That's cool, maybe I will. Do you allow film users to post? I mean should a film user post a processed image or just a vague mental snapshot of what he intended?

I'm having a laugh btw, don't be offended.

Looking forward to some clarification :P

Ok ok, I also have an entry under the title "Book of the Seas".
This is my all-time favourite book about my all-time favourite subject from a photographer that I can only admire: Philip Plisson

Image

I wanted to combine photography and books in a special way when I remembered that this has already been done before: In more professional ways, than I'll ever achieve. So this is my tribute to the greatest photographers in the world and the pictures of places unknown that they bring to us. I'm grateful and humbled...

-----------------
You can see all the technical properties of this photo here. But believe me, they're not important!
The only challenge for me was to reproduce the picture in the book as lifelike as possible (without hiding that it's just a pic from a book)...

Photographer Commentary: I took this photo of this particular book as it was one I read in my childhood, and even though I can't remember the story, the front cover, a bright saturated red with gold embedded text looks from a visual standpoint, very inviting, and even though one should not judge a book by its cover, its cover should be appreciated.

Lens Model Used: Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6
Focal Length Used: 40mm
Aperture Used: F/7.1
Shutter Speed Used: 1/60

Nice work Jay. This is my personal fav. It's got a kind of "old - lost in time" sort of look.

I also really liked Studini's entry!
