Hey, for some strange reason I can't edit my previous post. Music, could you please delete my previous post.

It's probably not very hard to guess where this picture was taken.

Dont mean to be a pain Tojan, but your image is too big in size. It should be no more than 600x600. Your pic is 640x561.

Well, albeit, SB has correctly pointed out the problem. tojan -- should be a pretty easy correction. The entry itself is fine - just reduce the width to 600 pixels and that will take care of the height. If you can't let us know and one of us will help you.

Okies, thanks ATNO... new entry :)

This is a shot I almost died for. I just wanted a shot of him there like he was about to hit the ball... Well, I guess he didn't hear the "Don't really hit the ball" request as I was laying on the ground in front of him. He swung a lil quick & hard, scared the crap out of me, but I got the shot :D

Great shot Axe! Much more effect than the previous one. I can't believe he actually hit the ball though!

Sorry, for that. I've fixed it.
This picture ws very spontanic, and actually you can see that the picture is focused on the pidgeon and not on the "Razzle Dazzle".
I have to admit that NYC is a great place to take "power pictures".

Thanks Musik.

Except the blackout time :)
After submitting this picture, I've realized that this picture would be even better for "In motion" competition. Maybe this could be a good theme for another competition?

Hi there, you will need to upload your image onto a website and use the link to show the image. If you don't have hosting you can use http://tinypic.com/, then you simply paste the link they give you after you upload your image, into your message and people can click on it.

Hope that helps!

I was racking my brain trying to think what would make a good pic for this comp, when I remembered I already has this sitting on my hard-drive!

Anywho, my humble entry:

It's a nuclear power station btw.

Well, I can't count this as an entry and it really hurts my feelings because this competition wasn't announced until after I had this taken. If I had known, I would have done it myself. These are two cooling motors from nuclear power plants that most people will never get to see in their life. The one on the left is just in for decon, repair and refurb and the one on the right is done and just about ready to be shipped back.

Again, it's not an entry because I didn't personally take the picture but it would have been perfect. Just wanted to show it off because it's pretty cool.

My Entry was a choice of two selections from todays trip to Knockhil racing circuit. It was either going to be this sports car or the engine of a Lamborgini.

I decided it will be this one though...

Just think about the power on that! Imagine driving along a race track with that behind the drivers seat powering you at 150mph along the road (if you want to do that 8))
