Here we are again, a new month without an assignment.

My suggestion: Over-exposed - we always work so hard to keep our exposure perfect and we did an intentionally under-exposed challenge so let's try the other side of the spectrum and intentionally over-expose an image to tell the story.

How about "Transportation" for Level 1

I like overexposed as level 2 assignment and transportation for level 1.

any other suggestions?
Thx for starting this off Iggy and AT - Marko

As the young'uns say, "I'm down wit' dat" ;) hehehehe

Seeing as I do computer support for Mississauga Transit, 'Transportation' for Level 1 would work out well for me.

Seeing that I overexpose most photos..i'm down with that.. :P

sold. The regular assignment is Transportation and the level 2 assignment is Intentional overexposure (http://www.photography.ca/Forums/f34/february-2012-intentional-over-exposure-17218.html).

I guess I will start since it is my idea for the topic.

This is a semi-macro 1:64 Hot Wheels drag race funny car

I converted to BW because I thought it looked meaner

I went back and decided to post in color as well

OK, one more and than I promise to quit.

Here I used my macro filters, so I did not have to enlarge as much, but it shows the flaws in the toy more

I've never had the pleasure of travelling in a helicopter, but I'm sure it counts as transport. I snapped this walking out to my car this afternoon, and thought immediately of the assignment. OK it is a little abstract, but it was the kind of image I was thinking of when I took the shot.

I did not plan the title because there was a car show in Baton Rouge today, I stumbled across it. I got some great shots but Ithink this is the best

Love that last shot, asnow. The red bus on the otherwise grey background is very cool.

I'd take a photo of a bus but since we are in the middle of a Transit Strike I couldn't find any! :) In any event, lots of passenger vehicles on the road...

Hey cool bus capture Allan. Say is that bus running a red light ? - jimmy

asnow

Thanks Jimmy. This is on Queens Quay in Toronto. By the way it is not a bus, but rather a streetcar (on rails). It is a screwey intersection. He is actually going from left to right right in the picture and has a different signal from the one you can see.

We should be using more of these streetcars Allan. A great way to cut pollution. Like going back in the past - jimmy

Wow! Those feet are huge!

Borrowed my son's size 14s for the shot. I think the perspective makes them look bigger though. Thanks Iggy

Size 14! Yeah, that's big any way you look at it :)

What I didn't say, but should have, is: Excellent shot. I do like the perspective.

And as the Transit strike continues in Halifax one of the best modes of transportation is pedal power...

Thanks again Iggy. Great panning in the bike shot. It is cool that the shadow is sharp against the blurred background as well.

Nice panning shot Iggy,

Love the variety of transportation modes.
Richard - teleporter - very creative
Runmonty - really like the perspective and wow those are big feet.
Iggy - good panning job. Transit strike - hang in there, our transit stike in York Region lasted 3 months.

Iguanasan, I love your bike shot.

Asnow, the lines of your commuter train have a really nice effect.

Cool Picture Marko.

Here's another one of Toronto's Red Rocket. Two modes of transportation - streetcar and bicycle.

Very cool photos everyone! But boy that old Mercedes on the cobblestones, the sun, the coppertones, the painted stucco, the vase; it's just full of awesome. Just love that Barefoot.
