    April 2010 Photo Showcase: Late

    It seems in all our discussion about what the next monthly Photo Showcase topic should be we simply missed the beginning of the month!
    {You might have thought our April Fools joke was to NOT post a topic for the month of April}

    In that vein, I propose this topic.
    As photographers we are always seeking out that PERFECT SHOT; the one that captures an entire sequence or a novel-sized description of an event in just one frame.

    This month, you are challenged to show us what happens just a moment later. Right after that perfect moment there is another slice of time that is equally compelling and interesting. Let's see it.
    Don't be yourself. Be someone a little nicer. -Mignon McLaughlin, journalist and author (1913-1983)

    You have a great gasp of this topic!

    Thanks for the comment ParkinT; do you think everybody else is going to wait until May to post so they can be "late"

    This little guy was staring right at me and then, as you would expect, he moved!

    Your photo WarpNacelle reminds me of one I tried taking a few years ago:
    A brown horse and white pony face to face on a small hillock; mountains in the background.
    I stopped at the gate and by the time I had my camera out they had trotted over to see what I was doing

    What is it about horses! Don't they want their picture taken?

    Very nice photos _my_pov the quality is great. I see you have a Canon camera; I have just brought a 500D and am struggling with the depth of field.
    I need to get out an practice more.

    Whoa!
    We had better reign-in this humor before it is too late!
    I don't want to stirrup any trouble on this forum.



    *Outstanding pun, BTW, Warp. Bravo.

    I was waiting (in the Cell lot) at Orlando International Airport and caught(?) this.



    Notice the airplane in the lower-left corner of the frame.

    That's funny. I wouldn't have noticed the plane if you hadn't pointed it out. Were you trying to take a picture of it taking off?

    When I arrived at the cell lot I was witness to a PERFECT PHOTO opportunity with a plane that passed directly behind the sign (much larger in the frame than this one) and appeared to the left of the sign; at a very 'artistic' climb angle.

    A storm was approaching and, apparently, the wind shifted. Once I got my camera out and waited for the next take-off they began coming from a different direction.
