Update: Thanks for everyone who has submitted to this assignement. Due to it's size (and the length of time needed to open it) I've decided to end it here at Flickr and continue it over at the Forums. You can now post your blue photos here.

Ok - it's been a while since we did a group assignment (sorry about that, but with a new baby in the house I've been slightly distracted!).

So here's a simple one that bounces off an older post I wrote on using colour in your photos.

In that post I wrote about a photographer who was obsessed with the color green - the results of his obsession were quite spectacular.

So let's spend a week or so taking photos and posting them here that focus on the colour BLUE.

Some of you will already have 'blue photos' and others of us will need to go out of our way to find opportunities to take them. But lets see what we can come up with!

Have fun friends!

Darren

PS: if you don't know how to post photos to this forum follow the steps I outline in the intro to this previous assignment.

Here's a set I've done quite some time ago when I first got my Canon S2 IS. Now that I've changed to Nikon D50, I really miss the macro closeups! Maybe it's time to get a macro lens. :D

Great idea! Great pictures so far!

I snapped this shot at the Bellevue Botanical Garden in Bellevue, Washington. It's a great place to check out if you're ever near Seattle. It's photographer eye candy, or should I say lens. ;)

A view from our kitchen window in Guilin, Guangxi province, China - We nolonger live in Guilin, since taking this photo we have moved to Yantai, Shandong province (also in China) by the way Im teaching English in China, and taking every opportunity to take as many photo's as I can - This one was taken back in May, the beautiful "blue" kurst mountains of Guilin and Guangxi province are ofcourse world famous, they have been represented in countless 'traditional' Chinese paintings for centuries - I like this image because it shows the more urban side to China. Which as some of you will know is the what most of China now is -

Ok, first time posting here, so, I hope this works....



I was playing with long exposures, and color temperature differences between incandescent and LED flashlights. The concept is from my *other* shooting hobby, where there's an ongoing argument about which is better, 9mm or .45 caliber, and this is my visual take on the usual spin given to that argument. The full series, under the incandescent flashlight, is posted at msk.creativephiles.com

Almost forgot... Canon G2, 800 ISO 35mm film, 30 second exposure. Minimal postprocessing in photoshop to bring out the color, and crop/resize.

These were taken at a near by beach, called Picos, at new year's eve. Very beautiful place, with almost no intervention from modern life.

This one is the sign for Zé do Zezim's restaurant (they serve the best and cheapest lobster at Picos):

And this one is of a couple sitting on the top of the Plate Rock, that has the nicest overall view of the beach:

I took this shot yesterday. I had a lot of trouble with my 350D's auto-focus, and over-compensated with aperture. Even at ISO400, the exposure was a little long, and the picture is a little noisy. But hey, how often do you see a few dozen dolphins surfing? :)
