    Choose your best image shot in the month of May (only one mind) and post it below. Sorry thread is late, having probs logging onto Serious Compacts this month!

    Hope you all are well and had a great month with lots of photo opportunities!

    Much more photographic activity from me this month, so a difficult choice and if I revisited this in five minutes time I might be tempted to alter my mind :confused:.

    Jeez Andy - this looks almost like HDR, but I zoom in and realize its just the incredible and amazing resolution of the DP1M. Just stunning stuff. I'm supposed to be getting a loaner of that camera any day now to keep through July. I'm quite psyched to try one out. I hope I can get even CLOSE to this kind of result...

    I've had an unusually productive month so its difficult to choose

    but I'm opting for this - a slightly improved version over the image I posted

    Europa and the Bull (2)

    Can you clarify what adaption on the Tamron used here? Was it an Adaptall II lens or a later version?

    No question for me.Has to be this oversaturated pic that reminds me of the opening scene from one of my favorite films,David Lynch's"Blue Velvet."

    I guess it has to be this one. Not because of composition or IQ but because the couple on the bench fascinated me: what are they thinking? is this their favorite spot? do they come often? What kind of life do they live?

    Karen, thanks so much for starting this thread because it's such an inclusive one and one that I can actually add to!:biggrin:

    Been rather consumed with moving, renovating, etc., but this is one that shows a bit of why we've moved to our new digs. Some friends were coming over and we were ready, at least outside, for them. Have really only been using my iPhone4 because I haven't got time for pping except on the and uploading via Flickrstacker.

    Perhaps we can do this for June, too?

    The joys of renovating eh, seems the whole world goes by...I almost missed a change of Prime Minister when I was doing mine !

    Agreed, great thread and definitely hope for a June edition.

    Here's my fave from the month of May. I just love how this guys looks to be jealously guarding his burger and fries, although I reckon he is toying with the idea of tossing the gull a chip.
