There is no theme this week

Submissions may be added any day of the week until voting closes. The winning image (with the highest votes) as of the close of voting will be exhibited on the main site.

General Tips:

We encourage you to include a link to a larger version of your image. You may host your work on sites such as Flickr, 1x.com, 500px.com, RedBubble.com, etc. to showcase larger versions.

Feel free to include a concise description that explains the image, the emotion behind them, etc. and perhaps some explanation of gear and exposure settings, etc.

  • Because of the delay from last week, this one will run the few days left for this week and next week. I"m in the middle of a cross country move on a short timeframe - so I'll not be around much for the next couple of weeks.

  • You'll probably spot this, but there's a mistake in the HTML on the link to the picture on the front page.

    the image height should be 210px exactly. Your image is 720px. Re-size it so that it can be accepted.

  • All the details are not needed. Some basic details are nice though. Camera, lens, aperture, shutter, ISO, focal length. All the other details just make the post longer. Sep 5, 2012 at 9:26
