This weeks photo challenge is RED

I’m addicted to red ATM, I see it everywhere I go, and I just want to collect it in every way that I can!

So basically your photo can be of anything you like, as long as the key subject in the photograph is red. There can be other colours in there too, and the subject can be small or big, so there can be a small amount of red in the photo, or it could be all red if you like, the choice is yours original.gif

Oh and it has to be naturally red, not changed in processing  wink.gif





Some examples, but using the colour yellow...

YAY! I’m so excited to see the entries!




The rules:
One photo per person which has been taken this week (starting TUESDAY). Everyone is welcome to join in. Competition will start Tuesday with submissions ending the following Monday.

If you wish, please note your rating after your image:
Rating 1 Beginner (just got my camera)
Rating 2 Amateur (learning about settings)
Rating 3 Hobbyist (have a good grasp of the theory)
Rating 4 Semi Pro (improved well beyond when I started)
Rating 5 Pro/serious hobbyist (I'm well experienced and have been doing this for quite a while)

All images must be up by next MONDAY at (9pm EDST, 8pm EST, 7.30pm CST, 6pm WST) for inclusion.

Posted 04 May 2012 - 06:56 PM

Hi everyone, I feel like I've missed so much.  The last few weeks have been ridiculous, with both my in laws and my mother visiting from interstate (separately), I got an abcess on my leg that had me out of action and the computer broke down.  TWICE!

So now we have the computer home, picked it up day before yesterday and I'm trying to rush an online photography course that I'd signed up for that runs for 4-5 weeks and its actually now finished but I'm only up to week 2!  So yeah might be a while before I feel like I can relax a bit again.

And worst of all, I havn't taken a photo on my dslr for weeks!!!!!!   sad.gif   Looking forward to going through the past few challenges to see what you've all been up to.

Love the 'red' idea abbygirl.

sorry to double post, but susie 25 just gotta say what a great shot of the rose!  Love it.

A Pocket Full, OMG you sound like you have had such a bad time,  hopefully things get better, look forward to seeing your pictures again.  BTW how is the online course? worth it?

Took this tonight, it is a warning light for the boats, I loved how the reflection hit the water.
