Ok folks, after posting a pic that was never meant to be posted here in the first place I reckoned that I had better post an entry for this month.

I found this shot on a beach one morning in Ireland, in a tiny little cove and it amazed me as to how it could have ended up there. I can only imagine that some very colourful language was uttered by the boat owner or the fisherman that discoverd this "anchor" attached to his rope

I think with this in mind I will call this picture Unspoken.

Taken with Canon eos 400d
Standard lense
Tv Value- 1/40
Av Value- 5.0
ISO - 100
Sharpened with Adobe Elements

Hi folks,

Here's the ultimate in green transport, in a brownish sort of way...

      Boots
    Image

    Camera Model: Canon EOS 40D
    Lens: EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM
    Focal Length: 17 mm
    Aperture: f/6.4
    Shutter Speed: 1/640 second
    Sensitivity: 800
    Filter: Circular polariser
    Post processing: Canon's DPP software lens corrections and converted to 16-bit TIFF.
    Then into Photoshop and some noise reduction, sharpening, minor levels tweaks
    and a 5% boost to the blues, yellows and greens to add a little punch.
    IMHO the image didn't need cropping so just a small white border
    was added and the image was resized.

    Clickable for the 3.8MB version.

I was after a slightly quixotic look so the boots were placed on uneven ground allowing the tilt. Best foot forward together with a short focal length gave the intended distortion. I had been playing with depth of field on some earlier shots and needed to bump the ISO up to 800 at f/22 with the Sun behind the clouds. In the end I got the desired depth of field at f/6.3 and stupidly forgot to lower the ISO, an error which was compounded by the Sun coming out from behind a cloud. I'm glad it did, though, as I prefer the sunny look.

Bob.

Hi all,

Right this was inspired by a photo I took last year and the "trails of light" photos some people have posted. Hope you like... "Going Nowhere Fast"

Image


Camera Model: Canon EOS 400D Digital
Lens and focal length: EF-S 17-85MM IS USM @53mm
Aperture:f 5.6
Shutter Speed: 5 seconds
Sensitivity: ISO 100
Processing: Cropped to make it more square.

Click for the full resolution image... The 500pixel version is euugh!

The original photo I was trying to adapt is here...http://flickr.com/photos/legoyoda/1442101407/in/set-72157600928788907/ But that had some issues like not being taken this month and having the handbrake light on!

Please forgive the blur in picture, as it was taken from a moving car. The truck was also moving. I calulate a closing speed of about 160 miles per hour! I call this photo ironic, as the blade is a component for a renewable energy source (wind), being carried on a vehicle which is consuming a non-renewable energy source(diesel fuel). :wink:

This is a picture of a couple of fishing ships taken in Devon. The quality isn't great though. It's not really very good, but I might as well enter it.

Quote:
The Riverdance is a RORO ferry formerly in service with Seatruck Ferries on the Irish Sea. Riverdance was hit by a wave on the 31 January 2008 which caused her cargo to shift and she was eventually beached at Blackpool, very close to the border with Cleveleys. Attempts to refloat her failed, and she is to be scrapped on site.

Her normal route was Heysham - Warrenpoint. She has a sister ship, the Moondance, which is currently in service with Seatruck. She was a cargo vessel, but she sometimes carried passengers, under UK maritime law she was able to carry up to 12 passengers.

Another 1st time entrant here - I can only get better! And with comments, advice and inspiration from others on this fantastic forum, I hope I will!

50ft to go!


Image

Nikon D60
55-200mm VR lens @ 55mm
F/9 @1/320
ISO 100

The subject of my pic is an RAF VC10 transport/tanker aircraft. I know that its only a glance of her, and that the wingtip, engines and tail are all missing. But I quite like the impression of speed given by blurring, the landing gear and flaps all locked fully down in the moments before touchdown. Hopefully you can almost hear the roar of the mighty Rolls Royce jets that power these 40 year beauties.
