waltonksm for this photo of a young Tern chick stretching its wings

Tern_Chick4.jpg

 

I guess I go against the popular tide of bokeh-ed out blurred backgrounds that accompany the usual birding photos shot with uber-telephotos at uber-wide apertures, but the unexpected vegetation and reflections in this shot really place a bird species that I generally associate with rocky tundra and wind-swept shores in a whole different light.

The pose of the bird is also simply beautiful, and makes the inspiration for many hood ornaments on mid-20thC cars pretty obvious.

armando_m take on a still life scene from San Diego - old downtown

 

I'm a fan of the documentation of areas like this, the lighting as well.

Hey folks, seeing as this is the final POTW, you can nominate any image posted to FZ at any time this year. :) 

 

Let's give it a few more days and see what we can come up with. Once #470 is chosen we will move directly onto Inspired By ___. More on how that will operate soon.

And another one to nominate, Andrew's (gryphon1911) concession stand photo really grabbed my eye:

2015-12-01_09-07-37.jpg

 

Not only does it nail the early winter atmosphere perfectly, the lady serving is so well highlighted by the lighting and gives away perfectly what she thinks of working there in the chill, one mitten on for warmth, one off to handle the money. Her expression is one of pure tedium.  The shot is all about her, everyone else fades into insignificance, with the fairy lights rounding the whole shot off perfectly. :)

afx's series of B&W gig shots here were all expertly photographed, but the one that stands out for me, mainly because of the composition and gesture is this one:

Congrats Aguinaldo on getting the final POTW! It's a fine image! 

 

I'd like to thank every person who has helped out with the Pic Of The Week for 470 weeks of its lifespan. It's been a tremendous ride and we have seen some amazing images from so many talented people from all around the world. The POTW was something I started early in the life of the Nikongear.com forum and it went on for a very long time, 9 years to be exact. 

 

With the recent changes in the community I decided that it would be best to replace the POTW with something different, but similar in nature. The new Inspired By ___ activity will also showcase great pics by the community but will be a lot different to POTW in the way it works. I will kick that off a week from today, so that Aguinaldo's POTW will have enough time to be seen on our front page. I will also make a formal announcement on the change and how it will work very soon. Stay tuned! :)
