Your pictures: My best photo
Each week, we publish a gallery of readers' pictures on a set theme. This week we asked for your pictures on the theme of "my best photo".
Ron Pantekoek: "This is a composite image consisting of 150 images to create the star-trails, one image for the truck 'moving' head and tail lights, and one for the foreground. All images were taken on the same night just outside the city limits of Bourke, NSW, Australia, and took several hours to make."
George Olney: "My best photo is still Buho, my toilet paper owl. He became part of my poster - Your Habits Destroy My Habitat. He helps me spread the word about the many benefits of using recycled tissue."
Lee Bates: "I took this on holiday in Puerto Banus in Spain. It was the Easter break and the weather was really bad with lots of rain, thunderstorms and cold in the blustery winds. However, one evening when the rain stopped, but the wind was still whipping the waves in, it was the perfect time to capture the way the sea was wrapping itself around the lighthouse with the setting sun in the background."
Herlene sent in this beautiful picture of a daisy; she said it offered a "fresh beginning".
Gordon Coy: "Two of my favourite photographs are the result of lugging a heavy Mamiya M645 medium-format camera, lenses and a tripod whilst trekking. This photograph was taken just after dawn from close to the summit of Jebel Shams (3,007m), looking east into the bowl of Wadi Sahtan."
Stephen Arrandale: "A Highland cow, taken on The Mull of Galloway. I was using my new 'toy', a Prime Lens, which meant getting very close to my subject - in fact, I was about a metre away. Fortunately, it wasn't bothered by my presence."
Jemma Lane: " A mirror ball shines a ray of light down on to Brian May at Leeds Arena."
Sara Bickley: "This photo is of a plasma ball on a long exposure."
Lois Wright: "Right place, right time! Lifted my small compact camera to take this shot in Gateshead and hit the button just at the right moment - could only hear the Red Arrows coming so couldn't frame shot beforehand."
Mike Finn: "My favourite oak tree heavily frosted on the crispest of winter days in Hallow, Worcestershire."
And finally a picture from India by Pradeep Kumar. The next theme is "arches" and the deadline for your entries is 14 June. If you would like to enter, send your pictures to email@example.com.
