This week the devil was in the details and your challenge to make those detail elements the key subject in your photos. We had a lot of great entries this week and it was honestly hard to pick a winner with so many nice shots. Details can tell their own story or add another element to a larger subject, especially as part of an album, making them a key point to master. This didn’t mean all macro shots this week, and it’s nice to see some of you focused on the larger picture such as a trap door, a tattoo, or a candid photo of shoes in a special moment

Whether it’s furry, feathery, or scaly we want to see the pets of the world next week in #PRTV_pets. Pets are friendly which makes them an easy subject to photograph, or a hard one, if you have my dog that hates a camera. Your not limited to your own pet, so if you don’t have one of your own borrow a friend’s or hit a dog park. Have fun and take this chance to be creative!

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

And the team!

Toby’s Winner:

It’s not so much the details as the composition here, I love the simple framing and soft light.
Toby’s Honorable Mentions:

A macro of your own EYE!!?!?

At first I though this was a drill bit – great tight shot!

Roy’s Winner:

Going super macro with the Sigma 105 lets you really get into another world. Getting this water droplet is a nice detail that lets you see more with the view of the park.  

Roy’s Honorable Mentions:

It’s great when you can get a detail that shares a story like this one. Not only is it a great detail in the cabin and a nice shot, but also a fond memory.

Actually part of what made me think of detail shots was people, why the challenge for 10/7 is faceless. This is a great photo that works well with your lighting, focuses on the details of the eyes, and makes them pop!

 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
