The photo needs to be taken in the month covered in the thread title.
The photo cannot be larger than 800x600.

Camera: Creative PC-Cam 750 (web cam)
Date: Thursday Feb. 8, 2007
Location: My office

Yesterday there was a crane outside my office window. The air conditioning compressor to our server room died a week or so ago, and it needs to be replaced. The compressor is on the roof of our building, so they needed to put a new one up there for installation this weekend. Until then, we have large fans at the two doors to the server room, making a kind of wind tunnel to keep the machines cool.

The contrast is a bit whimsical. You might notice a little snow in the picture (and salt in the parking lot). Yesterday the temperature ranged from around 10 to 30F (roughly -10 to 0C). This building is 5 years old. There's something wrong about needing to use air conditioning in the winter.

I have a light-hearted, yet serious question. Why is it that the "What have you created this month?" thread allows people to post two images, but we photographers only get one? Why are the photographers getting cheated? :bomb: :black:

Not sure, I'd like to do another myself. I simply copied over the rules from before.

I'm sure you could post a photo you created in the "What have you created this month?" thread...

EDIT: Just had a look and no, you can't:


Please remember this is not the Photo of the Month thread, so do not just post pictures here (they must at least be photoshopped to a degree).

heh. if the a/c went out in my server room it would melt everything in it including us, even in -10F weather. i should take a pic of our cooling towers! or the 16 or so chillers in our server room (the size of a couple minivans stacked upon one another) ;)

i still haven't posted a pic, so, maybe...

I have to agree ... this month I've had a day taking pictures of raptors; today we're going to a Ferrari festival; and at the end of the month I'm spending three days taking pictures at an IDPA championship. Too many to choose from!

I look at it as there are now three opportunities to show a photo...one in this thread and two in the "What I have created" thread. Thats just my own interpretation of it.

Well, I have a Wii, which is going perfectly for me. Twilight Princess the 2nd time through is just as great. But release dates for Aus Wii games (which are already out is the US!!) are SO far away... and I can't access VC games til they decide to release the Wii point cards.

Yes, you can post two more images there...you simply need to do something to the images or look at it a bit differently. Did you take a series of two or three shots that go together in a series? If so, put them together in a little frame and post them there...that is something you created using your images. I posted a photograph last month of a Hawk eating a Cardinal, after placing it in a frame with a title.

That's a fantastic pic. When you view it at full resolution, is it you (the photographer) that is reflecting in the horse's eye? I've had that problem taking similar type pics in the past.

Well... we're only supposed to be post one picture so, here's one of a series of photos I took of a sunset.

Yes.. I know it's blurry. First, I don't have a tripod :( ... but, I don't mind the blurriness and gives a certain feel to it. The photo as well as the ones linked to are untouched and straight from the camera.

ps: that's a star... not a spec on my lens.
