Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast


What’s best about this photo is that though it is retouched for colours, sharpness, contrast (ha!) and others, the sunburst and bokeh are indeed the real thing. In response to WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast.

    1. Justine, my dear fiancée, are you trying to hide from He? Heh 😀

      Yep, I’m glad Writing 101 is over. I’ll catch up with the tasks I missed and I’ll be happy to go challenge-less for a while now. It wasn’t as inspiring to me as I was hoping it would be.


          1. I approve! Totally what the bear would say! I wish my hair did curl, I’d love to have some curly locks, but it won’t and stubbornly remains straight.


        1. I decided to do so, though the transaction hasn’t been finalised yet. I got unexpectedly some extra money — an advance payment for editing a book I haven’t even yet seen! — so I could more or less afford it. And it looks like D80 is the perfect thing for me — might not be perfect for everyone, but it meets my specific requirements, especially as to its small size and weight.


          1. Congrats on that!!! 😀
            It’s great that you finally have a DSLR,as you’ll make full use of it!! 🙂
            It is a very good camera and you can use all lenses on it,and that’s very very great!

            Here are some links which show photos taken with the D80.I find them super interesting,so I thought about sharing them with you.You might get inspired:

          2. This is just awesome! Thanks so much for the links, I’m bookmarking them. I’m nowhere near taking photos this good though. A lot, a lot to learn yet! Once I master the camera and once I get some money, I’d like to get a macro lens for it — I especially liked the macro photos in the collections you linked to. But this is a long way to go yet.

  1. Writing 101? I knew I missed something. Excellent shot/burst of sunlight. I know very little of how to adjust photos (unless the apple people give me options on my phone) and am always in awe of those who have technology at their fingertips. 🙂


    1. Yes, Writing 101 course is here: http://dailypost.wordpress.com/courses/writing-101-building-a-blogging-habit/. I didn’t terribly enjoy it, but I must admit that it set me writing! I’m sure it will be repeated soon enough, so you can take it later if you’re interested 🙂

      Don’t worry about photo editing, I’m bad at it myself, all I did was to get a photo-editing programme and I’m experimenting without any previous knowledge of what I’m actually doing! I guess Apple people give you choices enough — I wouldn’t know, though, I’m an Android user…


      1. Thank you for including the link, Mara. I will take a look and if they repeat the challenge will do my best to make time to take part.
        Photo editing is certainly something I am yet to get into, although I do hope to learn more about it. I was advised to add a copyright signature to my photography and I am yet to figure out how! So it is one long learning journey for me. Thank you again!


        1. Yes, it is reasonable to tag your photos when you start to make good ones — I don’t put any signature on my snaps, but I do put one on my best photos that I post to Flickr 🙂 I haven’t tried it myself, but I think Pic Monkey is a popular online photo editor that can add text to photos. You can give it a try!
