  1. Welcome to Collective Shoot #609
    July 12--18, 2018

    Where you post pictures taken between Thursday starting at 12:00AM (your time zone) running thru Midnight of the following Wednesday (your time zone).
    The theme this week: SIMPLICITY
    We’ve all been there: pictures that have no focal subject. Pictures that seem to encompass a multitude of subjects. And then slowly we learn to simplify our images and make them focus on one thing: changing our position or perspective, zooming in or out, changing lenses, changing focus of depth of field, and changing exposure are some of the ways we manage simplicity. (There is always "photoshop" but let's NOT go there, please!

    (And I’m going to have to re-learn this skill and be extra diligent when my 16-35 shows up later this week :eek: )

    If you can, feel free to post both a SIMPLIFIED version and it’s CLUTTERED version too.

    Here are a few examples from earlier:

    Oooh, I like those, Nick -- use of the KISS (keep it simple, stupid) principal;) 
     
  3. Stunning images, Nick. They make me wish you would post images more frequently.
     
  4. Thanks Mike. I have to shoot some for this CS, and I'm limiting myself to my new 16-35 f4, that was just delivered.
     
  5. Now this is very interesting. My Fun Holidays calendar shows this for tomorrow. Honestly, I just saw it. Welcome to the twilight zone:

    Either buy a lottery ticket or don't go outside for the day.

    And when we find ourselves in the place just right,

  8. OK folks, share your simple gifts.

  10. Bob, shot like that it most certainly looks like a very intense rocket's red glare! Nice start.

    Sweet shot.
     
  13. Nice one West. I'm a fan of negative space, so your framing sits well with me.

    Thanks John, I was going to bin it, but it seems to fit this CS well.
     
  16. Many thanks. That's my son, about 15 years ago.

    The more I look at this photo the more I like it. Goes in my keeper file.
     
  20. Glad to see that you came to your senses. :)  It took less than a nanosecond for me to wish I had made that photo. Very well done!
