52-7-22-Natural - Go Green
Posted By: scomatic, 06-02-2015, 05:56 PM

Welcome to PROJECT 52-7 for the year 2015.

PROJECT 52-7-22-Natural - Go Green

Images for Project 52-7-21 are to be taken between the 02 June 2015 Tuesday and 08 June 2015.

1. Anyone and everyone interested in the challenge is 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 52-7 thread for the week. Explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly
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 non Pentax cameras are allowed.Cameras may be SLRs, DSLRs, Point & Shoot,
Medium Format, et cetera.
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 thread start date to listed closing date is acceptable. You may request to submit a photo outside of the time frame, but its
acceptance is dependent on the judge of the week. Please try and keep to within a day or two (either way) of the week. This is to make allowances for
those that would like to participate, but for one or other reason, are not able to do so during the time given for the challenge, such as illness, weather,
travelling etc.
9. The WINNER of each weekly challenge is the JUDGE of the next week's Project 52-7
10. JUDGE may participate the challenge, but the picture of JUDGE will be comment by 2nd and 3rd WINNER, and there is no podium place for JUDGE's picture. *** New Rules ***
11. The Facilitator (in this case scomatic) may participate in the challenge, provided he/she is not the judge.
12. Closing date for the challenge is Monday at midnight in your time zone, this will encourage people to snap the picture during weekend and post it up on next days. Late entries are accepted but subject to the acceptance by the current weeks JUDGE. ** Amendment **

JUDGE need to provide either with Option A or Option B or Both AB options criteria when during JUDGEMENT *** New Rules ***:

OPTION A (Just provide 1-10 point on each criteria and average out is the overall point)
Technical criteria
- Exposure Focus/sharpness
- Colour and/or tonal rendition
- Contrast
- Lighting

Visual and aesthetic criteria
- Framing and choice of viewpoint
- Background
- Design elements and principles
- Visual impact

- Emotion / Mood /Feeling
- Relevance

Viewer’s response
- Excitement
- Interest

OPTION B (Good / Bad comment)
the good: Composition is perfect, I like your lighting. blah blah blah
the bad: I think leveling the horizon would be better, the blown out highlights on top left are distracting to me. blah blah blah.

Green - the first thing that springs to mind is plants, leaves but you've already done that!!
Green is everywhere, it is a neutral colour that people use because of it, I mean, yahoo answers is green!
Perhaps you could take photos of all the green things you can find, or different shades of green. Or perhaps use green in some way in your photos.
Show yours what it is like from a greener perspective hehe ...

Sorry this week we have no tips for u all...


This week, we have “green” on the brain! From shades of deep emerald to the yellow tones of spring green, we hope you will enjoy being inspired the beautiful sessions we are featuring here.

Good Luck

In the Green Swamp (FL)

Entered the swamp today for the photo challenge, with my K-s2 and WG3. This WG3 photo may be the best, of the Withlacoochee River which originates in the swamp. I'm standing in the river with my weatherproof Pentaxes and I'm cool! (90 deg and muggy otherwise.) This photo seems smoother than the ks2's which seemed grainy; I wonder why.
