Pick Of The Gallery - POTG
 
This thread is designed to promote better use of our Gallery, which is a wonderful resource of outstanding images posted since this forum was established in 2007. It is a great opportunity for members to celebrate ten years as a community by nominating their favourite pictorial highlights by other members, some of them old friends that we no longer see.

There is no limit to the number or frequency of nominations that you may make, but you do need to write a few words about why you like each image an ensure the photographer is credited.

This is a non competitive initiative, with no judging and no ranking - essentially everyone is a winner. So let's see what you can find in the Gallery. :)

That's an excellent selection, John. The smoke really emphasises the rays of light breaking through the trees. :)

Here's one of my favourites from Seonnaidh (aka Jon Pear) A stunning BiF when all around were saying Olympus cameras couldn't do it :) I'd be dead chuffed if I could achieve this sort of shot even now with my Mk2 !!! Maybe I need a visit to the wee tea room *yes Hope all is well Jon if you still look in here.

When I hear those kind of remarks, I always ignore them.

Someone once remarked that according to the laws of aerodynamics it was impossible for a bee to fly. Thank goodness, that info was never passed on to the bee.

On that subject, anyone picked up this weeks AP. Front cover story '30 Mirrorless Myths Busted'. Good plug.

Belated thanks to Zuiko for rescuing what looked like becoming a rather disappointing 'heated' discussion. Am away now for a couple of weeks, but when I get back will endeavour to grapple with creating a Gallery, and contributing to POTG. Thanks John Z.

Having done a bit of underwater photography I appreciate how difficult it is to get shots this good...

This is an image by BenVendetta with an E-M1 & 45mm f1.8 of Valis Volkova.

I like the composition, particularly the deliberate loss of vertical, accentuating a diagonal pose, with Valis' face remaining upright.
Really nicely done.

As a sailor, I reckon she deserves a rest, but wonder whether she could float again...............

As my other pastime is sailing...............

Aware that we might loose the gallery, so making the most of it just in case.

(Thanks for correcting my other post..............*chr)

A coat or two of paint and she'll be right as rain (I don't think). :)

You'll find some tins in Davey Jones' locker. Just use those. :D
