Toni, you should self publish...
This series will make a GREAT book.
Hah! Thank you for the kind comment, but I feel I still have a lot to go and I have no idea how it's going to turn out.
However, once I'm done, I'm surely going to make a photo book for myself of this adventure. If I feel I've succeeded. :-)

Day 9 of 365 - Field of view
"Today it hits. The pressure of finding new ideas and subjects in a tight schedule, which I've created myself. Just after I thought it has not been so difficult to find something to photograph each day, I'm suddenly finding my pockets pretty empty. How do I solve this? By posting something different. Still playing with black, but this time I'm rendering it differently."

Thumbs up.
There are people who actually think LENS stabilization is better than sensor shifting!

This one does not do much for me Toni.
There are three eye catchers:

The bright light at the top which takes the eye out of the frame
The bright blond hair but no face
The red top

But there is nothing in these and I do not see a point of interest......john

Thank you for your honest words and wording it out for me, John. :-)

I tried to find your pictures, but I couldn't find any. You have flickr-page or something? Just interested to see, since you seem to have a lot of knowledge, at least more than me. :-)

Day 10 of 365 - Cleaning day
"I don't know where the ideas come from. Do they come into being from ever rampaging chaos, which lies outside of organized human life? Or do they wait us in the platonic 'world of Ideas', where everything is categorized perfectly like in a library or computer file system? Some say they have a manmade origin, which is tied to history of struggle. Wherever they come from, all I know is that I need them to keep going on with my photo blog."

ps. As it is tenth day, I would like to remind that my blog is open for other Sony Alpha users too. If you are interested in submitting your photograph for others, see it here: http://www.yearofthealpha.com/photographer/.

Creative and well executed.  Nothing for me to really pick up on except maybe a cleaning brush  :grin: ....

Thanks John! I used some soya sauce for this picture and afterwards I cleaned everything (twice), but I can't seem to make scent of that sauce go away. hah :D

I have learned to expect your comments and was already waiting them.. :grin: Seriously, I really appreciate that you take your time to comment each picture (but don't take this as obligation).

Day 11 of 365 - Weather report
"Finally the snow is coming down from the sky! In this evening, when it got dark, the snowfall began and this time it looks like it has a potential to become a true winter. Usually by this time of year, in Finland, we have had already at least a couple of good months of winter with everything covered by beautiful white snow. Apparently some flowers are still blossoming in central Finland and some folks have picked mushrooms from the forests. I have never experienced this kind of black winter before. Doesn't sound quite as dramatic as Niagara falls freezing in North America, but I red that the same weather phenomenon explains the mild weather in Scandinavia and the freezing weather in North America."

Day 10... VERY creative. Bet it was MORE fun setting up that shot then cleaning up afterwards. ;)

Day 11... well; I'm not so sure if that one represents EXACTLY what you were going for. It is not as eye catching or engaging as the rest of the collection.

No issues from me with this last one.  I like the concept with the negative space and you have managed it well....john

Hah, I've had to clean it now three times (last time couple of hours ago), because of scent of soya sauce. But I think it's getting better now. Thank you for your kind words.

Day 11... well; I'm not so sure if that one represents EXACTLY what you were going for. It is not as eye catching or engaging as the rest of the collection.
Well different day, different pictures. Though, I had hoped for bigger snowflakes. But I wanted to publish it anyway, because it was actual..

Day 12 of 365 - The interrogation room
"Found this front door of apartment building when I was hiking around the neighborhood couple of days ago. What is this place, I immediately thought, when I noticed security camera above the door. Notice that there is also a platform for pin codes and a pretty solid looking door. For some odd reason window on a top conjures up, in my mind, an image of a interrogation room. It's a gray and dreary room with one light hanging from the ceiling. Underneath the light there is a simple table and three chairs – one for me and two for my interrogators."
