  1. Enjoying the water images, especially Mary’s Sunset Beach, lovely colours of oranges and blues.

  2. I like Ian’s “Down the Plughole” but Kelly’s is amazing – to capture the rider doing a somersalt is superb…

  3. Thanks June; and I think you’ve captured the texture of the coffee beans really well.

    Enjoying the “Tales from an Indian Rug” and the 5 “Strawbs”, the colours are striking, drawn to these when looking at all 13. Lovely to see all the different interpretations of patterns, all very interesting pictures. Great too how nature has some great patterns to be studied, liking the feather, the giant hogweed creative treatment, and leaf detail too.

    What a creative set of images! Well done everyone. I’m finding producing one a week a bit of a challenge but everyone else is coping magnificently. My favourites are Nigel’s and Janet’s – love ’em, but the others are original and really well taken too. Signed.. Jealous of Woodley.

    A great new set of images to admire. Well done everyone – I particularly like Ian’s Thistle head flowers – brilliant depth in that – if I get one bit in focus I usually find something else has gone out, but you have kept it all in focus – brilliant. Also love the other patterns in nature – Julie, Sharon & Janet. I have no idea what Nigel’s, Susi’s or Geoffrey’s images are – intriguing – please let us know. Well done everyone – keep taking thise images & sharing them.

      Thanks Mary, focus stacking is the name of the game. Although, I think I might have over sharpened the image a bit, but then it has a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’!

      It’s actually a pigeon feather! I produced this after the DIG talk on Lockdown Photography a few weeks back, where we were told about Photoshop’s “rectangular to polar” mode, so I thought I’d give it a try.

      1. Mary Nash says:

        It is remarkable how different it is to reality!! Fascinating Nigel – keep trying it on other items too, and show us the results.

      Mine is a very close up image of a coloured glass ornament, backlit with a strong light.

      1. Mary Nash says:

        as I say it is intriguing and you have caught the light coming through it well.

    Challenge 10, patterns: wow what a collection of pics. To be honest I was not quite sure what makes a photo of patterns! So I have learned something new, thanks guys.

    1. Nigel Hoult says:

      A great variety of interesting photos again! I particularly like David’s waterfall and Janet’s hogweed – a very different take on it from normal.
