I was lacking willpower and creativity for the last few days. I think I got a brain overload and my brain needed a few days to recover. But finally I managed to pull myself back together again and today I took this shot for the Digital Photography School weekly assignment.

This week's subject was "Repetition" and I had a hard time finding something repetitive that I liked. In the end I looked through the window in dispare and saw these molehills on my neighbours meadow. So I quickly grabbed my camera and went outside to take the picture.

About the shot:

- Camera: Canon EOS 400D
- Exposure: 0.002 sec (1/640)
- Aperture: f/2.8
- Focal length: 50mm
- ISO: 100
- Flash: Not Fired
- Post-processing software: Adobe Photoshop CS2
- Date taken: 04.12.2007

It was a cloudy day so I was working with a beautiful naturaly diffused light. I imagined my shot being black&white even before I took it. So I made sure that the sun was infront of me and got some nice shadows. Then I composed my shot and took a few pictures. Came back home, put the pictures from my camera on my computer and chose the one I liked the most. Then I post-processed it in Photoshop as usually. I boosted the contrast (more than I usually do) and sharpness, cropped it, made a strong vignette and turned it to black&white.
