Depth of Field Tips for Flower Photography
Animals, Plants, & Nature Week Poppies in the Blue Daily Deviation 7/8/2015 Hello! My name is Ruth, though I am commonly known as kayaksailor (https://www.deviantart.com/kayaksailor) on DeviantArt. I have been a photographer for most of my life, adding up to more than a half century of taking photos!  I made the official switch from film to digital in May 2007 (about the same time as I joined DA) after getting my first dSLR, a Nikon D100, at a yard sale.

The Neglected Importance of the Online Community
What is the Worldwide Online Community? The Worldwide Online Community is simply a group of people from a wide variety of countries and continents who come together to share their skills, experience, and/or love for a subject. Online communities are a fairly new faction and are not fully understood, their importance is neglected and may not reach their full potential until the next generation incorporates them more and more. It wasn't until the '90s that the Internet or World Wide Web really became a part of the culture, but in less then 20 years its impact has changed society from top to bottom.

wow! that was actually a really challenging challenge :o it's amazing that so many amazing artists shared their ideas :la:
congratulation to the winners! :clap: :cake: that's really a perfect control of this difficult medium :woohoo:

thank you so much LualaDy for choosing my artwork! :glomp: that's really such a huge surprise :faint:
it's really an honour to be included among so talented people :huggle:  thank you :aww:

and because I've been caught red-handed on not reading the journals thoroughly... whoops! ^^; I maybe have some idea for a theme :)
what would you say for "far away" - like maybe a place far away? maybe a memory nearly forgotten? maybe towards someone you miss? or maybe a nightmare taking you where you should never be? :confused:

When I read "far away" I was instantly thinking of you "famous" galaxies XD...but no...the theme is more complex.

Thank you for the suggestion, though I'm a little bit lost...but it's a great starter :happybounce: It at least isn't a boring title ^^

Well! I can't say I wasn't thinking about them in the meantime :XD: though they are no near being famous ;)
maybe I should describe the subject as "unreachable" :o does it sound better? :confused:
