    Hiya guys, though i'd have a crack at this month by entering some photos I took whilst on holiday in Egypt.

    I'm only shooting with a 6mp Fujifilm Finepix S602Z but in decent lighting conditions it can shoot some half decent pictures.

    First one is a boat that was sunk just off the shore & had turned into a coral hot-spot.


    EXIF Data is below:


    My second one is a picture taken at the airport on the way home, it's my girlfriends eye. :p

    Obviously i've edited the colours on this to make the center of the eye stand out more, hope you allow this sort of thing. :)


    and the EXIF data is:

    Hey Marcus, Seems like there are a lot of WCUKer's entering the POTM this month!
    (You probably don't know me, I'm more of a lurker over there :worried: )

    Editing your photo's is allowed (to a degree), you can find out the basics of what's allowed in the rules thread, and if there is anything else you want to know, I'm sure the regular POTM posters will be able to help you out :)

    C&C on the pics:

    It feels like you've cropped too tightly on the boat, the poles chopped off on the left and top is feels distracting to me. Try a crop with some more space round the edges.
    (Personally I think it looked better when you could see it stood in the sea, though crop it down just a bit to get rid of the bit of your boat on the original and to make the wreck fill the frame more)

    The eye shot is nice, but I'm struggling to make the connection with this months theme :lol:

    Hi there Marcus000! Welcome aboard (no pun intended with regards to your 1st pic ;) )-
    It's always good to see more contenders :)

    Note that POTM shots must be taken within the month of the theme.
