Picture of the Week 89 : 16 Nov - 29 Nov.
Posted By: Bramela, 11-22-2009, 03:31 AM

Welcome to Picture of the Week #89 16th - 29th Nov.

I have accepted to host this time round.

The standard has continued to be very good with many submissions, and I hope we can maintain that over the next week or so. I have no doubt we will.


Again same rules and really other than time frames there are no rules

1) No theme just your favorite stuff.
2) Let's keep it to about 4-6 images per post just so the thread doesn't get too big each week.
3) Any Pentax camera is fine, film, P&S, DSLR (or Samsung DSLR)
4) Date : Sunday 11/8//2009 to Sunday - Sunday 11/22/2009. Enter anything you shot last week or during this current week until the thread closes.


Previous hosts: (each one is a hotlink to that POTW thread to look past at the previous 86 weeks. Peter started the links, I know it had to be a lot of editing!!

I have not been all that active over the past couple of weeks for a number of reasons, but I hope to put that right rather quickly.

Two from me to start things off:




and for something a bit way out, (PP fun)

Waaaay tooo early on a Sunday morning we were awakened by a racket on our street. We live on the same street as the Town Hall. So the Olympic Torch relay was going up the street. Very cool to see the excitement and the actual torch. The security was really incredible. You'd think this was important or something....

I shouda used a higher ISO, it was dark. They really don't go very far. I heard around 200-300 meters each. That seems about right. Considering the border with the USA is 6500 Kms and the extreme width is 9300 Kms, that's a lot of runners. It's the longest torch relay in the history of the Olympics.

Edit, for some reason the site resizing really makes these soft. I'll have to maybe reload the originals later.

The runners hand off the flame here.


The lone runner going down the street.

A good start to the week.

Jezza , they are a couple of incredible macros. And the chopper shots are very well caught.

Peter : Great shots of the Olympic Torch. In your own street? That is remarkable and a real stroke of luck for a photographer.

Regarding that "way out" shot of mine. Actually its a shot of shadows cast by pillars of a building. I was asked to produce a real "Modern Art" type shot in vivid colour, preferably red, to be enlarged in print for a buyer. This was the end result and they were totally thrilled with it. (Actually not really my taste)

Cool, Peter, I guess the more runners, the better.

Here's my resident mockingbird, always ready to have his picture took.

I went to a photo class taught by a friend of my wife at Harvard. Two pics, one taken during class, the other on the way home. Sigma mini-wide II--excellent lens.

A couple shots from me. The trees were ones I didn't enter in Mel's contest and then some from a high school play of Alice in Wonderland which were MF, no flash. The first two were with the A50 at f/1.4 and 2.2 respectively. Third shot with my Soligor 135mm f/2.8 wide open.

Don't use imgwide for narrow images

Well done to all, so far. There are some great shots up already.

Plankton : Nicely done shots of the matches. Particularly like #1

Dave : Your shot of the Mocking Bird is very well taken. The composition and the background are excellent. Very well done!

Tom : Great action shots. Beautiful colour. Shots you will keep for many years I reckon.

Stefan : The moody colour of your shots is very appealing. I really like the shot of the chairs. So often we miss shots like that by just walking past them, but in the most ordinary things there are, so often. many aspects for a good photo. Well done!

John : the tree competition just finished Seriously though, I really like your tree shots. Well taken. The other shots are a very good record of a special occasion. You have done well. Thanks for sharing.

Launch a children's clothing line and did some shots of kids in the samples.

Never worked with kids before and they were amatuers. Found I could control them by turning my posing commands into a game of Simon Says. Good time had by all!









Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Yanks!
