Tom I just changed the viewing angle of the screen, and I could see you no problem. Well done.

Gio67's photo inspired me to make my latest entry. Unfortunately I had nothing as cool as the Trevi fountain for a background, so I thought how much evidence could I pack into one photo... I believe I have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd order of evidence. Let me know what you think, John.

Please excuse the flare and the smudges on my sunglasses. It was a hot and sunny day on the beach. John

John, you doubled the evidences in there; face and the reflection of the hands.... : ) Good approach!

An other reflective surface in the scene and the evidence could be tripled....

Yildiz, you missed the third evidence. The reflection of the shadow!

No photos from me while parasailing. I considered it, but the risk was too great... Ian got one as I was leaving the boat on the parachute, and Dannelle got a couple of me in the air, as well as the kids... We are about to leave now, I'll try to post them tomorrow. John

There is a spooky element with your shadow falling across the gravestone :shock: .

A difference with this shot is that it is (probably?) the only one where the photographer does not have the camera to their eye.

Yes, I walked until the shadow was placed right. The head and shoulder areas has a sort of green glow too at full size, from the penumbral light reflected off the grass. Also, using the LCD screen to compose greatly improves the chance of 'seeing' a picture like this properly; it just seemed more graphic then normal.

Actually I'd like an even larger, higher resolution screen to compose on!

Good one...yet a spooky one, David.

Good timing with the daylight.

The grass is discernible under your shadow, is it a PP or the sensor having a wider sensibility zone?

Blimey David, what long legs you have got :D

It seemed to me that every photo I took when I first had my fisheye, especially upright format, had my feet on! I've just had a look through some old shots but cannot find any now. I have either deleted them or cropped them off.
