    Good on you guys and girls. Day 1 is looking good. I haven't signed up because I know I'm going to be out of range of a computer for a slice of July (2nd half).

    Re Chriss' point, the important thing is that each of you post up an image that been taken on 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc July wherever you are. So there could be a 24 hour tailback as those EoG get in first and those WoG come along behind.

    EoG? WoG? Easy - East of Glenfarg. West of Glenfarg. Forget Greenwich. We're the centre of the universe!

    Don't worry about it - it'll all sort itself out exactly 1 day after the month ends, and nobody will ever be able to tell the difference!

    I've been posting a day ahead, figuring that Colin's time zone would control things: I expected that he'd delete anything that wasn't there by midnight Enzed time. You know how inflexible he is.

    Cheers,
    Rick

    Day 02: July 2010 Photo-a-Day Thread

    Also in my PAD album.

    This is a small stream that only runs during rainy periods. Pretty soon, it won't even have any water after a rain.

    Camera Model: Canon EOS REBEL T1i
    Lens: EF-S17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM
    Image Date: 2010-07-01
    Focal Length: 28mm
    Focus Distance: 5.29m
    Aperture: f/11.0
    Exposure Time: 4.000 s
    ISO equiv: 100
    Exposure Bias: none
    Metering Mode: Spot
    Exposure: Manual
    Exposure Mode: Manual
    White Balance: Auto
    Flash Fired: No

    I'm really happy about most of the composition. I didn't crop it by a single pixel: I got exactly what I wanted in the camera, which is rare for me. I like the diagonals and the light.

    But now I think I shouldn't have that out-of-focus small log across the foreground. I thought it would give a feeling of depth to it, but it seems distracting when I see it on the screen: do others feel the same, or am I just having shooter's remorse?

    Any other C&C most welcome.

    Cheers,
    Rick

    Nah - being a creature of the universe, I use UTC (Universal Time Co-ordinated). I am however tempted to give current eMail address of all those who don't vote in the monthly comp (now open for voting, hint hint) to ex-girlgriends and boyfriends (BCC current partners!).

    Re: Day 02: July 2010 Photo-a-Day Thread: Same apple - different bird.

    Day 02: July 2010 Photo-a-Day Thread

    I looked out at that same tree this morning and it was swarming with wax-eyes. These fragile wee birds disappear if great, gallumping sparrows come near. The wax-eyes were my original "hope for" yesterday, but they quickly flew away when the sparrows arrived.
    Wax-eyes are hard to catch - they move very quickly and "flitter" their wings often when feeding, like babies. There was a bit more light today, and less noise than the sparrow image yesterday. This wee one stayed on the apple long enough for me to catch her. Notice that the apple is much more hollowed out than yesterday and there is some light shining through the skin.

    Creation date: 2/07/2010 12:11
    Camera: NIKON D80
    Focal length: 230*mm*(equiv. 345*mm)
    Aperture: F5.6
    Exposure time: 1/400"
    ISO speed rating: 400/27
    Program: Aperture priority
    Metering Mode: Center-weighted average
    White Balance: Manual
    Flash: Flash did not fire

    Rick - You shouldn't have shooters remorse over that. True, the front-most log is oof, but it then gently leads the eye to the back of the view. Voila!

    Thanks Jeroen,
