Monochrome Madness 204

It has been an interesting week so far. Finally some things have gone well around here. Monochrome Madness 204 is another great week of images and seems to be slowly growing again. Maybe it is my imagination.

The next theme has been given to us by Required Reading and is Relaxation. Could be interesting. Get your entries in before the first Wednesday in May.

My Image

Hello Welcome to the official beginning of the Fine Art Way. I am going to be sending you emails each week with link to the videos and information on what you can expect. They need to be sent a little better than this, so after this week I will be using MailChimp. If you have an issue with this please let me know. The videos aren't great quality, they looked great on my computer, but they didn't upload with the same quality. I will continue trying to work out what the problem is. Here are the links to the two videos for this week. Video 1 - introduction to what you can expect to learn here. https://www.facebook.com/thephotographersmentor/videos/354537751733591/?permPage=1 Video 2 - What is Fine Art Photography https://www.facebook.com/thephotographersmentor/videos/354541701733196/?permPage=1 On Thursday there will be a Live session and you will be able to ask questions, or you can send me questions so I can address. Leanne

I must be into piers right now. I’ve been experimenting so much with time-lapses this week and this is from one of the thousands of images I’ve taken. It is from Princes Pier just as the sun was coming up. I did use a 3 stop soft grad filter, but that’s it.  The water came out in a really strange way, but I love it.


Monochrome Madness 204

Being part of MM

Monochrome Madness each week and if you wish to participate and submit an image here is how you do it:-

  • You must email me the image you want to include and if you have a blog or website, or somewhere else, please include the link. My email address is leanne@leannecole.com.au
  • The image size should be low res, so the largest side should be 1000 pixels or less.
  • Please insert either your name or your blogs name in the file name.
  • Remember I am on Australian time, so with GMT I am +11 hours at the moment, I publish my post on Wednesday morning.
  • Remember to include a link to your blog or website.
  • Please resize your images, it is fairly simply, you just need to go into any editing software and usually under Image you will find, resize, scale, or image size, something like that and you can resize your image there. Change the dimensions to pixels and make the longest side 1000 pixels or smaller, hit return, and for most types of software that should change the other side automatically as well. Just remember to save it with a different name so you know it is the smaller version.  If you have any problems, please contact me, I don’t mind helping out.
  • Please note you don’t have to be a WordPress blogger to be in this challenge, you can have a link to a Facebook page, a Flickr page, anywhere really, or no link.  We just want to encourage people to do monochrome images, just for the madness of it. Just to let you know also, that as soon as the challenge is published, all emails and images you have sent me are deleted from my computer.

  1. A fabulous collection Leanne .. thanks so much to all those clever people

  2. Thank you for the time-lapse. Looked like an army about to land. 🙂

  3. That first photo reminded me of my Italian grandmother and her sisters. Such a lovely memory. I always look forward to your MMI, Leanne. Always something different and beautiful.

  4. Absolutely love it. Great work.
    (There is a similar place in NY, on the west side, not as extended though)
    Thank you for sharing.

    • I’ve been to that place in New York, it has the city at the other end, which is fantastic, we just have nothing. You’re welcome.

    • True. There is the entire Manhattan. Not sure that you have “nothing”. I would have to go and see… 🙂
      (30 hours of flight. OMG)

    • There is something at the other end, but it is so far away you can’t really see it, unfortunately. Yeah, come on over and take a look, or take a look at this time-lapse that I did there earlier this week.

  5. I like the musical instrument a lot but your pier is the best.
