6 Days to go ...
Canon 500D, EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM, 580EX on-camera fill flash, full EXIF, PAD slideshow.
Too much macro, I know, but we keep having these hazy, humid days. This beetle was really munching on some clover. I haven't been able to identify it. I need to spend more time in bug guide. He/she's about 2cm long or so.
I don't think there can ever be too much macro, especially when they are this standard.
Colin, I don't think I've ever seen a dud photo from you. There is always just enough and no more than it takes to tell the story.
Portrait of the artist as a Wet Shag.
My wife captured this photo of me, from the comfort of the front seat of our car, late yesterday. I was in pursuit of the evocative but elusive, misty rainforest shot. Not too sure how it will turn out as I have quite a few raindrop spots to photoshop out.
Shot this morning under very harsh light and worked on the usual programs.
I did not use any polarizing filter. May be I should as the water has a lot of reflections...
The "carving" you see at the far right is a cement factory which is gradually eating the mountain (Serra da Arrábida).

Later in the day... before dinner and still with 37 Centigrade

Wonderful shots with a phone, Colin: it shows it's the artist, not the brushes. so will you do like Rob, and give away your 1Ds?
I love the sky, Kit: cropping with the horizon low works perfectly here. It's good you didn't slavishly follow "the rules."
It looks wet and miserable, Grant: we do this for "fun," right?
What iPhone do you have? They are impressive shots for a phone camera. Did you PP them very much?
Incredible shot, Rob. Beautiful detail, wonderful colors, brilliant composition with the close crop. I'll show off my total lack of knowledge again, and guess orchid?
The first is well done, António, but I like the second even better. The darkened sky and the darker colors in the sea (tide out, maybe?) make it a much more interesting composition.
Pops, the first shot really rocks - the delicate feather against the blast of red flowers, with nice bokeh background: it's all there. The second makes me smile, but I must say things are a little cluttered. But I know what it's like: cats do what they do, and the photographer has to deal with it.
