CAPTION CONTEST -- Sci-Fi Edition: Now through 13 August 2020
Posted By: photoptimist, 08-06-2020, 05:43 AM

Caption Contest for the Week ending August 13 at 11:59 PM UTC is now open

Calling all punsters, poets, wordsmiths, marketing mavens, and clever souls. Here's another picture in need for a bit of text, title, script, or poetry.

Please submit your caption and do not forget to vote for your favorite by using the " like " button.

You are still allowed to vote with a like, even if you haven't entered yourself.

Submissions can be in any written form (no video or audio files) — caption, limerick, motivational, script dialog, poem, prose, or scripted dialog — whatever inspires you to describe the photo or catch attention. Submit by replying to the thread. Contestants may submit more than one entry but it must be in a separate post. Important: Even if you do not submit an entry, please “like” any posts you feel deserve it as this is how the winner is chosen. And if you DO submit an entry, please also find an entry that you like from among your competitors' efforts and "like" that one as well.

The "thread starter" is the moderator and must post an original photo at the start of the thread. In case of a tie the moderator will choose one to break the tie. After determination of the contest's winner, that winner will be notified ASAP after by the current Thread Starter/Contest Host and will become responsible for posting the next original work to be captioned. Enter often, vote more often. Good luck and enjoy.

To make it interesting, this image could be imagined as part of a science fiction story or movie -- perhaps something on the view screen of the Starship Whatnot or in seen in the lab before the the story becomes "interesting" for our intrepid cast of characters.

The biggest surprise at this year's Shire photo-fest was Sam Gamgee's photo of The Eye of Sauron taken with a Pentax K1 II using a 5000 stop ND filter.

Sheldon: "Okay, look, I think that you have as much of a chance of having a sexual relationship with Penny as the Hubble Telescope does of discovering at the centre of every black hole is a little man with a flashlight searching for a circuit breaker."

"That's not a moon! It's a space station!
I have a very bad feeling about this......."

Eric was quite excited to have discovered a new plant species and completely forgot about the magic mushrooms that had upset his tummy an hour or so ago.

So, we mixed a few little critters in a Petri dish and we're calling this one 'Covid-20'.

What is that said the curious onlooker ?

This gives an all new meaning to the phrase "beauty is in the eye of the beholder".
