Transitions, your challenge for the week, and honestly one of the trickier subjects from our 52-week list. Trying to catch a process or period from one state to another can be difficult when you consider your camera only can catch one moment in a photo. We had some interesting choices this week, some with complicated editing and others with nice timing, you guys did a great job.

Going to a technical challenge next we’re going back to basics with the rule of thirds. When starting out it’s good to learn the rules of composition for a place to start from as a photographer. From there we learn how to break the rules for photos, but having those basics down are key.

Watch Toby’s quick tip on just this at: Quick Tip #10 – Rule Of Thirds

To enter post your photos on Instagram before noon next Friday with the tags #PRTV and #PRTV_ruleof3rds.

Toby’s Winner:

The smooth water to the turbulent falls, the salmon returning to stream, the moment caught all transitions and I like this shot!

My favorite winter sky colors! Photo 2/3 best viewed in grid mode.

I love the colors here, a lovely example of ombre!

The from behind perspective, the other car in the future – this image is balanced really nicely.

A little tricky down on the bridge but a nicely done transition.

Roy’s Winner:

Roy’s Honorable Mentions:

Brakes! Well that’s one transition I didn’t think I’d see but a nice one and I’m glad the horse is okay.

Alternatively to Justin’s photo another day to night transition but this time in camera. It’s a nice transition shot.

 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
