Have any of you guys placed yourself (intentionally or otherwise) in an accepted photo here? I've got my shadow in frame at least once, but the other couple of times were more interesting.

My knee, because I was leaning back in a limbo position:

Too bad Mike B's not around to call me out on this shameless plea for clicks.

Two of my RP shots have me in them. (Two too many.)

I've never uploaded a "shadow" shot here.But I have a neat shot to share. This is what happens at night at Collinwood Station E in Cleveland Ohio.

And if you want to see me in action waving between shots, you can see it here (look in the same spot):

Hi, David;

It's an open shutter shot at night. The camera's "eye" is open as the train moves through the frame. I set the shot up, put the camera on tripod, then set the timer to take the shot in ten seconds.

For open eye shots, it's all about leaving the shutter speed high. I tried it for the first time a few weeks ago and had decent results. The key is to take a test shot first so the shot isn't to over/under exposed. For the shot shown, my aperture was on 10 and the shutter was at 20 seconds. The train was moving slow and as you can see, it didn't make it all the way to the end of the frame.
Anyone else want to critique it for me, you're welcome to do so.

I think most people would interpret "high shutter speed" as being fast, which is the opposite of what you're trying to say, right?

Yeah. Slow shutter speed is what I meant.

The one of mine that immediately comes to mind is a shot with the shadow of my son sitting on my shoulders waving at the crew and them waving back:
