I'll kick this off with one of my favourites I've uploaded.

 

I struck up a conversation with this friendly guy asking for money in front of a supermarket. His nickname is Elvis, he's 27 and from Nigeria.

This was one of my favorite photos from a trip to South Dakota a couple years ago.  We were there just after Labor Day and in early morning, so I was able to get a shot of the state flags with hardly anyone around.  Just a couple hours later when we were done looking around this area was packed with people.  deserted-walkway-of-state-flags-leading-

Sunsets are ten-a-penny, and after you've fiddled with them, they don't quite look like "the original". This one does, however, and is dedicated to my long-suffering wife, who, as I desperately tried to beat sundown and get to a favoured beach whilst stuck in traffic, pointed out an easier option.

No just this and another with wider angle of the same chap. 

 

I'll expect dozens more on Alamy within a week!

Yes but that's my fault in choosing badly what to post. It was just an honest reaction.....I've made bigger mistakes!

 

Anyway, we are all kind of on the same team. or I like to feel so.:)

 

I'll also check on Stuttercock in a week or two :rolleyes:

I dont think narrow DoF is an issue with QC.

There's still time to delete the image from your post. I've removed it from my quote.

An indulgent photo, I enjoyed seeing, taking and processing it, but can't really see it selling!  Back to the shop fronts etc tomorrow....
