    A rather weak effort after looking at the two most recent efforts... but don't have enough time or inspiration this month to do anything more.

    [​IMG]

    Exif:

    Canon 400D
    Aperture Priority Mode
    Shutter Speed: 4 Secs
    Aperture: F9
    ISO: 100
    Focal Length: 50mm

    Orginal image was in RAW. Converted to a JPEG once the exposure had been increased. Picture was cropped, border added and colour balance adjusted.

    I quite like this - nice and simple and clean. Good entry!

    I would have been tempted to remove the strap mind you, and also to mirror the shot in PP so that the writing on the camera and lens was the right way round.

    Good try m8y.....

    Think there would have been a better chance for a vote if you had used a NIKON camera instead :devil:

    Thanks for the feedback. :smashin:

    I removed the strap an didn't like it for some reason. Also wanted to keep the mirror image so that it was obvious what I'd done.

    Cheers.

    You mean a Nokin camera??

    Nice entry chrisw, and I think it does work better in the current orientation.

    I wondered how long before we saw something like this...Like the Dof and leaving the image in its reflective state seems to help you focus on the lens.

    agree with the strap comment though.

    nice idea:thumbsup:

    Nice idea. I wonder how many people were thinking hard on what to take and didn't even think about the fact that there lenses are round.

    I tried it without the strap and it looked odd... not too sure why, maybe it's because that's how I see my camera. I think if the body had a battery grip on or similar it would look ok, but I just didn't like the result without.

    Thanks for feedback so far all.

    First time I've looked at this in a couple of weeks... wish I'd posted one with the strap taken off now...

    I like the strap - it gives some width to the image and the fabric contrasts nicely with the solid camera.
