  • Re "Images must be 210 px high and up to 375 px wide; Images must be in landscape orientation": Would it make sense to combine those to "Images must be 210 px high and 210–375 px wide"? – msh210 May 10 '12 at 22:30

Bicycle Against Wall

Bicycle Against Wall

This is a photo of a bicycle standing against a wall that I took with a Canon EOS 500D in Copenhagen, Denmark, on a backpacking Europe trip last year. It turned out nicer than I had thought.

Herd of Shells

Herd of Shells by Vian Esterhuizen

This photo was taken with 49mm of Fotodiox extension tube on a Canon 70-200mm. Each shell is probably around 1-2 cm and it was on a support beam in the ocean. I was standing in waist deep water being knocked around by small waves. The waves, along with the extension tube, made this shot very tough. At points I was just shooting bursts hoping one of the shots would be framed correctly.

Secret: This is actually a portrait picture with the shells on the side of post but I like this a lot better.

The Coffee Pot in the Rain

This shot was a throwaway. When I went to process it I didn't like the rain drop "orbs" in the shot. Fortunately, I didn't delete it and "found" it months later.

Lost Glasses

Took this picture a rainy day. Found some lost glasses on a blue bench, returned them to the police after I was done with them!

Protector!

enter image description here

I personally like this years old photo for the memories.
Unposed spur of the moment.
Unedited - ie background white is original due to overall lighting. The "bat like" cat was defensive and Janet was using it as a friendly shield.

Janet, daughter of friends of mine, & her cat.
Janet wasn't quite sure that she wanted to be friends with me at first.
The cat was very sure it didn't!
It took a while to persuade it otherwise.
