Wow! Great start! I particularly like your first one, Winter. And tubbs, this is my favorite photo of yours I've seen yet.

This is a photo I took while camping at a wolf sanctuary in the mountains in Colorado, in black and white:

Wow those are some exceptional photos Shady, especially that viaduct one, very eerie.

Tubbs already knows I like the garage shot ;-) and that's also a really satisfying professional looking pic shadow.

Not sure I have anything for this round, but I hope hydroazuanacaine posts something as she's done some excellent work before on this theme iirc :)

Zopiclone Bandit, if I recall, has a lot of great stuff he used to post in the photography thread that would really fit the bill, too.

Can you believe that shot is just using my iPhone 5? Those things can really take some great pictures.

There are already some excellent entries. But I've just realised that having suggested this theme, I've got absolutely fuck all to submit...

Hmm, I'll work on varying the theme
Sun, clouds and sea takes a lot of beating imo mate.

But have you noticed how straight those horizons are? Definite proof that the Earth is flat... ;)

I'm sorry this is very similar to my entry in the last compo, but it's the best I've got at the moment...

She's called Myla and is nearly a year old.

Now I know how the breed got that name, as she's a right pugnacious little shit - but cute with it :)
