Shooting Challenge: 7 Humorous Shots

I love the abstract nature of this week's shooting challenge theme. It invites a much wider range of responses than we'd get otherwise, and 'humour' is a perfect example. From childlike happiness to geeky sarcasm, these seven reader submissions are sure to get you at least smiling.

Canon EOS 7D - Canon 100mm f/2.8 | ISO 100 | 1/4 sec

My inspiration for this weeks challenge was a single cell cartoon I saw many years ago. Like my photo, it depicted a painter who really didn't plan out his paint job to well. For no particular reason it has stuck in my mind so I decided to try and recreate it.

Pete Turner

Canon 7D 10-22mm

All those credits Sam and Dave spent on the Photoshop course were starting to pay off!

Amy Akers

Canon EOS 450D with Canon EF-S 18-55mm lens using the inbuilt flash & auto settings.

I am due to move out of a crumbly old rental next week, which features a large crack in one of the walls. My friend suggested on the weekend that I draw a man walking down the cracks. Instead I decided to cut out a man from paper & stick it on briefly for a photo so I can get my bond back.

Barkers Eggs Everybody knows the joy of finding "barkers eggs" be they on the lawn or the indoor laid ones or even the sand covered one in disguise heres an unusual variety laid by my chihuahua glad they're unbroken :) I had to be quick with this shot after dropping the eggs the dog just sat down and looked at me wondering what the matter was , it took her only a minute or two to realise she wasn't in trouble and start chewing one but there was only laughter as it was too big to get her teeth into so she sat down again making for more laughter ......

Yesterday was the Sweetlife Food and Music Festival in Maryland. The fun these two girls were having just had to be captured on film. I shot this with my Canon Powershot S3 IS.

    Nice concept David. I got a chuckle out of that one.

      Thanks
      It was a lucky shot, the eggs were hard boiled and nearly didn't make the table :)

    Not an easy challenge , some by luck some by setup....
    Glad I had the camera handy to enter still a challenge worth taking to be in this company

    Missed to submit mine :(
    I have a soft toy of "Dumbo" - The elephant with the big ears :D

    what the hell is up with tegan's pic? looks like sticky fingers have touched the lens and messed it all up...? I'm about to get a 550 or 600d and i hope it doesn't take photos like that!

      Be happy in your choice, my 600D doesn't do that it could just be paint of photoshop stuff....:)

      Hey Chris, there seems to have been some issue when gizmodo have uploaded the pic. There was no lines or distortion on the pic. The canon EOS 550D is a fantastic camera and hasn't failed me yet. Check out kogan if you are looking for a bargain

    I'd love a big print of Stuart Addelsee's picture on my wall at home.

    Amy Akers picture seemed by far the most creative and interesting
