  • Submitted a challenge entry Eggsplosion!
    Taken in a modified cardboard box on the table in my pitch black living room. The eggs were lit by one flash gun from above that was connected to a sound trigger. The inside of the box was painted white to reflect the light from the flash all around the eggs.

  • Submitted a challenge entry Me and my family.
    There is nothing more special to me than my family :-) .

This photo was inspired by the 'Queen II' album cover :- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen_II 
My family and I (Freddie) had fun recreating it, but I'd like to point out that none of us are looking our best in this photo ;-) .

  • Submitted a challenge entry Soft as the hairs on a Bumblebee's back
    This bumble bee was having a break from looking for nectar in my wife's herb patch. I'm afraid I have no idea which herb it is though. Can anyone identify it please?

  • Submitted a challenge entry Blue Building
    This is known locally as ‘The Wave’ building. It is in Cardiff Bay in South Wales.
A series of six, 120 metre, silver mesh fabric, scalloped PVC facades span the width of the building. 
These are lit at night by a changing combination of 472 blue and 472 white strip lights creating a rippling light show along the fabric. At least thats how it's supposed to work. 

When I went to photograph the building all the lights were off so it looked dull silver. I eventually managed to find the man in charge and he explained that the control system for the lighting effects had broken. They are no longer switched on as they would have to be lit constantly and it would cost too much to run all night. 

When I told him I was hoping my photo of his building would be in an international competition, he very kindly switched them all on for me for 10 minutes :-). Thank you very much!
