19th Challenge. Food and Drink. RESULTS!

Hi there folks...

Here we are: We have our three top placed pictures.

In FIRST place with a runaway 35 points is "Red and White" by theMusicMan" A nice mixture of still life and action..
Well done John! You get to chose the topic and run the next one



In Second place with 20 points is "Coffee" by Dbutch. Another good picture Dave :-)



Close behind in Third place is "Microcan" by Stevednp3. An inventive entry and very striking.. Well done Stephen.



So, thanks to everyone who entered - some great pictures there. Over to you John for the next challenge..

Pete

Re: 19th Challenge. Food and Drink. RESULTS!

Bravo! Well done and fully deserved!

My vote matched 2 out of the above 3. I did provide an entry to the challenge, but of course it was no match for these and other entries, and I knew that before I sent it in. Playing along is about participating and enjoying life in the process.

Congrats to you Oly-pro's again.

Re: 19th Challenge. Food and Drink. RESULTS!

Wehey, many thanks to all who voted... I genuinely didn't expect that. Not only was I not 100% happy with my shot, but more importantly - having seen a few of the other entries, I certainly didn't expect to be the person running the next challenge!

For this shot I used a blanket (not quite all white - as you can see by the pattern in it), and set this up on the lounge coffee table! I used the FL-50 off-camera mainly to lighten the background, but to also use this as side lighting - instead of frontal lighting - for the shot. I felt it created more of a relaxed look than those I took that were front lit.

So... my thanks to everyone for your votes this is much appreciated. I am particularly enthused by this vote of confidence as, despite deciding only a few weeks ago to remain with my Oly kit, I had been thinking prior to that of moving to the dark side.

Thank you.

Now... off to consider the theme for the next e-group challenge. I'll have this up today or tomorrow for y'all.

J

Well done John

How many takes was that then? I would say it you got the level of fluid and the flow spot on

Dave
