Here is one image I find very original, simply because I have never thought of this concept myself before and therefore I suppose never seen this type before.

it's not original to me John - for the same reasons as yours really, i've seen lots of mountain shots like this and they are pretty breath taking, but reasonably similar.
This is definitely a tricker thread to find photos for than the Cliche Amnesty Thread
here's one I think was pretty original - 2 moden dance students doing some stuff for their finals, they got me along to photograph them doing their act. this wasn't part of it, the girl was putting the blind fold on the lad and I caught the moment.
I've never seen anything like this before really - blind folds, grey/black coats etc. Almost like a holocaust scene in a way.
Wonder if my elephants eye tryptich counts as original ?
altho Origenality is very difficult to achive in the modern world of the internet where every image can be compared with something simular, when a member puts something totally different in a camera club that no one has seen. before...Is that origenal, To a degree yes..the pair of jean in the landscape comp recently, The picture of a pair of jeans isnt origenal, but used in the landscape comp took on a new meaning and much more origenal.
I photograph Big living history events, what am copying the past or the present. the event im taking the picture of is happening and is origenal as photography was not around during some periods I cover.
So define what is origenal
this was quite an interesting question Pete, I just spent some time going back through my portfolio, and could only find a handful of shots that I thought were original. Some food for thought there.....
this is a shadow my daughter spotted in Chester, and it looks like a dragon.
this was from last years visit by the giant spider, La Machine.
the geometry in this was what caught my eye.
I think this speaks for itself, ha ha
So what do you think, are these original?
Good selection there - though I've seen the "photo of the back of someones camera" shot before Anthony. It's good at weddings
the pigeons shot is very cool and that dragon shot is bizzare - a bt like spotting shapes in clouds.
ok - here's a very familiar, almost cliche, location but taken from and angle I've not seen before - original or just another shot?
here is the link of my pf as a submission, except a few general shots...

Well for me Kev it is anything I see that appeals and resonates with my tastes but I haven't thought of the idea or concept of before, as in the car wash picture above. The concept or idea is new to me, I like it for it's story, humour and aesthetics so it is original to me.
@ Ade, no for me this isn't original, as mentioned above, I have seen the idea and concept of many images of buildings from differing angles, this one may be from an unusual angle and one that I won't have seen before but the idea is the same as many before.
Maybe thats where I got it from them, lol.
The dragon shadow, was completely genuine too. She just said to me, look dad, a dragon. And she was so right. The pigeon was luck, they were in and out of the bars every few seconds, I jsut waited.
Originality is something I constantly strive for but cant always achieve. A couple of personal favourites of mine though are here
But they are all digital manipulations and not once off original shots, if you know what I mean.
Ok lets try that againHere
mmmm - shall have to take a look through my pics this evening and see if I can find something original - there must be something in there.
As for the heel/lemon combo - I did do a heel/cream doughnut combination once - it's buried someone on the ext. hard drive now.
i strive for originality in my creative visuals - i take 2 approaches - create a visual i have never seen done that comes directly from my mind (usually more artistic than standard photograph) or i do a popular subject but entirely in my own way rather than just being another page coming out of a photocopier doing nothing different at all from the clone source. i would say i havn't seen other photographs on epz galleries like my own but i won't because i don't want to appear smug or vane

By my own definition of what I think constitutes originality for me, I will not be able to create anything original in my own eyes. I could however possibly create something original in other's eyes.
Originality is in the eye of the beholder then...
OK I'll bite, see if you can find images similar ..
