  1. We are now closed to entries. Thanks to all who've submitted. I'll put a poll up with my shortlist in the next few days.
  2. Last day today, folks. Any more entries to be posted by midnight tonight GMT.
  3. One week left! Thanks to all who've entered so far. I can see I'll have my work cut out whittling down the shortlist.
  4. There's a reasonable art/fine art photography market in the US. Plus he's involved with Lollipop magazine.
  5. There's a piece on this guy - Joshua Paul. Shoots modern Formula 1 with a 1913 Graflex. Wonderful stuff.
  6. Having made my way back to Yorkshire from wild West Wales, here's this month's challenge. I don't think we've had the subject of "Failure" before so let's go with that. (If we have and I've missed it, please let me know. I'm prepared for the irony). I'm thinking that it might be a mechanical failure, human failure, economic failure or something else entirely. Serious or humorous, major or trivial... you get the drift. Please post up to three of your images. Closing date is midnight UK time on the 31st October. Here's some not-particularly-startling examples from me: I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Best of luck!
  7. Thanks for the kind comments all. As ever, there were some impressive entries and I'm delighted to have topped the poll. Thanks Steve for a great subject and competitive shortlist; I know it's a cliché but it's true - any shortlisted image would have been a deserved winner. I'm en route back from West Wales at the moment (RedSnapper's stamping ground) so I'll get the next comp up and running on Tuesday.
  8. Thanks for the nomination, Steve. A great mix of wild and dot-so-wild critters. Good luck everyone.
  9. First time I've done this for a while. A Eurasian Brown Bear with a Black-Headed Gull in close attendance in a forest on the Finnish/Russian border . . Two Northern Gannets disputing who has first dibs on the fish, the North Sea, off Bempton/Flambrough, UK . . Juvenile Mountain Gorilla munching on some vegetation in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda
  10. We might also have to recalibrate what we think of as a "crappy photo".
  11. Acksherly, "humorous" is the correct British English spelling too, in spite of the humour/humor difference.
  12. If you're shooting raw, in-camera colour space choice doesn't matter (i.e. aRGB or sRGB). I don't think anyone in this thread has said not to get an accurate colour balance.
  13. If you're shooting raw, your choice of colour space in camera is immaterial. Much like putting a DPI value in unless you're printing a hard copy (with the caveat that you should always put 300 DPI in the EXIF data because people who don't understand resolution think they're getting a "hi-res" image...)
  14. The main reason I gave up film photography was because of the animal welfare issues inherent in film's manufacture and processing.
