Arpe, you only have to buy glasses from Specsavers to call yourself a Pentaxian again.

Winners-Weekly Challenge 150: A Day In The Life

Thank you all who sent in their entries. I know the theme would produce a wide variete of photos and as always the quality is very high. To judge a competition like this is very hard and any of the photos could have been the winner. In the end I have to choose and here are the winners starting from 3rd place.

3rd Place. Bbluesman. This is a wonderful shot with great colours that shows the mundane side to our daily lifes.



2nd Place. Wllm. This shot drags my eyes in to the photo. Fantastic shot with great use of a short shutter speed. The bluriness leads my eyes along the road. Great.



And now the winner. 1st Place. Rense. I came back to this photo every time I looked through the entries. This is a right place in right time photo that is very well done. The people on the scooter in the daily traffic and the face reflected in the mirror is absolutely spot on. Perfect in black and white.


In order of submission.
jmschrei- A good way to test a memorycard. The colurs of the cars and the blue sky turns it in to a photo of a nice bright day.
Tamia- A great shot that shows a normal day for many people. I like the mirror image to the right that makes the place look wider.
Kryosphinx- Talk about leading lines. Great shot that fits theme really well. Great in black and white.
atupdate- I like everything about this photo. The boys with the glove ready to join the big guys. Well composed.
Xjjohnno- Nice photo where the mans old fashion clothes together with the trick bike really want me to know whats going on.
Jheu02- Good black and white photo of the musician. I like the grain in the shot.
Oldschool- Nice way to spend a Day in the Life. Good action shot that was well timed.
casil403- The colours and presentation are supurb. Great shot of a great subject.
Bramela- This photo is perfect in black and white. A great shot that shows that a Day in the Life can be enjoyable.
Virgilr- A very nice way to spend part of your day. Beautiful colours and nicely composed.

Thank you everyone and I hand over the next challange to Rense.

Weekly Challenge 150: A Day In The Life
It is getting very hard to come up with a theme that is not already used. So when I heard The Beatles A Day In The Life I got the idea about photos from our normal day to day lives. Let us see photos from your normal day, at home, at work, taking the dog for a walk or whatever.

Ladies and Gentlemen let us see a day in your life.

Challenge ends next Wednesday 10 November at midnight

The fine print....
1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread, and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose 1 of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus a day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax camera will do or a Samsung DSLR.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.

If I understand you right you have to use f3.5 because it is to dark and that gives you a to shallow dof. If that is the case then a faster lens like the one Arpe suggested will give you an even shallower dof if you use f2.8.

What ISO are you using at the moment? I would have thought that ISO 800 should get you enough light to get a shutter speed of 1/125 or 1/250 at f3.5.

If you can get close to the riders why not pick up a cheap M50mm 1.7 from trademe and try it out. Five meters away it will give you a dof of 0.67m at f1.7 and 1.13m at f2.8.

I watched a bit of the Phoenix game today and you would have got some great photos from that game. It was more waterpolo then soccer. Looking at the forecast you should be able to get some nice muddy shots.

Nice photos you have from the walk. Music 2, Music 8 and Broken Palace are my favourites but all of them are good. I think B&W works best with street photo portraits.

I think that is a very good idea. You have some outstanding photos on your site and keeping down the numbers make sense. If you replace photos with new work only replace a couple of photos at a time. Are you able to see the most viewed photos? They are the ones to keep.
