52 Pick Up : SUNFLARE


  1. The theme begins on Sunday and at least one image on the theme must be posted by the following Saturday.
  2. Images can be captured on my Digital SLR, point-and-shoot or even the phone on my camera.
  3. Each image must be taken during the theme week. No scrounging back through last year’s photos for “a good one”. That would be cheating and the challenge is about taking new photos with new inspiration!
  4. Images are allowed to be post processed. I shoot in RAW and use Photoshop Elements 9.0 for post processing. My favourite actions come from Pure Photoshop ActionsPaint the Moon and MCP Actions. If you haven’t checked them out yet you should. They both offer freebies to give you a taste of how their products work.
Each week I will post the challenge.  If you are participating, add a link to the photo you have taken in the comment section of that post.
WEEK 32: Sunflare

Sunday Stills: Something bizarre


This is kind of bizarre! Students are students. They are young and funny and do things that sometimes looks a bit bizarre.

Here is a drawing of the moment when receiving a degree!

I think this young man really felt the drawing was on his back!

Picture drawn by using those lovely  nails.

Here is the same young man looking bizarre over his cooking.

Join us in a weekly photography challenge.


Sunday Stills is a place to hone your photography skills. Each Week Ed issues a new “Challenge” that gives us the opportunity to pick up what ever kind of camera we own and try and meet it. Sometimes we’ll look forward to it because it might seem fun and easy and sometimes we might have to rack our brain to get the appropriate shot to meet the assignment requirements. The purpose is to get out there and use our cameras.

Each Sunday Ed will provide us with a new challenge and maybe give some tips on getting the job done. Any one can join in, the more the merrier. After you’ve put up your Sunday Stills post on your blog send us the link to the post and we’ll put them up here so everyone can go visit your blog, check out your pictures and comment.

Sunday Stills, The Next Challenge – Something Bizarre

Maybe it’s just me, but it seems like at least once a day I see something and think “That’s bizarre.” It might be a funky fungus growing out of a tree, some crazy clouds, our dog dozing with all four feet in the air. Sometimes it’s just my husband ;-) .

This week let’s look for some bizarre things or maybe just a bizarre way of photographing something ordinary.
