  • 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.

        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.
        It's not what inspires us that is important, it's where the journey takes us.

          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...

                I like the new avatar Wally.

                  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.

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

                            I'm sure you can recommend a good brand to use.
                            It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.

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