Finally got a decent sunset today.2 14 March 2015
This is a little different perspective of a sunset, but I found the cloud formation to be rather interesting, so I decided to share it.
Dead Horse Point state park in Utah.
Taken with a point a shoot, one handed through an open car sunroof whilst driving in Arizona.2 11 March 2015
OK. So I found another one. This sunset was taken on Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. (I just read John's reply to Mona's question - just as well I stopped posting when I did)1 11 March 2015
It's good to see a few more entries come in. I found this one of the end of a day fishing on the beautiful Wagonga Inlet, Narooma. (I'm fortunate - the sun sets every day where I live).1 11 March 2015
This is a photo I took a while back. We have had really gray skies everyday here, so I decided to post this one. Looks like stiff competition, but I think this is such a good idea I hope it is successful. Thank you John!2 10 March 2015
Just a newbie at photography and actually thought this shot was somewhat decent considering Im still trying to get my manual mode down, ha ha :) I called this one "beauty is all around us"3 10 March 2015
Shot this last year Oct while on Holiday on Boscastle. I think it was just before I joined Focussion actually, what are the chances. It's an HDR and I wasn't anywhere near as knowledgeable as I am now with regards to using my camera (I hope).1 10 March 2015
Well - to keep the momentum going (heh!! ;) ) - here is one of my sunsets. this is Fuji Velvia 100PROF color slide film, taken with one of my Nikon's (I think my Nikon FA) scanned on a Minolta/Konica film scanner @ 5400 DPI...2 9 March 2015
Hi John. I took this shot on the last holiday I had with my wife before she fell ill (not looking for a sympathy vote) It was in 2002 and I have no idea what camera I took it with. The caravan roof in the bottom of the shot is probably the one we stayed in. Hele Bay is on the North Devon Coast a few miles from Coombe Martin2 9 March 2015
Hi John. Congratulations on this initiative. I think it's a great idea. This photo was taken from our bungalow in Aitutaki, Cook Islands in 2008.3 9 March 2015
A test to see if this works.... One of my images from Haiti..1 8 March 2015
INSTRUCTIONS:8 March 2015
This is meant to be a fun weekly challenge for all Focussion friends and members. You can enter either photos you have taken previously - or even new photos taken during the week that the contest runs!
How to Enter a photo for the weekly contest: In this SAME THREAD, you will see a button called REVISION just below the main weekly theme photo and above the first reply. BUT BEFORE UPLOADING! - Please resize your image to 1200 pixels on the largest side - that is important! Next - write a little something about entry - and press REVISION - and you will be able to UPLOAD a photo into this thread. Then - hit the button Post Feedback after your entry has uploaded. It is that easy! however - if your "revision" is outside the theme for the week, I will delete it ;)
How to Vote for you favorite Images this is the easy part! If you see an image that you really like - and think should WIN the weekly challenge - just click the "Helpful" link under that picture.! The person with the most "Helpful" votes at the end of the week - wins, and chooses the theme for the following week. And, of course - you can vote for all entries - but - that's a little counter-productive to deciding who has the best image..
Anyway - I hope this works...
AND OH - PLEASE ONLY POST IMAGES FOR THE WEEKLY CHALLENGE AS A REVISION IN THIS THREAD!!! If you post them as a new image thread, they don't count in the voting - and - they will cost you Tokens to post...
My Thanks to @Spotfist and @Flyer01 for encouraging this idea...
