Commuters disembark from crowded suburban trains during the morning rush hour at Churchgate railway station on World Population Day in Mumbai July 11, 2012. By using a slow shutter speed the people rushing through the station are blurred giving the reader a feeling for the hustle and bustle.

Yasmin Rioux floats along Catfish Creek on a standup paddle board in the Mines of Spain Recreation Area south of Dubuque, Iowa. The wake brings the readers eye straight to the subject and composing this way gives the feeling that the paddle board is moving through the frame.

Jessica Frank, left, and her twin sister Arianwyn Frank, stand beside a Budweiser Clydesdale horse for a photo in Belton, Mo.. The Clydesdales were at various locations around Kansas City, Mo., throughout the weekend during festivities for the All-Star baseball game scheduled for July 10 at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. By just shooting the legs of the girls and horse the photographer has captured a very funny image. Try looking for things that play off each other to create some humour in your photography.

A reveler drinks wine during the 'Chupinazo', the official opening of the 2012 San Fermin fiestas, in Pamplona, Spain. Revelers from around the world kick off the San Fermin festival with a messy party in the Pamplona town square, one day before the first of eight days of the running of the bulls. This is a great angle to show just how tightly packed in the people can be. When shooting crowds try getting up high.

Photo was taken at my cottage. I love the peace and tranquility of going for a morning paddle. I used an 8-15mm fish eye lens and put it on a timer to shoot every 15 seconds. Put my tripod in the front of the Canoe, and away I went. Very creative way to shoot a self portrait. The image also gives us some insight into the photographer.
