P52-9-20 Theme: Landscapes
Posted By: Tsukiouji, 07-05-2020, 04:08 PM

One of the most flexible themes, highly permissive on subjects and techniques. Macro landscapes are fine too.

Photos for the Week #20 competition are to be taken between Jul 6, 2020 and Jul 12, 2020

Tips and references:
Famous Landscape Photographers and Their Photos (classic!)

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 52-9 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 non Pentax cameras are allowed.
Cameras may be SLRs, DSLRs, Point & Shoot, Medium Format, et cetera. But no phones, please.
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.

Can I use my old photos? Or do you need to take new photos?

Hi Martin, the idea behind the Project 52 challenges is to deliberately practice different types of photography every week. Keeping up with that schedule is proving to be difficult for some of us, but the intention is to develop our photographic skills in a non-competitive format. I'm not the host for this series of Project 52 challenges, so I don't set the rules, but I try to take new photographs for each challenge, instead of going through my library. The prize for "winning" a particular challenge is getting to pick the winner for the following challenge, which may or may not be considered to be a valuable prize.

Not close to suburban rural landscape. North Saskatchewan River, taken from the Petrofka Bridge. I should have taken this early in the morning instead of a couple of hours before sunset, there was haze in the air and a CPL filter could only help so much.

Landscapes are always better with a bit of water in them. Nice one.

I hadn't thought about it, but you are right. Thanks for your kind comments.

I have taken a few landscapes this week, in fact just returned from taking some sunsets tonight. This one is from Friday morning, I got up early to get the dawn shots, but this one is more of a sunrise.

Well, i think it is time to pick a winner for this challenge, thank you to djb47, noelcmn and ramseybuckeye for your very fine entries and for keeping this challenge going. I'm going to select Noel's Clouds at Zoo Lake, I like different and a low key landscape, with indirect sunlight from clouds in an otherwise very dark scene is definitely different. On to the next challenge P52-9-21 Technique: Frame it (naturally) - PentaxForums.com

Not too late to participate, this is an excellent photo. I really like how the meadow and the cliffs fill the foreground, pushing the river into the background, giving a sense of depth to a wide angle shot. I noticed it was taken with a Fuji X-E1 (any make of camera is suitable for these challenges) and am wondering if the warm green tones are from the camera or your post-processing?

thanks RGlasel, quite right this is the Fuji X-E1, for post processing I used Lightroom
