K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Good morning, welcome to Monday!

Time for your weekly burst of photographic creativity, with K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge being brought to you by the theme of; Patterns in/from nature.

I chose, as usual, to muck about with my photos, using a picture of the bare oak tree behind our house to make an arboreal snowflake and a shot of a large pine tree to make…well, something else.

What do you think, cool huh?

You can see K’lee’s post HERE.

Now it’s your turn.

*****

To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.
Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.

Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Hello there, fans of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge and newcomers alike, I hope you enjoyed the last ordinary weekend of the year. Now it’s time for another burst of Monday morning creativity, courtesy of K’lee’s prompt; Show us your Winter’s light.

I took my entries for the challenge on the journey home from work yesterday morning, in the hills above the A361 link road, which cuts through the countryside from the M5 motorway, on its way to Barnstaple and the rest of North Devon.

It was very foggy when I drove to the edge of Exmoor at 6 a.m. but the worst of it had lifted by the the time I returned around midday, leaving some nicely artistic mist to add atmosphere to the pictures. See what you think…

You can see K’lee’s post HERE, but let’s see what you have to offer first; over to you…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Good morning and welcome to this week’s first post.

Yes, K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is here and the theme was set by me on Friday when I gave you the prompt; When Night turns to Day, the exact opposite of K’lee’s prompt from last week.

Well, I was working overtime yesterday and was therefore up at the highly unsociable hour of five o’clock in the morning, so I took the opportunity to snap a few shots before I started work and a few more just after the misty dawn broke.

Here are the results; one, the other and both at once…

A link to K’lee’s photo is HERE, but now let’s see your offerings for the day…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

It’s time once again to fire up your imaginations and get creative for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, which today revolves around a theme of my choice.

I specifically asked you to use some form of post-production effects for this week’s challenge, because that is what we like here and I’ve noticed that some of you shy away from using all but the most basic adjustments to your original photos.

Plus, I have a guest contributor this week, so I also wanted to be able to crowbar his pictures in.

I’ve gone for some more abstract images, produced using photos of industrial components as the source material.

The next selection are from my old friend and esteemed blog artist-in-residence, Ho, who sent me these colourful and artistic contributions last week.

So, there you have it.

KG left us this.

Lady Lee Manila offers these for your perusal.

And K’lee’s photo is HERE, for your viewing pleasure.
Now, show us the fruits of your creative labours…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Good morning, welcome to Monday. I hope the weekend hasn’t left you a shadow of your former self, (you see what I did there?) because I need you at your creative best for today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

K’lee picked the theme for today’s post and he chose to go back and revisit one of our earlier challenges;  Shadows and Silhouettes.

I’ve chosen a couple of old favourites, reworked two more from my archives and added one new shot, see what you think…

As ever, K’lee’s link is HERE, but now let’s see what you have to show us…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Good morning and welcome to a new week and a new edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge

You have my sympathy if you are waking up to another Monday at work, because I’m on holiday for a couple of days and this post is automatically scheduled (there’s no chance I’m actually awake as this is posted) since I managed to get it all edited last night.

This week’s theme was; Remembrance, to coincide with armistice day, commemorating the end of World War I, as a tribute to the men and women who served and continue to serve in the armed forces around the world.

Here is a link to K’lee’s photo, now it’s time for you to show us what you’ve got for us…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a nice relaxing weekend and that K’lee’s prompt of Black and white landscapes gave you plenty of inspiration for today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Fortunately it was a beautiful day yesterday, so I ventured out onto the windy hillsides above the Taw valley, up to the Fullabrook Down wind farm, where the majestic structures of the wind turbines add an extra presence to the landscape.

I got some fine shots of the low morning sun, shining across the wooded valley and I mucked about with some long exposure shots of the turbine blades in motion (more of which can be seen over at Photo Sans Frontiers) giving them a dandelion-like appearance:

And just because I can, another gif:

Now it’s time for you to show us what you’ve come up with.

You can see K’lee’s photo HERE.
