How’s it going?
Trust you had a great weekend
For us it was a relaxing weekend making the most of the weather with friends staying over on Friday, out for lunch on Saturday and then to Woburn Safari Park on Sunday for a picnic and to take some more pictures for my animal project…Perfect!
Talking of Woburn Safari Park it was a totally different experience this time as the Pride of Lions there were on the move and walked straight past our car; a stunning sight to see making the thought of going to Zimbabwe next year and seeing them in the wild even more exciting.
Anyway back to today and to kick the week off I’ve the Winners from my Brighton Photo Walk last weekend to announce, so here goes…
PICTURE HUNT – londonbackpackr
Winner of the Picture Hunt goes to londonbackpackr (Flickr Username) and Lord only knows how all the pictures were found because some of them were quite obscure.
The prize here is a Full Length Downloadable Tutorial from my web store…
BRIGHTON – Lee Gorecki (Pixel Trap)
Another of the Competitions I ran was to take a picture that said Brighton and the picture uploaded to Flickr that stood out to me was this one by Lee Gorecki (Pixel Trap)
A great shot here by Lee considering it was taken during a very bright sunny day and using a Lee Filters BIG Stopper without it’s holder.
Lee wins the 1420 VAL Spigot designed and donated by Ian Pack of the Light Side Facebook Group [Link]
STREET PORTRAIT – ruth_gord
The picture that took my eye for the Street Portrait Competition was this one taken by Gordon (Flickr username: ruth_gord)
The pose and what the guy in the picture was wearing made me immediately think of it as a CD Cover; great shot and observation.
Gordon wins the Colour Magic Saturates Pack of Gels donated by Lee Filters.
It’s been great looking at all the pictures that have been uploaded to the Flickr Page [Link
] from the day; it’s seeing how people in the same location at the same time see things differently.
So on that note there’s a couple of Honourable Mentions I wanted to share with you…
I absolutely love this photograph posted by Eddie.younan (Flickr Username); perfect timing, framing and the Black & White conversion works a treat!
The picture below posted by Ryan Prince is inspired by Scott Kelby’s recent “The World on a White Seamless” series of travel photographs where the background is over exposed in such a way that it goes completely white and I must say Ryan nailed it with this shot of the Pier ruins.
Way to go Ryan!
So if you’re one of the winners please do get in touch with me by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org so I can sort out getting the prizes to you.
And finally my thanks again to everyone that came along and made it such a great day where lots of new friends were made and looking at the Flickr page [Link], lots of GREAT pictures were taken too.
Here’s to the next one!
