Just grabbing your attention to remind people that my contest "food-foto--frenzy" has just about 3 weeks left to run.For those that don't know it is located in the "mini-challenges,games and photo stories " section of the forum.There are 3 cash prizes ($100-$50 &$25) and you may submit up to 10 photos.Incidently the men who fish the "lobstas" do a tough job in varying types of weather--some of it not to pleasant--but their product sure is tasty.This picture was taken at the Ballard St dock in Saugus Ma on a foggy morning.The effect was solely captured by using the HDR filter on the Pentax K20d.The photo has a food connection and it would certainly be elligible for the contest.So to all those who haven't submitted there is still plenty of time to do so.Every time I look at Post Your Photos there are new people posting and hopefully they will enter the contest.Good luck--CharlieZap

Haha- great post!

BTW, I'll gladly post an article about this on the site homepage- that should get you some exposure! Simply PM me with the text you'd like me to write, as well as with a 150x150 thumbnail.

Man, I dig this shot. Maybe because I relate - I'm posting from my boat and it's cocktail hour. Seriously, Capn - a great New England image.

Dave--If you find a lobsta roll shoot it and enter it in the contest.--With 10 photos allowed there is no telling what your devious mind is capable of.--charliezap

Hey, Capn - I tried something . . . . hope it's not too much of a thematic stretch.
