    I've just taken some paracetamol. Not the pressure of doing a shot a day, but the pressure of trying to work out how to use my new Panasonic G1 4/3 camera!

    So what colour did you get? Pretty pink, boys' own blue or bruiser's black? And more importantly, does it fit in your pocket?

    Silly question. Pretty pink of course - to match the used underwear... continue here

    Not yet, but we may soon regret getting carried away posting several subjects per day early on (and running out of ideas before long)

    One More Time

    Day 07: July 2010 Photo-a-Day Thread

    Canon 500D, Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IF USM Macro lens, detailed EXIF here. PAD slideshow here. It was dusk, and I added some fill flash.

    This is our Golden, Dakota, asking for one more throw of the ball. At the beginning, she's romping back with her head and tail high, but after a while, she's like a marathoner at mile 25. But I think she'd chase it until she collapses: she never wants to stop.

    I'm certainly noticing the need to get some shots every day: I organize by date, so it was easy to look back, and for the first six months this year, I took pictures on 1/2 to 2/3 of the days each month. This was a great idea.

    C&C always appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Rick

    Have a guess :)

    Today was (not) the day :(

    Today was supposed to be the day when high tide co-incided with sunset. I was hoping for some co-operative clouds, but I ended up with what I call a double-cheese sandwich due to a layer of stratiform cloud above the mountains that lets in a bright band of light, which is then reflected in the water. It looks quite spectacular when the sun hooks up under the clouds, but it's quite hard to do a lot with when shooting wide angle as you and up with 2 bright thin strips, and not a lot else ... so the best I could come up with was this ...

    Since I've shot the bench a few times now, I thought I'd follow my own rule and "check my 6 o'clock" whilst there - and thought that a shot in the reverse direction might work (although I did have to clone out a little "engraving" on the bench to stop the image becoming R18 only!). I deliberately chose a shutterspeed to capture a portion of car headlights - and the track you can see just behind the bench is a cycleway (I had to be a little careful as the tripod was on the cycleway for some of the shots ... and it's quite dark when I shoot these - and some of the cyclists are fair "peddling" along that stretch.

    The final image is one that I've shot before. It was looking quite nice so I thought I'd take another shot to see it it's any better than the one I took a few days ago -- I'll let you decide if it is or isn't

    That's some interesting processing that you've done there Kit - how did you do that?

    Very nice, Peter. Having the stem toward the camera and the whole thing rotated a quarter turn gives new life to an "ordinary" still life.

    I like the reverse shot, Colin, but I'd prefer it without the bench, I think. Maybe I just have a deep-seated aversion to benches.

    I like the sky much better in this shot of the "cloud factory," but the mist or bokeh-fuzzed stuff in the foreground is distracting, and the smoke from the stacks isn't as pleasing. Overall, I prefer the first one, but if you could transplant this sky onto the other one...

    Cheers,
    Rick

    The 'G(1)' spot

    Swansea marina - an old light-ship moored outside the Maritime Museum. Panasonic G1, with 14-45 lens. I can't understand how I keep spotting shots like this one!

    Nearly didn't make it again today. Going to have to stop relying on finding inspiration and go back to perspiration!

    But, I was at my local rail station which, conveniantly is next to an airport. So just as I'm looking for an interesting angle on the track along comes the London express travelling South and off goes a scheduled flight North, and I've got two shots.

    Tomorrow is going to be interesting... have to do an audit in Sheffield there's got to be a shot in that?

    What are you doing with my chicks?
    Day 07: July 2010 Photo-a-Day Thread

    The big white blob in front of the nest is the porchlight bulb. I didn't want to reach up and move it, as the parents were pretty insistent that I needed to GET OUTTA THERE!
