    Assignment 1 "Harmony" -- Congratulations Keith B!



    Hey! A poll in another thread showed some interest in doing similar themed assignments to compare, contrast, and critique. So here is the first idea. I am starting broad to see what kind of variety we will bring to the table. Future ones may be more specific.


    Assignment: A picture that shows "harmony." Harmony is defined as:
    <ul class="std" type="disc"][*]compatibility in opinion and action [*]the structure of music with respect to the composition and progression of chords [*]a
    harmonious state of things in general and of their properties (as of
    colors and sounds); congruity of parts with one another and with the
    whole [*]agreement of opinions [*]an agreeable sound property [/list]


    Please post EXIF data, the shot, and a shot of your setup in your post! Enjoy.





    CONGRATULATIONS KEITH B on winning this assignment! You can collect your prize of naming the next assignment by contacting me here, or in a private conversation.

    We have had a little over a week on this assignment, so entries are closed! Sean Setters and I narrowed it down to 4 pictures we thought best represented harmony. We each chose 5 and these 4 were the same. I am reposting the images below, along with the author's name. Poll at the bottom of this post. PLEASE VOTE. The winning picture gets to choose the theme for our next round. Voting ends Friday. The images are in no particular order.

    Taken with my XTI, 18-55mm kit lens, f/3.5 (the lens was stuck wide open), 18mm,ISO 100, 4/1000th. I used levels, tone curves,saturation, sharpening and thats it. Hopefully this picture show some harmony, the tracks lead the veiwers eye too the horizon.


    This picture is VERY SOFT from using f/3.5 and not having enough DOF,but youcan't see it at this low rez. I focused to infinity.

    Replica Indian tent frame, Ulm Pishkun State Park (now known as First Peoples Buffalo Jump State Park), Montana.


    Canon 40D, 100-400mm L at 400mm, f/5.6, 1/640, ISO 100. RAW processed in DPP, 'Landscape' setting, contrast boosted.


    The Montana landscape in this region, mostly high prairie, is flat, almost endless and produces a true 'big sky'. Today, of course, there are towns and buildings but before then, when the buffalo roamed and the only people were the native Americans, dwellings such as these served as shelter. I find it hard to conceive of a more harmonious interaction between man and nature as represented by these skeletons of branches and twigs.
