May 2007 Photo Assignment -- Competition with Voting

The theme for May was chosen by the winner of our April competition -- Sweetlight

Photo Assignment: "Grace"
Sweetlight's statement regarding the assignment: "I ...think a bit of grace has taken me a long way in some situations and I think it's a word that should be contemplated by many. I'd like it open to wide interpretation please.

This link will take you to the dictionary.com assortment of definitions and how it can be used, such as verb, noun, etc."

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/grace

Time-frame for shooting your image: May 1, 2007 to May 25th, 2007 (a Friday) at 9 pm EDT. [This translates to 1:00 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time.]


What info do you submit? Tell us when you shot the image, any shooting info you have (shutter speed, ISO, f-stop, filters used, post-processing (normal photo processing allowed - sharpening, adjust exposure -- this isn't the place for art filters [we have forums for that too!])

Feel free to add info about what/where you shot, and why you chose your subject/composition, etc. when you post your image in this thread.

What does the winner get? The winner gets to choose the next assignment PLUS gets all the nice accolades that come from being chosen "Winner".

Post your photo submissions in this thread, and we'll have the separate thread for discussion of this assignment and your comments regarding any of the entries that strike your fancy.

Re: May 2007 Photo Assignment -- Competition with Voting

I'll probably change this out before the end of the month as I've been searching and searching for what I'd really like to do without any results so far.

This picture represents the ultimate grace IMHO.

Shot was taken in existing light at ISO 400 (although I most likely could have used 200 as well). I used aperture priority and paid no attention to the shutter speed. Although the shot wasn't taken within the last month, it has taken me until now to process a lot of the pictures I've taken in the last 6 months. I hope this qualifies.

As a child I had to say Grace before having any meals and this is the one that I would have liked to have said.

Picture was taken with a Panasonic Lumix FZ-20.
F 2.8
1/40 sec
ISO 200
Shot in macro mode.
