Weekly Challenge #423 - WINNERS - Too close for comfort
Posted By: Quartermaster James, 06-09-2018, 01:24 PM

Thanks to everybody for participating. Some really great entries here.


aaacb: I love the story this photo tells, especially the background cop.

RGlasel: really captures the theme. Great shot.

Vaskebjorn: no, that kitten does not look comfortable at all!

Bruce Clark: Great look into the macro world. Predators come in all sizes.

atupdate: Very evocative, even without the background story this is a photo that begs interaction.

Tamia: Thanks for your rescue work! Great photo!

Hattifnatt: Love it! Can't say I would have been comfortable doing that myself!

jacamar: Great shot! Coyote has a cataract maybe?

sealonsf: Oh my! Yeah, no...not getting me out there like that!

SpecialK: Looks exciting!

dlneubec: Cute. Very artistic. Very shy.

Terry C: Yeah, I hope not in my bathroom!

noelcmn: Would not want to be on the receiving end of her wrath!

Honorable mentions:

3rd Place - RGlasel: nice tension between the obvious discomfort and no apparent way out of the situation.

2nd Place: Bruce Clark: terror on a tiny scale!

And the winner is...

1st Place - atupdate: I really like this picture. I find it reminiscent of a painting by Giorgio de Chirico. When reviewing the entries, I tried to imagine them in a gallery with only the contest title as the description. I kept coming back to this shot.

@Quartermaster James, this was a different sort of challenge, open to many interpretations, thanks for creating and judging it. Congratulations to atupdate and Bruce Clark and I appreciate the opportunity to have my photograph viewed in conjunction with all the other excellent entries.
