Photo: Looking Up

BEST thing I like: I love the clarity in the focus, with the contrasting bokeh in the background.

Camera: Canon EOS 400D with 50mm f1.4 lens

What I like LEAST: I haven't been able to recreate a picture of this quality since. The white balance could also do with a tweak.


Becks looking up at the fireworks going off around the edge of the Grande Place in Brussels at the new year.

As some people have pointed out the main fireworks were cancelled this year due to a terrorist threat, which was a real shame. Becks is actually looking at fireworks being launched by members of the public from around the edge, where there was less police.

Photo: the mask

BEST thing I like: The black mask on black background... really made the colors jump.

Camera: Pentax Optio 60

What I like LEAST: Lighting was minimal... the colors are actually even more vivid than shown( for instance the red is a true scarlet).

This mask was a school project from my daughter during her Jr. or Sr. year in the highschool. I have always admired the workmanship and vivid colors. It has found a permanent place on top of the bookcase.
