Project 52-10-49: Uncommon
Posted By: djb47, 08-12-2022, 09:24 AM

The dictionary defines uncommon as unusual; infrequent; rare, remarkable; strange, unique. For this project your image should incorporate one or more of these adjectives to make your image stand out from the ordinary everyday image. Even every day objects can be made to look unique by using some of the techniques we've covered in previous project. The choice is yours.

Photos for Project 52-10-49 are to be taken and posted between Aug 12- Aug 18.

Upcoming Projects:
P52-10-50 Food 8/19
P52-10-51 Upside Down 8/26
P52-10-52 Your Coice 9/2

1. Anyone and everyone who is interested is eligible. The goal continues to be
have fun and share comments, concepts, insights, and techniques with fellow
2. Each week will feature a Theme and Sub-concept for you to explore.
3. Post your single picture in Project 52-10 thread for the week. Explain what
motivated you to take the picture or how 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, etc. 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

Due to wartime needs of copper for use in ammunition and other military equipment during WWII, the US Mint researched ways to limit copper usage. The one-cent coin was minted in zinc coated steel This alloy caused the new coins to be magnetic and 13% lighter. Though no longer in circulation and despite their unique appearance, the majority of these coins aren't valuable. This is because many of them were minted.

Here's my "Uncommon". If you try to find this Whiskey, you'll only find it with the label "ONW" due to some lawsuit the distillery had against them. Don't remember the details, as it was several years ago that I visited and did a tasting. Needless to say, a bottle of this, with this label, is pretty rare now as they weren't allowed even when I visited, to distribute their product with this label. Anywho, the family has a long history in Whiskey, dating back to ...well, go to their website. This is the resurrected brand, third batch produced, 366th bottle. I thought it deserved a little monochrome treatment, though I like the color version too.

Looks good in monochrome and home grown too. Need to look for some ONW next time I head out to the ABC store.

Empty pool filling with mineral water.

The uncommon here is that I have never seen this process before and the horizon line is far from the true
