Mini Challenge 261 Out & About.
Apr 10, 2012

Greetings all. Firstly thank you Nigel for selecting me to run the next challenge, I am privileged.

Mini Challenge 261 Out & About.

I have decided to have a challenge about something all photographers enjoy, being Out & About. This theme is wide open, provided shots are taken during an excursion. This could be a walk, vacation, outing or anything that meant you had to take your camera along.

So post from buildings to birds, vagrants to the rich & famous, flowers to landscapes. The idea is to show what can be had by getting away from our comfort zone.

Examples in the next post.

The MC starts immediately and ends on Tuesday, April 17th at 20.00 BST [19.00 UT].
The Mini-challenge Rules:

1) Enter up to 3 photos from any camera taken at any time. Let us know about equipment, settings and processing if you like.

2) The winner chooses the next mini challenge theme and selects the next winner and so on...

3) Please post your entries by replying to this original post rather than under someone else’s post - and change the subject line to the title(s) of your images or something like that to separate your picture posts from comments that someone may make about your post.

4) In the spirit of the previous challenge, I would like to nominate the previous host (Nigel) to take over my role in the event that I am unable to continue. The nomination carries an instant second, and the rules close out further nominations!

5) The challenge is open immediately, and will close for entries and exhibitions on April 17th.

As usual, exhibition entries are encouraged, if you have interesting images to share beyond your three entries, or should you feel you are not able to host the challenge in the event that you win.

7) All entrants should check the results of the challenge and be ready to jump in with the next competition if they are the winner.

8) PLEASE feel free to make as many comments as possible. This adds to the fun and keeps people coming back.

I look forward to sharing your pleasure.

Kind regards.

Ernest.

A wonderful collection. I assume you want these to be exhibition, although you did not indicate anything. Still it is a good collection.

Regards.

Thank you for a perfect exhibition shot, love it. Your entry of the tulip blew me away, fantastic. Your flowers have always been an inspiration. Well done.

Kind regards.

Foggy Morning...
In reply to ER_ Wizard, Apr 10, 2012

This is a shot I took on a weekend getaway last summer. In the town, it was sunny and warm, while out on a point where there was a lighthouse, the wind was onshore and it was cold and foggy.

The bird is pin sharp showing a lot of detail. Again the tulips are amazing. Like the use of DOF enhancing the look of the front tulip.

Regards.

This is what I refer to as a wall hanger. The position of the gull filling the space & creating a perfect focal point is great. The conversion does its job on this good shot.

Regards.
Ernest.

I'm awake Ernest, but off to the UK on Sunday,
'here are a couple for exhibition.
Fishing, or just talking on the Istanbul bridge.

Schoolkids watch the river boat go in the locks
on the River Dneiper.

Cherry ripe!

Hello Ernest - some exhibs
In reply to ER_ Wizard, Apr 11, 2012

The previous challenge was very slow to start and didn't reach the levels of recent topics. I thought it was the Easter holiday that some participants would be taking.

I'm sorry but I'm going to have to post exhibitions until the end of June - lots of short trips.... and my daughter's wedding [argh!].

Posting exhibitions gives me a bit more freedom, so these are a bit different! All these are recent.
