#454 Show me some "wow"
Posted By: charliezap, 03-31-2019, 09:07 AM

Once again I'm humbled and honored to be hosting the weekly challenge

We have all seen and probably have taken some shots that have a certain amount of "wow" factor to them. The subject could be anything under the sun that impacts us when viewed. That being said let's see what you have to move my "Wow Meter" The challenge will close at midnight Sunday April 7th.

The fine print:
Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

Rules
1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax/Ricoh (DSLR) camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge

Here are some examples that may have a certain amount of "wow" to them. I"m showing you mine--let me see yours.--charliezap

I don't have a lot of "wow" pics, but for me, the views of Monument Valley are "wow" worthy.

I didn't have any other longer lens with me so I tried to do wildlife with FA 77. After couple of hours I managed to get pretty close... this is only very little cropped.

I have a different kid of wow shot and not my usual shooting style. But I thought it might fit because of what shows up after I got it on the computer. Taken with an Pentax A 28mm f2.8 lens during a SIC challenge in 2015 at a local river park, aptly named the Veterans Park.

And mine is ineligible. Posted after the cut off time. Didn't realize it at the time it was after midnight. Sorry Charlie, maybe next time.
