    Numerous heads and limbs chopped off, my lens just wasn't wide enough :p

    Nice shot and lots of people -even bits of people. I like the shot but it sure gives the word "Cropped" a whole-new meaning.

    Yeah, I know Andy. Not much time this month, so I thought something is better than nothing at all ;)

    This certainly is better than nothing :) I quite like it. May I ask what was the occasion?

    My opening remark was somewhat sarcastic Miranda. This was shot at the sea-lion show at Whipsnade Zoo...and a heavy crop as already pointed out :laugh:

    I felt I had to enter something this month. I've had some fab ideas for this months' theme, but I simply won't have the time to execute any of them :(

    Definitely on theme Darren and there's definitely something about it that catches the eye :)

    It sums up the theme perfectly, however it's not really for me this one I'm afraid :(

    Cheers guys. It's really just a snapshot due to lack of time this month.

    On your own admission Darren ,quite a rush shot and not one of your best technically ,but it's pretty quirky and different which makes you look at at twice,which in my opinion makes it a good entry :smashin:....Ps i can spot at least three people not smiling ,maybe you could have your comp on the pic ,spotting how many people are not smiling

    Bit of a Marmite one this Darren. Fortunately I like the stuff. :smashin: A difficult shot to nail without clipping something or someone. There's plenty going on in the shot to overcome the framing.

    The aspect ratio works well, it's a bit like a dysfunctional school photo. ;)
