21 Awesome Reader Photos

Purple Heart

Photography Bay has had a Flickr group for about a year or so now.  We’ve featured readers’ photos from the group during contests; however, I wanted to take this opportunity to simply show off some of your photos that you’ve shared in the Photography Bay Flickr pool.

I’ve chosen these just because they jumped out at me and I had to stop somewhere.  We’ve got nearly 500 members and many of you contribute to the pool on a regular basis.  We’re now at over 2100 images, which I find very inspiring.

In addition to Kirstein’s photo above, there’s 20 more coming up.

    Thank you for selecting my photo “Purple Heart” and exhibit it on your front page. I’m very happy, that it was selected. It is one of my first photos taken with the execelent Nikkor 60mm f/2.8 Micro ED glas from Nikon.

      @Lars – It’s a great image. I was very impressed with your other images as well. That Nikon 60mm Micro is serving you well it seems. You’ve got a great collection of images on Flickr. Thanks for dropping by with the comment and please continue to contribute to our Flickr group.

    I see one of mine in there too. Thanks guys! :-)I had to wait hours to get the light just right for that shot. (Only because I was so keen I got there hours early!).

    I’d like to know your opinion on the way picture authors put signatures and complete copyright or website data in the flesh or in the margin of their photographs. As a black and white filmist I’m lucky to be able to write and sign in pencil on the paper backside!

      @Tom – That’s a very good question and I just happened to notice an interesting discussion on one of Nicole Young’s photos on Flickr today or yesterday (thanks to Rich Legg point it out on twitter – see twitter.com/leggnet).

      In short, there are a number of different thoughts on how to sign/watermark your photos. I’ll leave you with the link to Nicole’s photo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/nicolesy/3939057818/

      Feel free to join in that discussion or bring your thoughts back here in the comments.
