I would like to nominate joemcbroom.com's Landing Gear Down and Full Flaps.
The timing to take this image is fantastic. Great focus and exposure.

Everything about this keeps me coming back to look at it - the colors, the perspective, the OOF areas - just a beautiful capture!


D700, D300; D200; F2, Lumix FZ30; and a bunch of Nikon MF & AF glass (& a Rokinon 85mm f1.4)

The image is interesting because it blends the graffiti with the environment in away that makes them more of unity instead of just having an image of a graffiti.

sRGB clipping sucks and Adobe RGB is just as bad  Still no clue how to take decent pictures though, see afximages.com ;-(

I fell for Luc's RB. His eye for the abstract is very good... and the lines of this beautiful automobile are so sensual.

First seen here.

The colour is simply perfect - that pale pale blue is my favorite.

One from Antoinette I find fascinating. Quite mysterious with beautiful springtime colours.

I second the choices of several of the superb photographs which have already been nominated and would also like to nominate Joe McBrooms delightful "Very Young Royal Tern".

I know from experience just how difficult this particular species is to photograph and Joe succeeded supremely well with this shot:
