I think WordPress came up with an interesting subject this week. In fact so interesting that I think I’ll post a second post for this challenge later – I still have a lot of photos from France that needs post-processing and some of them might be suitable.
Two Subjects. This “theme” is more of a composition challenge.
Here’s my entry for the weekly photo challenge this week:
Make sure to check out Roobo69’s contribution, he has some very nice photos.
- dailypost.wordpress.com – two subjects (dailypost.wordpress.com)

- mikehardisty.wordpress.com – two subjects (mikehardisty.wordpress.com)
- fluffyflurries.wordpress.com – two subjects (fluffyflurries.wordpress.com)
EDIT: After request by Allan at Themofman I’ve added this B/W version:
Nice – I like the composition here. And thanks for the kind words about my entry!
Thanks Robin, I’m glad you like my compostition.

This is a good one! Wonderful DoF … good choice!
btw, your current header here in the blog is beautiful beyond words..
Thanks Reb. I had to look up DoF – I didn’t know about this acronym. So I found this website that explained it to me: http://www.secondpicture.com/tutorials/photography/meaning_of_depth_of_field.html
Thanks for broadening my acronym repertoir 🙂
Thank you for your kind words about my header. The header consist of a photo that I shot at The Western Wall and an ancient drawing of Jerusalem. I used photoshop to combine the two.
Här säger de DoF hela tiden, så hemma skulle jag inte ens veta vad det kallas eftersom jag inte höll på med foto där. När jag var hemma i höstas, höll jag på att säga lens flera gånger om objektiv.

Wow, a scary picture. I first thought the person in the background was a biker…
But anyway, it is so easy to miss those barbed wires! They are very dangerous 😦
Not as dangerous as razor wire 😀
I like the focus on the barb wire. Great job!
Thank you Lonely!
Great composition! I like the juxtaposition of the barbed wire and the hikers passing!
Thank you Teresita. As we were walking along the trail, I knew that the barbed wire would make an excellent photo opportunity.

I like this A LOT, and I’d love to see it in B/W or as a duotone.
Thank you Allan, I’ll see if I can post a duotone and/or B/W version later 🙂
Added a B/W version for you now 🙂

Excellent capture! The clarity is amazing. : )
Thank you for your good feedback.
truly fits the requirement of composition of two subjects!
Thanks Madhu. I also felt that this photo was suitable for this weeks challenge.

Thanks. Best of luck with Abby!
There’s a certain sense of serenity vs. danger in this piece. Like it!
I see what you mean suburbia. The barbed wire kind of creates a feeling that you’re trespassing, or entering some territory that you shouldn’t have.

I really like the composition and hope you win. I know b/w is fashionable but think in this case you loose too much when you loose the colour.
Thanks for commenting 🙂
I also prefer the coloured one. The colours are earthy & subtle, plus there’s not enough contrast between the light & shadows to turn this into a really interesting B/W photo.
You don’t win anything when you participate in WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge, you just get to showcase your photos and interact with your readers & fellow bloggers. So in one sense, we all win – but there’s no grand prize or anything.
This is the second barbed wire shot I’ve seen for this challenge. I’ve always liked barbed wire, not sure why though. Of these two shots, I prefer the color one. To me the person in the background stands out a little more and the colors are so wonderful. Great entry for the challenge this week!
Thanks for a good comment where you explain what you like & why – it’s highly appreciated. This is the second barbed wire shot you see in this photo challenge, but hopefully I posted it first 😀

I’ve been taking lots of pictures of wire fence like this and now you give me more inspiration for such this theme! Thank you! 🙂
Love your picture! 🙂
Thanks Inge, I’m glad to hear that I can be inspirational.
I like the header in your blog with the close-up photo of the wired fence: it’s artistic & the colours are good.
You are very most welcome and thanks to you as well for liking my header. 🙂
I set it sepia color but unfortunately I forgot to decrease its exposure value. A friend of mine said it is to flat. 😀
But I like it though. I have to keep in mind about the exposure value. 😀
We live and we learn, and hopefully we turn into better & wiser human beings in the process.
Absolutely agree! Thanks for the support! 🙂

Personally I loved the color version… I took a similar picture recently…but the background for it was much barren n dry..
Thanks Thoughts. Did you post the picture in your blog? If so: please drop a link.
Love your photos of Agra Fort, it’s a beautiful place. We stopped there on our way to Taj Mahal.
Hi Cardinal, I did publish that picture and thank you for reviving it for me. I wanted to publish it but it completely slipped my mind.. 🙂
here’s the link to the picture i took..
I like the B&W version the best but I think the color version is better because it’s easier to see the people in the back. Either way, I really like the focus on the barbed wire. Very nice composition!
Mine are here:
Thanks Michael. If I could shoot the same photo again, I would have focused even more detailed on the spikes of the barbed wire, but time wasn’t on my side.
Definitely a photo of two great halves. I prefer the colour shot with the person in the background, the b&w without the person, or the tree!
Colour wins 🙂

What a wonderful shot, Cardinal! I admit I prefer the monochrome. There’s a certain charm about black and white…
Glad you like it. B/W can be charming, but personally I don’t think it suits this photo so well.
nice… prefer the B/W version…
Thanks for the feedback Nigel.
