Kramer was pouting because it wasn't dinner time yet, so I snapped this picture. Flash bounced off of the wall to my right.

iWhat, you may want to edit the original post, as you accidentally posted up the instructions for the "Desktop" thread.

Placed the flower behind the dew drop, had to stack 4 images in photoshop to get more depth of field.

Ok, I'll give it a shot - never submitted a photo here before.

This was a 6am sunrise shot in Egypt last year (I'm going back in November!)
Hope you like it, it's been my desktop ever since - makes you feel warm.

Thanks! It's definitely an adventure having a Basset.

So I just realized I took this shot on May 31st, my apologies. I'm assuming this breaks the "Photo of the Month" rules, so can a mod please remove it?

Do you guys like spiders?

I took a pic of this little guy a few weeks ago with my Samsung Digimax S600.
He's about the size of your thumb. :)

Nice view vader33, different perspective seen through the trees

Now I know it's not a good quality photo, being as I only had a 3mp phone camera with me, but the pic below shows two different coloured roses growing on the same stem - how can this be?

Shot of Chico State, my hometown college. The building is Kendall Hall, the administration building in the center of campus—some of the architecture on campus is gorgeous, I've always loved it. :)
