Selective focus is a technique that can be used to make specific objects stand out in a photograph. Focus on the specific part of a subject you want to highlight or emphasize, and “ignore” the rest, letting it fall into the blur of the background or the foreground. Selective focus is often used for subject studies, to draw attention to a subject or part of a subject and evoke a meditative or contemplative mood when viewing the subject in context of its blurred but recognizable surroundings.
A telephoto lens and a wide aperture size (or f/stop) can help achieve this technique.
Submit your best shots of things that are blue, like the blue ocean, the blue sky..etc... Just make sure it's BLUE!
Anything made of wood a piece of lumber, a chair, a spoon as long as it is ONLY wood. Trees are off theme.
Silhouettes. Just one catch. No humans or animals involved.
I am sure a moderator will give some websites on this for anyone not sure what a starburst is.
The light source for the "burst" can be sunlight or artificial lighting.
Just two catches though. One, no starburst lens be used. Two, only one starburst is allowed in the image.
This should be easy. Just one catch. It must be worn by a human or animal. Have fun with this.
Share you best photos of anything beautiful in nature like flowers, mountains, waterfalls, etc... Don't include people in your shots though.
Share your best photos of sunrises and sunsets. Silhouettes with the sun setting or the sun rising in it is good too.
