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!

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.

 They all had dreams. They all had family. They died for us. Arlington National Cemetery is a heavy place, I can't help but think about all the pain and suffering when presented with row upon row of a headstone representing a fallen soldier and my mind boggles that this still happens today. On this little planet hurtling through an incomprehensible ginormous space - some people think it is ok to kill each other. :( p.s. You should google Cornelius H. Charlton - his story is interesting p.p.s My grandfather is buried in Arlington- my Mom's father was instrumental in designing and implementing early radar systems for the Navy in WW2. Captured with the #Sony #a7RII and #Canon #70200L at 200mm and f/3.2
 #mondaymorningshare - I want to see your failed experiments or favorite photos from the last week. GO TO http://photorec.tv/fb to share your fav image from the past week. Here's my #failedexperiment The US Capitol at Sunset. File this under because I could - a 2 minute exposure with the use of a NISI Filters 10-stop ND. I hoped I would get some interesting wispy movement in the clouds but nothing developed. Next I tried a 6 minute exposure (swipe to see it) and while there may be a little more movement in the clouds it certainly wasn't anything to get excited about. And while I often recommend very carefully shooting building and monuments as symmetrically as possible, I purposefully shot from right of center to avoid losing Ulysses S. Grant statue in the front of the capitol. *  Sony #A7RII and #Canon 2470mm with #NiSiFilters #10StopND
 I love traveling with other photographers on #mckaylive trips. Kari, a trip participant, noticed this line of trees and shared her perspective with me. I had glanced at them but hadn't noticed how nicely they lined up when standing at a certain spot #teacherbecomesthestudent :) We had a great day leaving behind the cherry blossom crowds for a much quieter walk around #HarpersFerryWV. And a visit to #BolivarHeights a much fought over hilltop during the civil war and the site of the largest surrender of Union troops - over 12,000 men surrendered to Stonewall Jackson. *  Captured with the #Panasonic #GH4 and #1235mm lens
