We have photo competition, but that does not suit for some other pics we take, so I thought that perhaps some others will be interested to post their not so much car related photos :)

I took some shots today while enjoying sunny weather at lawn. I have only gprs connection still, so can't upload all I would like, however I put few of what I think best shots here:

Those are rather quick so it is not so easy to take good pic of them with 55mm objective while they zoom over your head :lol:

Most of my pictures are cars it seems, I havn't been into photography that long, so still learning what I like taking tbh... but a sneaky car shot in the meantime that I won't get to post anywhere else ;)

But that trend is so last year :lol:

It has boxy shape, so it is not too bad, but it is a car which is not so good either :P

Strawberries have grown quite a bit so I might soon get good pics of red ones 8)

I have to admit i love the old mk2's especially the small bumper ones they have good performance and still have great reliability, my dad had an old mk2 and he said it was the cheapest car to run and maintain hes ever owned and he didn't keep it standard.

Anyways back to the great pics of flowers and what not ill try and get some pics up later today.

Thanks! It's funny because I don't know much about photographing, golden sections and stuff like that. :P I just imagine pic in my mind and take one but it usually works for me. :lol:

I'd like to get a cam which can take decent night shots too.. I've tried to take some with the pocket cam but those always end up grainy. :P

That night shot of Chris' is amazing. :P

Jtbo what cam did you had btw? Great colors in those pics.

Fuse, those of the clouds in the fields and the squrriel are superb!

I got my cam just before xmas (when people were treating themselves to a new one, and part ex-ing there old stuff), never could have afforded it otherwise, all are that cam (Canon 20D), aside from the yacht/moon which is on my firmware hacked Minolta Z2.
