    Michael, if you read lead post more carefully, the one is more about the concept, not just having a single subject. It's a nice portrait, but the concept is not there... ne_nau.gif

    Beth, while displaying single ant on a single flower, the concept of "oneness" is not expressed clearly here imho ne_nau.gif

    Thanks, I was taking the concept part a little differently, I understand now.

    This assignment seems to be tripping a lot of people up, so here's my take - they're both a bit of a stretch.

    I like #1. thumb.gif
    #2 - not so much, not clear what is your "focus" point (i.e. primary character) ne_nau.gif

    Two Takes on One Tree
    I have been juggling a couple of these assignments in my mind as I move toward spending more time on photography and various techniques.

    This particular assignment is quite challenging. I wanted to see if I could make this tree the focus of a photo and convey "one" but see what you think.

    One Tree, Many Branches, Reaching to the Sky
    519804438_8Uvr6-M.jpg

    Barren Tree in a Sea of Green
    519804371_FbqGq-M.jpg

    This tree will soon be in leaf with the weather in the 80s here this weekend, but right now it is rather stark compared with the plant life below and nearby.

    Thank you for your entries!
    First two are too busy IMHO to deliver any idea of oneness and loneliness ne_nau.gif
    Third image is no show, can't say...

    I agree that neither gives a sense of loneliness. At the beginning of this thread there was something about "One dominating object. Or one dominating color" and I thought the first image might fit the dominating object category because of the perspective and all. I didn't post the third image yet, which jumps off the one dominating color idea, because I wanted to see whether either tree photo image of the tree worked. Conveying loneliness is definitely more challenging! Thank you for your input on these.

    Here is a "one dominating color" photo that I took the other day.
    520938566_qyCNF-M.jpg

    I took this photo of a dandelion after photographing the tree, but today I see that someone else entered a photo of a dandelion....

    Dominant color will do, although I wouldn't think of it without the textual hint, since it's not obvious what the image is about.

    Second one definitely shows one, but in a very entry-level way. Dull dead center composition, no context ne_nau.gif

    PLease keep in mind that we're trying to create good photographs, which, apart from their inherent quality, also follow strict rules of the assignments...

    Yes, I tried to pick the photographs that I felt were strongest (the ones of the trees) and set others aside for just that reason - especially the dead center dandelion!

    I can see why you said in another thread that there have been relatively few images which conveyed "oneness" effectively. Definitely a challenge!

    Thanks.

    I had 3 or 4 similar frames. I liked this one with the bird because it was one lone bird flying over a swamp with one lone telephone pole. Looking at the frames I felt like this had more oneness than the frames without the bird. :D

    While out shooting simple shapes, (for week one). I also was thinking about week two. (It happens when you're a hundred odd weeks behind).

    One hole in the fence.

    One dominant colour

    I appreciate any and all feedback given. And thanks again for keeping this class running, for all us late joiners. I'll keep my eyes out for that image that implies "oneness" or solitude.

    I like the hole. Rose - not so much, but that possibly me, I'm severely biased against flowers, pets, kids and other regular cute stuff...

    Not the greatest image, but I was shooting some coins for my website, and thought I would post it. Shot with a cheaper camera... a Nikon coolpix. Hopefully it fits the theme of ONE

    I have had this shot in mind for two months, but it seems that birds in Pennsylvania are not as fond of sitting on fences and wires as in the midwest. Finally had the opportunity to grab this shot last night. Glad you like it!

    1) Thank you for joining the Class!
    2) Can you post a bigger image?
    3) While it kinda has "one something", it's a snapshot. We're looking for a slightly better quality images here. At this point my only thoughts are not about the "oneness", but about "ok, it's a snapshot taken in green mode with a built-in flash".
    Care to do better? mwink.gif
