Playing off the idea of being one third done with the 30 day photo challenge and the “rule of thirds.”

I like this one for a number of reasons - the lines, the texture, the light, the juxtaposition of the organic lines with the geometric lines, the color.

But I am biased since I took the photo. What do you think?

I used the flash to “control” the shutter speed and get just the light from the street light instead of blowing that light out and seeing the rest of the parking lot.

Sorry for the view up my nostrils. This was taken with the keychain cam on the way to work this morning, and enhanced with Picasa. I’m pretty impressed with what it can do given an admittedly limited amount of information to start with.

My second image for the challenge. Still using the 640x480 pixel keychain camera. It only interfaces with Windows, so I am playing around with Picasa for editing.

This one used “I’m Feeling Lucky” in the Basic Fixes tab, a small saturation boost and an application of “Warmify” in Effects, followed by some Soft Focus.

I like how it turned out, given the quality of the original image.

So I’ve taken the challenge. Here is my first photo, taken with a 0.3 megapixel camera on a cloudy day at the University of Arizona.

I know this is Low End DSLR, but I ride my bike to work and carrying all that equipment is a bit too much (since I’m already carrying my laptop, change of clothes, and lunch).

I’ll get some DSLR shots in on the weekends…
