    You may have hit on why I prefer it too. It's less 'obvious' than the colour image, which 'gives it all away' immediately. Yep that's probably it. Now back in the box.
    I can't tell (no smilies or "frownies"), but I hope my comment didn't offend you. If so, I apologize and ask you to forgive me. For clarification I was speaking about all of the photos posted thus far being in one manner or another "in the box." No one yet, in my humble opinion, has pushed the boundaries technically or aesthetically in a single image and I thought your shot was a highly artistic, yet successful intrepretation.

    No. Please continue to share. We all are richer for it.

    I'm with Voni, Ben. Part of the fun is in the critique. How are we to see otherÔÇÖs perspectives if we arenÔÇÖt aware of them? Feedback should be positive when possible, but above-all it should be genuinely intended to improve the photography.

    For me the above is my favorite, (with the hand being a close second) the lighting and composition really jumped out at me, I love the way the keyboard draws the viewer into the frame to girl's fingers which almost appear to be buried in the keys as if "melded" to them and the way that takes the viewer up to her face. One really gets a sense of Harmony and Connection, as though the musician and instrument are indeed one. the orange tint to the whole adds softness and mutes the lighting and really helps set the overall mood, one really gets the sense of the concentration of the musician and her involvement with the instrument, I can almost hear the notes being played and reverberating about the space within the shot.

    Very Nicely done!

    First, you need to paste in your image:

    [IMG]*http://SNC1923.smugmug.com/photos/220787585-L.jpg[/IMG]

    You then need to copy the EXIF info. To do that (in SmugMug, press "exif." When the window opens, click on and copy the exif link. Paste that information inside "URL" anchors:

    [*URL]http://snc1923.smugmug.com/photos/newexif.mg?ImageID=220787585[*/URL]

    You then place image link embedded within:

    [*URL=http://snc1923.smugmug.com/photos/newexif.mg?ImageID=220787585*][*IMG]http://SNC1923.smugmug.com/photos/220787585-L.jpg[*/IMG][*/URL]

    I've used asterisks to show the code. Remove them and the result, an image linked to your EXIF data, looks like this:

    This has to be my favorite this week. I really like the way the white and blue of the bike are exactly replicated on the Holiday decorations in the background. Perfect harmony with the two main subjects.

    Thanks to everyone for their posts this week. This has become my favorite "Go-To" thread.

    Great stuff.
    While it is generally a real pain, sometimes the results of suffering from dyslexia can be pretty humorous as when I read the above comment, at first glance the word "insightful" came across as "insipid"! I had to do a double take, WHAT?? That certainly doesn't sound like something Tom would say!!??? Then on a second reading I saw it was ÔÇ£insightfulÔÇØ NOT ÔÇ£insipidÔÇØ! Boy, was THAT a relief!

    Ha Ha!!!

    Too Funny!

    You are apologizing because you actually do believe I live in a box?

    Of course it's a joke, I actually live in a cupboard where I have three shelves all to myself and am only let out on alternate weekends!

    No offence taken, or even considered.

    RR, Bungay in Essex?

    I lived near there. What squadron was he with?

    He flew with the 446th Bombers group and the 389th, as a Left Waist Gunner.

    His plane was the Rough Buddy. After he flew 30 missions, he was transferred off that plane. On a mission soon after that, it was shot down with all hands on board.
    They flew in the lead on every mission, and he was on the plane that had the radar on it. He has some great stories. Like how they referred to Ladies of ill repute as Picadilly Commandos. At first, Americans were Overpaid, oversexed and over here, but once the Yanks started buying rounds for their English buddies, friendships soon formed. I have heard there is a museum over there for the men of the 446 Bombers group. I would like to see it someday. If you have any relatives that could take pictures even, my dad would probably like to see them.

    Obviously I was just trying to elevate my status by saying I had a cupboard!

    Please note the styrofoam furniture...I call them scatter cushions.
    Anyone want to visit?

    That was my thinking too. I'll see if I can get someone to pay a visit...no promises tough as I can't commit other folk on their behalf. Let's see what we can do.
