Photos of the week
FOR September 24th, 2015
So, I am really proud of those photos I have found this week. These are taken by people from all over the world, and deserve some special recognition. The quality of the photos, the composition are all just outstanding. I take a week to find just these 5 photos, and it took all week to find these. These, I found, just took my breath away as I saw them. Just outstanding art, and well thought out, and being at the right place at the right time. And, obviously great skill in seeing how to compose the picture, and waiting for the right moment. Congratulations to these fine, skilled artists who we would like to recognize at this time. I hope these pictures inspire all who see them, to go out and take pictures as well, and work hard to earn a spot in the "Photos of the Week".
A special note: most of these photos should be viewed horizontally.

Note how this just seems to capture such a wide area. Definitely caught with a super wide angle lens, and the lighting on this is just perfect. Couldn't find anything wrong with this at all.

This photo grabbed me because of the lighting, and how your eye leads to that red bike. I am guessing that this was taken with a yellow filter, but, still that brought this to a special mood that made it just that much better. A great photo with leading light.

Sometimes, when a picture is this good, it's not a bad idea to put your name on the photo and give it a copyright to it. Plus, it puts your name out there even more. This photo looks like something you would only see in a fairy tale. Could it be true? I don't think this was a fixed photo. This is just innocence brought together in a very special soft lighting effect that makes it just perfect.

I know we get a lot of pictures of sunsets. I try not to be showing too many of those, but, this one caught my eye, not because of the sunset, but, because of the foreground. It seems so hard to get a good forelight situation when the background is so well lit. So, my hat is off to this photographer for capturing light in the foreground and background so well. Anybody want to go there? Nice, eh?

I studied this photo for a few minutes and realized the just how much went into this. It is a perfect photo for this week's subject: "Action Photo's". But, there again, the mood that is created by blurring out the background, and the foreground. The depth of field in this photo is very narrow. You only focus on the girl, and her hat. What great care to make sure that the subject is so centralized and in our eye. Perfect photo.
Congratulations to the five winners this week. Pass this on to your friends and let the world see how beautiful photography can be.
SEE YOU NEXT MONDAY AS I TEACH ABOUT THE SUBJECT: NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY AND LOW LIGHT PICTURES. REMEMBER EACH MONDAY AND THURSDAY FOR GREAT PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS, AND EXHIBITS.
