Thanks Kyteflyer. If you hadn't said anything I would have been oblivious to the problem as the picture showed fine on my PC.

Lookin' at you



My dad farting around with my Leica M2 at a reunion in West Virginia. Pentax Optio A40 again, Program mode EV -0.3, 1/125, f/2.8, ISO 100.

If I find some renn faire pictures I took with a Yashica Electro 35 by tomorrow, I'll post one.

There are so many great entries in this competition. Here are the winning images:

Third place goes to Bart with his lone Fisherman image. A single individual out for a day of doing what he loves. The tone/colors he captured make this a great pic.




In Second place we have Samtr87 with Evening at the Beach. It's a fun image with the promise of sooo much more to come.




The winner is Immunogirl with Three Kayakers. Here we have 3 friends rafted up together, relaxing and reminiscing about the great time they've just spent on a fun and friendship filled day together.



Honorable mention goes to:

Kyteflyer for this very relaxed capture:




Anton Magus for his 'troubadours'



G.T. for the 'walk on the beach and kite surfer' image:





Congrats to everyone for a great competition and I look forward to seeing what Immunogirl sets as the next theme.

Thanks Ivoire for setting an interesting competition and to the people who submitted very good entries.

Congratulations to Immunogirl, Samtr87, Bart and Kyteflyer.

It turned out to be a very good competition despite the jerk who questioned the rules.

OK. I have worked it out.

Obviously a glitch in their system.
Glad you sorted it out. Great pic

Oh wow, I go away for a weekend & look what happens! There's no accounting for taste.

Thanks Ivoire!

Congrats to all the other winners, as well.

I haven't quite kept up with your guys' debate on what's a point & shoot or not. I'm just copying ivoire's rules on that.

Congrats to the deserving winners! It once again proves to me that I have no idea what makes a good photo, and that my victory in #41 was pure blind luck.

Maybe I'll learn how to photography someday.

We've been pretty well agreed, whatever the outcome of our academic debates on the subject, that the judge makes the rules.

That being as it is, as the opener of the next contest, where do Automatic-exposure but manual-focus Polaroid cameras fall?

I think they fall in point & shoot. My point & shoot'll let me manually focus, I even use it sometimes when it's being stubborn and not focusing in the right spot.
