One Four Challenge: June Week 1

Social Snappers Cornwall Park 208

A new month and a new image to work on for Robyn’s challenge at Captivate Me.  This is where we take a photo and edit it each week to see what we can come up with.  It is also a chance to learn new techniques as well with Photoshop and other photo editing programmes.

My image this month was taken last Friday at Cornwall Park.  For this first week I played around with the exposure, tweaking the clarity, sharpness and colour cast slightly.

So it will be fun to see how this will end up.  Any ideas and constructive criticism is welcome.

Cee’s Oddball Challenge: Sunday Stills Circles

Dirt circles-167

Good morning from a cool and cloudy Hastings day.  We are now officially in winter.  In just 3 weeks we will have the winter solstice and the frosts will only be getting stronger.  So one day, or several days I must drag myself out for some sunrises in the frosts.  At least they are later in the morning.  The downside is the freezing cold, and keeping the camera battery warm.

My photo for both Ed at Sunday Stills and Cee at Cee’s Photography‘s challenges was taken last Friday with my social snappers group.  We were walking around and generally enjoying ourselves when I came across these circles in the ground.  As these were under a tree I figured that they weren’t made by little alien spaceships.  Not like the corn field circles around the world.

The cause was actually more mundane than aliens.  Everyday there is a group of men doing tai chi under this tree.  Out of respect for them I didn’t take a photo of them doing their exercises.  But walking under the tree after they had gone I had noticed these circles that they left while shuffling their feet.
