Hi, I just want to show the very first photo I took that impressed most of the people that saw it which I considered a tap on the back.

This shot was taken in the University of the Philippines. She sells finger foods such as Banana-Q, Turon and Karyoka (sorry these are all excellent Filipino foods) which she does by roaming around the campus with the products on her head for everyone to see.

How do you include a photo in a message like that? <img src=???>?

This is one of my recent favorites. I was just about to get a shot of the donkey when it occurred to me to move down and get it from the dog's point of view... thus, 12 inches changed a simple animal shot into a story.

Ah, thanks MBR71!

misterlevel thats a great shot, I like the perspective. Your best bet to get the code for the picture is click on all sizes then open the medium picture.

Below the picture is the code you need (the larger string) just cut and paste into your post .

Hope this helps

One that I'm proudest for is this one

Swimming Tubes

It's a triple exposure on my Holga. I'm very proud of it because I had completely visualized the picture as I was driving down the street and only saw the air dancer for split second. I thought, that's cool, how could I shoot that, how about underneath, and multiple exposure, ok that's it I'm turning around.

foregoing cactus [deleted] says:

This is one of my favourites taken on a deserted beach in Wales. It was taken with my little Canon A610 but I managed to get the exposure for the clouds pretty much right. I tried to capture the splash of colours in the flag against the angry sky and the flat monotone of the sand. I did a little tweaking with levels in Photoshop but other than that, it's as it came out of the camera.

This was a big one for me because I had just learned about setting up my background, using glass to create a reflection, and it was the first time I ever used photoshop (to make the black t-shirt in the background match the black on the box). This photo represents a step in learning about photography for me.

Unknown (to me) bird by The village idiot2008.


I bought my first DSLR on a cruise in the Caribbean and shot anything and everything. I kept seeing this bird flying around our ship and I desperately wanted to capture it in flight. I figured if I fired enough shots I'd eventually hit my target and I did. I was secretly very proud of myself with this one!

I was only 16 years old and had this FD 35-300 f/3.5L heavier than hell, then Bob Hope turned to me and pointed with his smirk! Only photographer to capture that moment. I should scan it!

Probably the most image based shot I'll ever take. One of those accidental photos too. But I'm really pleased with how it came out.
