This one would be better suited for a lines theme... but I threw it in anyway.
Technically I'm shooting through stairs, right??

And this was scraping the bottom of the barrel.
But I wanted to get seven photos in at least.
Quite a disappointing week. I hope I do better this time around, although it looks to be a busy one.
So... Next week's theme? *cue dramatic IRON CHEF music, smoke and camera zoom!* Space.
Hard week this one. Got a few nice ones, but mostly duds. Like this one.
It's a wind chime at my parents' place. Didn't really think it through too well.
Reminds me of something I read on someone's blog: "There are no bad photographers, just lazy ones." Don't know whether I agree with it in general, but laziness certainly killed off this shot.

I wanted him to stand out subtly by desatching everything else slightly but without the tell-tale selective colouring.
So ends this week. It's been a busy one as I've been processing photos from Smash (see my set on flickr - http://www.flickr.com/photos/mukimu/sets/72157624554510633/) and I also went out to the Glebe tram shed with a set of brollies and a cute model. The theme has been a good learning experience, especially in colour correction. They're not top-notch photos, but none of the Seven in Sydney collection are meant to be.
I was sort of afraid I wouldn't have much to use for this week's theme, but it seems it all worked out nicely.
So, next week? Shooting through stuff.
There's that pale green overcast that I haven't been able to get rid of, but what you can't see is that the original was completed washed out in green. Those light bulbs are actually all green.
The sign is also green, which is a bit of a tricky task for colour correction.
This isn't perfect, but I'm pretty happy with where it ended up given the original.

I did consider that the mobility theme might be a bit hard also. So I'm going to try something easier this week: Desaturation.
It's more of a post-processing thing, but I think I need practice in that area too.
