Love was in the air and it meant a good time to get your camera out to shoot the holiday. Theme’s like this are nice to include as love is universal but also means something just slightly different for each person. Those differences bring us together, tear people apart, and make for some great photos this week that vary from photographer to photographer. This week we also had a tutorial by Rose for the DIY Heart Shaped Bokeh for Valentine’s Day and thank you to those who participated.

For next week as love was a bit of an easier assignment for everyone with the holiday, next week’s will be a bit trickier. As we are slowly seeing spring come closer and winter start to fade your challenge this week will be shooting a transition. A process or period of changing from one state or condition to another. This could mean life to death, such as cut flowers, or here in Michigan the coming of Robins as the transition to spring.

To enter post your photos on Instagram before noon next Friday with the tags #PRTV and #PRTV_transition.

Toby’s Winner:

Lovely moment – I like the off-center subjects and the soft muted colors.

Toby’s Honorable Mentions:

A for effort and A for execution – nicely done!

Simple, pretty though I would have cropped it enough to fill the frame with the pink rose.

And final mention – Rose had lots of great examples but I really like the cute little playmobile people with heart bokeh – Thanks for taking the time to share your articles with the community Rose.

Rose’s Winner:

With so many great shots I picked a bokeh winner and a non-bokeh winner! I love the composition and the monochromatic treatment.

This image is so sweet, and I love the soft treatment. It’s perfect for the subject.

Rose’s Honorable Mentions:

Roy’s Winner:

Incorporating Rose’s tutorial from a background element to prop works well. It’s a nice cute shot that works well for this challenge.

Roy’s Honorable Mentions:

Looking to the future in love can make for a great moment. Shooting down the path with the trees acting as a natural frame puts all the focus on the lovely couple.

What’s Valentine’s without candy? You made a really great photo that incorporates the color theme well with your shot and used a pile large enough to fill the frame nicely.

 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 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
