    It would if you'd cropped the feet out ;-)

    Don, thank you!
    I do see straight lines, but the shapes are a bit too complex for this task, don't you agree? headscratch.gif

    My first assignment
    First of all, I must thank you, Nikolai. I think you are amazing to have created and keep managing this; it is an incredible service. I think it is just what I need. I feel OK with the technical things, but I need to develop the vision, or photographic eye, or whatever people call it, to actually take good pictures.

    Which brings me to these, my ho-hum shots for the Simple Shapes and Lines assignment.

    1. Diagonal lines and an arc (debris around my shop)

    2. Line/circles on a mango tree
    271802479_VjdRu-M.jpg

    3. Arc and truncated cones (back of storage shed)
    271783571_wFdaP-M.jpg

    4. :D (A panelled door with its half-round window masked off for finishing)
    271783608_iuEwM-M.jpg


    Hope these qualify for the assignment and aren't too amazingly boring!

    Peace,
    Sanaka

    Thank you for the entries, I like #3 and #4 the most! thumb.gif
    #2 - not so much ne_nau.gif (we're looking for geometrically perfect actual lines, not imaginary ones)

    Thanks, Nikolai :D

    I was kind of thinking about your bamboo/lines shot when I put the tree one in there, but yeah, point taken.

    Never even in my rampant hippie college days was I ever 71 assignments behind in a class! eek7.gif I wish I had caught on much earlier becasue I'd like to participate thoroughly and gain as much as I can. So I think I will try for a few a week until I at least mostly catch up.

    I know I can do this how I want, but do you recommend also doing whatever is the current weekly assignment while I'm catching up, or just wait until I'm all caught up first? I.e. how structured is the cumulativeness of the assignments?

    Peace,

    Please do not feel pressured or rushed beacuse of the lag. The last thing we need is a slew of a hastily taken pictures. What I recommend (even in the lead/index post) is to try to stay current and only then work your way back, no more than two-three per week.
    Qulaity over quantity! deal.gif

    For sure. Point taken.

    What I recommend (even in the lead/index post)...
    From lurking here I've learned that you, Nikolai, are pretty much a saint about dealing with people not following/reading the rules and guidelines.

    Please accept my apology for getting off on this bad foot in that regard: I PROMISE to not be a chronic annoyer. Ban me if I become such!! :bash

    Ok, off to look for the candles!

    Pyry,
    it's a nice shot thumb.gif , but it wouldn't get you a passing grade in your geometry 101 class. ne_nau.gif

    Yeah, I misunderstood the topic, the word 'geometric' is missing from the title. I figured that out as skimmed through the thread. (note to self: read the full assignment text first, you've done this before...)

    At that point I'd already shot the piccie so posted it why not. :D

    A while back, ok a long while back Antonio told me about this site. I was trying shooting a wine glass and he gave me the link to the bottles assignment. Well thought it was time to give the assignments a try. Hoping I can keep myself going on them. I did manage to get 1-4 a try. So here is number 1. wings.gif

    Welcome, and thank you for your entry!thumb.gif
    Just FYI, it is recommended to always start with the most current exercise and only then work on the catchup, mostly backwards...

    Ok... so here I go...
    Ok, so here is my first attempt at this assignment...

    Tell me what you think...

    (And yes, I saw the last post about starting from the last assignment and working my way back... but that's just weird... feels wrong... plus, this gives me a chance to go out and shoot "from the start")

    It's a nice entry with a lots and lots of "simple shapes and lines".
    In fact, there are so many of them that it's thant that simpe any more. Maybe zoom into some smaller area with a - very - simple pattern? mwink.gif

    Please also take human factor into your consideration. I'm far more inclined to provide a detailed feedback on a new concept compared the one that's been already coverd dozens of times and in all ways possible...ne_nau.gif

    See... that makes gooder sense... I will try to catch up fast and try to do double duty with a new assignment as well as an old one... (TRY mwink.gif )

    I do need to start shooting more and more, and will def. keep what you just said in mind...

    Thanks for the help.
