Good entries today, I recognised a lot but stumped by Kathy, Brian, Anne and Ron. 1st     Jonathan.  Good composition and colours. 2nd    Marion.     Good detailed macro.   3rd     Anne.       Nice high key composition. Reminds me of flower petals. Well done everybody. Over to Jonathan. Carl. ---------------------------------------------------------------- RULES The full rules are here. Below is a summary. Photos must be taken between now and 8.30 p.m. No manipulation of your photo is allowed except for cropping and straightening. Photos cannot be changed once posted. If you want your photo to be judged, put ‘Mine’s in’ before or after the photo. The winner is to be announced at 9pm approx. The winner is to set the Challenge as soon as possible - 10am the next day at the very latest. If 1st fails to set the challenge by 10 am then the 2nd place takes over the daily challenge. (Or 3rd if neither first nor second are available). Any other decisions regarding changes to the rules for the day is the Judges decision on the day (Eg. Can I change my photo?). The person who sets the Daily Challenge should delete the thread after 2 days. How to upload to the IHC/Forums Here. (Courtesy: Scottishladdie) List of daily challenges here (Courtesy: Dipper)

This is a gallery where you are invited to post one of your images that you are pleased with so that folks can comment on them. So please enter the image into your own Gallery, to be found in your profile, then copy the image and a link back to it, into this thread. The Gallery will last for one week.    NO images from current competitions please - they have a place already and this is for those that might otherwise go unseen. Also, please, no links to other images which do already have a place of their own i.e. comp entries, blogs. There is only so much viewing time that any one person has and this gallery is an attempt at making available those photos which may otherwise be missed. If your image is posted badly or you are not satisfied with its presentation and decide to repost it then please remove one of them. Images cannot be changed mid-week - there is always next week, and please try to comment on as many other entries as you can - we all like to have feedback. As with all galleries, silence please whilst viewing - any difficulties then please ask in a separate thread or email me via my Contact button and comments please in folks' own galleries. I will replace the Gallery, barring unforeseen circumstances on Wednesday evening at approximately 7. p.m. And if you are having problems posting your images I did a tutorial (which is compatible with Mozilla Firefox) and it is here

Anyone want to play the three word game, I start with three words and then the next one adds three more. While I was........

I'm not a "serious" photographer, but I am serious about the meaning of words. There seems to be a lot of disagreement about the meaning of "bokeh", going by comments on both my and others' entries? There is (as yet) no "dictionary" entry for the word - I have the current versions of the main-line British-English dictionaries, so the best I can find is Wikipedia, who do at least seem to give a consensus definiton compared to anything else I can find: the blur,or the aesthetic quality of the blur,in out-of-focus areas of an image. Note that this does not include all-blurred pictures, spots, dots or any other shapes - just the quality of the blur. There is also some consensus that the quality of the blur should add to the quality of the entire picture, presumably by emphasising the in-focus element. If anyone has a better definition, please post it, and (naturally) the authority that justifies it!
