It's feeding time!

There are thousands of starling that roost under this pier in my in-laws' home town. Every evening at the same time (dusk) they fly out en-masse to feed before swooping back down below the pier. The whole process goes on for a little while, roughly to coincide with the light going down. During this time the number of birds in the pack goes up and down, and it's an amazing sight a their peak. Unfortunately, I've only really seen these peaks on days when I didn't have my camera, so for now, this is the best one. Click on my Flickr for a full size version.

i just got a hold of my d60 and here's my first entry guys!
Night Time Green
Image

55mm f5.6 on 18-55mm VR 3.5-5.6 kit lens
shutter speed is at 30 seconds
Manual Exposure Mode
Exposure Comp +4.7EV
Post:Added sig and the borders


this is a standard issue watch in many of the US armed forces' branches.
i got this one as a gift for my older brother and since i got it, i've wanted to take a decent picture that did it justice, my point and shoot could NOT focus on anything when it was dark, but it was a very simple task for the D60.

i had two entries, both were meaningful to me, i chose this one because it's a shot that i've attempted over and over, and last night i finally got it.

thanks for reading!

Hello everyone;

First of all thanks for the great forum and website; this is my first submission this month, here is a photo taken with my newly acquired e510.

Please bear with me as I'm a complete beginner (only got my dslr a week ago!!)

This is part of the clockwork in St Alban's clocktower. No postprocessing; 1/30 at f/4.3, ISO 200.

Cheers,

I've been thinking all month on what I could take a photo of for this topic that would be different. I collect clocks and have about 10 going off every hour (you get use to it and company doesn't come for extended visits, LOL). Here is my submission for the month. I call it "time passing me by".

Here is my take on "Time".
Night time meets Day time

Here's my entry (talk about cutting it fine!).
I really struggled this month as my original idea just didn't work out and then all my back ups seem to fail too. The picture is of my garden wall which fell over last summer but has just been forgotten.
I give this image the name "Forgotten in time".

Image

Camera Model: Nikon D80
Lens and focal length: Nikkor 18-135mm at 70mm (105mm equivalent)
Aperture: f/5.4
Shutter Speed: 1/50
Sensitivity: 100
Post processing: Black and white with an added green tint.

It was recommended to me that I put this photo here, though I must admit that I feel inadequate doing so. I have no real title for this shot, as I was not really composing it, per se--I just though it looked neat. The organic (participants in time) versus the mechanical (the keeper of time) struck me though, which was the reason for the shot. Later, I also noted the contrast of geometry: the lines, crossing beams, and center window, set against the foreground of the individual nature of the human form...maybe what drew me to that frame.

Image

I took this photo with a canon S80, black and white, zoomed out to 28mm, ISO 100, aperture 4.0, and shutter speed 1/200. No post-processing (I do not know how yet!) (I am new to photography, so please forgive me if I misuse the nomenclature.)

Regards,
Blake

I feel ashamed putting this up next to most of these but here we go.

Image

larger image here: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3125/237 ... 0ec5_o.jpg

Canon 40D
28-135mm F3.5-5.6
Shutter: 1/15
Aperture: F5.6
Focal Length: 125.0 mm
ISO: 800

I'm not really proud of it, but it took me a while to do, I though the idea was good. I'm sure you can tell it was done in a mirror. Challenges were getting the 2 objects close and still missing the front (old camera) in the corner of the frame. Forgot to lower ISO, I just pushed some contrast and a few really simple edits.
