Point & Shoot Competition #76: Magic March

In the absence of #75 competition winner, I'm starting this months comp.

The theme is........'any' picture taken this month, but only one entry per user, make sure its your best one

Winner will be judged by the users (one vote each) towards the end of the month.

Last entries in on the 28th, Midnight (GMT). Judging to start on the 29th when all entries are compiled.

The rules:

1. Have lots of 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 1kg.

Cameras permitted (cameras listed as acceptable here supersede rules above):

Mobile phones, old and new, iPods, tablets, toy cameras.
Fixed-lens 35mm and smaller-format film and digital rangefinder and viewfinder cameras.
Interchangeable or fixed-lens 110film SLRs and Pentax Q.
TLRs, 6x9, 6x7, 6x6, Medium Format "folding", "box", or "Holga-style" scale focus cameras ( subject to 1kg weight limitation).
Any camera brand allowed.

3. Entries will close on March 28, 2014 Midnight (GMT).
4. Maximum image dimensions are 1024x768 (ish) pixels.
5. List camera brand and model with entry for all to see, and exposure data would be nice.
6. Post-processing to a minimum, contrast, colour conversion, general fixes ok.
7. The photos in this contest must have been shot within March.
8. Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date and judges the next competition.
9. Enter 1 image (Edit - change your shot as many times as you like, the last image to be displayed on the cut off period will be accepted as your final entry)
10. Feel free to post a shot which shows off your setup.

Hope Chris is OK. Good job mooey, setting up contest #76. Thanks for stepping up to the plate. We haven't voted for winners before. This will be a nice change of pace. I need to take a worthy shot now.
thanks

The Getaway

Well, this is rather early to post with so much time left in the month, but I'll get it rolling, just because I was so happy with the wandering-round-hipshot snap. (Can we change our submission up to the 28th, or is this 'one-and-done'?)

I'm changing mine up... will be posted below.
