    This month’s theme is about one of our greatest and most enduring fascinations: us! People have been one of photography’s main subjects since the very beginning; and people continue to provide endless opportunities for observation, wit and creativity. And they are, of course, all around us – so there’s no shortage of subjects this month!

    Well spotted and framed Ken. It’s a shame we don’t have sound effects. I wish my garden looked that well. You must be very proud.

    Must say I love the horizontal shot best. Like the mono of the walk in the park. The colour is so relaxed and makes me want to sit out in the sun.

    I expected to be able to contribute by now but no new people pix I’m afraid!

    Must say I like the one of Ken’s, spontaneous and with a sense of place and it communicates at a stroke what it has to say.

    Must say Dee I love the first one best. The seconds as good, both are so British Humour (don’t think you intended that) I keep expecting a horse to sneak in and jump over the judge. You’ll have to remind me what you use now to upload as image shack are now charging for uploading images via their site. As I would like to put some on myself.

    The comic element of the image was the first thing that struck me Meg.  He was so intent on his task.

    I am using http://imgur.com/

    Create an account and make sure you select the option on the rhs to auto resize to message board size before uploading an image and every time you log in. Double click on the image once loaded and the links (you want Direct) are on the rhs.  I will show you when I see you next.

    These are nice and really capture  the moment.  But as I said re the horses–had the iris been fairly wide open f4   f5.6 max–focus manually on the guy–and all the  background would be blurred OOF.

    MEG. Would suggest you ask Ian the procedure to down load from the gallery–with a lot of patience he explained to me  and its great–big pics. Must be easy–I can do it.

    Ken … I am just amazed / relieved that my camera survived the drowning. This was taken at f7.1 by the way.

    The Brisitish seaside humour fits what is a serious subject matter. Works well in this case Dee.

    Ken thanks for that.

    The link to Ian’s PDF on loading images is:

    http://www.crewephotosoc.com/download/resources%282%29/resources-misc/How%20to%20embed%20an%20image%20in%20a%20forum%20post%20Ver%205-0.pdf

    My preferered method is to load them into the gallery, then open one, right click and select save image location. Them paste the location into the thread.

    Great humour in those shots Miss D. You have a good eye for humour. Would a title on the lines of ‘The final selfy’ give you some ideas?

    Yes, I like the first one, too – its visually clearer and therefore more striking.

    (Title? How about “Photo Finish”?)
