Yeah, I seriously doubt I do. Work, sleep, surf P-O-T.N, maybe cut the grass, make dinner for my daughter (and now that school's in) check homework ....

Im sure others will have more exciting things going on in their lives. Im out this time around...

You have got to be kidding:eek: Try taking photos of your daughter eating dinner or doing her homework? I am sorry but to me this is a very negative response to the theme. If i had a daughter i would have hundreds of thousands of shots to bore the world with.;)

Well, here's an example from these forums of someone's daughter having breakfast:

There are lots of ways to make great photos of our everyday lives. That's the point of getting a DSLR isn't it?

1/30 exposure (to blur the taxi)

rawshorty - "Let me contemplate that" - This is nicely composed, with a great expression on his face. The subject is well isolated. Nice.
rawshorty - "bird" - Nicely isolated, with great color. The bird is well-posed too. How do you do that? :)

kent andersen - "A stock market picture" - Interesting angle. The subject's hands are the focus, but her eyes come through the background too. It does look like a photo for an ad, actually (not in a bad way).

Ryan_in_the_U.P. - "My Little Sleeping Princess" - The pic isn't coming up for me today. I'll look again later.

My vote is for kent andersen.

Kent Anderson.....I like the dof in this one, the focus is on the hand but keeps the rest of the subject oof but visible.
Ryan in the U.P....A very nice shot of your princess here, i like how the child is lit up and the surrounding area is dark.
Sfmurph "Grand opening".....I like how you set the shutter to capture the taxi moving but the picture is tilted to the left a bit and i kept seeing that every time i looked.Your story on it reminded me of a store we had here that had a closing down sale sign on it for 12 years before it closed down :)
Sfmurph "Candles".......A good try at this but to me i think if the backgroung was black with just the flame and top of the candles seen it would have had a good impact.

As for my bird shot, set lens to 500mm,shoot at 8 frames a second,take lots of photos and hope at least one comes out right :)

My vote goes to Kent Anderson

Rawshorty - #1 Love his attitude. Good lighting and isolation of the little guy.
#2 Excellent sharp image with really good bokeh. All the details are crisp and color is great as well.

Kent Anderson - Classic stock type shot for a magazine that is well executed. Nice focus on her hands as well.

sfmurph #1 Good selection of shutter speed to blur the taxi. The whole shots has a feeling that it is running down hill to the left.

#2 Candles - Good concept, I would of went with a solid dark background. I think a lower iso would darkened the back ground more and brought out more of the detail in flames.

My vote goes to Shorty for the bird shot.

By my count it's 2 votes for Kent and 1 for Shorty. Shall we declare Kent the winner this week? There has been no additional votes in the last 24 hours.
