Transit of Venus photographed via a 4" reflector shining into a cardboard box around 07:00 GMT yesterday.

Not very artistic, but historic and circular, as it hasn't happened since 1882, and won't again for a long time.

Oops, sorry; title should be "Circles: A little circle on a big one", but I notice you can't edit & correct the title of a post.

Hey I think its artistic! I wouldn't have thought of it!

I really like how this picture is faded, it sets an eerie tone! Good job!

When this topic wost posted I thought, "If only it was a day earlier!"

I tried making a pin-hole projector but failed, and ended up watching Internet live streams, but you succeeded. For that I say, well done!


And also well done for thinking of doing this.

Well done. Not only on getting the shot but also putting up with the heat. :-)

There is a post in the Other Photographs forum you may like Alan.

I'm thoroughly impressed. Is it pin sharp? No. Is it the epitome of great composition? No. Is it unique and evocative? Yes, yes, yes!
