Assembly

OK OK last plastic chair shot...promise  ;)

Right, now as the suggestion was received so well here's your first challenge.

For Mal: Topic is 'First', I appreciate you like it short and sweet.

For everyone else please read on.

Brief: 
Image has to be related to the word 'First', seems apt for the first one.  So, it can be your interpretation but it needs to be related and I will reward inventiveness and imagination over obvious.  Examples are first in a queue, first over the line, losing your first teeth etc use your imagination but make sure it's not too obtuse or vague.

I'm not keen on photochopping so I don't want heavily processed shots this time, let's stick to the photography.  Of course a little tidying is always useful but primarily it needs to look like a photo.  If you don't know what I mean then look at my archive, most are processed but in most cases you wouldn't know.  Think about composition, think about presentation especially distractions and intrusions that may reduce the impact...but most of all think of it as a bit of fun...please  :)

It's open now till the end of the month so any submission I receive on my blog pages dated March will be included.  Not wanting to be hard line but I need to stop it somewhere.

If you choose to accept this mission...good luck.  Now, please be seated...as you can see there's plenty to choose from.

I'm sorry, Simon. I am not able to translate with sense your words and I cannot find out that you mean.!
BeakerSt: Hi Jose-Angle, sorry it's not clear. If you want to take part then you need to find a shot that is related to the word 'First' or 'primero'.

My only concern is that the idea is that you will get critique on the shot and if I can't explain clearly to you what I am thinking then it may become frustrating?? We can try if you want.

Hi Simon - I have liked this series of chair shots outside St. Peter's, really good work to capture such very different images from the same subject!!
BeakerSt: They're better than the one's I took of the Basilica!

Love this chairs series, Simon. Great work - great spotting and composition, matey.
As an aside we stopped off at the Millennium centre in Cardiff last weekend and thought you'd be in your element there with all the architecture and things to shoot wink
BeakerSt: Maybe I need to take a trip but I'll wait till I change from petrol to diesel!!
I like this shot, nice one, nice series !
BeakerSt: Thanks Fred smile

When it comes to images like these (and others lol) you are smoking, I love all 3 shots, all similar but yet sooooo different. Very IMPRESSED.

Suby
BeakerSt: Very kind of you to say Suby, thanks
I was thinking, this image reminds me something but what ? I know now ! A military event. Impressive.
BeakerSt: That was exactly my thinking and I'd originally commented on it then I removed it as it was getting lengthy...Mal can't read too much in one go.

Reminds me of a Russian military procession.

i think I liked the first of your plastic chair series best but they are all good.

now I'm off to look for 'first' pictures
BeakerSt: I agree, was nervous posting 2 and 3!

I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

The spindly legs look almost like an army of invading insects!

Hmm, 'First' eh? ... Off to have a think.

Why is it that whenever we are out together I can never find anywhere to sit down? Best of luck with you first challenge. Have fun. By the way, I like the pic x
Hey Dude. I enjoyed this mini-series on chaiiirrsszzZZZzz, hehe. This last one is too austere though, very Orwellian (were you going for that?).
The second one was right on the money for me.
I'd like to take you up on your little challenge, if I may. Ill be sending a piccy as soon as I've stolen one off the other blog sites...lol...shouldn't joke about things like that really...you'll begin to question my honour.
How do we do it again...? Post on our own blogs in march with a tag saying First?
BeakerSt: Hi there drewbie, no tags required. You post you shot between now and the end of the month then simply come here and leave a comment telling me which picture you want considering. It's easy for me then to reply to that comment with the score and it's all kept here so others can judge for themselves. Does that make sense??
Love your chairs. Being fairly new I missed them but someone commenting on my current series on chairs suggested I look at yours. Very impressive.
BeakerSt: Cheers Chad, I had a few more to play with by the looks of it!! Thanks for taking the time to venture this way.
