Picture This!
Color Me Red

We're seeing red. We received so many great entries for this month's Picture This! assignment that we have red images everywhere--on our desks and picture wall. Clearly red holds a great deal of attraction for photographers, and we received lots of images of nature, painted buildings and signs, uniforms, fire engines, cars, birds, and more. Honing down to our customary 10 shots was a difficult assignment for us, and we thank all our readers for their wonderful images and great response.

Sunday In Seville

Ann E. Clark made this shot at an outdoor café in Seville, Spain. The play of light and shadow caught her eye, and she exposed at f/5.6 at 1/500 sec with a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100, which she told us is her constant companion on her travels.
