52-2-49 Subject: Water
Posted By: mithrandir, 06-10-2010, 06:37 PM

For week 49 we again concentrate on subjects. After Air, the next most important element for our survival is Water. This week we explore all that water means to us. Let's see how many different ways we can capture this subject.

(Pictures for the week 49 competition are to be taken and posted between 20100613 and 20100620, so from June 13 - June 20).

NOTE: We have two Seasonal competitions planned for the last two weeks of year two. You may take pictures for these anytime between 20090705 and the posting dates of 20100704 or 20100711. This way you can include your favorite holiday or season whenever it occurs during the year.

Rules:
1. Anyone and everyone who is interested in eligible. The goal continues to be
have fun and share comments, concepts, insights, and techniques with fellow
Pentaxians.
2. Each week will feature a Theme and Sub-concept for you to explore.
3. Post your single picture in Project 52-2 thread for the week. Explain what
motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly
theme.
4. Some post-processing is OK (adjusting white balance, exposure, color
saturation), but let's try to stay away from heavily PP'ed images here. Try to
keep the creativity to photographic techniques and the captures themselves.
5. Since this project is about technique, and not camera, shots taken by nonPentax cameras are allowed. Cameras can be SLRs, DSLRs, Point & Shoot and Medium Format.
6. There is one “Theme Concept” labeled “black and white,” but feel free to post
black and white, sepia, monotone, etc., for any of the other themes.
7. The picture you post should be taken during the week in which the theme is active to be eligible for judging.
8. Any picture taken from 20090705 to listed closing date is acceptable for the two “Seasonal” competitions – Projects 52-2-51 & 52.

This is a hidden stream I stumbled across this morning. I managed to catch the gentle movement of the water along its path.

Took the ferry from Helsinki to Tallinn this weekend. The clouds were really low and it was raining a little bit so basically I was surrounded with water.

Not really an entry...

This is not an official entry... not to be judged. This is one of those "saturation station" things at a local amusement park. I was trying to run this at as slow a shutter speed as possible, but it was very sunny and the best I could manage was 1/30th.
