Well, it's my first time picking the photographs of the week... so be gentle with me!

Travel & Outdoor

I really liked this one by Richard P Schoettger - it is full of interest. It took me a while to decide that I liked the colour element in the frame, but in the end I decided it was a stronger image because of it mainly as it draws attention to the continuous repetition in the mirror.

Lucy Llewellyn Byard's "Dark-haired Beauty" was, I thought, a fantastic photograph. I like the overall effect of the high contrast treatment and felt that it enhanced the subject matter well.

I am going to have to give this one to Avi Hirschfield! I have been really enjoying his avian photographs of late!

Weekly Challenge - Shooting Mono

This photograph really just works for me on so many levels. It is a superb mono conversion, a superb architectural photograph and artistically just hangs together perfectly. Superb work by Richard P Schoettger (again!).

I am also going to give a special mention to  Rahul Dulta for his photograph "Sheep" as I was really rather taken by that photograph - it was a difficult choice as to which one I should pick between his and Richards.  In the end the Opera House won through, but I had to highlight this "runner up"

The Weekly Challenge was actually very strong this week throughout... you guys do know how to make life difficult don't you!

 Hi there, just rejoined TPN and have uploaded a couple of images to my Library, all courtesy of Lonely Planet Images and Alex Foley from Ireland. All travel shots of fun places to see. I am still working on how to delete duplicate images, so if anyone knows please let me know! thanks. On general travel talk and images, I have just launched in partnership with Lonelyplanet Images www.lonelyplanet.imagesandprints.com. It is meant to be a Tracel Image blog site, touching on various travel and world themes and colouring the discussion with wonderful and inspirational images from the Lonely Planet photographers. Come sometime and have a look and tell us what you think of our travel image blogs and what other topics you think we should cover etc.

I just uploaded this blog yesterday on Cadel Evans' wonderful Tour de France win. It shows a flavour of Paris and the cyclists from the Tour de France. What a great day for the oldest winner in 88 years! He looked so happy and proud under the Arc de Triumph yesterday with Tina Arena singing the Australian National Anthem.

Well Rob...Thanks a ton for the honor, especially with the Mono work.  I thought that was an extremely difficult group of images and there were so many high on my list.   Must be very difficult.  I also believe you need to keep your works out of the weeks you are moderating as what you have submitted is outstanding.  You bring a lot to the site and really look forward to seeing more of your images in the future.

Congrats to Avi and Lucy too....cream of the crop and I am an admirer of your works!
