Week 12 good to WOW SOOC Green

Time to post our S(traight) O(ut) O(f) the C(amera) shots for Jill and Ashley's challenge.  I thought I had a clear pick, but turns out it is a little more out of focus than I like (which I don't think is salvageable with an edit) so I'm showing you three photos.  I just could not decide.  I want them all to become WOW.

My oldest child, Huckleberry*, age 11.  In a tree:
1/80  f/5.3  ISO 800  175mm
On a swing:
1/320  f/5.6  ISO 100  200mm 
And since Ashley said she was going to talk about the true color of grass, running toward me:
1/500  f/5.6  ISO 100  200mm
Come on!  Join in.  Every one is very nice, and you can learn a lot.

His expressions are priceless!! I'd love to see how you apply Ashley's tutorial to the grass!

Great pics! I really need to learn about the true color of grass also, since I take a lot of pics at the soccer field.

Great shots! Thank you for the kind comment on my blog! I saw from your profile that your favourite movie is Arsenic and Old Lace. Can I just say that you have FANTASTIC taste. That scene at the beginning where Cary Grant chases the around the tree? *sigh* Or where he opens the window box and finds the body inside? Hilarious.

Thanks for stopping by. :)

I think they're great! Love all of the action you captured, and it looks like there is a story behind the tree shot!

Great moments you captured! So looking forward to seeing what you do with these!

Julie said...

Hm, can't decide which is my favorite of the three, 1 or 2. Nice catches and it will be cool to see them again on Thursday!

What fun shots! Can't wait to see what you do with them :)

The swing shot is my fav - love the action and his expression! The tree shot is pretty cool, too! It would have been fun to have 2 shots (dipstych/collage) for the tree -- one like above w/ the tree in focus and your boy "hiding" and then have the next one with your boy in focus and the tree blurry -- kinda like you're peeking in and found him! :) But that's just me... and I usually think of these things on my stuff later, too! hehe!

Thanks for stopping by my blog -- to answer your question, the green curly things are wild onions. You can cut the green part (chives) to season food with and even dig up the bottom part (the root/ball/"onion" part.) They grow all over the place, and really pop up in the spring, then again (but not to the same extent) in late summer/fall.

I hope you can rescue that photo as it is a great moment to capture. The swing action shot is so good - reminds me of my days of just having great fun with my swing.
