While on my lunch stroll in the parking lot at work I saw this large red leaf on my car. It pays to always have a camera with you!

Week 4 Winners (Streetview)

Thanks to all who entered a photo in this week’s P52 theme, Architecture Streetview. Here are my comments for each photo.

Rense – This is a great photo! I enjoy the leading lines from the modern sky scrapers, power lines, and the railroad tracks. The gentlemen in the photo is probably wondering what happened to the old days as well.

Tamia – I enjoy your photo for its low street perspective and angle. The sepia color conversion also gives the town that “old vintage” feel. Your comments about the abundant resources of beer, smokes, soda and snacks remind me of some of the towns outside of Philadelphia…

Jheu02 – Nice capture of down town Winston Salem. The lack of people in the photo is a plus, gives off that calm city feel. I think you did a great job on the sharpening, not to soft, not to sharp, just right!

Danloc78 – Nice shot Dan! Philadelphia is a great place for a photographer and I think this photo is an excellent example. This photo has great architecture, and the evening colors make the photo pop. Great use of the slow shutter speed as well.

Slinco – Your photo sure does give off the peaceful feel! I enjoy the building to the left, nice vintage architecture. I think many of us can relate to your comments about skipping breakfast and shower. It’s the photog way to act when inspiration shows its face.

Jmschrei – Nice photo! Your entry is satisfactory indeed for the theme. Did you use a wide angle lens for this capture? I enjoy the wide view of the street and condos. Nice colors as well in the sky and trees.

Bbluesmen – This capture reminds me of a refreshing toast to your favorite city, Cheers! I enjoy the OOF city in the background, and cool selective color conversion with the blue cup.

JanVan – This is a nice neighborhood capture! Great job at composing the pic, using the trees to frame the row homes.

Iris – The B&W conversion was a great move. I think it makes the clouds and sky look dynamic. I also enjoy the old school architecture of the labor houses. Nice Pic!

Ovim – I enjoy the old wooden architecture of the homes, reminds me of beach homes here on the east coast. Sukkavartaankatu is quite the street name!

And the winners are!!!

Third – Iris


Second – Rense


First – Dan



Thanks to all the participants! Dan you have the honor of being the judge for the next theme, OOF.

PROJECT 52-2-28 Leading Lines WINNERS
Posted By ceericks
Replies: 12
Views: 1,527
First off, thanks to everyone who entered a photo this week. You’re all winners in my book!
Judging the P52 themes is tough for me, as Im no professional photog. These are just my opinions. Critiquing your great entries help me become a better photographer. I am learning what to look for when I am composing my photos. Now on to the judging.

My Opinions (in the order photos were posted)
Ramseybuckeye – Nice shot and great use of the Super Takumar 135/3.5. My eyes immediately followed the very symmetrical power line towers. The fog also gives your photo a mystical feel, wondering how far the power line towers continue into the horizon.

Ash – This is a nice entry as well. There are two sets of leading lines in this photo, the sidewalk cutting through the grass, and the light posts. Looking at the person in the photo makes one wonder how long has he been walking this curve? Is he on a curvy path, trying to straighten his life out?? This photo is food for thought. Nice capture.
The photo is a bit noisy, but it doesn’t hurt the overall mood of the photo.

Atpudate – Thanks for the nice cold reminder of winter! I think the exposure is dead on, for probably being a bright cloudy day. There is a lot going on in your photo. It took me a minute to try to figure out if the leading lines are from the stream or the bridge in the background.

Jheu02 – The classic railroad tracks leading line photo. Nice B&W conversion on the photo to give the pic an old vintage feel. My eyes immediately follow the tracks and lead me to wonder. I have a minor suggestion; maybe crop the photo a pinch tighter to eliminate the trees on the outer edges of the photo. Another thought, I was thinking of doing a railroad tracks photo. Many other photogs were probably thinking of taking the same shot as well. Keep that in mind when taking classic photos, look for that extra “umph” to make yours stand out among the rest.

Wllm – Man, fog must be in the forecast pretty frequently over there in Italy! Despite the fog, great way of using one of mother natures perils. The road is the primary leading line in the photo with the trees being secondary. I am immediately drawn to both of them, as they lead me down to the person walking towards an arch way. This photo has a lot of depth, and tells a great story. Nice work.

Daccon – Yes, the great white north indeed! The end of the fence serves as your leading lines, which is yet another reminder of the cold winter were having! This is a very simple photo, but sometimes simple is very effective. I like the idea, but the photo is missing something to give it that “umph”.

Tamia – Nice idea here with this capture. I like the use of the animal tracks as your leading lines. Not all leading lines have to be straight lines. Nice conversion as well, it’s tough trying to get the correct exposure while shooing in the bright snow. Maybe a lil cropping on the right of the photo to rid of the hump in the bottom right would have been ok. Overall, nice pic, I like it!

Mithrandir – Great use of the fence to capture the theme topic. Im sure people driving by were wondering “what in the world is that guy doing?” You also took advantage of an overcast day to get a nice exposure. Although the fence is the main subject in the photo, while following my eye tends to drift to the pile on the left. Further up the fence I am stopped by the red gates. There is a lot going on in this photo that takes away from the main subject, the fence.

Bramela – This is a different interpretation on leading lines. Your photo is very symmetrical, repeating patterns throughout the photo. There is also a great deal of depth, birds in the foreground, chains and poles in the middle, which point to the body of water and ship out in the horizon. I feel like the left side, probably due to the sun, is a bit overexposed, but other than that Im a fan of this photo. Nice work.

Cyy47 – Nice pic, yet another great use of a fence as the leading line. The fence shadow and the roadway also serve as leading lines to me. Maybe a tighter crop at the top of the photo could help a bit. My eye follows the fence, then jumps off the fence to the top of the wall in the background. Overall nice pic.

Nomad – This is a great start to a new exercise for you. I think you are interpreting the topic quite well. There is nothing but lines in your photo! From the stools and chairs, to the tile on the wall, pattern on the floor, and even the ceiling, they all lead to the door. I almost wish the coats on the coat racks, and people on the right were not there, but those are things we cannot control in public environments. I have only one gripe, I feel like the photo is a bit underexposed, and could probably tweak the saturation and contrast levels in pp to liven up the photo a bit. Overall you’re off to a good start.

Iris – Nice capture. The pathway coming off the bridge serves as a great leading line, headed right at the group of people. Nice exposure as well. As I follow your pathway I become a little distracted with the light poles to the left. That first one really grabs my attention. The photo is also a bit busy, with the poles, people and building.

Third Place - Nomad


Second Place - Bramela


First Place - Wllm

Congrats to Dave and Iris and Thanks to Rense for the 1st place nod. There is a little story behind the photo. I took the photo in the parking lot at my job. I happen to be standing next to a co workers car. While in the middle of composing the pic, a lady comes out and says "excuse me, can I help you? What are you doing to my tire??" She thought I was a tow truck worker or something, or a thief trying to steal a Jeep Cherokee tire and wheel! Anyway, I explained myself and let her know I work here and im taking a pic for a contest. After going back and forth for a min, she realizes she knows me, and wishes me luck:lol:. The things us photographers go through to get a pic. I think im going to frame a copy of my pic and send it to her..
