  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.

    My favourite is Ian’s sunflower, great effect, and like all the others too, including the subtle effect of Nigel’s Clematis.

      Thanks June, it’s a self seeded sunflower that grew up from a crack in my garden path. It was taken on my mobile phone with one of those clip on lenses you can get. I did have a kaleidoscope, and a soft focus filter too, but they didn’t work as well. I did try some post processing filters on some other images, but went back to the original sunflower picture as it worked the best!

    Well done everyone – some interesting images – It did not occur to me to use a filter in photoshop – although I have done that many times before….. I love Julie’s picture best this week. Tony’s and June’s are great too, for the textured feel to them.

      Thanks Mary, I’m glad you liked my ‘Little Planet’! We went through a phase of making these in a Flickr group a few years ago and I rediscovered them recently. The trick is finding an image with a reasonably even foreground and skyline so that it joins up neatly in a circle. There are some amazing shots of skyscrapers done in this way.

    Was interesting to see that 3 of us used filters on our cameras (me, Mary & Brian) and that the others applied filters in post processing! 😉Having said that I think Tony’s “painting” of the church yard and June’s “painting” of blueberries are my favourites this week.

      Thanks Ian. We did a whole lesson and assignment on Filters in Photoshop as part of Digital Manipulation unit, with coursework too. (We all went to photograph Loch Fyne in Reading using Hyperfocal distance and a Filter of your choice, producing framed print for exhibition). Learned a whole lot of stuff.
