It seems the original proportions are not locked and it's not just my images. If you want to see the right dimensions, you must click on an image.

Think we have some overlap here with another thread, though this pic of Tower Bridge is definitely not oversaturated...

Great pictures in this threat already! If it were me to choose it would be difficult to boil it down to finalists.

The church at Gougane Barra, West Cork, Ireland.  I shot a wedding there a few years ago, aisle is only wide enough for one person.  Needless to say the groom walked behind the bride on their way out!!!

A couple of archival pics from me:

 

Eddy Merckx; widely regarded as the greatest ever racing cyclist, at the World Championships in 1970.

British Airways Concorde 206 G-BOAA in flight; England, UK – 1980

Another pic of Concorde added.  It is of the pre production version produced to finalise the version to be used by airlines.

 

Concorde plane 101 G-AXDN (pre-production version) in flight UK – 1974

I also realised when adding the third pic to this post that the film stock used for the three pics were in themselves iconic in their day.  The first pic was taken on Agfacolor CT18, the second pic shot on Kodachrome 64, and the third one taken on Kodachrome II.

Pushbike in second shot is broken, only has 'alf a rear wheel. 

Also was expecting a push-bike in the third shot - assume this bike may be hidden in the bomb compartment?

Nice shots, by the way!
