    Everyone's pictures are very inspiring, those and the critiques are my muse. That was another lucky photo as I had no tripod (I was using a stick) and most turned out blurry, again using available light.
    Roy,

    Are you using a DSLR (interchangeable lenses)?

    Do you play with increasing the ISO setting?

    Thanks for the idea Whatever the assignment this week, Ill try to find it in a portrait.

    Fantastic Idea - Will try to do the same. There should be lots of material given the Holiday.

    Thanks, Paul. Kudos to Voni for pointing it out

    I wonder if Tom will make an exception for the holiday to extend the weekend assignment to include Thursday. We would need the subject by Wednesday, of course.

    What do you think, Tom?

    It is as though you were reading my mind. . . .

    Ditto on the portrait idea. Anyone smell a theme brewing?

    Nope. It is an Olympus digital camera.
    I didn't mess with ISO at all (I didn't even think of it)
    19 BMWMOA Nationals under my belt, and I have no idea what I am doing.

    I will admit to running this through Smugmug's auto color correction.

    When I look back at many shots from all over the world it is always the pictures with people in them that are my favorites.
    Interesting. I was thinking about this too and I found Paul's interpretation with the three ladies to be one of the most intruiging interpretations of the theme posted this week. And as a side note, on my pbase site of nearly 11,000 images, those with a human presence (portrait, casual shot, etc.) get significantly more views than those without human presence. It's an old advertising hook as well: shots that include people are viewed more and longer than those that do not include people.

    I didn't shoot anything this week.

    Edit: Dave, color correction or not, that's a beautiful shot! Awesome shooting.

    +3 it is almost surreal, more of a painting than a photograph!

    What was your vantage point in taking this, and is that the Golden Gate or some other bridge?

    I'm not sure there is any award for the most triangles, but counters can take a crack at the windmill tower base in #22 in this thread. I'm not sure I know the correct answer either - but I took about 15 shots before I decided I liked this one the best.

    This is a great site. Lots (365) portrait ideas... I really like some of the wide-angle shots. A new lens just made it to my Christmas list!

    GREAT shot!

    What did it look like before the color correction?
