Like that Lego shot Clockity :thumbs: And nice one Boink, you have a good eye for interesting things :)

Good work everyone, we made it! :clap:

Massive thanks to my gorgeous wife Jessica for being my subject for the month :luv: (And also to you lot on the forums for putting up with my repetition!) I found it a challenge to restrict myself to people this year, especially trying to maintain some variety during those weekday evenings, but I think I learned some stuff :)

Just to say that I've not actually missed a day (although there are plenty of **** pictures in my set!) but due to various circumstances I've not been able to upload them...
I'll do a massive update this weekend I hope!

Good work everyone who has managed it! :)

Boink - well spotted - I'm getting a Wall-E crossed with Adam West Batman vibe :)

Also love the Lego Clockity, quite fancy one of those figures to add to the set.

Queeg - that dusk portrait is nicely lit. And I like the berries Jessica, great colours!

Looking forward to seeing Q's photos when he get settled in one spot long enough to post them ;-)

My last one, inspired by Q&J at the Chapel, I went to a local Abbey Ruins, to photograph some nice trees I'd spotted a few months ago. It gave me a Gladiator vibe, so I processed it in golden sepia.

Im working on them:D Will be a mix of Pano's and Single shot photos and not all landscapes! Filling my spare time with this and reading the Nikon D3200 manual in PDF on the bus when travelling.

Some great Photos posted so far. Just found out today that Autostitch (http://www.cs.bath.ac.uk/brown/autostitch/autostitch.html) have done a 64Bit Demo version that works really well and has been available since Nov 2013 onwards I think. Works alot quicker and no "Out of Memory" Errors so far. Worth a try as gives full use for spherical Pano's.

Oh yes indeed - I have an old Lumix point and shoot that I plan to convert to IR one of these days. Good thinking!

Thanks all, that was fun. Can't wait for the catchup photos.

Andrew, you can get Lego parts on Bricklink (the Lego Ebay), so you don't need to buy an expensive set for specific parts.

I've been trying to replicate the tintype look - 25 has the red channel reduced and all blue channels increased fairly dramatically. I've read that collodion is very sensitive to the UV end of the spectrum so was messing around to see.
It's not flattering, but with the right subject it could be cool :)

I like it Woz - love the shallow DoF too.
And on the opposite end of the scale, I love that sunflower :)
