Your English written in a hurry is still way better than my French even written very, very slowly.

... Please, ladies and gentlemen, have a thought for Immunogirl, which will have to judge this one. It won't be an easy task, I'm afraid.
Yes. I believe I will hold it against all of you guys that you've made it so hard. I promise to absolutely torture whoever the winner is with my entries next month. G.T., out of solidarity for my plight, you should join in.

As promised (Or as pretty much refuted, as the case may be), my entries. I expect these will not complicate Immunogirl's judging.




Pentax Optio A40, Program mode, 1/8s f/4.8, ISO 800. Juxtaposed, two brand new cars from Europe, both sold in whole or in part based upon their resemblance to their forebears from the 1960s. Also, despite that suprisingly deep similarity, the economical Fiat 500 and extremely fast Porsche 911 Carerra are worlds apart. Thus, in this night scene, I have captured two different juxtapositions between the same two objects.




Pentax Optio A40, Program mode, 1/320s F/8, ISO 800. The bush is juxtaposed with itself, the majority of it in greenery while one solitary branch gives in to the change of Autumn. The strong lighting adds drama.




Pentax Optio A40, Program mode, 1/320s F/2.8, ISO 200, +1EV. An apple iPhone 3Gs, currently the most popular camera on Flickr, hangs out with some popped film canisters and developing reels, juxtaposing not only the size of the digital device versus the mere accessories of cameras gone by, but also alluding to the convenience in the Phone, as it needs no such accoutrements to allow viewing of the taken image.

Erik, about your 1st submission, that's a Porsche 911, but what about the black car? Fiat 500?

Indeed. It does say so in my half a novel of text.

I'm really an oaf these days, I had not even realized there was a text beneath the picture.
I wasn't aware the 500 was exported to the US. It should fit underneath a trailer (remember "the fast & the furious")

Nice photo theme on the third..

I guess I'm judging these tomorrow, I'm not looking forward to making a decision. Have I told you guys that I'm the most indecisive person on earth?

Argggh. I've been struggling with this one and almost opened it up for a vote

1st Place - Woof
I couldn't choose between 2 of his pics:




2nd place: Wildman with his cats:



Third place: Frission001:



Honorable mentions: Every other photo on this thread. Seriously, I had a very hard time choosing, there were so many good submissions this month.

Congrats everyone!
