Lady in Red: Mrs PJ outside Tiffany's in Florence today. She was not allowed to go in with her credit card! Thought I would try the splash of red on grey approach. Just a holiday snap but I thought it turned out OK. Panasonic Lumix DMC-LF1, f3.2, 1/320 sec, ISO 80, focal length 10 mm (49 mm effective FF focal length). The DMC-LF1 will shoot RAW but when I am travelling I am not able to process files. The Panasonic has an "iintelligent auto" mode which does a good job anyway.

It is surprising how difficult it can be to get nice bright colours. I have been walking in Tuscany and Umbria for the last ten days. It has been quite cloudy and the light has been flat, if not actually dull. Very disappointing. But today - last day in Florence - we happened on a procession entering the Baptistry to celebrate the Feast of St John. I fought through a sea of selfie-sticks to grab a few. Yes, it is summer in Florence and the colours were out. The first shot even includes a pic of a pic on an Iphone . Panasonic Lumix DMC-LF1, f2.8, 1/250 sec, ISO 200, focal length 7 mm (34 mm effective FF focal length) and f2.8, 1/250 sec, ISO 125, focal length 6 mm (31 mm effective FF focal length).

Here's my third then . Early morning hike a couple of years ago. What a peaceful morning it was.

It looks better in LR. Mind you I wasn't shooting RAW back then, so I'm sure I lost detail in the process.

In Tuscany and Umbria, one would indeed expect rich and warm colours.
At least you found this procession

This contest is now closed.

I'll get back to you with the results later. Probably this evening.
This is not going to be easy

Well, the "jury" is out.

It was indeed difficult to choose (one of my weak points).

Since I set a theme, the fact of how good the entries follow this theme is a welcome help in coming to a decision.

First I'd like to thank and congratulate all that participated!

As I normally do, I chose based on how an image "speaks" to me. Very subjective and no indication whatsoever on the photo technical merits of the images that didn't make my selection.

A special mention for the hummingbird and act of kindness by wissink




In 3rd place, I saw the warm colours of smf's flower




In 2nd place, I picked barondlas rainbow colours so wonderfully aligned.




and as winner, the glorious colour composition of Jacquot




Looking forward to your p&s competion, Jacquot!
