APRIL 4TH - The poll is up, time to vote!
Sorry for putting the poll up late, I have had a crazy week.



Hi folks, and welcome to March's assignment. Last month's assignment drew 11 entries, let's try keeping the upward trend going.

I'll start the ball rolling with one I took yesterday afternoon. It was taken from Wordsworth point on Ullswater where I had just arrived to check out the daffodils (not far out of the ground and only a few beginning to bud). I saw a glint in the air down the lake and it was this RAF trainer flying up the valley. I had to change settings pretty quickly but got half a dozen shots, of which this was the first and the one I liked best. The aircraft was against the hillside to the left for the rest. The misty edge to the slope coming down from the right is as photographed.

Hello, this is officially my first post on the forum. It's an upclose portrait of a squirrel, I thought it would be appropriate as the prize of the contest is a wildlife ebook. Enjoy!

Unusual for me to get up at 1/4 to 5 but I wanted to capture surfers on a 3m surf and I came across 20 + phototogs shooting the sunrise. Taken 15/3.

Image

Camera Model: Nikon D7000
Lens and focal length: Nikon 18-200mm VR II @ 90mm
Aperture: f5.3
Shutter Speed: 1/800
Sensitivity: ISO 200 & -0.7EV
Post processing: Elements 11, Straighten, resize

Although a jpeg, I adjusted it in camera raw and decided to leave it as shot with natural sunrise colours and shadows.


Cheers

Toying with a thick catalogue of tools and equipment I feathered the colour-coded pages and was rather pleased by the effect.

Taken with my Lumix GX1 and Lumix 12-35mm lens:
12mm, f11, 1/25, ISO 200
The exposure in the top half of the frame has been enhanced for a heavenly appeal.

Regards,

This stack of clay items in a roadside shop in Sri Lanka are actually pot bases with a space beneath for lighting a fire. The village people use them in preference to expensive bottled gas or kerosene stoves. The potter just happens to have stacked them in a way that makes these smiley faces .... despite being imprisoned!

My son opened the car door the second we stopped and raced off into the surf. Tried to capture the moment.
