    There's a choice of subjects for this month's assignment - after some late voting.

    So you've got Quiet or Transportation - or both if you're feeling clever!

    The idea is that members will go out and try to find their own way of interpreting the monthly theme thus improving their photographic eye. Posting is open to all MR members, and encouraged.

    You must have taken the picture yourself between 7 and 30 November 2006. If you took a picture that fits the assignment but was taken earlier, then post it in the Gallery: Quiet or Transportation thread instead.

    Anyone can enter from those with (D)SLRs from P&S to cameraphones although they should be pictures that you think are good rather than just snapshots. The goal is not to 'win' but to share the enjoyment of taking pictures and learn from others.

    Some basic rules on commenting (basically be nice!) are listed. Changes to the rules should be discussed there just as remarks about the topic(s) chosen should be kept in the poll thread. Let's keep this thread just pictures and comments on them if possible

    Post your pictures in this thread by the end of November with a title and we'll start commenting (make sure you title your comments referencing the pic you are commenting on)

    I know it many of you this may not fit "Quiet", but I think it (sort of) does, and quite frankly, I'm afraid of how slowly this month's assignment is going. :eek:

    And besides, the beaches in Australia are never this dead and empty, not even at sunset.

    Nothing really hit me too hard... So...

    This is "quiet" because I turned my volume on my guitar all the way down to zero.

    The motion blur of background makes that bike seem even quieter. :)

    especially because it's sort of 'blocking out' the car thats in the background.. making it super quiet infact.

    very warm :)

    You mean you stole some poor old granny's bike to take the photo? Crumbs, anything goes on MR! I can just picture her coming out of a shop and chasing your sister down the street, handbag swinging...:)

    Skatekid

    Well, inspiration has been a long time in coming to me for this months assignment but I eventually decided to get off of my lazy butt and get down to the local skate park. This kid was absolutely incredible!! He is 7 :eek: yes, 7 years old and according to his Dad been skating for three years. This is my first time shooting skating so any critique would be appreciated. Next plan, get the bloody flash off camera!

    Hope you like the picture.

    I had to get one into this one because I seem to spend my life taking pictures on or of transportation. Apart from this month, it seems, as 'tis a mad one.

    But, earlier in the month I took this one, as it seemed to sum up my transport situation at the time — sitting on steamed up buses in the rain. :p It reminded me of a painting the way the window was wiped and things were reflecting and showing through. I'd have liked it to be sharper, but haven't had time to retake it.

    I like to ride my bicycle...

    I like to ride it where I like.

    I barely made it. Took this shot a week ago, and just got it scanned in tonight.

    Maybe Applespider is away. Should we start a theme suggestion thread anyway?
