    Monthly Photography Theme - August 2015 - WATER

    This is probably a bit of a cheek being such a noob here, but what a fantastic thread. Sorry to drag it up if everyone is fed up of it.

    As August is International Water Quality Awareness month, may I suggest that the butt end of July, and August 2015 theme is 'WATER' ?


    1.This is not a competition, it's purely for fun
    2.All photos should be your own and be taken within the month of the chosen theme (25/07/15-31/08/15).
    3.You can post as many photos as you wish
    4.Comments on submitted photos are welcome
    5.Please include the exif details (these may be helpful to other members)
    6.Please use a Canon camera for your shots

    Butch, not a cheek at all, just needed someone to trigger it off, so thanks for doing so. A well chosen theme, should be lots of takers. Let's get going with one of mine from the weekend:

      Great theme Butch!

      I like the colours and composition very much Alex.

      Here is one of soapy water:

              Have been out of circulation for a few weeks now so am catching up on what has been going on.

                Richard, Bo, thanks for the various comments. I sometimes worry that I follow the rule of thirds rather too slavishly!
                On that topic, though, Butch if you'll forgive me can I suggest an improvement to yours might be to take the main point of interest away from the centre by shaving some off the right hand side (so that the text faces inwards) and bottom (leave the strongest reflected red, but you don't need it all).
                Richard, David, lovely as always, and welcome back David.

                        Don't worry too much about Photoshop to start with. Start with Lightroom - whether the standalone version or Creative Cloud (in which case you will get PS) but LR does most of what most of us need!!!

                        But Alex, you know if you diverge from the rule of thirds on the forum you will get into trouble! Just as you decide for a good creative reason to divert from it, someone will always pull you back on to the straight and narrow!!!

                        Lovely captures David and Taffy!

                          Virginia Water. Probably the most photographed cascade in the UK but this was my first time there. 30s exposures.

                            Beautiful day today - I was out early to see if the balloons would come over this way from the Bristol Fiesta (no such luck) and while I was out I saw this - a small bit of water.

                              OK. This was taken by my wife with her Canon PowerShot but I thought it looked nice...
