    Official April 2006 Theme : "Something Fishy", but not something necessarily involving fish.

    End date: 10 pm AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time) Wednesday 31st May 2006.


    This months theme was chosen by oldmanemu, our February Iron Photographer.

    No photos taken before this post will be considered. Please note the closing time is Eastern standard time.

    OK now some news. Due to a number of people posting full size images in the entries threads and trying to keep the final voting thread fair the rules have been changed.
    No thumbs any more. All entries must be exactly 800 pixels on their longest dimension; eg, 800x450 or 600x800. This includes any borders you choose to add.
    This means all entries are as close as possilbe to the same size and no more huge entires linked form thumbs; remember we're on the web. Finally it means no one get an advantage in the final voting thread.

    The complete rules can be read here and here.

    Iron Photographer - May Entries

    Good luck and have fun.

    I find myself lying in bed thinking what I might photograph that fits the theme.. unhealthy I know, but is fun.

    I have some ideas for this month theme. Just have to put them to a reality check

    Thanks, it was very still and cloudy,just after the rain finished, the only light was from the few buildings on the harbour edge and some street lights. I posted some others in this thread http://forums.overclockers.com.au/showthread.php?t=471106
    without getting one comment from 108 views, which I was a little surprised at as usually people like or hate what I post and comment on accordingly.

    Elguapo, I thought your "pubs" entry was good, great ambience but this one's got me puzzled. It's an angel attending..umm..an auction? Not enough detail.

    heres another shot i would love to enter but, alas, I took it last year. This is a massive rock formation just outside Derby here in Tasmaina...painted by a local to look like a rainbow trout.

    I have the perfect idea for this one, first shoot took about 40 shots and not one really stood out.... bloody hard getting the right mood I want, well back to the drawing board, if I pull it off is going to be a classic... :lol:

    Is it OK to enter a panorama , stitched together from multiple shots ?
    ( I've photographed a VERY tall building - It couldn't fit in one shot )

    It's a very nice town to live in. It's just the right size .. big enough to be full of life and shopping oppotunities and not to big as to become a place where everybody is a stranger to one another and where life is always in the fast lane.
    You can take time to slow down , rewind and relax.

    And should you want more excitement , Copenhagen is just on the other side of the Danish/Swedish border.

    It also have lots of nice places to photograph. I like the blend of old danish architecture (The area was danish up until 1658) and the newer swedish architecture, particularly the many interesting ways they use ordinary bricks, combining different colored bricks and creating patterns in what otherwise would have been a plain ordinary and dull brickwall.
