52 weeks: Week 32 wrapup

© 2010 Simon Hucko

I tried out a few "circle" concepts this week, but nothing came out well. So instead I give you this shot of some summer flowers. I noticed the bees buzzing around, so I camped out by an attractive group of flowers and waited for one to land. Notice that there are three flowers in the main subject group: people tend to find photos of an odd number of things more pleasing than an even number. Don't know why, but it seems to work. I was planning on this being a square shot when I took it, although I didn't quite leave enough room for all the flowers. This is where having multiple aspect ratio guides in the viewfinder would be really handy, but I guess I'll just have to learn the hard way. I've been on a desaturation kick lately, I guess it gives things more of a "film" look which I've been obsessed with interested in as of late.

My pick this week is "summertime" by irv_b:

I love the story of this photo. Shooting in the rain is a big pain in the butt, but it definitely pays off if you do it right. Great street shot!

This week's theme is "green" - take that how you will. It would be nice to see a few people come back to regular posting, you know who you are. We miss you guys!
