Pentax Point & Shoot Competition #53 - "Oh! Wow!"

Pentax Point & Shoot Competition #53 - "Oh! Wow!"
The theme for the 53rd Pentax Point and Shoot (P&S) competition is "Oh! Wow!".
Any Images that stir strong emotions to make you say "Oh! Wow!" are what I'm are looking for.

The Rules

1. Have Fun!

2. Cameras
  • No cameras with sensors larger than 1"
  • No large format or camera typically requiring a tripod to use
  • No interchangeable lens cameras
  • No 35mm (D)SLRs or any camera weighing over 1 kg

Cameras permitted (cameras listed as acceptable here supersede rules above)
  • Fixed-lens 35mm and smaller-format film and digital rangefinder and viewfinder cameras
  • Interchangeable or Fixed-lens 110 film SLRs and Pentax Q
  • TLRs, 6x9, 6x7, 6x6 and 6x4.5 Medium Format "Folding", "Box", or "Holga-style" scale focus cameras (subject to 1 kg weight limitation)

3. Entries will close on April 30, 2012, at midnight GMT

4. Maximum image dimensions are 1024x768 pixels

5. Max of 3 image entries per person, from archives or fresh. Entries may be withdrawn or changed

6. List camera brand, model with entry for all to see, and exposure data would be nice.

7. Post processing is fine.

8. I will "like" all entries

9. Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date and judges next competition

10. Have Fun!

Hi Frission
I certainly hope it is playful! If we can get a bunch of enthusiastic compact camera users to submit their entries that make us laugh, cry, or just surprise us - and have some fun at the same time, then it will be a really great contest.

And, for Altopiet Oh! Wow and Oh! Sh*t! are not so different

Already seen pics you have each entered in previous contests which qualify for the Oh! Wow! category.

There you go, Christo. Wasn't so bad was it?
Your camera certainly qualifies and as for your photograph - Oh! Wow!, what a view. Where was it taken?

Michael, this is not fair, I show some rocks and dirt and you show something for old men with dirt(y) minds. Surely this is a NWS photo, I must protest, or appeal to the judge!!

Edit: Very nice one, makes me miss my younger days!
