Continuing with my 2014 Photo Challenge Submission posts. I began participating in the Photo Challenges in Week 8 of 2014. After I posted Week 8, I went back a week and posted the Week 7 challenge as well and I have posted a photo every week since.
I am sharing my final submitted photos by challenge category: Composition, Landscape, Nature & Wildlife, Still Life, and Special Effects & Techniques. Learn more about the challenge here: www.PhotoChallenge.org
This has been and continues to be a wonderful photographic journey for me!
Here are my Nature & Wildlife submissions for the 2014 Photo Challenge.
2014 Photo challenge Week 8: Birds in flight March 2, 2014 “Coming in for a landing” This is my first challenge and I must say I took a lot of mental notes of things I need to study to get more comfortable with my camera. Looking forward to learning from you all.
2014 Challenge, Week 12: Nature & Wildlife – Buds Last week, I couldn’t find any buds or leaves anywhere. This week, I ended up taking photos of the flowers in the grocery store, but luckily before I posted that cop-out, I discovered that the first tulips I’ve ever planted were pushing through on the patio. smile emoticon Taken w excitement on my Samsung Galaxy 3, w some filter treatment to enhance the mulch!
2014 Photo Challenge, Week 19: Nature & Wildlife – Mother Nature “Lunar Cycle” This past week I certainly felt my lunar cycle playing tricks on me. This shot seemed very timely. Sony A33, 300mm, F32, 1/250 sec, ISO 1600
2014 Photo Challenge, Week 23 Nature & Wildlife – GROUND “Regal Mushroom” Sony A33, 55mm, ISO1600, f 5.6, 1/8sec
2014 Photo Challenge Week 27: Nature & Wildlife – RED, WHITE and BLUE I set up at the park with the intention of trying to catch some birds in flight. No birds, but a lot of airplanes… and one of the best sunsets I’ve been able to capture. Explored local editing (to lighten the flag) and watermarking in Lightroom 5. Sony A33 1/160sec, f40, 100 ISO, 300mm
