« on: April 19, 2015, 11:14:58 AM »
'SCAPE

CHAT THREAD:

ENTRIES THREAD IS HERE

This week's challenge has been set by DD, now either in mid air or already at a local bar on her holidays.

Setting a broad theme so that everyone can join in, this week's theme is 'SCAPE. That's a land/sea/city scape of any kind from any time of the day, and using whatever techniques you care to. The idea is that your image would be an ideal choice to hang on your wall. Good luck everyone, happy snapping.

Obviously, no restrictions on PP (or using drones for that matter :) )

Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59pm Monday 27th April 2015.

The Rules for the weekly competition are...

By entering you agree to take responsibility to
Post a topic on, or before the Sunday following your declared win

Create a poll for that weeks comp and declare the winner on the Saturday
(if for any reason there is a problem and no subject is posted by the winner by Monday night admin will advise second place winner to post the topic asap, do the poll etc.)

Not wall art in MY sense of wall art. Just a nice scenic shot that would look great hung in an office, a house, on a restaurant wall, doctors surgery, a gallery even. Views from my little canarian house are lovely but there's stuff like walls and trees to stop me getting a shot. But I have trips planned. And WiFi!

I'd love to go there. Looks amazing.
Have a great time.
May the Force be with you.

I`m in (for now) with Deconstructed Landscape.


Having gone out with my big stopper the clouds were nowhere just blue skies so i thought I`d try a deconstructed landscape pulling out the elements that make up the whole. better than the run of the mill first effort I did - maybe ;)

Good idea! It sure is different.

I wonder if Chris has managed to get some spectacular Lanzarote landscapes, and Jen some Yosemite ones.

Fortunately I don't have to give it away. Have had an amazing 3 days in Yosemite, beautiful mornings and rainy afternoons. Just have to plough through 2,500 images to choose 1 to submit :2funny:

Dang!

It looks like there won't be an entry from me this week. Rain, fog, mist and more rain. I don't have a town or city on hand, so it would have to have been a landscape. But I can't see the gates at the end of the drive at the moment.

There was a break in the frain this afternoon, so I went for it:





The first is a 3 stop HDR, hand held, created inside the new Lightroom, and the second is a 4 shot hand held panorama assembly, also done with the new version of Lightroom. The processes are fast and look pretty effective to me.

I won't be entering either of them, posted so you can look at the new LR features in action.
