oops! (wrong time, wrong place) by marekboguszak

Wrong time – lamps went out a minute ago (and the sun did not make its way through the fog and clouds in the next 2 hours). Wrong place – either you get same shot as many others or (even worse) you get same shot but enriched by many tripods and photographers. 🙂

Foggy morning on Charles Bridge in Prague.

Geomarchitectural painting by ninjatransvestite

This proved a challenging shot as the focus-system insisted to focus on the lines making out the partitions of the windows in front.

Fine, I just go to “manual” focus.. but this was VERY hard with such a tiny viewfinder. (one of the drawbacks shooting with a Nikon D3000)

Actually catching the focus of this painting is not the easiest thing I have done. But I ended up satisfied never the less :o)

Anchored In Maritime History by 1davidmcmahon

Chandeliers inspired by nautical anchors are a striking feature of Singapore’s Clifford Pier, a historic maritime terminal that is now a high-profile restaurant. I shot this through a cascade of white orchids that echoed the colonial-era roof.
