sharkboy -> RE: OTPC Round 5 - In a Garden - Enter now (2/7/2012 1:40:36 PM)

Ha - I've always wanted to be at the centre of one of those "...gate" scandals! [:D]

Anyway, this month's entry will be up when I get home later




Chief Wiggum -> RE: OTPC Round 5 - In a Garden - Enter now (4/7/2012 11:00:25 PM)

Fuck it - I've been holding off entering this for a couple of days in the hope I can get a shot of a barn owl in flight at a decent bit of quality, but that seems to be nigh on impossible so I'll just enter this baby

^ jesus fuck that's hard to beat [:)] My camera cant get the wee fuckers that much in focus. i haven't had any ideas for the comp yet. Hope i get inspired soon!




Funkyrae -> RE: OTPC Round 5 - In a Garden - Enter now (5/7/2012 9:28:41 AM)

That's amazing!

I keep trying to get a picture of one of the frogs in my pond. Buggers keep hopping off though when I get anywhere near!

I had a great picture of some of the frogs in our pond from about two years ago, but I can't seem to find it now.[sm=893Grumpy-thumb.gif]




Hobbitonlass -> RE: OTPC Round 5 - In a Garden - Enter now (5/7/2012 9:40:42 AM)

That is indeed a picture to make you go WOW! 

I don't have a garden but will be trawling through my many pics of visits to RHS Garden Wisley to see what I have [:D]




hozay -> RE: OTPC Round 5 - In a Garden - Enter now (5/7/2012 10:02:47 AM)

Nice start Chief !
I was thinking of using a frog shot too or a bug. I have a heap of flower shots I could use too I guess.

Be A Petal

I was torn between this one and a slightly more simplistic one. I hope I made the right choice.




sharkboy -> RE: OTPC Round 5 - In a Garden - Enter now (5/7/2012 7:43:09 PM)

Looks like flowers are gonna be a popular choice this round!

Sun Flower

[image]http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c340/sharkboy66/106311.jpg[/image]

Adjusted curves and added border - all global




hubu_phonk -> RE: OTPC Round 5 - In a Garden - Enter now (5/7/2012 9:23:26 PM)

Well i had a choice between two types of beasties in my garden to choose from, and went with this ( after serious laminations over wanting a new lens !) Global edits: crop/ wee bit of contrast & saturation. Here is ....

Funkyrae -> RE: OTPC Round 5 - In a Garden - Enter now (5/7/2012 9:45:17 PM)

Oh wow! SO many good photos already!




jonson -> RE: OTPC Round 5 - In a Garden - Enter now (6/7/2012 7:39:55 AM)

Yeah, great stuff so far.
I am thinking of buying myself a new camera this weekend, something to take on holiday with me, light, compact but with a bit of zoom and clarity, I have a small Sony Cybershot, about 6mega pixels, so only an average snap and shoot, but I would like something a bit better.
Not that this is the thread for camera discussions, just making an excuse in case I enter something really bad [:D]




pocketrocket -> RE: OTPC Round 5 - In a Garden - Enter now (6/7/2012 10:57:26 AM)

'kin hell. Bar is a lot higher already this round!


[sm=schild15.gif]Jonson, the Canon Powershor S100 is a great point and shoot and much more, pricey but v good.

As English as cricket

Snapped before I destroyed their home ([:(]), mowing my overgrown front lawn, on my Galaxy phone.

Contrast, colour and brightness global edits, as well as a border.

Edit: they're probably grasshoppers, not crickets, but the pun works better with crickets...

Adjusted for contrast

Mellow Yellow

hozay -> RE: OTPC Round 5 - In a Garden - Enter now (16/7/2012 4:24:26 AM)

I've had a bit of time on my hands so went out and took a bunch of shots for this month's theme. Too many, it took me a week to narrow it down to three and now finally one but I'm still not sure.
It's Winter here so .......

After The Rain

[image]http://i94.photobucket.com/albums/l114/xzkqpfh12/IMG_0046.jpg[/image]


Edit: Forgot to say I used a Universal edit and very slightly sharpened the image.




hubu_phonk -> RE: OTPC Round 5 - In a Garden - Enter now (16/7/2012 8:32:23 AM)

^ Thats beautiful [:)]




Hobbitonlass -> RE: OTPC Round 5 - In a Garden - Enter now (17/7/2012 10:58:35 PM)

Nnnrrrgggh!!! Really struggling to choose a photo to enter. Narrowed it down to 6 at the moment [:D] I will choose one soon though, promise!




Hobbitonlass -> RE: OTPC Round 5 - In a Garden - Enter now (19/7/2012 9:43:33 AM)

Okay!

Sticking with the macro flowers

[image]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v66/Karen5565/DSC03080-1.jpg[/image]

Sunrise (sorry, couldn't think of anything else!)

A seperate award should go to Reb for the best title! [:D]




Chief Wiggum -> RE: OTPC Round 5 - In a Garden - Enter now (20/7/2012 12:42:53 PM)


Right, quick reminder that entries close on Sunday (about 5ish) so if you want to enter, post your pics before then




hubu_phonk -> RE: OTPC Round 5 - In a Garden - Enter now (20/7/2012 2:59:54 PM)

Hobbitonlass, there's something about that photographed flower that makes me want to eat it, looks as if it would taste lovely [:)]




Chief Wiggum -> RE: OTPC Round 5 - In a Garden - Enter now (22/7/2012 5:50:02 PM)

Righty-ho it's that time of the month again - time to get voting. As per usual, pick you favourite 3 pics in no particular order and i'll tot the numbers up next sunday.

If you could start thinking about themes for next month's competition so we can get it underway for the 1st of next month that'd be grand.
