    I was a little worried about opening this when I saw the title in the People and Pets. I had visions of a middle aged beach bum having an embarrassing moment with his Speedos.

    Still I was pleasantly surprised. The colours seem a little subdued but I like the metallic effect.

    I think I am going mad. They colours seem fine now. Ignore me I am having a bad day.

    Well I'm confused. It is a nice pic but what has it got to do with people or pets.

    Beach balls for sport, it was shot on the street and it certainly ain't architecture or nature!! You tell me, I'm just as confused. Maybe we need more categories!!
    Still it's good to give the administrators something to do don't you think?!!

    The category People and Pets is basically just that. I think the 'street' refers to street people shots. I don't think there's much appetite for another category. We had a discussion about this recently. I don't have a lot to do.

    You don't need any more intellect with the good quality shots you produce.

    I do like this; the colour is great but most importantly the balance and proportion you have given to each element.

    Well done.

    Another stunner Mike, especially when viewed in the Litebox, or Lytebox. Whatever. The colour is great and the intersecting shapes of the see through balls gives it depth and interest.

    The jumble of color really works in these images...
