Minnie, the graffiti in Cuba image is a capture well seen and taken, but I will have to give you ever so much credit for the long exposure image. I'm not much of a fan with milky water falls, streams, etc. as I use to be, but this one seems to be just right, IMO. The composition is very effective with the leaves/foliage in focus to almost perfect harmony to draw the viewer in to the falls. Kudos for the handheld, tripod less image. The only and I do mean ONLY nitpicking I can offer is the breakthrough of the sky in the top center. Nowhere near a dealbreaker for such an outstanding image.

Thanks Dave. Cuba was a fun challenge. I think I can fix that little sky problem once I get home.

This week's assignment - Paths

From my return visit to the swamp, to see how fall progressed while I was gone. You've seen this path in my images before, but it looks best in fall just after sunrise.

I concur with Frank !!!

The bridge is a treasure to find and adds some secretive pleasure to this image.

Thanks Dave. I always wish there was a more open path to the little bridge but I can't cut down trees in a national park so I accept them!

I spun silhouette this week. I well know what that means for me to do, but I went a little different road first, because this was the week that I help my cousin at the annual state Craftsmen Guild festival, and her craft is cutting silhouettes! So, I took a photo of her cutting one. Then, because I felt like I might have shirked my duty, I shot a silhouette of the trees in the swamp this morning and played with them in PS.

What a wonderful & creative idea to include your cousin in your weekly project. I have not found much success with silhouettes, but still try. Your trees in the swamp is an excellent one to view. I'm still able to see some detail which is what appeals to me. I'm liking your chosen tone as well. Most silhouettes seems to be a subject with high backlighting that drowns most details, (at least that's what I have witnessed in the past) but not here. I also find it to be a unique coincidence that I'm posting some form of a silhouette of a ferris wheel into my ever -so - behind 52 project.

Thanks Dave. I hope you see a tiny bit of Chinn-ish inspiration in the cousin shot, with the glow-y blur.

Aren't you proud of us for making it into the 12th month of our 52project? I was thinking about that today. We are warriors!
