    Two days until we end this challenge, everyone. Start thinking about putting your last few images into your picture posts! ValleyFan should start thinking about who he's going to tap to choose the next theme, which I'd like to have up and running by Monday the 28th.

    On Friday morning, I'm going to sift through and pare down everything that isn't critique. There's only a little, so thanks for sticking to the guidelines for the most part!

    I think that this has gone fairly smoothly for a first attempt. There are some things that are just kind of tough to do within the confines of a bulletin board system's thread, but I think once we learned how things worked, it was relatively easy to go back and review new images.

    Because I had so much fun with this one, I want to set up a second Challenge right away. I want to see if there's ways I can improve how the everything works, so PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE send me ideas for improvement of the Challenge via PM.

    Also, if you've got any ideas for Challenge themes, I'd like to hear those via PM, too. Here's a list of what people have already suggested.

    Thanks again for everyone's participation! I think this has been a pretty cool way for us all to learn!

    Looking at the glass eye shot again, did you get that with a flash somewhere near on camera pointing at a bounce card under your wife's chin?

    I'm not super happy with these shots, but I had some down time at work and didn't want to let the first photo challenge go by without a submission.








    All three are uncropped, unfortunately. The first and third are unaltered, and the second one had a slight contrast tweak in Photoshop

    The orange color in #3 was using the stock daylight WB setting in the XTi. The other two were with the stock tungsten WB setting.

    Close. It was off-camera and sitting in her lap pointed straight up. Diffuser was a plain sheet of white paper.

    Alls I can say is that I'm amazed by some of the talent and imagination of some of you guys. Very artistic eyes when it comes to color, light, composition...

    I particularly like some of those shots by FBJ, PuckMonkey, ValleyFan, Otto, Puchkead, Rinkrat's skulls, etc.

    I finally put up my shots this morning, and while they don't compete with some of the cool shots in this thread, I'm glad that you guys have given me the motivation to play with what my camera can do.

    Thanks, everyone!

    Have you ever guessed somebody's gender wrong? There's no recovering from that. You just gotta move on, cause you ain't wriggling outta nothin'.

    Teeny,

    That right there is some KICK ASS stuff, my friend! I really really like the composition of "Tea Ball 2" and "Ring of Fire." Maybe a bump in contrast and color vibrance (or if you're using Lightroom, a 5% increase in black clipping) would be all I'd suggest to try and get the colors to pop even more. "Softserve 2" is really cool, as well! Though with that one, maybe re-shot so the bulb is in focuse rather than the far edge of the reflector.

    Great stuff!

    Yeah, those three are untouched, and I imagine I could get them a bit more dramatic with some after effects. The softserve stuff I was just doing handheld in my office, and it was before I really started playing with the macro focus. If I were to do some prep work to set up shots, I imagine I could do some neat things.

    It's been pretty cool just looking at normal things with a more stylistic eye. I appreciate the push...

    Teeny, those are excellent! I especially like Ring of Fire, blue flame, and tea ball 2. Ignition is really cool also. The blue-flame and lighter effects looked sweet in all those. I'm WAY too much of a DSLR nOOb to critique, but I can give props. Great job!!
