    That’s an amazing structure, Bob, and a tricky place to photograph, I bet!

    Love, Love, LOVE your Time traveling tourists Bob!  Very surreal.

    Darren entered a shot in a mono comp a little while back of a fork a la Kertesz. Where is he?

    John >>> Darren isn’t on the Forum.

    Here’s the original Kertész photo: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Kertesz_The_Fork.jpg

    Thankfully now we are getting more entries and varied ones at that. Love the Dovcote. Like you’re very foreshortened fork Ian.

    Like your thoughts on this Ralph, but may have gone for a slightly tighter crop on it. I.E making it a letter box image.

    I like Ralph’s shot of the lion in the wood. It was well spotted and shows the texture in the wood.
    I too enjoy photographing back lit leaves. Ian’s warm photograph shows all the autumn glory with the back lit leaves against a carpet of autumn leaves.
    The great thing about autumn colours is that we’re all surrounded by them and don’t have to walk far to find some. This shot reminded me that I visited Keele University a couple of weeks ago and took some similar photographs. I’m not sure if they qualify for being ordinary, but I certainly find them interesting.






    As you probably know if you’re shooting into the sun like this never look directly at it as it can damage your eyes.

    Spitfire Prelude:

    An ordinary chap doing an ordinary (once!) job – of interest to anyone of a certain age, maybe.

    Pete >>> Very nice ‘contra jour’ shots – always dramatic and contrasty; I particularly like the last one, with the rim light round the person walking across the frame.

    Ralph >>> Fine shot of a great aeroplane. Interesting colour palette / tonality – did you apply a filter effect of some sort?

    Love the plane Ralph … but personally I would back off the effect on your sky on this one as it is looking a little too worked.  Leave everything else as you have it.  A great one for the competitions. Well caught!

    Some lovely Autumn shots there Ian.  I particularly like Gold! 🙂

    I  promise I will get round to entering stuff soon.  If it didn’t have to be taken this month I could drown you in photo’s 😉
