Thank you very much guys! Really appreciated, kinda hoped it might just slip past LOL!

I love black and white photos - what camera etc. did you use?

I also love B&W - but since the invent of digital haven't been "going there". So this is a colour pic taken with my little trusty compact - it's a Canon SX200IS - great compact camera with loads of functions and a lot of fun.

 

Then used my favourite freeware PhotoScape to change to grayscale, and tweak the contrast a tad.

 

One day I will own a digital SLR but - until I no longer have to be able to drop my camera into a bag at short notice to stop a three-year old from drowning or what not - the compact will have to do. It has a 20x optical lens and gives a reasonable macro shot too. So one can take a landscape and turn in a jiffy to take a close-up of a bee or whatever without having to change lenses. Love it!

I won a camera by Samsung via Facebook a few weeks back and entered the competition too. With this little baby I can go 90x zoom and it's awesome. Tons of features and I am still learning.

Congrats on the competition! Awesome! Also - lekker camera, I suspect that the 90x is your digital zoom - which is wonderful but you will find that it gets pretty grainy after it goes beyond optical zoom range (usually 20x or 30x). Yours is better than mine wayjen - mine only goes up to an 80x digital zoom - which I don't use much. Enjoy using it - photography is a COMPLETE jorl - have a look at the outdoorphoto website - there is a forum there which allows you to post two photos a day and the other forumers comment on them - usually very constuctive criticism. I have learned SO much from them! And it is FREE! LOL!

Warmest congratulations, Lee. Your photography is excellent and you should have won a million rands!

Thank you VERY much Terry! Greatly appreciated. Must say that the prize is not really the issue (although a million rands...), it is just a lot of fun to enter and bite nails until the results come out, first the top ten and then the winners. Yeeeeehah! Was seriously chuffed because I didn't think I would win.

Thanks WPCPlod, I often enter competitions because you never know where you luck lies. I have won a few and had an honourable mention too on some that I have not come anywhere but it's all in good fun.

 

You should see some of the junk ( I mean art) I have posted for competitions.

ha ha ha ha I can zoom up on my hairy mole if you like. I will have to find if I still have the pictures on my pc which I doubt. I posted mine on the other forum anyway and made a few video's too.

 

Let me load one I just did in last week or this week quick.
