Chris Kamara -

 
I reckon at some point everyone has taken a photograph that they're really proud of, and are more than happy to show it to other people. Well with this thread you can do exactly that. Post up your favourite photographs, but strictly only ones you've taken yourself. They can be of anything.. people, objects, scenery.. whatever you've taken that you like best. If you can, for the sake of the flow of the thread, try and size the images to 800 x 600 or less, but if you don't know how, then don't worry and go ahead and post anyway. I might re-size them for you if I get chance

If you want to write a few lines about each photo you post then feel free, but if not, then no problem. Oh, and strictly no conversation that isn't related to the photos, ta ;p

Two photographs of mine that I particularly like:

1. A photograph I took of Sarah during the summer while we were at the Giants Causeway. A few things on it could have been better; but I like the mood of this photo. It's one I've been meaning to print and frame for a while.

2. A photograph I took while in a park, also in Ireland. This time it's in colour and this time I have actually got it printed out. I especially like the reflection of the blue sky in the dark water.

Now it's your turn If you could try and keep the photos per post down to just a few, so the thread will stay nice and fresh, that'd be great.

Great idea I'll sticky it so everyone can post and it doesn't get lost on the board.

I think the fact that my cardigan is scrunched up on my knee in the first pic spoils the mood But otherwise, nicely taken pics. I love the way the sky is almost lavender over the lake in Lurgan park

Agreed on the nice thread idea.

And both nice photographs, Martin. On the top one with Sarah is the fading on the left hand side postwork of any kind, or is that how it came out? Either way it's good - it subtlety draws attention to the centre whilst preserving the background. I like it.

I like an escalator because an escalator can never break, it can only become stairs. There would never be an "Escalator temporarily out of order" sign, only an "Escalator temporarily stairs. Sorry for the convenience."

Cheers

There was a little bit of manipulation afterwards (for a start, the photo was taken in colour originally ;p) but I thought it looked nicer in black and white.

Hopefully this thread will take off quite well; I like looking at other peoples photographs more than I like to look at my own.

Here's a picture I took on a trip to London. It's Trafalgar Square, for those who don't recognise it. Like the pigeons aren't a give away :p. They were flying around pretty quickly because people were throwing down seed, so as one of them was swooping I moved the camera with it as I pressed the shutter. I like how it turned out

wow gary thats really great! i didnt see the one pigeon at first and still thought it was really cool because it showed all the movement and bustle (perhaps symbolic of all of london?) but i really like the pigeon in the middle.

I was the same as you there, Amie, but when I looked at the main pigeon, the background seemed to move. Nice capture.

me and my sister got starbucks and i say this picture is "us"; a little symbolism with the matching cups

[http://www.vegetablerevolution.com/Resources/Photos/art/sunshine.sized.jpg]
even i think this one is a little ugly, and a little busy with all the stuff around the letters, but i really love how the letters that say "sunshine" came out, all colorful and angel-y

also they are a lot better quality when they are not shrunk down and posted on forums

Mine aren't very good- but hey- I've only had a camera a while.

These first three are the result of a jaunt I had to test out what my camera could do... so you may notie a slight repetiveness in them... The third is my favourite, and currently my computer's backdrop.

This is Fyfe Dangerfield. This picture was entirely accidental, but I like the effect:

and a prize of nothing to anyone who guesses where this picture was taken (and the file name is NOT actually a hint, suckas!)

i really like #3 and #5. they are all nice but those three are my favorites. i like close ups and architecture


there are three types of people in this world: those who can count and those who cant (i am in the latter category)

I know where the last one of Mark's was taken Best city in the world... well, maybe not, but you know... Love it by the way, as well as the one of Fyfe Dangerfield.

Anyways, these are some of my favourites from when I went to Vietnam:

[http://photos-801.ak.facebook.com/ip002/v49/8/76/223604457/n223604457_483801_4736.jpg]
Nha Trang. Not the best photo in the world, but I like how it feels so peaceful. During the day around there was really hectic, but it was night and we were all relaxed and just happy, and this kind of sums up how I was feeling at the time.

[http://photos-687.ak.facebook.com/ip002/v49/8/76/223604457/n223604457_474687_5795.jpg]

Both of those are near Ninh Binh. This was the first time we'd really had a taste of the scenery Vietnam had to offer, and it was pretty spectacular!

[http://photos-702.ak.facebook.com/ip002/v49/8/76/223604457/n223604457_474702_5098.jpg]
I love all the detail you can see in this one. It's of Sapa, where we trekked- possibly one of the most amazing places on Earth.

[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v458/ElusiveMoose/Travelling/Vietnam/Vietnam082.jpg]
This isn't a particularly spectacular photo, but I like what it shows. We were playing a game with the kids, where they'd keep ducking if they saw one of us trying to take a photo (we weren't harrassing them before anyone says anything- they actually love having their photos taken :p). Then I was walking away down the hill, turned around really quickly and got this shot. It's where we stayed after our first trek through the jungle. I also love how you can see the traditional stilt house, with the motorbike parked underneath. Sums up Vietnam perfectly, really!

Why couldn't the VR photo competition have entries like these?..some really beautiful pictures up already.  
Mood-wise, I really like Martin's Black and white photo at Giants' Causeway and Mark's one of Fyfe Dangerfield. Visually, Gary's pic of the Pidgeon in motion is pretty damn impressive, I love the artistry of the picture..and Amy's photo of the two Vietnamese fishermen (guess) really captures the soul of rural vietnam for me. Great stuff guys.

My pics Not great but i like them hehe.

The first one is a picture i took of Martin and my feet on the shore before he was about to catch the plane home a few months back. I like the stillness and the closeness of it

This is another pic i took of the same shore, looking out across Belfast lough.
