Our Take on Your Take
Our picks of your pics
When Cyclone Phet hit Oman, pictures coming out of the region were minimal. Because we don’t often see pictures from Oman, I was pleasantly surprised to see this Your View submission from Roman Garba. The image captures a street scene but also large waves – one of the effects of the cyclone.
When a dust storm blanketed Sydney this week it provided good fodder for photographers. Everyone from Reuters photographer Tim Wimborne to Your View contributor Joshua Kerr captured the city coated in a red mist. The Boston Globe Big Picture blog even allows you to click on Tim’s pictures to see the city go from red to clear.
As snow covered London, Your View contributors showed us how it looked through their lenses. Graeme Williams used the ambient light to cast a blue hue over this snowy street scene. Graeme’s image was displayed in a slideshow of Your View pictures on the reuters.co.uk site this week.View this week’s Your View weekly slideshow here.
When Ron Mayland‘s aerial photograph of the flooding in Iowa was sent to You Witness last Friday, I was impressed with the quality and the access, especially as we had seen very few pictures from the affected areas from any of the wires. The picture and Ron’s contact details were passed along to our regional chief photographer, who negotiated an arrangement to secure this and additional images for use on the Reuters Pictures Wire service. Ron has continued to provide quality aerial images to Reuters throughout the week.
