This is a watercow (Suigyu) i just saw yesterday in Okinawa. I was about 10 cm from its nose.

Sony A850 - Minolta 20mm ISO200 F9 - 1/200

Let me know if qualifies.
Thanks

Ben

I'm not one to grade these assignments but always glad to see more members from my neck of the woods. Welcome to Dyxum!

Hi there,

Cheers, good to be welcomed here...
If you're around the Tokyo area, we should meet up one day.

Meanwhile, I am eagerly awaiting the evaluation of the Suigyu :)

Cheers,
Ben

bence8810, a pass with flying colours. The combination of the closeness and WA gave a nice subject and perspective. You're just lucky the cow didn't sneeze

I'm afraid of heights. So in order for me to take this picture I extended my arm and flipped the screen up, just couldn't make that last step and look down. You can see the climber down at the bottom of the cliff

@Obelix: That would be difficult for me, too. You have your pass to your next assignment.

Cheers... Brian

This was as close as I could get without dropping the A99 into water:



A99, Minolta 50/1.4, F4, ISO200
A99, NEX-5, HVL-F43M, more than enough glass (A, E, M42, MD), Photo Ninja

May I ask for a rating of this image? It was on hold due to multiple submissions, but now is the last one pending.

Sorry Mike, forgot all about that one.

It's a pass for getting closer, but pointed slightly higher (or a slight wider angle) would not have cut off the head of the water phantom and made a slightly nicer picture (imho)

Yes, it's cut off - I don't like that myself. I might re-take the shot in portrait mode or use a wider lens.
