    I noticed in the first picture it says 2pac. The first picture is my favourite.

    Several other people noticed that after the fact as well, neither of us had noticed it when I took the picture.

    That's some good stuff you got there, I especially like the pictures of the band. What kind of camera are you using?

    I've got to experiment with black and white.

    My favorite here is the U of Phoenix. I really like the cloud formation and the fisheye perspective. Also, the lights of the parking lot widen the sunset -- they're about the same hue.

    Thanks for sharing. Here's hoping we get more forum members to post a selected gallery of their images.

    The skies were absolutely amazing that night. One of those thing that doesn't happen too often, so I identified the value of such cloud cover and went out to shoot a couple thousnand photos. Just my friend, the children, and I.

    Well I like the 1st one because it's funny, and the University of Phoenix one because of the sunset, but a lot of the photos from the 1st set didn't interest me at all.

    The 2nd set........lots of ones that kept my interest.

    I think this one is my favourite.
    This photo with the American flag is also cool, but I do wanna see your body (no, I'm not sick :p ). I do want to see a bit more of the uniform standing in front of that ridiculous large flag though.

    I'm a sucker for reflections and thought http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/9738/mediumsmallyan26193qd.jpg was cool.

    http://img528.imageshack.us/img528/6654/mediumsmallyan02955rj.jpg Nice group shot. What lense?

    To eahc, their own, I suppose. Personally, band photography is my favorite and it's hard to find a well-composed concert photograph these days.

    Thank you very much.

    That one certainly is amongst my most favorite shots. It was one of the last 3 shots we did for that day and it ended being my favorite.

    I know what you mean, but unfortunately, if I had panned out even the least llittle bit, you would have seen either the person holding the flag up or the other stuff in the room. which would have distracted you.

    I absolutely love that picture.

    First off, I'm curious to know what that industrial facility is.

    Second, how old are you? Besides having photos that run circles around quite a few of my own, you seem acute and sagacious. Just wondering.

    It's a power plant on the Mississippi in the Twin Cities.

    I'll be 18 on April 26th.

    By the subject matter chosen, I had guessed that you were a young person. I'm curious as to how you can afford to own all those camera bodies and lenses, or are they just "on loan" as part of your school program? I remember that when I took a class in Large Format, we were each issued a 4x5 Calumet for the semester.

    Interesting photos -- some I like better than others, but they all demonstrate a lot of talent.

    All of my equipment, as well as a lot of other stuff that I didn't list, I have acquired by various means. The Mark II N and the 5D as well as a few lenses were given to me as part of a testing program. After the testing program has concluded, I get to keep all equipment that was given to me. Other lenses as well as other camera bodies I paid out of pocket.

    All of the above photos were taken since November aside from three, which were taken in August. They may not be my most technical or most amazing shots I've taken, but all of them have a little story behind them and are my favorites for various reasons.
