    Official April 2006 Theme : "Potential Hazard"

    End date: 10 pm AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time) Sunday 30th April 2006.


    This months theme was chosen by Pennychook, our January Iron Photographer.

    No photos taken before this post will be considered. Please note the closing time is Eastern standard time.
    Thumbnails should be less than 200 pixels wide, for ease of viewing and I would suggest that the linked larger photo should be less than 1600 pixels on the longer side.
    Just a reminder on the rules for the challenges. Photo must be taken this month.

    Good luck and have fun.

    Probably. I wasn't paying much attention to where I was taking photos at the time.

    Incidentally, I swear I saw one of the OCAU guys from the BNE meet in the city somewhere.

    Took me a long time to even find a snail in the garden thanks to the Chooks.

    Just a reminder to all entrants - max width for thumbnails is 200px. I've got caught out before (forgot to resize the thumb)...

    As happy as I am that there are already so many entries for this months competition, there are a couple things that need adressing.

    No photos taken before April 1st will be considered.
    Thumbnails should be less than 200 pixels wide.

    Any entry breaking these rules will be disqualified.

    Great idea, got a good laugh from me. I'd consider resizing it to something small, it really doesn't need to be 1600pix long.

    Very potential hazard.

    I would also suggest getting the pins in focus - set the shot up on a tripod, and set the camera to 'Av' mode, and dial in an f stop of about 8 on the camera, and focus on the pins. This should bring the rest of the condom in focus.

    OK i changed it a lil...

    changed the white pins to green ones for a lil more contrast. Changed the angle a lil and tried to get the pins in focus more....

    Heres my second attempt

    My thoughts are it is a great improvement. I am wondering though whether a black bacjkround would suit it better ?
