Well, I have been ALL OVER town and could not find anything worth showing. I did however find this guy just standing there.
I was going to get a overhead view of downtown but the hotel (the tallest building here at 17 floors) said that "unless you work for OUR photography staff we cannot let you take ANY photos on or from the property" then they escorted me back to my truck just to make sure I was leaving. :evil: :evil: It's not the best but it will do.

Hello everyone!

This is my first entry and i have to say i had to work on this one! Its a very interesting theme though

Since I live in a big city I decided to focus on details rather than the integrity of the place, so i came up with this. These bikes (called Velo'v here) are accesible to anyone in Lyon. You can rent them for the hour or longer depending on your need, and i use them often to get from a to b. You can find them all over Lyon so i see this pic as a good representation of my city.


Since i'm still waiting on my D80 I took this picture with my good ol' Coolpix.
Camera Model: Nikon Coolpix L1
Focal length: 6.3mm
Aperture/ Shutter Speed/ Sensitivity {I was in "night" mode with a tripod)
Post processing: slight sharpening

The water, the mountains, industry and residential areas, all bundled up epitomizes Vancouver for me. This shot is from Crescent Beach on a typical overcast day.

As sweden pretty much is totally colorless in februari i have choosen to publish a b/w picture.

It give the picture a little harsh look, and i also let the sun just peek over to left roof.

This is my home city of Cape Town, South Africa. I wanted to capture the last light of a long still summer day, as the city lights started glowing. I was fortunate to be able to include the full moon in this long exposure shot. Table Mountain (my avatar pic) is behind me.

Yesterday, the weather here in Holland got better, so I was able to go out and take some photos. I chose this one, because I like the warm colours and the light of the afternoon sun.


This photo shows one of the churches in my living place, Ridderkerk. I wanted to find out how the church would look at 16mm, and I'm quite happy about the result. I wish I could have stepped back a little further, but because there are houses around the church, that wasn't possible.

Aperture: f5.6
Shutter Speed: 1/125 sec.

Hi all,
Bit late with my effort, but decided to take my time to really try to look at my town as seen by non locals.I found nothing :D
One morning whilst driving in the road in heavy fog, these goliaths just rose out of the mist. It was a stunning sight and defiinatly more beautiful than my photohgraphy skills can display unfortunatly.

The photo is a new suspension bridge that is currently being constructed in city where I live on another glorious sun filled day here in Ireland


Taken with Eos 400d No Tripod unfortunatly

On my quest to find something that was CLW (camera labs worthy) for this month...under pressure time running out. Drove to the beach today, and was rewarded with this...added a little contrast, but the colors were pretty much as they appear..I sharpend it a trying to do what
Big Pix says..


thats the best I got for this month, and it was like pullin teeth..
Good one, Drazen..this is the coast, by Ventura Calif...not far from
where I live. The mist was coming up off of the water, and the light was so pretty, I know it was a gift...

luis, will you critique all of these, like you did last months? I loved that..
looked forwards to it this time around...

I hope this is not too late!
I took this last week, while most of my area seemed to be iced over. This was my first venture out to take pictures, so please don't flame me!

I took this picture because I liked the contrast between the colourful spring shrubbery and the grey overcast sky mixed with the bland, boring houses visible in the background.

I hope there's room for the newcomer :)

Sariyer... Once a small fishing town located on the northwestern tip of the Bosphorus, now completely engulfed by the amoebic growth of the 'mega-village' that is called Istanbul. However, neither the fish nor fishing has completely disappeared, and here's a shot of the small seafood restaurants and boats tied along the fishermen's quay, a bit north of the chaotic main alley.

There's more to Sariyer than just these, and I've posted the rest on my Flickr page. Come and see, if you like :)


EDIT: Little Flickr issue led to the unintended deletion of the original shot, so I've updated the link after re-uploading. No changes to the original photo, whatsoever. Honest. Apologies...
