#492 - New life
Posted By: RGlasel, 03-30-2020, 07:09 PM

I think a little bit of hope would be appropriate, I'm looking for photos that express the hope that comes from new life. New life can come from old things, or a living thing can take the place of something that is dying; life can flourish in a harsh environment or transform our surroundings with energy and vitality. I wish I had more lively photos in my digital library, the examples below are the best that I could come up with, but feel free to expand on this theme with lively pictures that give you new hope.

This challenge will close on April 7th about 6PM Saskatchewan Time (-600 UTC).

The fine print:
Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

Rules
1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax/Ricoh (DSLR) camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge

A cygnet bravely crossing the buslane. I was watching out for him and herding him back to the grass, so nothing happened fortunately.

After an initial flurry, this challenge appears to have dropped off the Pentaxforums radar. Even though there are several excellent entries so far, we can always use more.

Flowers in the garden

I'm confined at home and I'm discovering my garden.

With my Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 35mm F2.4 MC and a little patience to focus manually I'm getting these photos.
