Teaspoon under a street cafe's umbrella. I was mesmerized by the way the handle transformed the umbrella's spokes. I only had my phone's camera handy. Fortunately when the subject presents itself that can be all it takes.

It's a Thomisidae, sometimes called "crab spider". Usually lives on a flower, waiting for insects to come. It can even change color and become yellow to hide better on yellow flowers.

Ironically, taken the day after I got my new camera... but didn't have it with me,
so this was shot on an iPhone.

Hard crop on the left to remove some very ugly buildings & emphasise the lighting. The additional lighting through & underneath the car, & also the highlighting on the front grille were actually coincidental & fortuitous.
I was on location for a movie, on the tarmac at a small airport. The set is behind me; the car wasn't in the scene so was parked off to one side. The lighting was therefore 'just there'.

It's had some cleanup in Photoshop [& the irritating distraction of another hopeful photographer 100yds away, right in the middle of the shot removed] but far less added colour-punch than you would think - it really did look very much like that on the day. It doesn't hurt at all the the car is actually dark purple anyway.

Edit: I just realised - for anyone thinking the wet tarmac matches neither the sky nor the dry car - it's because the set had been wet down for the scene... again totally fortuitous.

I really liked the colors of this construction site, with the orange safety fence and the cyan/blue-green insulation. But, I couldn't find an angle which really made it interesting, until I found this mirror at a nearby intersection. (Click for larger version.)

I really liked the way the morning light filtered thru the aspens on this hike up Escudilla in eastern Arizona on 14 August 2013. The lower part of the trail from the road at Terry Flat predominantly passes thru this aspen forest.

Shanghai Tower - looking down - russell-mcmahon

Larger slightly wider version [here][8].

Taken from the (non)-viewing gallery at the upper level in the Shanghai tower. A rail + cables barrier fence and here is provided 2+ metres back from the glassless sloping viewing "window" which itself has anti-suicide cables strung across it. No downwards view. You have to climb up (not over) the 'fence,' lean out over it, support your feet somewhere to balance, hold the camera at arm's length pointing down (well secured by strap) and hope you've got it right.

Dreams of the Sea - riot

Although initially this may seem a casual snapshot, in fact it's been an exercise in extreme control - not a single pixel has been left to chance here. An assistant threw gravel at the subject until the ripples on the water and reflections came out exactly how i wanted them - just enough texture to stand out, while maintaining the silent silky feel of the seawater. Part of a series of photographs shot for a close friend, images of aquatic dissolution, peace in drowning and strength in human creations left to decay by water are intended here. No crop, cloning of sensor dust and a few distracting specks of dirt on the water, contrast curve adjustment, desaturation with partial blue filter simulated via channel mixer, duotone conversion with a custom sepia curve (using Pantone Warm Grey 7CV), mild dodging and burning, small increase in vibrance, resize, sharpen.
