    Things we see in our own homes (or, in this case, my daughter's) and often miss the photographic quality of those commonalities.

    I think that's a good theme for a monthly challenge...5 minutes from home - make us look closely around us and just see what we can come up with - so great idea and I love the lighting through the venetians

    Actually if it's ok I'll join your thread....?
    as I went looking last evening at sunset for my friendly farmer doing the baling...but alas all finished, nice round bales everywhere just waiting to be picked up...so instead I chose some sheep - this is 5 minutes 'drive' from home.
    There has been drought breaking rain this spring, not that it shows here...I wanted to try to represent the harsh colours/climate that we have an hour from a big city..

    I think we should make this an open thread for exactly as you've said: 5 Minutes or less from home, or at home. Color or B&W. I know I pigged out a bit, but let's limit the number per post to three images.

    Chris, I really love the warm colors in #3 (though I do think the white in the upper mid-right could be toned down a bit). As I have no idea how to access EXIF data for these shots, or even if it's available, could you tell a little about how you got this shot, including EXIF and PP? I've read all the tutorials, so now I need to start asking lots of questions about how people get particular shots. Thanks for sharing; I do admire your work.

    Thanks for this one Chris. It was high time I want back to basics and had a break from playing about in the sandpit. I have enjoyed this bit of straight photography off the cuff for a change.

    Can I play too?

    A flat slab of ice slid from the roof and landed perpendicular, this is one of the thin edges melting. I thought it was kind of interesting, but I'm not sure that I captured it well.

    Happy New Year....May your 2011 be filled with proper exposure (glasses clinking)

    Hi Debbie,

    Nothing a little PP won't help with.

    Everyday Images

    Looked under exposed, so in Levels, white point set at 230 (down from 255)
    Local Contrast Enhancement (LCE) using USM; 20% 80px 0th.
    Sharpen with USM; 100%, 0.3px, 11px

    Hope that helps (and HNY to you too),
