crosspiece but not the sky and struts below it. Just a thought.) Great stuff – keep posting ’em!December 3, 2013 at 7:41 pm #5423
I like ‘This is Nuts’ Ralph. Definitely a new view of an ordinary object. Even the rust adds something. Keep it up! 🙂December 4, 2013 at 3:51 pm #5425
