Every week we select a new theme, and then go out and shoot that theme. This week the theme is Precision. As always be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme, creativity is what we're looking for.


Show us some Precision


Here are the rules:
1. Shots need to be taken between Tuesday, after the new theme is posted and the following Monday by sunset (Whenever that is for you). Because this activity is supposed to encourage us to get out and shoot, please don't post old shots from your archives. Snapshots and art are equally welcome -- just get out & shoot, and then share!
2. Post your shots at any time during the week.
3. Post a maximum of two shots if you're uploading them to POTN (i.e., attaching them). You can post more than two if you're linking to shots that are not hosted by POTN (i.e. embedding them) but keep within POTN rules. Also keep within POTN rules about size. A copy of the size rules can be found here: IMAGE POSTING RULES
That's it! Have fun! As always be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme, creativity is what we're looking for.
An index to previous weeks can be found here: POTN WORLDWIDE PHOTO WEEK INDEX

That's it!
Have fun!

I needed Precision just to get the screwdriver into the screw :-P :-P

Here is a 2:1 macro (2x life size) of a tiny screw, I placed it right over a dime to help show the size (no cropping done).

Oh, nice, Joeseph. Exposure from front to back is perfect!

Painting and assembling these tiles must have required some degree of precision.

thanks Levina! taken from the hop-on-hop-off bus that thankfully did a loop around the building so had a bit of time to get the shot lined up as we went along (view is pretty much the same from the other side)

Thank you, joeseph. The foliage background was a last-minute idea for posing the saw. Loquat prunings happened to be around. Our 30-foot loquat tree is a major nuisance to clean up after, but it supports a lot of wildlife.

While changing the battery in my Jeep key I saw something wrapped with precision...

Was it one shot (if so, great dynamic range!) or a blend?
Just curious, Joeseph, because I only took shots like this with my old 5D and always had to do one for the passage and one for the other end as that would always be blown with just the one shot. Or if I exposed for that, the passage would be terribly underexposed.

just one shot - the late afternoon light is all coming from lefthand side and there are archways that let in a lot of light so it wasn't as difficult as it looks (just getting the timing right as to when to fire the shutter as the bus was moving!)

shot of the front of the building - the "passage" is ground floor, just behind the top of the steps if that makes sense.

Ah yes, I now understand how you could get this result with a single shot.

Looking at the original photo I can now see the pockets of light on the left. I totally missed those before.

Thanks so much for taking the time to explain it to me, Joeseph!

And it’s still a great pic, regardless. :-)
