Thanks folks.
Mike, it would be good to know whom that photo belongs to.
It would be good to put the images straight to here as well for all to see easily.
Keep them coming!

Must say the Simon Palmer image may have got it if Cole hadn't got there first Tongue

Doing injustice to a lot of others that I could have chosen just as well, but you said just one, so here goes : President Obama by Wim de Vos (sorry, don't know how to insert the photo directly Sad )
2 Jan 2011 12:30AM
oh... forgot... I like it so much for its simple yet very effective composition. Obviously Mr. Obama is iconic, but you also feel the isolation he got into during the last year. In that sense I would even call it an important photo. Then there is the street aspect. the little joke, of the president himself seeming to be disrupted and even annoyed by the passer-by. Finally (also quite typical for street), it also connects two worlds, that of real life and life within the tv screen.
For me this is what photography is all about.
A natural portrait, no gimmick, no overcooking in photoshop, no supposedly arty set up.
This is the capture of a special moment, of a special character.
It's not a cliché.
It's unique.

Do you think this thread would work better if people inserted the photos rather than a link?

Cheers.
Yes, it would, Ade, I have already mentioned it on top of this page.
I don't know how to insert an image which is not mine.
How do you do it?

I don't know the right way either.
But I saved the photo to computer first then uploaded it here.

yeah - right click on the photo - save it to your PC - then upload it as if it were yours, then just delete it from your PC - job done.

I really have no clue what to add to this thread - probably an Ambient Life shot I guess... or maybe some Geraint shot

my fave of the year, going by my awards list Smile
it's by INK74 and when i'm looking at my award gallery it's always the one which i have another view of first, it never fails to make me smile, apart from the fact i love the comp & processing

it's soooo hard to choose though!!!!!!
Here is the photo from Nikola (Uttam K. Lepcha). Thanks Ade for the info about up-loading it.
