Thank you all very much
all of the entries were and are a joy to see
it was difficult picking out some more then others


~ *************** ~

Congratulations to the winner

and # 1 & # 2

Winner

# 1 TeeKay


Bryce Canyon' Pathway to Hell'


wow, terrific sight
looking down it certainly seems like the pathway to hell. when taking the shot I imagine one felt near to falling. is the shot taken from the top of the hoodoos ? (was reading up about the Bryce 'canyon' )
:cool:the rock is a very beautiful colour
and the different formations (amphitheaters)? , they must be a sight to see especially when the sun is in a certain direction...must be spectacular there


# 2 Rpolister


'Waved Path'


beautiful capture. this must be sheer happiness to the young bikers
a thrilling experience and great idea. good to have in the community
even the mounds of grassy banks were well thought out to help the young audience to sit down while watching the action which in turn helps the young dare devils to really show their stuff :)
I'm sure many will beinterested in having something like it locally in their own neighbourhood
love the shadows you caught in the picture also

# 3 Sara


'Non Traditional Pathway


Beautiful shot. great lines running in unison all over
the flooring pattern also the wooden panelling reaching down the walls of the narrow corridor
even the ceiling has lines which blend in with the overall scene
the bl/ wh is very effective, giving the appearance of a starkness which in reality (and in colour) probably shows homely wear and warmth . (meaning the starkness looks good )
the light at the end is a little over exposed and the eye is drawn to that .....but everything is lovely sharp and crisp while travelling down


Congratulations to all



Rowdyred : 'Tiny Woodsman'

it is a really nice shot. I love the beautiful shades all around the child and I like the space left in front for the boy to walk into . it is blown a little right there though and its a pity some of the sunlight was not caught on the boy's face but its very hard to have everything just exactly right , especially with moving children and 'certain very special moments ' captured forever. its much better to have caught it then not. lovely shot

Boutty

'untitled'

very nice shot. the dark passageway gives the impression of hoodies entering and your life is maybe in grave danger
(or your camera is ..worse still)
:)
the flash from your camera (I think thats the light source) highlights some kind of handrail which makes me suspect it is a passageway to some underground rail system . something like that ?
it could be light from an overhead opening causing the light to fall just there
the far lights along the wall don't throw more light in just the areas underneath and around which makes me think it could be light from your flash showing up more detail. it is a very nice and mysterious shot

Ink

'Long Steep Climb'


it certainly seems like it is a lovely walk with a great view of the sea. that grassy bank leading down adds lovely colour to the scene. nice shadows of the wall along the roadway also
a slightly sharper or more toned treatment may help add to its beauty. that beautiful cliff rock leading the eye out to the sea looks great

Andrey

'Downhill Stairway'


the path seems gorgeous to walk along ,its a lovely shot
it may be tricky at times stepping over the gaps in the steps... but makes it a pathway both heavenly and hellish :) which the children will enjoy and definitely challenging
looks beautiful

Congratulations again to everyone
thank you very much

POTN G-series Speed Challenge #121 - Pathways


thank you all
here's the next challenge :

pathways
it could be pathways to paradise or pathways to hell
or even crazy pavements
wherever you live or wherever you visit you maybe have a favourite path which you have to journey along
maybe one you take an instant dislike to..... yet have to travel along it at some stage

hope this suits some of you
to take a shot at whatever fills your emotions in an all seeing way at certain stages of your journey
(maybe walking the dog or cycling)

:lol:
either kill it once and for all (not the dog)
or make it come alive with a photo
(even nettles have their uses on the borders )

nice composition and all the other focus pocus skill needed will be taken into account
:D
with thanks in advance
and safe travelling along the paths of life

Thanks, Marie! Glad to find the old G1 can still occasionally hold its own against stiff competition ;)

I had to wait quite a while until the evening light was right for that shot, somewhat intimidated by another photographer nearby who had an industrial-grade tripod bearing a plate camera the size of a small suitcase. Looked like the ghost of Ansel Adams, but I daren't ask!

Then I blew it! I should have taken numerous shots with varying exposure, or at least made sure I exposed for the highlights, since the contrast was extreme. But this only one I took had the foreground highlighted and completely washed out, so I had quite a bit of work to do with PSP.

That area is a photographer's paradise, with landscapes of other-worldly colours and weird formations.

Next challenge will be posted soom.

Thanks marie for hosting another interesting topic and comments on our entries. Congratulations to the winners - TeeKay, Rpolister & Sara. I enjoyed seeing all the different interpretation of paths everyone submitted and feedbacks.

You are right marie about my image; it was taken at an underground rail system. No flash was used; just a tad local curve to brighten that part in Photoshop.
