The moon, a spotlight, a porthole, or even those mysterious designs in English fields are all circles that enclose or exclude, inevitably trapping the eye. Find these circles, capture them in a photograph, and bring them to the forum for display.

You'd be helping the skylark jackrussell.

This should proove interesting. You're very good at setting challenges. I wish my digital camera had a long enough shutter to produce a physiogram.

An excellent idea, and I'll bet someone with longer shutter speeds comes up with one. You could attach a flashlight to a wheel and then spin it. How about a merry-go-round, car wheels, roulette wheel...?

Not much chance of that, I don't fancy staying up all night running round in circles. :-)

wat's a physiogram? btw...you might be able to do long shutters with your camera ferny, you just need to be in the dark, with no flash....if i'm correct...i could be wrong though, it's rare but possible lol

this'll be a good one..i'm glad it's two weeks now, much more time to find ideas....

Well, when we photograph a circle that's lying on the ground and is a touch distant from us, what is it?:idea:

I don't know about you, but if I come across awild oval, I'm going to trap it.

Vito, a physiogram is a picture of moving light. For instance, if you use a slightly long exposure to take a picture of someone in the dark who's "writing" with a flashlight, you'll end up with a physiogram. This isn't the same thing as "painting with light" where you use a moving light to paint in a scene.
