P52-9-23 Focus - Selective
Posted By: Tsukiouji, 08-09-2020, 03:12 PM

Pretty selfexplanatory theme.

Photos for the Week #23 competition are to be taken between Aug 10, 2020 and Aug 16, 2020.

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.

Since I'm testing out a Pentax-F 50/1.7 that I recently got and cleaned fungus from, I thought that would be a natural for this project, although I'm testing autofocus, I used a tripod and live view manual focus here. That just seems more proper on a tripod, to me anyway. Anyway, a longer telephoto or even a macro would have been better, here it is.

The submissions for this project are all excellent.

Tom, what a colorful photo. Those yellows really catch the eye.

cdw2000, those bleeding heart blossoms are beautiful, detailed and stand out nicely against the background bokeh.

Noel, excellent focus on the butterfly's head.

Tsukiouji, great composition, POV and backlighting on the flower.

It's a toss up between cdw and Noel. I could go with either one but since I must choose the nod goes to cdw2000. CDW ou get to pick the P52-9-24 winner.

Great photos everyone and thank you all for making my job very hard, as it should be.
