PROJECT 52-11-12- NATURE- Animals-Pets
Posted By: noelcmn, 11-28-2022, 11:58 AM

Welcome to the 11th Edition of Project 52, which I will be hosting for the year. Thanks to djb47 for hosting Project 52-10.
Let's get some Motivation
I have participated in a few Project 52 kind of thing and there are plenty out there. One of the many aspects that have come to the fore is the value of participating, one of them being how much you learn-about technique, out of the box thinking, getting to know your camera's potential and a host of other values. WHY NOT JOIN THE PROJECT! Besides some discipline, there is not much else required except if you are chosen the winner, in which case you judge the next weeks challenge.

Themes covered will include but not limited to:
Colour
Architecture
DOF
Focus
Exposure
Landscape
Lighting
Perspective
Shutter
Subject- Multi-subject challenge
People
Ideas
Shapes
Home
Animals
Seasonal
Leisure


Rules
1. Anyone and everyone interested in the challenge is eligible. The goal continues to be to 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. The theme/sub-concepts are chosen by the facilitator every week. You are only
required to submit a photo taken during the week of the challenge.
3. Post your single picture in Project 52-11 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. And we will include images taken with phones as well.
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. It is up to the discretion of the current week's
Judge to accept or decline early/late entries i.e. a day earlier or a day late. Usually there is some flexibility here to allow as many entrants as possible. BUT
PLEASE DO NOT POST IMAGES TAKEN DAYS OR WEEKS OUTSIDE THE PERIOD OF THE CHALLENGE. TRY TO KEEP IT AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE
TO THE TIME FRAME. SOME FLEXIBILITY IS ALLOWED (after all life comes before photography) FOR OUT OF DATE/LATE SUBMISSIONS.
8. Additional images are welcome, but please keep them to a minimum. If more than one image is posted, make sure you identify your entry for the challenge.
Additional images should also please comply with rule 1 and rule 7.
9. Any picture taken from thread start date to listed closing date is acceptable.
10. The WINNER of each weekly challenge is the JUDGE of the next weeks Project 52-11 and may not participate in the challenge.
11. The host/facilitator (in this case noelcmn) may participate in the challenge, provided he/she is not the judge.

Our theme is still NATURE, and this week it is yet another popular subject for Photographers- Pets. Of any kind. According to Wikipedia, there are some 755 million pets worldwide. That equates to about 1 pet per 10.5 people. This will be a tough challenge, and don't forget, the range of pets is extensive, besides dogs and cats, there are birds, reptiles, fish, Amphibians, Spiders, Rabbits and of course some wild animals. We will be quite happy to see your pet Bengal Tiger . And if like me, you do not own a pet, Pet Shops are wonderful places to exercise your photographic skills.

THIS CHALLENGE WILL CLOSE ON SUNDAY 4TH DECEMBER 2022 AT MIDNIGHT IN YOUR TIME ZONE.

Some lovely stuff for inspiration here: https://expertphotography.com/the-complete-guide-to-pet-photography-87-tips/

And I like the use of Black or White backgrounds in this gallery: https://peterdriesselphotography.com/portfolio-items/pet-photographer/

Good luck!

Once again using one from my gallery

Better lighting with some sun coming in the window, rather than just artificial light at night. Trying to get her to be still enough to get pretty much any other pose is tough, she always tries to get in my face.

Thank you all for your submissions and a fantastic array of images, not an easy one to judge this week. I am struck with the notes of emotion in all of these images, which only makes the judging exercise even more difficult. The last two entries evoking a sense of sadness, and then there is joy on the two before that, and perhaps anger from Lulu. The winning entry goes to Kawai and his/her owner jcdoss. The focus on those expressive eyes is a winner for me, though turbo_bird comes close too. The inclusion of that paw is magical.

Great choice Noel for a great variety of photo’s. Maybe just for your relief, Lulu was not angry, she was just yawning after her zoomies.
