This week was a color challenge and one of the trickier ones at that focusing on white.  White needs to be white, like I mentioned before exposure and your histogram is key. Otherwise, you end up with gray or blown out photos. For the most part looking through entries, you guys did great. That said there were a few entries that didn’t make it due to being quite dull to the point of a gray photo, watch that histogram! White was key this week and beyond a lot of swan entries, we had varied subjects from snow to bubbles, great for a color challenge. 

As for next week’s challenge, we apologize in advance to the introverts out there as you’ll be trying to go for candid photography. This doesn’t mean you’re stuck doing street photography, albeit that’s what most think starting out. Candid photos focus on getting your photo without a posed appearance, catching people in the act, and that’s your challenge this week.

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

Toby’s Winner:

This is a cute, cute, photo! Not super sharp, with focus just starting to hit her face but this is white! The color of the bathtub really makes it stand out.

Toby’s Honorable Mentions:

This is one of those shots where I was like “ooh this could be a little whiter”. Still, it’s one of those shots that the thumbnail really stood out to me. It could be a touch brighter and the gray in the corner could go but it’s still a strong photo.

This is one of those easy things to get, a toy or model. The white is a bright right, it’s centered and makes for a nice photo.

Lots of white in Yellowstone with this photo. Throwing it black and white helped as the sky doesn’t detract from the overall monochrome look of the land below.

Roy’s Honorable Mentions:

Honestly, bubbles were not one that came to mind for a white challenge but it does well to frame your daughter in the shot. It’s a fun photo with an honest expression that makes for a cute entry.

Spotted this Northern Shrike sitting at the top of a tree over the weekend. Not my best shot, but I've never seen one before, so I'm glad I got the pic. Pretty skittish bird. Even with the Sigma, I wasn't able to get any closer before he took off. Turns out these guys are kind of vicious. They are sometimes called "butcher birds" because they are known to impale their prey on thorns or barbed wire! . . . #prtvwildchallenge #hiking #richardbongstaterecreationalpark #outdoors #winter #nothernshrike #shrike #prairie #nature #weekendhike #trail #kenoshacounty #wisconsin #explorewisconsin #ig_wisconsin #landscape #prtv #stiffupperlens #lonelyplanet #canonfanphoto #5dm3 #sigma #sigma150600 #igerswisconsin #birdsofinstagram #bird #birdstagram #discoverwisconsin #treetop

A northern shrike in the sky is a great way to get a white photo. Not to mention from a birding standpoint they are one of the harder subjects to shoot without flying away.

 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
