Well, I got a few more in so that makes me feel better but there is still time and trust me that anything that "you" consider breathtaking is good to go.

Get it in here!
I'm an old film guy just playing catchup in this digital world. Help me out.

To be fair, it's actually hard to capture breathtaking in a photo. Breathtaking usually means something big, wide or impressive in some way, and that's often lost when you reduce it to a rectangle on a screen. I keep an old SD600 (superb old compact camera by the way) in my car, in case I see something important; here's an example. This sky was absolutely compelling - but the photo just doesn't convey the impressiveness of it all.

Anyway, glad you've got more entries, let's keep them coming.

(And yes, I've since cleaned my lens, LOL that's what happens in a car...)

Yeah I have to agree with you Andy... It's one of the contributory reasons as to why I don't really seen any(very very few) as 'breathtaking'...
You are young. Life has been kind to you. You will learn.

Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?

Never stop photographing. It is very likely that your best photograph has not yet been captured
