    There's a choice of subjects for this month's assignment - after a furious round of late voting.

    So you've got Transformation or Motion - or both if you're feeling clever!

    The idea is that members will go out and try to find their own way of interpreting the monthly theme thus improving their photographic eye. Posting is open to all MR members, and encouraged.

    You must have taken the picture yourself between 7 and 31 October 2006. If you took a picture that fits the assignment but was taken earlier, then post it in the Gallery: Transformation or Motion thread instead.

    Anyone can enter from those with (D)SLRs from P&S to cameraphones although they should be pictures that you think are good rather than just snapshots. The goal is not to 'win' but to share the enjoyment of taking pictures and learn from others.

    Some basic rules on commenting (basically be nice!) are listed. Changes to the rules should be discussed there just as remarks about the topic(s) chosen should be kept in the poll thread. Let's keep this thread just pictures and comments on them if possible

    Post your pictures in this thread by the end of October with a title and we'll start commenting (make sure you title your comments referencing the pic you are commenting on)

    easy ones first

    What could be easier for "Transformation" than seasons like fall or spring. I like the muted browns of fall, which we have a lot of this year.

    Motion induced transformation of a beer can

    The fall (seasonal) transformation picture was such a big hit, thought I would try this. Wanted to use a sledge hammer and a stump, but had to settle for the foot hammer instead. Maybe someone so equipped could try it?

    I have some of those shots but they are way dark and I don't have a decent PP program to make those shots any better...

    I stumbled across this today. It's not even a public-picnic area and it's pretty out of the way (you have to make a real effort to get to it). The stuff looks like it had been there for a while. Reminds me of those "all-night" parties we had as teenagers - of course I'm sure we cleaned up after ourselves :p

    Thanks! I was in the right place at the right time! Actually, I was walking on the path alongside the lake and startled several ducks which had been basking in the sun. I started shooting quickly as they quacked in alarm and headed for the safety of the lake.....

    Haha, sweet pool shot. ;)


    I'm trying to decide which photo to submit. I think this one is fine. There's quite a few photos I took yesterday that would qualify.

    EDIT: Had trouble deciding which photo was better to show. This photo exhibits motion, but is nowhere near my sharpest or most well exposed photo taken yesterday, unfortunately. :eek:

    Cheers gauchogolfer.

    I am a bit annoyed about the reflections however, I might have to go and reshoot with a hood.

    I actually didn't find the reflections distracting; to me they seemed almost like a vignetting effect, only light rather than dark. I'd like to see one taken with a hood on, but it's great as is.

    i agree. let's see one without reflections. my guess is that it's going to look to "sterile" or to clean. i think it's perfect as it is.
