It saddens me to forward the news that our good friend and fellow photographer, Matt Quinn, has passed.
As some of you may know, he had been battling cancer for a while and was on his way to recovery.
Please take a moment to remember him in your prayers.

My continuing efforts for experimentation of the SkyStar ferris wheel. Yesterday morning I caught myself back and with the sun behind the wheel for week #47. I was making an attempt to practice with a polarizer filter to substitute for a neutral density filter, knowing full well there is no comparison. Sooo, my stupidity gets the best of me to present my results anyway. Playing and practicing is all it is !!!
Dave
Nice! I like the graphic representation and the toning (and have done the same with a polarizer in a pinch, once even used my polarized sunglasses when I hiked into Athabasca Falls canyon with neither.

I don't think I would have ever thought of using sunglasses but I do think it may have worked to some degree. It is amazing what we can come up with for substitutions when forced.

More experimenting with post processing as this project is winding down to #48 of 52. I hope I catch up in time.

The zoom blur is interesting to me as I’ve not tried it for street images,monky for nature shots. I’ve tried motion blur and PS-induced types of blur with varying results. This really forces your eye to the subject. I’ll have to try it...

You’ll finish this marathon, Dave. Then join me for next year’s race! I found it motivated me during lazy or distracted periods.

Dave, personally, I've avoided the 365 and 52, even 12. The reason being is that I want to go out and photograph when the situation calls for it. I don't particularly like the idea of 'having' to go out and photograph. My reluctance is that I want the photographs to mean something, not something to just meet the limits, if that makes sense. I'd prefer to be inspired by the scene, as opposed to being forced to find something of inspiration.

In all reality, I've probably met the 12, 52, or even come close to the 365. But, I've never felt forced in the effort.

The zoom blur IS, as you say, interesting. Still, more practice is required to come close to what I'm wanting. As far as joining you for next years project, still remains to be a no. Altho, I have change my mind in the past, so maybe I'll put it down for a possibility? I just hate to commit to something I may not finish.

Bob, I know what you mean. This was my first ever 52 and I knew I would never be up for the 365. The 12 may get lost and forgotten about, so I won't go there. The thing is, I keep wondering "what else am I to do"? Retired now, wanting to stay active seems to become a challenge in itself. I saw on the tube yesterday, a man 105 years young and bowls twice a week and maintains an average of 135. He has been bowling for 90 years and his wife is still with him at 90 as well. It doesn't seem possible but I'm sure it not only keeps one physically fit but mentally as well.

Week #49 puts me back on track and it seems a train or railroad tracks would be appropriate for this week.I didn't get out to photograph any trains or tracks but I did capture some of Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal, which originally Cincinnati Union Terminal. I remember riding in on a train there while a cub scout along with the others in the pack, approximately 1960 era.

The Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal, originally Cincinnati Union Terminal, is a mixed-use complex in the Queensgate neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio, United States. Once a major passenger train station, it went into sharp decline during the postwar decline of railroad travel. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cincinnat ... n_Terminal

With its structural design I felt the need to, AGAIN, practice and use the fisheye lens. One of my goals at some point in a visit, is to try capture some images down by where the trains arrived and departed. I'm not sure if the area is open to the public any longer.
