I sympathize, really, I haven't picked up my camera this week at all. I keep meaning to take more photos of the house renovation but my cell phone camera is all I have time for right now. Soon I'll play catch up!

I did it!!

Actually this one was from my first attempt (I went out to shoot this picture 3 times). I decided it was the best I was going to get and am actually pretty happy with how it edited up.

This is me. I love the outdoors (even in the cold winter), I adore my dogs and my dogs adore me.

This was shot with a 50mm 1.8f lens on a tripod with a remote shutter release.
Aperature: f4.0 Shutter speed: 1/1000 ISO: 500

Ahh, I really AM trying here. I thought finding the time to take the picture would be the problem. Now Flickr won't let me log in. Dear Flickr, we have a love-hate relationship going on and it's not healthy.

The photo isn't near the creativity as the rest, but I wanted to get something if for the first week.

Yes! I believe Adrianne has just been busy renovating the house, so they could move.

DO IT! I .... can't critique or I would

Ok, here are my critiques!

I adore the concept! The focal point is good and I love the aperature you chose. It does seem as though the white balance is off, maybe a little on the cool side? Overall, I really, really like this image, especially how it relates to the theme this week.

I like how the warmth of the image, I think it helps convey a relaxed mood. The red of the blanket and the red of the tablet cover is another fantastic detail. The only thing I would've changed is to possibly try to get the tablet on the same plane as the focused area (Kastle's face). I think it would've helped show you as the subject of the photo as well as Kastle. So easy for me to sit here and say that, when I know how difficult it is to prefocus the camera and shoot with a remote shutter release!!

The absolute only thing I would've changed (if I could wave my magical photo changing wand and it was that easy), is to move the phone to the top right hand corner instead of in front of the tree. I think this would have balanced the image nicely with the focal point in the bottom left corner. I also think it would've helped Abe's picture stand out, rather than fighting for attention with the tree. There are so many little things I love about this photo though. The detail of the black sock blending into the green of the tree, the bling on the collar of your shirt, everything is subtle and blends so well together.

I think the edge burning helps frame the image nicely, however I would've liked a more subtle burn personally. Overall, I think it's a fantastic picture, with the highlight being the lines that lead your eyes throughout it.

I also really liked the description that came with it, explaining each piece and why it's important. Very cool twist on the theme this week. I may have tried to lay it out a bit differently, having the drawing be the focus point and have the artifacts more the background. I appreciate that the photograph is taken from "as you see it" viewpoint, so I would try to keep that as much as possible. Very cool idea!

I do however, wish that my eye traveled more smoothly around it. A bit different of a lay out, or a main focus point would help that I think.

I think I would've bumped up the ISO a bit to try and lighten up the photograph as it almost seems as though the photograph of Rosey is disappearing into the background.

Love this one! The expression on the dog, the feet touching him, I really like it. The tree behind the dog throws me off though, I almost wonder if it was shot with the tree off to the side if it wouldn't help balance out the image? Gah this critique thing is hard!!

Very cool idea. I like the depth of field, I think it adds a certain dimension to the picture. Not sure what the stats are on this image, but I would have tried to lighten up a tad.

I think a vertical crop would frame the subject better while taking away the potentially distracting background.

Love this one!! The idea is great, I adore the shoes, I adore the dog's paws. I wouldn't change anything about it, it's lovely.

I'm critiquing my own. I struggled taking this image, I had no idea how difficult it was to prefocus the camera and to get the shutter release to operate when I needed it too. I'm not completely happy with how this came out, but it is what it is. I think it's too dark, I should have bumped up the brightness a bit in editing. I'm also distracted by the falling snow flakes.

I do like some things about it though! I like the concept, I like the look Zinga is giving me. I like the crop and that I was able to follow the rule of thirds.
