Short note on PP: Two-shot pano in which the camera was moved a few feet along the fence's axis then cropped down to about a shot and half with the overlap.

Congratulations Snowboarder, and thank you briantho for handling this!

Camera body: Canon 5D
Lens: ZE 35/1.4
Aperture: f/5.6
Filters: Polarizer
Short note on PP: Started with a B&W preset in Lightroom, then added a slight blue and cream tone with Split Toning. Decreased clarity on the sky since the clouds made it too busy and distracting.

Nice shot Helena. I hung around there with my X10 several times but there never seemed to be anything very exciting happening.

Thank you! I too passed several times with nothing happening. Then one evening, just when I was about to give up and continue walking, they started to tear off some larger bits at the top. It's not nearly as dramatic as it looks in the photo (mostly lots of dust), but it's the result that counts.

Yeah, it looks like the whole thing is coming down. Great capture.

Short note on PP: This is actually a compo of two almost identical shots. The dandelion is from one, and my daughter's face from another. Reason is that she was out of focus in the shot where the dandelion was captured, so I had to puzzle it together.

I actually had the least productive month in a very long time in August, and had just two shots to choose from, neither particularly characteristic of my main work at this time, one of them an iPhone photo, and the other one a playful non-serious shot. This is the playful shot, which I ended up really liking.
