My pick of the week is Shaker for Best of 45 (28 Oct – 03 Nov). I really like the light in this shot and the details, but more than anything I like how this shot is a starting point for a bigger story. Is it high tide? Low Tide? Is the shell hiding or emerging?

  • For Theme 44 – Subjects of Phobias: I’d like to start by saying that I’m pretty scared about the pictures submitted for this, as it basically means that most of you were inches from these spiders and snakes and cockroach for instance. I really liked Monica as her spider seems to be dancing and Ben for a stinging shot but I picked in the end Larans that showed the Eiffel tower and reached me what acrophobia is in the same picture

My pick of the week is Remus for Best of 44 (21 Oct – 27 Oct). Not only is it a beautiful light painting shot but it’s a shot that celebrate Remus 9 years of photoblogging. 9 years is a really impressive number. Congratulations and many more to you Remus!

  • For Monthly Project 09 – Photo Hunt: This project was slightly different from others and I was able to pick freely one picture as my favorite in each of the 5 categories. I picked Twiggy for the apple category for a tasty shot full of textures, Larans for bridge for a stunning light and great composition, Love2b for red for a great light and a vibrant red, Shaker for street for a nifty effect and Day One for “any” for a picture with a lot of story behind.

My pick of the week is My Glass Eye for Theme 39 – Night Photography. I love the management of the colors and the lights trailing off. Since he joined us 3 weeks ago, Owen has put good submissions after good submissions. Really curious to see his next takes.

World Wide Photo Walk

I do apologize if you were looking for your weekly long exposure fix but it will come back next week.

Tomorrow, on Saturday 5th of October I will be part of the World Wide Photo Walk. It was created 6 years ago by Scott Kelby and it will be the first one I will attend. The idea is to meet up with fellow photographer and follow a leader in a specific area. I will go with Celine and Christine and we will take part of the Greenwood walk. We will spend most of our time in the Greenwood Cemetery that is an historic landmark.

I’m very curious to see how it all goes down but last time I went to a cemetery for pictures was on a whim in New Orleans with Celine. It is a very special atmosphere to say the least.

Statue at a New Orleans CemeteryThere is also a challenge component that is fascinating. You have the opportunity to post a picture to a pool and your group leader will submit the best submissions worldwide. Last years winner was Lars from Sweden. Lars is better known on Photoblogchallenges as Larans 😉

There are apparently still openings so don’t hesitate if you want to join. Just click this link to find a walk near you.

I did hesitate a long time for my pick of the week due to the great submissions of Blendwerk  and My Glass Eye. I loved the curve work and the photorealism of these. I was also amazed by the rendering of Monica but I finally had to settle down for the submission of Steve Rice. Steve has been with Photoblog Challenges since the early days and I’m really jealous of the result he achieved with this weeks submission.

  • For Monthly Project 08 – Summer : The days are getting colder but we were still able to appreciate your view of summer. I picked Larans and Thorgun for their view of the big North. Looks like they had  a lot of fun under the sun. There is a feel of coldness with gorgeous like on both. I picked Twiggy for her work in depth on the summer flowers.

My pick of the week among the winners was the submission for Best of 36 by Wanderungen. I couldn’t leave this look and had the feeling to be very close to this cow with a lot of personality.
