Re: 11th E-group Challenge - 'The Pub'

Doh. I scoped out a subject in Halifax this weekend, but wrong lighting, wrong weather and no parking.. Back to the drawing board

Or should that be a slur of entries

Sorry - couldn't resist

Re: 11th E-group Challenge - 'The Pub'

good luck everyone

We'll aim to get to the pub this week, been a hectic few months.
Got a few ideas for shots, but will have to pick 'the right moment' to execute

Re: 11th E-group Challenge - 'The Pub'

Six entries so far with at least two more pledged, and some classy shots. I had an enjoyable lunchtime and evening myself.

However, we are still looking for the killer shot: on a wild dark night, with just a touch of moon glinting under the racing black clouds on the snow below, rays of light, warmth and merriment stream from the open door of an ancient pub on Dartmoor while outside, the silhouette of a highwayman, beside his tethered horse, watches for his lover's candle in the window above....

Get on it! Extra points if you catch the horse's steaming, frosted breath.

Who's worried about the horse - I understand the lady is a looker - an equal in fact to the highwayman.

Re: 11th E-group Challenge - 'The Pub'

Now, Olympians, it may be a challenge to take a defining shot of some set subject, but I'm sure you are equal to it. We have seven runners for 'The Pub.' So leave your birds and sunsets for a moment, and have a shot at this challenge. You have until Saturday evening to add your entry to the field....

Still no highwayman. How about some John Bull figure? John Prescott, even?....

Re: 11th E-group Challenge - 'The Pub'

*sigh* I'm totally stuck with this one. If I take a picture of the outside of a pub I'm fairly sure it'll be obvious it's down here, and anywhere's got to be within walking distance because my car's being fixed and won't be back till Saturday.

As for anything else, vaguely creative, I haven't a clue

I could probably get a picture of a daytime horse, but I don't think that would count!

C'mon Ellie - welcome to the world of photojournalism where you have to take a shot of something - at least here, you have a measure of choice in time, place and theme!

For the outside, I don't think the fact that your photo might be taken in a particular area of the country, or brewery, needs to stay your shutter finger. For ideas inside, think 'essence of pub:' warmth, welcome, fug, fires, barmen, barmaids, bars, beer, glasses, barrels, people talking (dressed in that inimitably British down-at-heel style).... dogs......lovers....married couples reading newspapers....

You can do it.....
