The photography thread!

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
This is a place to post your photographs! Here are a few basic ground rules:
  • Post only your own work - not your friend's, and definitely not from google images! Don't post anything with copyright if you don't own the copyright.
  • Post using the [img ][/img ] tags (without the spaces), not a link to the image. You can upload images to a site like imageshack, tinypic or Flickr for free.
  • The subject can be anything, but keep it clean - this is definitely not a 'pictures of my ex' thread!
  • Don't post huge images - I suggest keeping the maximum width or height to 700 pixels or so (many sites like Imageshack have a resize feature) for people with slower connections.
  • Be nice - we can all accept constructive criticism, but please appreciate everyone has different opinions and tastes.

    That's the most artistic I've ever been, I'm afraid.

    One more. Obviously you can see I have a thing for the extreme close up.

    This is a feather I found yesterday on my walk:

    Edit: cool pics by the way :)

    Sorry I never saw this until now ! Oh they really are good pictures like.

    It's a Panasonic DMC-FZ18. It's just an amazing camera. Macro pics with it really are superb with it, it's got macro at the tele end aswell as close up ! It also takes a really good photo indoors with relatively low lighting aswell.

    It does suffer from terrible noise though which if it were not for this would be a complete camera at this end of the range.

    Injuries sustained taking photos are always completely justifiable :yes:
