PN 212 Final Frame

Denis Bresolin, of Thunder Bay, Ontario, took this picture of Manhattan, NY, from Brooklyn. "Our family's favourite holiday destination. What a fantastic city!" Denis used a Canon 7D, and a 10-24mm lens at 10mm, shooting a 2 second exposure at f/4, ISO 100.

"Points of View"

The PHOTO News Challenge for Summer 2012 is "Points of View". Your assignment - to photograph a familiar subject from a creative perspective.

The topic is open to a range of interpretations - you may shoot landscapes, people and pets, or seasonal events. You may want to experiment with different focal length lenses, lighting effects, angles of view - any creative approach that adds impact to the image. Photographs from previous summer adventures are welcome.

Our PHOTO News Challenge contests for 2012 are sponsored by Fujifilm Canada, who will present a very special prize to the most interesting image selected for publication in each issue.

Take a look at the images in this Summer Challenge thread for additional samples, suggestions, and technique tips.

To participate in the PHOTO News Challenge, please post a 500 pixel wide version of your entry in this thread – please include your name, your location, a description of how you took the photograph, and why you feel it is a special image. Full instructions on how to join the flickr® group, and how to post photos, can be found in this flickr® thread: www.flickr.com/groups/photonewsgallery/discuss/7215762228...


The PHOTO News Winter Challenge will run from June 3, 2012 through August 13, 2012.

You may post three images per week to this challenge thread.



The photo pool at our flickr® group will also be used to select images for our Reader’s Gallery – so take a look, sign in, post a few of your favourite photos, and enjoy our interactive photographic adventures!

Ok. I'll go first.

This wonderfull lady reenactor at the Battle of Stoney Creek commemoration, recounted stories and history of life on the frontier for more than half an hour that I spent chatting with her. The really cool part was that none of my dumb questions were considered dumb by her.

Oh ya. The high key lighting? A stroke of genius on my part. She was sitting under a white canvas fly and the sun was leaving this really cool washed out look inside.

....and I'll go second:

I shot this in Taber, Alberta at a local lake. These Northern Shoveler Ducks were taking off and getting pretty bunched up in the process.

My ISO was 800 on this shot with 1/2,000 second shutter speed and F:8. As for editing I decided to denoise it immediately considering it was shot at ISO 800. The sky was turned into white to focus more attention on the ducks.

A horse race!

I've been meaning to shoot this storefront display of vintage Vespas on Locke St., in Hamilton for a couple of weeks and finally stopped by there today. It's a closed store with only a couple machines on display and as I was designing the shot I noticed that they could be made to appear ghostly when the window reflections were allowed to influence the image. All of this dictated the final rendering of what is still a primary mode of transportation in many parts of the world yet is nothing more than fad here in North America.

Crooks Hollow

This is an early morning shot of the Darnley Mill in Dundas, Ontario.
Built in 1813 it was the areas first grist mill. In 1836 it was converted to upper Canada's first paper mill. In 1885 a boiler explosion killed 2, it was repaired and continued to operate till 1943 when a fire burned most of it to the ground except for the stone walls and foundation. Rumour is it's haunted and is a favorite site for paranormal researchers.

While shooting at the "media flights" a few days before the beginning of the Alberta International Airshow in 2010,I was fortunate(?) to capture the crash of a CF-18 Demo aircraft.My location down the flight line from the aircraft allowed a shot of the belly of the aircraft a moment before it exploded and the skewed horizon in the shot helped to highlight the turmoil of the moment.

Just the Grass

"Just the Grass" - © 2012 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott

To me this shot is special for its simplicity; it is "everyday beauty". We live in a beautiful land, and the tremendous amounts of grass are something easy to take for granted. And yet when viewed through a lens at a low angle, with the golden hour light of evening illuminating the stalks, there are few things more beautiful than this most simple item. So this shot celebrates the simple things that help make Canada beautiful.

Some days it rains on your parade, and some days the rain is the parade.

My camera had been away for servicing for 3 weeks and the first day I had a chance to get out, it was raining on and off pretty hard.

So after some debate I said what the heck, I went to a spot I knew with a big tree I could stand under and maybe catch something interesting. After 2 hours of not much going and only a few shots I gave up and walking back to my car this is what I saw.

Stood in the rain for what felt like an hour for the right spot to drip, was all worth it.

Horses and dandelions

I was out in the country for work and drove past this field, no camera in hand. I turned the car around and headed home to grab my camera. I was taken by the hill, sky and the dandelions. The horses were a big bonus and they were the factor that led me to the decision to go for my camera. The rest of the day was catch up, oh well! I shot this in raw, corrected the whites, blacks, and contrast, added a high pass filter to sharpen it up in CS6

On our last trip to Tofino, B.C. I decided to do some images of the area from above. I have been to Tofino many times, with images from the ground and water levels but nothing gives you a feel for the area like an aerial. We removed the door on a small float plane and took a short flight near sundown to take it in.

This picture was taken on top of a parking garage in Peterborough Ontario during the super moon in May. The moon was so brilliant and big creating an ethereal feeling. I wanted to show how low and brilliant the moon actually was so I used the clock tower and buildings in the picture. I used two exposures - one for detail in the moon, and one for exposure of the building and clock. The photos were then merged together in Photoshop.

New Mills New Brunswick Nov 2011.
A declining population due to job losses and the general desire for urban living, has resulted in many cedar sided "traditional" properties being abandoned and neglected. They are lost in the over grown brush and shorelines of the northern New Brunswick landscape. I can't help but marvel at the character I find in each of these structures and the fantastic details of the paint and weather wood. I couldn't resist the close composition on this particular "shed".

From a medieval jousting demonstration hosted by the cast of the Full Metal Jousting group in Ancaster, Ontario. This knight was cantering his mount to warm up for the event. A low solid overcast allowed me to wash out almost all the background.

Juan de Fuca Straits and Olympic Mountains (WA) - view from Vancouver Island (BC) by Sam A...

A shot I took in 2008 with a 4 Megapixel Kodak point-n-shoot. I had to crop the original JPEG to cut out the date stamp and recompose.
Still, I love this shot which shows the small boat (mankind, eh?) in front of the majestic Olympic mountains.

I was in Tobermory and saw this small plant growing out of the rocks. It looked so small in comparison to the rocks. I thought it would be an interesting view to get a shot from the plants perspective.

All I See Is Having Fun - Lansdowne Carnival X0400e by Harris Hui (in search of light)

The spring break fun fair at Lansdown Shopping Mall was still in preparation that afternoon. I met with the staff member Jason who was having lunch at the booth. I took a shot of his sunglasses with reflection of the booth.
The shot was taken with my Fuji X10 compact camera with fixed zoom lens.

Landmark and tourists are usual sights in vacation pictures.
What if they are isolated in the strange setting, will they produce a different result.
I was trying to shoot the Monument of Dicoveries in Berlem Lisbon without any people in the scene. But then this tourist popped into my scene and this made an interesting scene in my opinion.

Decide to go out with the T1i, it was feeling neglected and caught this candid of a father and his two boys looking at frogs in a shallow pool of water at the Devil's Punchbowl in Hamilton, Ontario. With the age of video games and computers it's nice to see a father teaching his children to appreciate nature.

I Herbert Fodor have been recording the Sunrises at the Bay here in Hamilton for many years now and I am always amazed what nature has in store for me every time I go out in the morning. Just like this image and its singular beam of reflection never seen before in all those years. I happened to photograph this image with my tripod at its lowest setting.

Because of Jasper National Park‘s position along the early Canadian railroad, the town has been the owner of a Haida totem pole for nearly a century.
Jasper’s Raven Totem pole stood near the railway station for more than 94 years, but was taken down on April 3, 2009 because of weather and structural damages.
And the reconstruction of the new pole finished in 2010, this is the new one.

MPU Impromptu Mini Shoot 2

It's who you know that counts. While street shooting in downtown Hamilton, the boys from the mounted unit happened along. Having shot them in several previous locations they stopped to pass the time of day and then suggested this impromptu mini-shoot in one of the alleys while they checked for other 'stuff'. I was reasonably sure of not getting mugged this time.
