      Now, this is an interesting challenge!

      In the CPS Tweets Ian is including a regular item from the Guardian by Thomond http://t.co/LunKyyYIXp about the North. Many of the shots are of fairly mundane things but he always manages to make them interesting – that is your challenge this month!

      Ken >>> It doesn’t say you have to pace it out yourself (get your lovely cook to do it!);  but in any case let’s say you can take it as about 100 yards.

      And the title very carefully doesn’t say whether it’s inside or outside your door, or, indeed which door it is, or where in the world.  Nor does it say anything about focal length. 😉

      Get your creativity slippers on, Ken! 😉

      Help

      I’m sure the three images above are the correct size (640 pixels on the longest side) and below 512Kb.

      I uploaded them to one of my private galleries and then copied their URL to this post but they have appeared as thumbnails.

      This seems to be similar to Meg’s problems.

      Dennis >>> Looks like you copied the URLs of the thumbnails. You have to open ‘Edit Media’ and then click on an image to display it full size; then right-click on it and select ‘copy image location’ (or whatever your browser calls it).

      More help please

      The three images above were uploaded from my PC at a larger image size of 1200 pixels on the longest side and the largest file is only 364Kb.

      A click on each image will produce a reasonable sized image for viewing.

      The problem now is I can’t add any text such as shot info’, title or description

      Dennis I have put a description of how I uploaded a full size image from the gallery over on your test image post.  It has just struck me that you have Attachments above your images.  I think you are confusing two methods of uploading.   Simply copy the image full size URL and paste into the box that pressing the RH side text tab gives you after clicking img on the tool bar just above the post.

      DO NOT BROWSE YOUR COMPUTER OR UPLOAD AS AN ATTACHMENT AS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST WINDOW … if you want a full size image in your post.

      I like the low angle you’ve used Ian which emphasizes the size of the bamboo and eliminates any distracting foreground.  It looks like it’s reaching for the sky. That’s quite an interesting sky as well.

      A  very attractive image Ian.  I like it where the leaf silhouettes are defined but at the bottom right hand corner where they become a bit more overlapped and blocky it is not quite as pleasing for me.  Lovely dramatic sky.

      That’s a high contrast pattern picture Ian with some interesting shapes. To me it looks a bit to contrasty, but I know you like that effect and if often works well in your images.  Does this picture work well in colour?

      Thanks, Peter. I processed it to enhance the differnces in tonality in the various blocks of triangular shape. It has a green filter applied to lighten the pale leaves in the lower bush, and various local dodgings and burnings to separate the other tonal regions.

      In colour, these differences are less obvious and the shape and geometry of the tonal elements is therefore not so distinct.

      The image is all about triangles, both in the shapes of the elements and in the compositional geometry.

      Thanks, Dee.  Vignette?  Probably – I usually add a touch!  But the natural light was interestingly uneven anyway, and some of the petals were darker than others.

      Neat trick, moving your door! I particularly like ‘Lets Play’: nice, clean composition on the diagonal + repetition of forms. And cheery colour.

      I’m sure Mr. Blakemore would have been proud to have taken your tulip shot Ian. To me it shows how good Fuji lens is corner to corner and like I said on your flickr site, you dont need a focal point to create a great picture.

      I, like Ian , like Dennis’ ‘lets Play’ shot best of his three. The soft clouds contrast nicely with the bold framework structure. All the posts are well separated and not hiding behind each other. You’ve done well to get in close on the ariel, but I think it needs to be a bit more dramatic. Perhaps try tilting the camera to angle the ariel or take with the sun peeping through?

      Thanks for the encouraging points gents, they will spur me on.

      If you don’t see any comments from me towards other members work its because at the moment I feel I need a lot more experience.

      Dennis you don’t need to have expierence to comment. Thats what the forum is all about, that everybody has a point of view and newer members tend to have thoughts that we might not have thought about because we know the member so well. So please don’t be afraid to comment. As long as its a fair critque then thats a good enough starting point.

      Can I echoe Meg’s reply, Dennis?  Do please chip in!  Another reason for doing so is that writing short critiques of others’ photos is very beneficial for your own photography – it’s just another way of making yourself think about what makes a good picture, what it is you like about certain images and not others, and how photos work visually.  As Meg says, you don’t have to be a great expert with a camera to say what you like about someone else’s pictures! 😉

      I thought it was about time I made the effort to post an image on this thread so I took this boring photo of my washing and tried to make it a bit more interesting.

      I think it’s another case of an interesting idea, but I need a better subject.

      To find an interesting subject within the 100 paces remit was quite a challenge but your image shows your skills with software unfortunatly  I think I spot some colour in the corner the garden just to the left of the lowest sleeve.

      Never the less it must have taken a lot of time to achieve the result and I feel you’ve done the best you could with what you had because of all that I don’t think its boring.

      One thing about this months theme is how its reminding me of Bert Hardy and all those photographers were shooting Social commentary images. In a way I feel thats why  these images appeal to me.

      I will crack posting the correctr image size and post a few more for this month.

      Thanks for your comments Dennis and you’re right about the blob of colour peeping through. Well spotted! I did do the selection in a hurry and it is a bit crude.

      Your washing line shot reminds me of your Venice washing images Pete so I can see why it appealed.  I am riveted that you wear turqoise and lavender PJ’s! 🙂  Love the angle of the shot but think the colours are maybe a little bit garish.  Well spotted Dennis … it would be a nightmare to make such a slip up in a competition so we need to keep on our toes.

      Clever stuff Peter—a hum-drum subject–yet all Peters skills give us a good image.  Excellent thought giving complimentary colours  on a mono scene  and well done. Tilt of camera for added interest. Sorry folks I do not nit pick on minor  points–just need to do a check on my garden gnomes!!!!!!!!!!

      Thanks for your comments folks. I don’t mind any constructive criticism. It all helps. I’ve started to tilt the camera a lot more now and find it can make a more dynamic picture. I now look at washing lines in a new light so if you see some weird guy in a blue mac photographing your washing it’s only me!
