    NOW VOTING--Assignment 2020-#1 "Around the House"

    Please select the winner from the following for Assignment 2020 #1: Around the House


    A description: We are asked to stay home. But that does not mean we cannot take pictures. Pick any subject: children, spouses, pets, boots, flowers, landscapes, the moon, clouds, sunrises, sunsets, etc. It just needs to have been taken
    at your house, property, apartment, tent, RV or whichever domicile you find yourself sheltering.

    The Finalists:

    clemmb "Tremble". I really liked both entries, but opted for this one as the warm tones and simplified yet focus subject gave me a peaceful and nostalgic feeling.





    Zach "Red Hot": This image caught my eye with several of the photographic elements such as the contrast and vibrant colors fitting the punch and power of the image's subject illustrating a story well.




    Joel Eade "Downy Woodpecker": So many great images, the great pose with the slight backlight is what caught my eye compared to the other images. Overall, well captured.




    Jayson "Venus and Pleiades": A tough choice between this and the "having fun..." shot. While both are creative, my first instincts went to "Venus and Pleiades," not only catching my eye as a great shot but also inspiring me to try some astro while at home myself. Well composed with some nice creative choices.




    Minerve101 "Surprised": Loved the use of negative space and the tiny snow flakes floating down which created a peaceful feel for me. I also ran out trying to capture the fresh snow on our spring flowers but none turned out as well as this. Nicely done!





    The poll will be open for 5 days. Good luck!

    Thanks. That is Etta James, or Etta. I should really be taking more pictures of her and even our cat (Stella). Maybe in the next month.

    We had a nice snowfall last night, so I thought I'd get out for a bit of a walk. The road to the Canmore Nordic Centre is closed to traffic, to try and dissuade people from going there. However you're still allowed on the trails, so dedicated folks are walking up there with their skis.
