pffft, i'm taking one freakin picture.

defeats the purpose of taking 3 different ones and just laying the side by side.

The badger obviously has something specific in mind, so I'm allowing the triptych. I guess he's right... if the triptych sucks, no one will vote for it.

I'm just hoping we get a couple submissions this weekend. I didn't want to make a super hard contest, but I figured this would be a step up from the norm. Yeah, it requires some thought, but that's the fun part, imo.

Plus leaving both options open will allow for a broader spectrum for more people to enter and thus more diverse voting options.

But I see your point with the triptych...although I think it would be harder to take 3 separate pics, of 3 separate things, that begin with the same letter, AND on top of that make them relate to each other...unlessss you have a great idea already in your head and you want to share it with us?
Not saying we would steal you IP anything.
not sharing just yet but I should be able to have it shot today or tomorrow so I'll post then.

So the triptych with a view of my car pic that was oriented the mirrored way of the camera was my plan, couldn't light the car tonight without lighting everything else outside so it looked like ass, living in the 3rd biggest city in the country has it's drawbacks - there isn't anywhere dark enough to shoot something like this. Anyway, still happy with how it came out, tried to bookend the 2 photos to enclose it a little.

I MIGHT try to redo the car shot again before the deadline so we'll see if it happens.

So you have great taste in camera equipment, excellent taste in cars, and ......Starbucks coffee.

Cue the Sesame Street gang...."One of these things is not like the others..."

Just be careful. The contents of that cup may be hot. If you didn't have to walk too far with it.

Well the first entry is up. Guess I need to get going. I'm finally beginning to feel human again after battling a nasty cold this week. The last three days have been the best weather of the year so far and I've been laid up. Maybe I can get some shooting done tomorrow.

not sure i'll be in on this action this week, just not sure when i'll be home... I'm at the girlfriends house right now, and headed to Montreal Tuesday, and hoping to have my new ride, then, the girlfriend leaves town and i'm stuck at her place for a few days watching her dogs... (this might be my only opportunity while she's away and i'm bored.)

Time will tell!

shot with the 50mm 1.4

You can tell the coffee one is @ f/1.4 but the camera one is at like f/12 so the barrel would be in focus.

new gear working as well as hoped?

it's neat to see the light source off to the side, adds some depth to the picture.
