Looking East about 8:00 am the Sun was peaking through the clouds drawing the Vapors from the Earth preparing for a good shower of rain. Sure enough, it rained about one hour later. Just love the workings of the Lord. Have a nice day and thank you for allowing me to enter this contest.

For my Story - My Sister adopted a child that we thought was my Brothers . I at the time had a huge round wicker chair with a black insert in my house . I babysat for my new 3 month old niece , slid the chair back so that she couldn't wiggle out of it . I covered her with a fleece blanket that had hearts on it . She looked like a little white Speck in a big black chair - the photo was too cute to pass up . Unfortunately - I don't have the picture.

Hello everyone,
Lately I was photographing my 6 years kid on a dance contest, and by mistake I forgot to change my settings and I photographed the judge who was a very nice black man from germany, and for my surprise the photo was way underexposed, and I ended with a silhouette picture of him because in the background was a board of a cloth store because the contest was in a mall!
From this great experience I learned that great pictures need to go beyond a correct exposure and need to show the mood and the moment itself and not only the subject, from that experience when I am photographing I try to think outside the box an try try to explore different ideas that may appear impossible or stupid sometimes :)

Thanks and have fun making pictures

I had been into B&W photography for many years when I was invited to study with Ansel Adams in Yosemite. Working in the darkroom with him was a great learning experience on how to get the most out of a negative. As a result I entered into many international competitions wining many awards. The one that was most successful was my Williamsburg Window that was taken inside an antique shop through a window and exposed per Ansel's mantra of expose for the shadows and develop for the highlights. The resulting contrast took considerable effort to get a decent print, quite different than now when doing it digitally.

My fave would have to be in June, 2008, when I took early retirement from a fortune 100 company to persue my  passion of photography full time .  I moved to a new town and started a studio.  Born again!!!! My camera is never away from my side and we have made beautiful music together. My 5DMklll would love to have this memory card.

This remains, to this day, one of my favourite shots and makes me laugh every time I see it. Titled “Forever Young”.

This sounds like it must have been a blast to photograph and one of those stories that always comes up with a punch in the gut laugh!

I've always been a fan of B&W's.  As much as it sounds cliche, it has such a classic nostalgic feeling to them.  Well deserved recognition on this shot, it's a winner!

Being a fairly new first time dad, I can appreciate this story.  No joke, I have over 12,000 photos on my iPhone of my son in the last 28 months, this doesn't include photos taken with my Nikon or Sony of him either!

Well the sky's blessed you with an amazing photo opportunity Tim.   I miss the afternoon rain from the East coast (not sure where you are at).  Here in California... we very rarely get rain!  So hardly ever clouds!  :(

I love how photography has done more to me than just snapping still images. Photography has taught me about life. How dreams can become experiences. How a single image can give you so much feeling. Photography isn't about skill, its about seeing the world as you see it, and expressing it through your lens. Photography has taken me so many places, and also let me experience them many times over again. The power of imagery is limitless and I couldn't be happier with having nothing but the clothes on my back, and a camera on my neck.
