    Carbon is a Girl's Best Friend



    (These need a good cleaning… I had to take these out of her ears for the shot.)

    I more or less hate this shot, but if not for this, no submission this week.

    Only through herculean effort did I not crop, color-correct, or otherwise fiddle with this in post-processing. Thank goodness for my deeply ingrained sense of integrity, which almost makes up for my absolute inability to photograph an "element."



    There are some really imaginative and well-executed efforts this week. I applaud you all.

    I didn't think I'd have anything to post, but I was working on my brother's home stereo with
    the complaint "I turned it on and it started smoking". It's only 6 years old, it's too young to smoke

    I quickly found the problem and thought it might be a nice entry. It was an interesting
    exercise and I got to deploy my new Sunpak flash, and wireless shutter release for my Canon 10D.
    I did resize these images as the originals were 2+MB in size each. They were only resized.

    This was tricky to catch and I had it autofocus mode unfortunately (focus is apparently on
    my finger not the center). This is the only shot that came out because the transistor causing
    the problem (60V DC on the speaker output) baked and it didn't spark again:



    The offending transistor, clearly toast (it's smoke element was released):

    Judge this if you like, however hands up, I took it two weeks ago when I did the stone with the shadow pick. This weekend I've been drugged up on Vicodin, so have been a bit wobbly and certainly too unstable to take pics, or go out.

    We do have a Honda Element, so I'd have gone that way probably.
    Still, my submission was taken for a BMWMOA photo assignment.

    Ca. elemental.

    RTRandy, it may only be a fortuitous accident, but I like how the powerlines in your shot help give depth of field to the plane; it conveys "air" to me in three dimensions, even though it's a flat photo.
