MM 2-12: Monochrome Madness 2-12

One week to go to the next theme which is Water.  I hope you have all been out experimenting with images of water.  I feel like I’ve been out doing nothing but water.  The new filters are partly responsible for that.  I have already started getting images for it and I have to say they are good. Some great interpretations of the theme.  I bet you can’t wait to see them, but you will have to wait, until next week that is.

If you want to take part then please send your images to me in the usual way, all details are below.

Shall we take a look at the images for this week?

seafarers-bridge-yarra-river-melbourne

My image for the week.  It is one I took last weekend in the city of the Seafarers Bridge using my new Formatt Hitech Firecrest 16 filter.  I wanted to try it out along the river in the city.  It is quite amazing, where it was bright sunlight and I was doing 6 minute exposures.  It was a little bit too long really, but I don’t have a lot of experience using the filters, I am sure I will get better.

Don’t forget all the instructions on how to enter your own images are at the bottom of the post.  If you have entered an image then please remember to check your image in the gallery, scroll down and see if anyone has left you any comments.

Now, Monochrome Madness will continue next week and if you wish to participate and submit an image here is how you do it:-

  • You must email me the image you want to include and if you have a blog or website, or somewhere else, please include the link. My email address is leanne@leannecole.com.au
  • The image size should be low res, so the largest side should be 1000 pixels or less.
  • Please insert either your name or your blogs name in the file name.
  • Remember I am on Australian time, so with GMT I am +11 hours at the moment, I publish my post on Wednesday morning.
  • If you need more help with sending images, and get confused about time zones, etc, well, there is a great website called The World Clock, if you go to that and look at Melbourne time, if it’s before 6pm on Tuesday evening, then you can still send me images.  If it’s after that time, you can send me an image, but it will be set aside for the following week.
  • Remember to include a link to your blog or website.
  • Please remember to resize your images, it is fairly simply, you just need to go into any editing software and usually under Image you will find, resize, scale, or image size, something like that and you can resize your image there. Change the dimensions to pixels and make the longest side 1000 pixels or smaller, hit return, and for most types of software that should change the other side automatically as well. Just remember to save it with a different name so you know it is the smaller version.  If you have any problems, please contact me, I don’t mind helping out.

Please note you don’t have to be a WordPress blogger to be in this challenge, you can have a link to a Facebook page, a Flickr page, anywhere really, or no link.  We just want to encourage people to do monochrome images, just for the madness of it. Just to let you know also, that as soon as the challenge is published, all emails and images you have sent me are deleted from my computer.  I respect your copyright and would never keep any of the images.

MM 2-11: Monochrome Madness 2-11

Welcome to another week of Monochrome Madness, another small week, but still lots of great images to look at and great blogs to visit.

Don’t forget the water theme is coming up in 2 weeks.  I’ve been out taking lots of photos of water and I hope to get a good image for the challenge.  I’ve already seen a couple and they are quite amazing.

Shall we get on with the Madness now.

marysville-mushroom-macro-monochrome

On the weekend I went for a drive to Marysville to visit some waterfalls.  On the way to one we walked through some thick areas, places where the sun hasn’t been so it was still very moist from the recent rains. We saw these tiny mushrooms along the path.  I tried taking photos with my macro, but the light wasn’t on our side. We are going to go back though, soon, and I will be hunting for mushrooms with my macro lens.

MM 2-10: Monochrome Madness 2-10

A few people have been asking me what the numbers mean, so I thought I might just give you a quick description.  The 2 stands for second year, and the other number is the week, this week it is 2nd year, and week ten.  I hope that helps.

The theme last week was great and the response good too, it was great to see lots of entries for the theme, and I’m looking forward to the next one.  Don’t forget it is for the first week in June and the theme is water.

So I thought I would give you an idea for a water theme, so here is mine for this week.

Marysville-phantom-falls-phone-galaxynote4

This is a very different for me, I don’t normally show photos that I have taken with my phone, but this is one, or rather about 15 photos.  I did a spurt of photos and then put them altogether in photoshop.  I did have to do a bit of work to get the water to look like that. It isn’t perfect, but it was something different and I enjoyed experimenting with it.

MM 2-9: Monochrome Madness Theme Fences

First week of the month and here is our next themed Monochrome Madness.  I have been getting entries for the them of Fences since it was first announced, which was great.  Here we are with the second one.

I have picked another theme for next time, and I think it is pretty broad and definitely one that I love.

The next theme is Water and will be for the week of MM 2-13, the first week of June.

It can be any interpretation of water, up to you what you do.  Good luck.

harcourt-fences-paddock-grasses-monochrome

I wish I could say I took this in the last month, but I have seen any interesting fences, but when I think of all the fences I’ve ever taken this is my favourite and the one that stood out in my mind.  It was thinking of this fence that made me revisit my photos of Harcourt yesterday.  Such a lovely area for photos.

Don’t forget all the instructions on how to enter your own images are at the bottom of the post.  If you have entered an image then please remember to check your image in the gallery, scroll down and see if anyone has left you any comments.

As usual for a theme there will be two galleries, one for the theme and one for those that just wanted to send in images.

MM 2-8: Monochrome Madness 2-8

Next week is our theme again, so I hope you have all been getting out and taking lots of photos of fences.  I have to work out what I am going to do as well.  So many different types of fences to take photos of.  So, again, you don’t have to do the theme, there will be a gallery with the theme photos and then one of normal images.  Shall we get on with the madness that is monochrome now?

bridge-brisbane-ranges-steiglitz-monochrome

This image was taken on Sunday when I went exploring with my friend.  It is an bridge that you have to drive over to get to the Brisbane Ranges. Someone recently told me about the ranges, and I am embarrassed to say I can’t remember who they were, I’m so sorry.  They are wonderful and I will have to go back in Spring.  You have to go to a town called Steiglitz, which is amazing too.  It is completely off the grid apparently, so the people there don’t have electricity from the main power companies.  I need to find time to wander around around it.

MM 2-7: Monochrome Madness 2-7

Here we are again, do I say that every week? I hope you have all had a great week seeking out your monochrome images for Monochrome Madness this week.  I would like to welcome all the new people who have sent images for the first time and say thank you to those who are regular contributors.  It’s been so good doing this, I love seeing what images will work in monochrome. Finding time to respond to the emails has been hard, so if I get some time I will, but I hope you won’t mind if it doesn’t happen.

Shall we start?

I took this image last Sunday in Fitzroy Gardens in between downpours.  These were growing on some dirt and there were a lot of them.  I was using my macro lens so I got these with that.

MM 2-6: Monochrome Madness 2-6

Each week I think I will start this post early, yet I don’t ever seem to get it done. I am not sure why, but I think it’s because I can’t start until I know what image I am going to do. Sometimes I start working it out early, other times, actually most times, I don’t seem to start it until the Monday or Tuesday.  Today hasn’t been any different, and I have finally got my image done for the week.  It is good to see that most of you are much better at getting  your images done early and then send them to me.

queenstreet-melbourne-buildings-anz-tower

Without a doubt, this would have to be one of my favourite buildings in the city.  This image was taken a few weeks ago, actually the same morning as the image I took for last weeks MM.  I have changed the sky in this one though.  I was also trying some new things.
