Our world is made up of wood, and that’s the exciting thing about having a open challenge is that it gives people room to think and be creative. Looking at it from a sense of nature, or entropy, would be one view point of the subject. While someone else could go with wood working and a project at work shot with sawdust or a finished project. Even to a handmade antique generations old that hold sentimental value. With wood this project was one to make it your own and show something of your style.

There was no show this week Toby and I have picked your best photos.

The weekly challenges are still going! You can find all the past challenges on the PRTV page along with next week’s challenge #prtv_silhouette. To enter post your photos on Instagram before noon next Friday with the tags #prtv and #prtv_silhouette.

Toby’s DUAL Winners:

I loved both of these wood trail/boardwalk shots.  @kapechick has a simple shot but the wood of the path mixed with the all the young trees around makes this a very woodsy shot.  And @adamstewart similar boardwalk shot offering us a glimpse of green hills in the distance is excellent, love the way the path leads us off to the green and blue.  Nice work!!

Love the wider shot here that shows wood from untouched to almost unrecognizable. Nicely composed and captured!

Roy’s Winner:

Technically “reclaimed” by nature this set piece by Maritza of Hobbiton is a great focus for wood.  As Toby said the place is made to be photogenic. For one it’s a great trip photo while focusing on an element of the scene rather than the grand scale of it all.  As for wood It’s a great draw for the eye with good composition and naturally framed by the plants.

Roy’s Honorable Mentions:

Wood as art in this case is a great way to show texture and a good repeating pattern. I like that Christye chose to crop in losing a bit of the face to get closure and frame out the carving. It makes for a strong photo and an interesting portrait albeit wood.

Being from Michigan we have trails pretty much everywhere. When you get a nice winding wood path like this it sets a scene. With the brush coming up and a leading line to the horizon it makes for a great focus for the eye to follow the trail.

 #bison #snowface ~  Captured with the #Sony #a7rII and Canon 100-400 and heavily cropped because I follow the #YellowstonePledge :)
 In Yellowstone National Park the roads are paved with snow and go straight for miles. Yesterday was sweet, today was the sweetest! Captured here on our way to Hayden Valley - a #dreamyplace like no other. #YellowstonePledge ~  Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and Canon 24-105 lens
 Yesterday ended as epically as it began (see my earlier post?) As we made our way out of the park the setting sun lit up this line of trees and steam from geothermal activity - a single line of animal tracks lead the way to this scene. #iloveyellowstonenp #YellowstonePledge ~  Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and Canon 70-200 ️‍️ EXIF: Exactly the same as the morning shot posted earlier.
