    Cool No Nature Shots allowed !! Showcase your other photographic skills

    All to often I have seen people make comments that people on this forum (or those who own a 4x4) must be interested in nature photography. It's an assumption I find rather odd, perhaps because other than landscapes, I don't have much interest in wildlife photography.

    So here's an opportunity for you to show and / or improve your artistic skills. You can post anything from sports, to still lifes, and any amount of digital manipulation is allowed. The only rule is it can't be a nature photograph or a landscape, unless it is in some way an abstract.

    Just a couple of my humble pics







    Mods, sticky please, so too with the nature thread

    Children are fun to work with, they listen to what you have to say and I love the expressions on their faces.

    Being vague is almost as fun as doing this other thing.

    These don't translate too well from the original slide film....scanned in a cheap slide scanner, I'm afraid. Still, I like them!

    Both are from Fez in Morocco back in the 90s. The guy with the Fez on his head is standing in front of his make-up stall.

    It's not for me to judge, because one guy's dud might be another's eye-candy. What I was angling at is the kind of thing that would make you stop and look again in a magazine or newspaper, and say, hey cool photo.

    But MikeAG's and a couple of Fatboys I like most. I'm intrigued as to where you took that M1 concept.

    These are from a friend of mine and fill the criterion in bold above

    Who took that photo of the Mercury outboard?!?!?!?
    That guy is a genius with a camera! I think we should give him R1000 or something for blessing us all with his fantastic pictures! Don't you agree?
