That's a wonderful shot, Ira! Definitely fits the category and the b&w is perfect for the lighting of it. For those following the thread, scroll back to the first page and take a look - definitely a keeper!

My submission, taken at the Tacoma WA Museum of Glass "Hot Shop". I was looking to get an image for the Pentax Forums contest "motion" but this presented itself.

Image was modified in Lightroom, tried to use the brush but opted to do more "normal" PP. Spot metered off of the "Glory Hole", light is mostly from the furnace with outside light from halogen lights from above.

Info:

K20D - ISO 800 - DA 50-200mm ED - f/10 - 1/200.

Nice shot, it's difficult to get a good exposure on a blast furnace, but you did!

A shot of a type I don't normally take. I think it fit's the theme quite well, though. This elephant has been standing in my window for a year, but I haven't "seen" it till tonight. A*85mm 1.4 @ f7.1, 1/20 sec ISO 400

Very nice elephant! I got a chuckle out of your comment - so often I don't see things that are in front of me every day. One of the nice things about photography is that it encourages one to look closer at what's around them all the time. It's awesome how many wonderful photo opportunities there are in our every-day lives.

It is getting to the end of the month, but still time to shoot contrasts.

Hello Everyone,

Well, my daughter and I finally pulled something together for the Contrast challenge.

I told her what the challenge was and that with her dark hair and light skin we could play around with that and her face lit up as she said . . . "I have the perfect dress for this!"

And it is a pretty cool dress with all these shiny black circles on the top part.

Here is our submission to the challenge.



[Sidenote: Does anyone know how to create really dark shadows with a flash unit? I was trying to do that. Obviously I need to do some reading on how to do it, because I was only able to get a very mild shadow.]

Take care, yours truly,
Glen
