One - weekly comp chat thread 11th - 17th June 2012
« on: June 10, 2012, 08:56:48 AM »
For this week's competition, in honour of the Dalai Lama`s visit to Leeds to address a business conference on "ethical business" at £345 a ticket,  I thought the old classic title of "One " would be fitting. Shoot one of anything at all making it as beautiful, enigmatic, simple or exciting as you like. Anything goes in processing.

Gives me an opportunity to post the Australian interviewer`s attempt at engaging  the DL with humour too:

Yep, definitely more than one!

Don't think I'll enter this time though, as I'll be away for a fortnight from June 20th.
Unless of course someone offers to do the honours like setting up threads and the poll, in the unlikely event I'd win.

ULTIMATE ONE
« Reply #6 on: June 12, 2012, 08:14:50 PM »
The ULTIMATE ONE. As I walked through the woods today looking for inspiration I saw a single, lonely rotted stump and thought, 'o, that would be good'. I took several pictures, and returned home. But then I though, 'a stump was one tree, but now is less than one. As I looked at the pic though, I relized it was more than one. It was actual 10.1 mega pixels. Too big! So I reduced the size a bit. In fact I reduced it to the ULTIMATE ONE, because 1 multiplied by one, is still one. It just doesn't get any more one-er than that.

But can you reduce it to one pixel?  :P

It's sort of green. I have to admit it doesn't say a lot to me ;)

Being one pixel it is, of course, also only one color.

Yes kerbside got it right - one of anything. Cannot be simpler really - if there are two you have to clone one out which is allowed in processing without limits. Any colour, any size anything - that OK? ;)

Something like this: One Volunteer.  (This is not an entry by the way, as I did not take the picture.) It is however the latest shot of me, taken at today's volunteering stint.

No, even though the hammer is perfectly balanced, I prefer the simple wooden post. Much easier to get rid of afterwards; hammer it into the ground, burn it or simply put on the log pile!
