    Thank you Antonio! I do have more- lots more! rolleyes1.gif

    I just got back last night from a 7 day road trip through Southern Utah. I have over 1,000 shots I have been trying to go through. Should have more posts by Tuesday and Wednesday.

    These were just some that fit the assignment.

    I know these could be better, but the cobwebs caught my eye.

    These are awesome! Second one just pulls you in.... Make a big print of it! thumb.gif

    I got so excited that I had to go out and shoot me some... Not even close to yours, but at least I got it out of my system:-)

    Thanks Nikolai, praise indeed.

    I almost didn't see the squirrel, but can just see a little face looking down as you look up. I guess he's being protective of his nuts? rolleyes1.gif

    It's a nice shot, yet don't you think it would benefit from a bit more black... ?ne_nau.gif

    Greetings! I have a couple shots I took this weekend that I believe fit the bill. Both were taken while shooting some kite surfing near the Skyway Bridge in FL.

    (link) This one's a bit of a risky angle, and it snuck up on my all of a sudden so I didn't get zoomed in enough. Had to crop a fair bit.
    137709918-L.jpg

    (link) I really like this one. Had to shoot at this angle because of the geography. Not exactly straight p, but sure felt pretty vertical to me :). Shot several of them because the wind was pretty active and the flags were all over the place.

    I took this last night. Now I wish I had a bigger zoom... but here it is.

    Two - totally minute - remarks:
    • it's noticeably angled ne_nau.gif
    • you got a lot of dust on your sensor... rolleyes1.gif
