    Image of the Week...Week#5

    Entry period will be from Sunday to Sunday, with this first one closing on the 21 July.
    Only two categories; Portrait and Landscape
    Portrait- Anything with eyes, people, animals
    Landscape- Country, town, city, sea, abstract, things (water drops, smoke, flowers, candles and so on)

    Each category will have a winner each week and this week judged hopefully by Jonathan Huyer, who I think lives in about the prettiest spot that I have seen.
    Then a poll to sort out monthly winners.

    Please supply a title for your image and what category you are entering in. Enter as many times as like, old or new images.
    Start posting your new shots here.

    I'll kick off with a shot from the weekend and my first solo texture effort after an intensive on-line tutorial by the super talented Denise, who demonstrated incredible patience as she walked me through the process. So thank you to her and I give a promise to keep trying and refining this new artistic skill.
    But to my oafish Portrait effort titled;
    It was only puppy love

    I did a bit of recent retouching on a favorite of mine from last year (can't help it I just keep coming back to it and playing with this and that). Anyway, this was an attempt to do a natural light portrait using the sun as a back light and using reflectors as the front lights. Kudos to my daughter for putting up with Dad and my experimenting.

    Title: Sunday Staredown

    This one is from last week as I was taking candid shots of my nieces and nephews playing in my parent's yard.

    Title: What? I'm not doing anything. (just before he tore up Grandma's flower bed)

    Portrait entry: Nice to see you. Saved this bee from drowning in the kids pool. While he was drying, he allowed some portraits. The rest on my blog.

    Hey I'd be delighted -- that will be quite an honour. But already I can tell that it will be a difficult job --- these shots are fantastic. The bar keeps rising each week!
