It might help a bit Jen if you're gallery images weren't so small - maybe consider uploading at 1200 (or more px) instead of 800px on the long side?

Notwithstanding that, yep I can see the camera on the tripod ;)

I have an idea this week but it's a bit elaborate and as usual I have no time.  We shall see.  Nice topic anyway H.

I haven't forgot about entering this, still coming up with a shot. Working all weekend but that won't deter me. Hopefully get something in over the weekend.

Mine will have to come from my daughters wedding - I`m sure there`ll be plenty of cameras there. Does and Ipad count as a camera if people are taking photos with it as I am sure there will be one or two of them around spoiling the official shots!

Interesting DD.

An iPad is to a camera as a car is to an armchair . . .

This is a photography forum not a DSLR forum. There's nothing anywhere in the rules that specifies  what equipment you can and can't use. Its a competition and we want to attract as many entries as wecan, not put people off. I personally would only use my DSLR for any images I post here but that's my choice.

Does anyone else think an iPad shouldn't be used on here? An interesting debate Hinfrance.

Such a debate was started a couple of weeks ago, but obviously didn't excite many people and it fizzled out quite quickly, as usual.  :doh:

Yes, a similar debate however, this specifically relates to here and the weekly comp which doesn't attract many sadly.

This is not about whether or not you can take photographs with a phone or a tablet. Entries taken with these appliances are not ruled out, as far as I am aware. And I'm sure, we have had entries taken on a mobile phone.

In this case however, the brief states that the image must have a recognisable camera in the frame. Phones and iPads are not cameras; if they were, Jinky would not have had to ask the question.

Perhaps the briefs are not exciting or challenging enough . Who would have thought 'Fading light ' would be won by a sunset!

No-one has mentioned Scanners, after all decent images can be created using a scanner (flowers etc).
