Hola

My first post ever. Wanted to capture spring's long shadows but the shot turned out to be good in this assignment too. The photo was taken while I biked, so had to mount the camera on my cycle rack with a gorilla pod - know Gordon Laing loves it too.

Camera Model: Canon Powershot G9 (my first camera and really loves it)
Lens and focal length: Standard G9 lens - maybe 7-44mm - no zooming
Aperture: f/5.6
Shutter Speed: 1/125
Sensitivity: ISO 100
Processing: "I feel lucky"-button in Picasa

Image

That's the one I'll post for the April assignment. A picture explaining the technique behind the capture is posted in "April 2008 Comments and Questions".

My first post in the assignments section. I was not really planning on shooting anything particular for this, but this peculiar boat rider just seemed to fit with the theme well. It has been rainy and dreary for the longest time. Finally, on Friday, the weather went well, so I took a trip out to Steveston harbor (a local tourist attraction). Hope you like it!

This is what we call in the Philippines a "trike" or "trisikad". It's a human powered transportation. It can take you from about a kilometer or 2 for about 2 - 5cents. it can carry from one to four passengers. Just figure out where the other 3 person will fit. hehehe.

My title for this piece is "million dollar ride"

I shot this just today, unfortunately I forgot to adjust the camera date when i changed batteries so i had to adjust it using flickr.

Kodak c857 camera
focal length 20.3mm
ISO 400
Aperture priority 1/500 - f3.6

Ok, I'm really new to this but i'll go ahead and make a submission :lol: This photo was taken last week when i was at the 'Nosey Parker Elephant Trek' in Krabi, Thailand. The elephants there take tourists on rides around the surrounding rubber plantation. It was fun!!

When I think of transportation my mind quickly goes to speed. Being that I'm new to this whole thing having bought my very first DSLR less than a month ago, I've been eager for a chance to try things out.

This past weekend I loaded the family into the car and we set out on a road trip to attend our first NASCAR race (in Dallas, TX). What an experience.

Needless to say being one of nearly 200,000 people in attendance it was tough to get into a good position for taking photos, not to mention being able to capture a car flying by at close to 200 miles per hour. Though I had 2 safety fences between me and the action, I was pleased with the results.

I was shopping with my mom when I came across this hand pulled rickshaw. This used to be a very popular mode of transport over short distance within the city of Kolkata, India. Such type of rickshaws were oprational only in the city of Kolkata and its adjoining areas. Its a reminiscent of the bye gone era of manual labor that has been replaced by highly efficient and powerful mechanical engines. Such rickshaws have stopped plying in the city, but some of them still exist and are a rare breed.

Your reviews and comments on the shot will be highly appriciated.

Just like last month, I've not had the time to go and shoot specifically for the set theme. Of the pickings from April so far, this'll do.

Image

Taken with D200 & 10-20 Sigma @ 20mm
Aperture: f/7.1
Exposure time: 1/180
ISO: 100
Post-processing: Photomatix for HDR.

It began to rain a few minutes later. The location is the Rynek Glowny Grand Square, Krakow. The image of the horse cart and pigeons was taken fortuitously when I stopped to put the rain cover over my kit bag.

Lots of good entries so far, and here’s mine. The essence of transport is movement, so I thought my picture had to include that. After that, there was only one choice given that I live in Japan- the Shinkansen, or bullet train. I'm pleased with this shot- the blurred person in the window on the far left suggests people being transported, rather than just the transport itself.

Image

Camera Model: Nikon D40
Lens and focal length: 18-55, at 18mm
Aperture: f/16
Shutter Speed: 1/50
Sensitivity: ISO200
Post processing: RAW to JPEG conversion, slight cropping, exposure control.

There were three other images I almost submitted- you can see those on my flickr page! And I might post them in the suggestions and comments thread.

For this interesting assignment, the pocket-etymologist came up in me, aided by a year of classes in Latin, many moons ago.

The word "transport" originates - like most English words - from Latin and is derived from:
"trans" which means "across" and
"portare" which means "to carry"

That gave me the direction for this month's submission.

The bridge on this shot is a train-bridge across which the "skytrains" - as they are called here - rush commuters. It's a lovely ride with a great view from inside and interestingly lit at night.

Tried to add compositional texture by including other forms of transportation in the image, hence the boat and, on the left side, the neighboring bridge for car traffic. Waited for a while to get an airplane in the shot as well, but no luck :-)

Image
(Nikon D40, 55-200mm @82mm, ISO400, 1/1sec exposure)

Bit of lens-flare at the closest pillars, which I could've cloned out for this small-sized image, but it didn't look well on the full-sized one, so I left it in there).
