  • Chris Waugh,

    I wasn't sure I wanted to post this, but I could use the distraction, so what the hell... I couldn't tell if the magpie didn't want to be photographed sitting on the fence, or if it decided its perch was too cold and windswept.

    still not working, Chris.
    can you make the file smaller or something?

  • Chris Waugh, in reply to Sacha,

    No, I very much doubt it's the file size, as I've posted bigger. It looks more it's my connection going dodgy again, which happens often.

  • JacksonP,

    Good morning all.

    Righto, after much deliberation, over the length of a coffee this morning, here are my top ten.

    Kebabette – windblown
    Lara – upside down Sam.
    Gareth – Takeaway lunch.
    Nora- Gulls.
    Lilth – amazing waves.
    David Hood – shooting through the sprinkler.
    Bruce Buckman – Gannet at Muriwai.
    Shaun Scott – A merry go around?
    Ross McA – Fire Away.
    Reg Feuz – Late night Courtenay Place. (With a number of creditable late entries – nice work Reg).


    Then I put the list in this randomiser thingy, and the winner is…

    Shaun Scott from Dunedin!

    Shaun, could you hit reply in the post and send me your delivery details. Cheers.

    Thanks everyone for your entries, and wishing you all a wonderful, and cake-filled, Christmas.

    Capture away.

    Hi Jackson- have just emailed you with my details.

    Thanks heaps (and thank you randomiser!)- I really enjoyed looking at all the
    photos and getting ideas for summer fun . . .

    My favourite out of the ten you selected was this one (another Dunedinite- but I swear parochialism has nothing to do with it!)- in the small photo it looks almost like a sunlit swarm of something . . . clicking to see the bigger image it is amazing.

    That is very cool, Ross. Can you share your secret?

    I would if I had one! Pointed at the fire and spun during exposure, which was about a second. Got lucky with the sparks some how...

    One of those accidental ones (a.k.a. check the settings before you take the photo), but I like it anyway. Dancing with Mickey Mouse.

    Here is one from today. Inside Notre Dame with a 2 second exposure, so the moving crowds are just blurred ghosts against the architecture. not bad for improvising with no tripod and a broken primary arm.

    very effective- looks cool.

    I took this one some years back- just looking down onto a flickering candle- I think the circles are light reflections from the melted wax. (can't quite find the file, so hopefully linking out is not breaching etiquette here? Happy for it not to be posted if so)

    Impressive shot David- all the more so with your currently compromised physical capabilities! A very steady hand nonetheless.
    The ghostlike figures are very evocative in that setting.

    I have thought deeply about how to actually take pictures with my current limitations, and realised that the foldout and around LCD screen on my trusty old Canon S3 IS can be folded out in all kinds of directions that can act as a impromtue camera stand if there is any kind of ledge or clear bit of floor. I stacked that idea with having a two second delay on shutter to give me time to restablise the camera with the one hand from after the motion of pressing the shutter. So I got a bunch of good pictures.

    From the sacred to the profane: an image of Lisbon from yesterday. The eye is kind of drawn to the object in the centre of the frame.

    Merry Christmas everyone.

    These birds were in a hurry. Possible I have posted before, but more relevant here. :-)
