More cool images. Really cool. Especially that you got to eat yours "thedoctor".

Well... I changed my mind and decided to go with this one.

Hello Jewel, don't believe I've seen you here before...welcome! Rules for the challenge are the following:
1. Picture taken with a Pentax/Samsung DSLR
2. Picture taken within the last 90 days
We recommend image dimension to be 800 pixels on its longest side.
I was unable to read your EXIF information, but it works on an honor system anyway.

Forum members vote on the winning image (no specific criteria) at the end of the month. The winner gets bragging rights and the task of assigning the following month's theme!

Anyway I have been having a think about what I could enter for this months competition, was thinking of a small patch of blue sky in amongst the clouds but there hasn't been any nice patches. So I have tried to be a bit creative, what do you think? I got to eat my subject as well which was nice.

Did you eat the red ones last?

Hi Everyone. Lots of cool shots. Since I'm just back from a brief holiday in the north of West Australia, an appropiate photo for this month may be the attached:
A "blue" whale in the deep blue off Ningaloo reef. We spotted it and companions when they "blew".
Taken with K20D and Tamron 80-210.

beachboy2, great shot. I imagine it was tricky to plan for the right moment to trip the shutter.

Not at all. Just took lots of frames. Hardest thing was keeping the manual lens focussed-one of those times I would like to have had my Bigma in use!
