I prefer the poetry of #2 instead, but the other shots are very nice too.

Chris, I like No.1 and 2 but No. 3 just blows me away! What a great shot!

I don't know if these are my best but I like them. We'll just say they are some of my better ones. For now!!

The sun looked surreal and seemed a large beachball suspended over the old pilings. The shrimp boat in the background just made it a very good photo to remind me of why I like Topsail Island North Carolina so much.



This one of my Granddaughter was taken with my K10D and the 18-55 Kit lens late in the afternoon. It was so underexposed I nearly threw it away but being her photo I decided to try to see if I could make it work. It worked so well it has won 2 photo contests and I use it here as my Avatar.



This is a photo of the twin of the other granddaughter. The first one is Regan and this one is Rachel. This photo to me shows her innocence and anxiety. Her and her sister are the only girls on their basketball team and here she has just been told to go in for one of the boys. Shot with my K10D Pentax camera and a Sigma 50-500mm APO DG EX f/4-6.3 lens.

If these are too big just delete them. I don't have smaller ones except for thumbnails. I just remembered this forum likes 900 pixels and all the other ones I post on like 1024 pixels.

This is the L1 and Konica 50mm/1.7 taken through a glass door. I like how the cat is almost a shadow, plus the strong shadow and the textures on the concrete floor.



Same camera and lens as above, different cat. I like this one because it captures a pose that all cat lovers will recognize, the cat looking longingly at the outside world from all the comfort of indoors.



This is with the L1 and Olympus 25mm Pancake (not sure if non-MF lenses are allowed). This one I like for the light and also the special personal meaning it has for me.

Hi Biggy!
I'm happy to hear the story of your Avatar pic (Regan).
It is far and away the best captured child moments I have seen.
Congrats on a lifetime capture!

Thank you for that. I'm truly flattered. She came up to me and looking up said "Papa, See my monster eyes!" As much as I've looked I can see no monster in her eyes.

Here go my modest entries:

This was taken at sunset on a hill overlooking Edinburgh, its oversaturated in PP but I really like the outcome


This was taken on a cold morning for a contest in the photo society of the Uni, people liked it and so do I


This was the most fun I ever had shooting, it was taken on a trip to the northern coast of Scotland


Criticism is welcomed Wink

Hard to choose just 3 from a huge collection that I've made just in 2 yerars but I decided to narrow it down to concerts and here are 3 shots that I've choosen:

I like his one because it looks like a deep glimpse of a soul - Helios 50 mm 1.8


I love this one because because of all the personalities in it - taken with a Pentacon 300 mm


This one it is like looking through a window in another world.

Nice images! Welcome to aboard!

As it's the New Year I'll offer three of my best from last year - sticking strictly to images shot on film.

The first one is from my first outing with a Pentacon Six in almost 30 years. There were some boys messing about jumping with rollerblades, so I prefocused on the place they jumped from, set the shutter speed up to 1000 and the aperture down somewhere around 5.6 and waited. The shot just worked: everyone is looking at the main guy, he is waving victory signs in the air as he leaps and the focus turned out to be bang on.



The second one is maybe a bit odd. Just a picture of a street shoe-shine man, shot on the 6x9 Nettar 516. I like it because these are instantly forgettable people; street labourers that that society doesn't really care about (beyond standardising their kiosks - and, no doubt, charging them rent). But there's a story here, about how this man travelled from Pakistan or Afghanistan to find work in the Middle East, and about the family he left behind and may not see for many years.



Finally, one I posted the other day (shot on the Pentacon Six and cropped), which didn't come out right first time round. Here are the elite at play, the Qataris themselves recreating the life their grandfathers lived. It's quite extraordinary to have a bedouin camp right in the middle of Doha in 2009, so this is historic in two different ways. I cloned out a communications mast to preserve the retro look. A week later, after the National Day parade, all trace of the camp had been swept away:

Hi there! I'm a brand-new member. There are some fantastic images here, shot with lenses that I don't know anything about! Great place to learn.

I shoot mainly Nikkor manual lenses on an FE and a D300. Here are three of my favorite images, taken with a Nikkor 50-300mm f4.5 AIS:

Wow this photo is stunning. The exposure of her eyes is breathtaking. I also enjoy the softness in this photo. Great work!
