52 Week Challenge: Week 48

WEEK 48: Artistic: Bokeh – A shallow depth of field is often used to isolate the subject. Create an artistic interpretation using shallow depth of field.


The term bokeh is used to describe the quality produced in photography by having parts of the image out of focus. I like to use this effect in many compositions but, seeing as we are nearing xmas I decided that I could use the lights on our tree to convey the shape of the tree itself without actually showing the tree. This is really an extreme bokeh effect. Let me know what you think.



52 Week Challenge: Week 44

WEEK 44: Landscape: A Tree – Some of the most famous landscapes in the world feature a tree. Time to see what you can do.

Ok, you can argue whether this fits the description of a “landscape” in the classic sense, but I saw this astoundingly beautiful tree on the corner as I was driving the girls to school and the early morning sun made it look truly spectacular.



52 Week Challenge: Week 26

WEEK 26: Landscape: Simplify – Simply the scene to make your primary subject stand out.

If you look closely at this dead tree it resembles a hand curling out of the marsh. A bird must have thought it a potential place for a nest, but it really wasn’t given the straw debris beneath its crooked fingers.

Did the nest slip, or did the tree let go?
