Hello everyone, and happy Monday!
This week’s theme is Shape and form
I thought we’d get back to basics this week, with a relatively straightforward concept. You can interpret the idea of shape and form in any way you like but here are a few ideas to whet your appetite.
How about this beautiful iceberg, by Eric Welch for starters? The minimalist approach he’s taken makes us consider the beautiful shapes created by nature and the way they reflect in a mill pond still sea.
Of course, if the weather outside is dreadful (as it is here right now!) you could look around the house for a subject. This picture of wine glasses is a good example - the simple repetition draws us into the shapes created by the lines of glasses.
Finally, here’s a photo I shot at Hampton Court Palace recently. This grand staircase was a beauty in its own right but the combination of lines, curves and shadows really caught my eye.
So, there you have a few ideas to get you started. I’m looking forward to seeing what we all come up with!

Winners of the last theme
Last week’s post processing theme really got everyone exploring the possibiltues of what they can do with their photos. We have two winners this week, with equal numbers of votes. They are:
@heidiegerman who accentuated the wonderful textures in these sage leaves by using Silver Efex Pro.
And @russsmith whose avian friend (is it a vulture?) looks resplendent when split toned.
Congratulations to Heidi and Russell!
