I took this today, November 11, 2008. We were in the mountains to see the leaves changing, and found this amazing place. It was so beautiful, no words or camera can capture it. I was using my little toss around Canon PowerShot A510.

I just tried to fix your posts into embedded images, but you need different flickr links I think... people comment more if they can see your images directly.

Log into flickr and look for their url for embedding

This was taken with my 40D at Dundas Square in Toronto, Ontario.
It is actually 6 images put together. If you divide the picture in half horizontally each half has 3 exposures. One for the highlight, one for the shadow and one for the midtones. For each half I combined the 3 exposures and then flattened the image and ran the 2 halfs through Photoshop's Photomerge.

I will add mine but beware it sucks.

My really camera is dead (I wouldn't have had it even if it wasn't) so I used my iPhone for this one. It is the only photo I have taken this month. It is pretty bad but I wanted to take part.

This is a shot from my office of a fire in central Tokyo. Apparently, there was an explosion at a firework factory that didn't have a permit. Maybe this months worst.

Dang, what a view! Is there a story behind the fire there?

That was with an old crappy Minolta 28-75mm kit lens (that desperately needs to be replaced). The Minolta and Sony products use the same lens mounts.
