Our Picture This! assignment for this month was Background Blur, creating a sense of dimension in the photograph by playing a sharp foreground subject off against a blurry, or unsharp background. Readers sent in a wide variety of subjects, from flowers to statues to birds and carnival rides, all using this time-honored technique. Many used telephoto lenses to enhance the shallow...

I count this image among my best not because of the "aha" I felt as I dashed across a busy Tucson, Arizona, street before the sun could move another inch. It was only after I had several shots stowed safely in my Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II that I realized what I had actually found.

The first aha was seeing those nine "wanderers in the desert" from...

Our Picture This! assignment this month was panoramas, and readers responded with a host of images made with panoramic cameras, cropped large format and a goodly number of stitched images, multiple shots made with film and digital cameras brought together with various software programs. It strikes us that the panoramic "genre" is back with more power and grace than...

I had been wandering through side streets of a rural Chinese village in the farmlands south of Beijing hoping to find interesting subject matter for documenting the contrast between the "old" and "new" China when I came upon what I initially thought was a deserted military compound. On further inspection, I noticed this multicolored wall painting depicting...

Telephoto lenses are great for bringing distant objects closer and giving you "tunnel vision" that isolates parts of your personal field of view. They also have an added benefit, a visual trick most commonly called the "stacking effect," where a series of subjects each distant from one another are brought in much closer visual contact. This compression of...

Judging from the amazing images we received from readers this month the art of the wall mural is alive and well and thriving in the US and abroad. The creativity of the artists, and the unique way in which the wall murals were photographed, is a great source of inspiration. We especially liked it when readers submitted images that included the context of the mural, or some ironic...

I often photograph at a nature preserve in Glenview, Illinois, called "The Grove." While testing a newly acquired Voigtländer Bessa-R with a 50mm Nokton lens, I came upon this scene and quickly moved into position. This was the only frame with this composition as the rooster was slowly walking across the scene.

Whenever I acquire these one-chance...
