I am a photography student at Point Park University in Pittsburgh and when I saw the shooting challenge for this week I ran down to our processing room and took a photo of this guy! I didn't really have any special techniques. I used my Nikon D40x on its auto setting. -Madeline McKain

This shot was taken in a stairwell at DePaul University in Chicago. I took these stairs for nearly a month before finally realizing it, I couldn't help but laugh. Submitted it for an assignment in my photography class and got an A. Shot specs: Canon EOS Rebel XT; Canon EFS 18-55; F/4.0; Exp 1/10; ISO 100. Minor color correction in photoshop. Unfortunately I think thats the only size of it I have. I'll keep looking for the RAW file, but thats all I have to send in for now. -Michael Salisbury

I took the attached photograph at the Botanical Gardens, on the Big Island, Hawaii, on August 19, 2009 using my Canon EOS 30D with a 100mm f/2.8 macro lens USM set at f/4.5, 1/80, ISO 400, handheld, but with a Joby Gorrilapod wrapped around my arm and braced against my chest. It is the tip of a fern of some type, and to me looks like a little, grizzled up, old man with his dukes up ready to go all fisticuffs on some young whipper-snapper. I did not do any post correction, because I like the deeper colors and darker shadows. This image is licensed creative commons BY-NC-ND. Since it is portrait, it doesn't readily fit the image dimensions, so I have left it portrait and anyone is free to resize or crop it to fit their desired dimensions - or use on a portrait style monitor! - Maztec

I took this picture in the park, midday i think it was. My technique was simple, click and shabam. My equipment was my Lg Xenon 2.0 mega pixel camera on its basic settings. Due to the size of the image my phone resized it in order to send. Sorry. Since its not big enough for wallpaper you could always click "Tile". - Adriana D.

I got a new wireless keyboard, and noticed that it has a little smile at the top. The other day, I happened to have some debris from a recent disk upgrade (a pair of 1TB SATA drives to go with my new motherboard) scattered across my workspace, when I noticed that it made just what you said, a 'face' of sorts to go with the smile on my new keyboard. I grinned, then cleaned it all up and didn't think more about it till I read your blog this week. I hope it's not cheating if I went and found the useless CDs that came with my new drives, and set them back up approximately where they had been last week. I added the pens, but the USB stick was there from the install... OK, I moved it 4" to the right to make it all match up. -Brian Rawlings

Taken with a Nikon Coolpix L18. This is the first time I send I picture for this kind of challenges. I really wasn't thinking of sending any sort of picture since I usually feel like this is more of a challenge for the people with better cameras, but after seeing the ''face'' on this airplane I realized that by reading about this new shooting challenge I became a little more aware of seeing things where there weren't meant to be. So thank you for awakening in me a more creative way of seeing things. -Arturo Bravo

Ok i know this isn´t really Anthropomorphism, since it doesn´t make something human. ...more like giant alien bug. Anyway. The bug´s head is a well used painter mask, while the bug´s body is the mask´s shadow, thrown by sunlight. Just a little photoshop was done to adjust the lightning since i had to shoot this with a no-name compact camera from my workplace. -Roland Renne

I first took a picture of this little guy on my iPhone for my facebook friends to enjoy, but for the contest I retook the picture on a Canon G7. I took it on automatic settings around sunset so the shutter was a little slow, but the the light and colors in the metal caught my eye at the time. Happy door lock is happy! -Ryan McLeod

I took all of these with my Blackberry Tour camera at max settings, so I was unable to get that maximum resolution that you wanted for wallpapers. All of these images were made with just proper angling, in some cases, no manipulation was needed. -Patrick Aghajanian

Curse you Gizmodo. I see faces every where I go! When I close my eyes I see faces. However it was fun. Here are my best examples. Except for the wrapping paper face with the frown, I just took what I saw and took a picture with little or no modification. Some photos were taken with Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ-5. I used the macro setting on what I think is the best which is the half wrapped present a (window thermometer for my dad). I used auto white balance on all these pictures. There are two from the iPhone 3Gs because the best camera is the one you have with you. One from Joe's Crab Shack (coconut shrimp). The other is me sitting in a waiting room and happen to rest my sun lenses on my jeans. -Harry Tajchman

Shot hand-held, under fluorescent lighting, with Canon 7D and EF 50 f/1.4. ISO1600, f/1.6, 1/125. Very little post processing was done in Aperture 2: WB correction, exposure, levels, contrast, saturation, definition and vignette. Then some noise reduction was applied. -Russ Khabal
