ONE WEEK ONLY #2

April 2nd, 2018
That Rainbow Month was quite a challenge for me. Hopefully you all found your phojo's amongst all those colours. But if you hadn't been able to rein that phojo in, maybe you need a mini challenge. Also, as quite a few challenges are ending over the next day or two, a mini-challenge would be a good diversion. You want some direction but won't commit for the whole month?

A mini-challenge for one week only is what we all need!

The concept is simple: a prompt for each day of the week. Seven prompts, seven photographs. One week of bliss or one week of piss, depending on how you feel about the daily prompts. Interpret the prompts as you want. Do the whole week or just pick the days you feel like doing. If you're in hiatus at the moment, why not play along for the week. Some prompts are probably in your bucket list but you've been avoiding to do it - now is the time to try to do them.

Here are the prompts drawn in random order:

Monday - macro

Tuesday - HDR

Wednesday - Nature

Thursday - Refraction

Friday - Advertisement

Saturday - Negative space

Sunday - Tilt shift

NOTE: Check your camera if it has an HDR function; if not, any of the free programs has this function.

Just like the last time, you may interchange the prompts and days as you wish, or according to your schedule or mood. You may process your photos or post them SOOC, it's all your choice. And if they fit in with other challenges, that's even more fun!

Savvy? Then let's start tomorrow, Monday, April 2. We will tag our photos owo-2. You may also click on this link to view all photos with this tag.

And while we're at it, let's give kudos to ourselves and give each other shoutouts if there is a particular photo or two you actually like (whether it's another photographer's or yours, why not?) and post them here.

April 2nd, 2018
I love a little extra challenge! I'm in!
April 2nd, 2018
Thanks! I have to admit the Rainbow Challenge really was a challenge for me. I don’t know why that is. Hopefully, this one will get me out of a funk.
April 2nd, 2018
Gonna try
April 2nd, 2018
@kali66 Thanks so much for including me, this should be fun. Nice and short
April 2nd, 2018
A very good set of challenges. I'm in.
April 2nd, 2018
Works for me!
April 2nd, 2018
I will definitely try to keep up with this one!
April 2nd, 2018
@kali66 @summerfield thank you for the invitation. the idea is great. I will try to. not quite understand what that is HDR )))) I will look for )))
April 2nd, 2018
Ok!! Will try to start today, but might shift it along a day
April 2nd, 2018
A ace
Yes! I'll try at least :)
April 2nd, 2018
Insofar there's no "winning" and "hosting the new challenge" involved, I will join one or two of the prompts! Thanks @kali66 for calling!
April 2nd, 2018
@summerfield great idea, just what I need :)
April 2nd, 2018
Yeah! I haven't got much time this week but will try, love this challenge.
April 2nd, 2018
And thanks also to you, Vikki! Don't know why I got notification from Kali's account and not from yours!
April 2nd, 2018
Thank you for including me. I'm in!!
April 2nd, 2018
No thanks - not good at scheduling photos
April 2nd, 2018
@domenicododaro

I feel the same way about winning and hosting.
April 2nd, 2018
@olenadole

I also have to do some research for a couple of the days!
April 2nd, 2018
Thanks for the invite, I'm in:) @summerfield
April 2nd, 2018
Thank you for including me. I'm in...
April 2nd, 2018
@phil_sandford might give a focus to your Sainsbury's shop this week??!

@carole_sandford be interesting to compare a week of photos with you. Your camera must have all the buttons to do these.

Go on you two, join in!!! Jak 🌨️
April 2nd, 2018
I'm in but will have to miss Monday unfortunatelly...
April 2nd, 2018
I may have started backwards, but I'm in for most of it :)
April 2nd, 2018
Thanks Kali, I was pondering on what to do this week! @kali66
April 2nd, 2018
The rainbow challenge was certainly that. I still have a few days to finish. I haven't been around for a little while. Life and my daughter's 18th taking up my time. Oh and did I mention the great British weather? Will try to get back in the phoflow
April 2nd, 2018
@alfredrico its still monday somewhere :)
April 2nd, 2018
Thanks @Summerfield I'll try to join in on this.
April 2nd, 2018
@kali66 @Summerfield Thank you both for the kind invitation. After flash-of-red February and the Rainbow month, I think I need to roam free, for a while. But I keep this great prompts in the back of my head, and drop in and out eventually.
April 2nd, 2018
I didn't get on terribly well with the Rainbow challenge this year - struggled to find inspiration in the required colour on the given day. So I think I'll give this new challenge a go. Thanks for including me.
April 2nd, 2018
@30pics4jackiesdiamond We'll give it a go, at least now we've found both our cameras do HDR :-)
April 2nd, 2018
@olenadole I took a couple today using HDR button, didn't look much difference to auto to me!!!
April 2nd, 2018
@30pics4jackiesdiamond Google why and when you'd use it and then hope we get the weather that makes it worthwhile :-)
April 2nd, 2018
@kali66 Thank you for including me! I like it when there is a challenge.
April 2nd, 2018
Thank you for the invitation. It would be churlish to refuse.
April 2nd, 2018
Thank you @kali66 for including me :)
I will try at least a few days :D
April 2nd, 2018
I will give it a go .. uninvited .. ;o)
April 2nd, 2018
@bintal everyone is invited :)
April 2nd, 2018
@kali66 thank you .. looking forward to it.
April 2nd, 2018
@bintal perhaps there are people on your friends list you could invite? thats what i did
April 2nd, 2018
@kali66 Yes, I will have a look. I've already put a link up to this challenge.
April 3rd, 2018
Keep me in mind for the next challenge. Have some extra needlework on my plate this month.
April 3rd, 2018
Already planned my photos for this week, but for the next challenge I am in...

Tks for the invite ;)
April 3rd, 2018
@kali66 Thanks for tagging me!! Looks fun!
April 3rd, 2018
a play with HDR processing
April 3rd, 2018
loved this macro of April's @aecasey
April 3rd, 2018
That reminds me SOO much of the one night stand challenge!!
count me in!

@kali66 thanks for tagging me
April 4th, 2018
@kali66 @summerfield For the Advertising prompt, will a photo of an advertisement suffice or are we creating an ad?
April 4th, 2018
@teresamaro - it's almost the same as the album cover challenge. you take an object or anything and make it into an advertisement poster. that's my interpretation of the prompt. or perhaps emulate any advertisement you've seen and liked from a magazine.
April 4th, 2018
@summerfield got it!
April 6th, 2018
@bintal - you know you're always welcome. 😊 will take note to include and tag you for next time. enjoy!
April 6th, 2018
@annied - i agree with you. that's an awesome abstract macro. @aecasey
April 6th, 2018
@summerfield Thanks, much appreciated !
April 6th, 2018
I was rather taken with Suzanne's negative space
April 7th, 2018
kali's @kali66 HDR'd shot transported me to a time when i would only see this type of photos in the old libraries or galleries
April 7th, 2018
@joysabin 's prisms, clever!!!

April 8th, 2018
@kali66 I just saw this. I’m so sorry I missed this week, but I’m back and playing catch-up. Thanks for including me!
April 8th, 2018
@summerfield Thanks for running this challenge, it has been fun and good to look into different techniques.
April 8th, 2018
Well thank you Vikki for a great week of challenges. Despite a lack of time, I have really enjoyed the daily prompt. I think my favourite outcome was the advertisement - which really got me doing something different to the norm...
