    I decided to get an early entry in this month. I probably won't have much time to go shooting later on, and I took this today, so here goes nothing.
    Some added contrast, some very little blur to the edges and tiny bit of saturation. No cropping, framing as it was shot.

    EXIF here

    Please view on black in Flickr if you like

    Good luck all and I'm looking forward to what people shoot this month :)

    I had to edit the post once, because my 'view on black' link didn't work the first time, I made that for the EXIF info, too, by accident. Should work now though.

    I like the strong colours too and I'm intrigued to know what was going on around the other side.

    Thanks guys :) Unfortunately photography wasn't allowed inside the circus at all, so no animals or clowns to show for it :)

    Nice shot Miranda. Like the way you have caught the reflection.

    Very strong colours, excellent exposure on the light and superb shadows. Ticking all the boxes there for me :)

    Oh I like that a lot, the play with the light, the bold strong colours together with the shadows, the composition which is tight yet so recognisable that any can guess what scene this is from...

    Definitely works for me..

    Haha, I'm usually very very strict with my photos, that they are straight! Didn't pay any attention to this :laugh: Yeah, it does lean a bit to the right, but hopefully that doesn't ruin it all together :)

    Thank you very much for all your encouraging comments! :love:

    No I don't feel it spoils the picture at all. The shot oozes so much charm it would be difficult to detract from that. :)

    I agree, I bet it was just an Elephant footprint the trailer stood in and thus it is 'straight' :D

    Lovely shot Miranda, the dark blacks and bold colours work really well and you've certainly got light and shadows - good one :smashin:

    Liked this as soon as I saw it - it's got a certain 'feel' to it that I love
