I'm ready to jump in and get things started. These bicycles are actually an art piece at the Naval Park at Canalside in Buffalo, NY.

Taken with my now extinct Panasonic FS7.

Here's a recent GR photo (OK?...no viewfinder, but that's what I take in the bag...). It has wheels. I'll keep looking for good subjects--with other cameras, too.

Under sea cable ship with giant "wheels". Pentax Optio W20. The Crop affects the image quality a bit when resized......but you may not have noticed unless I mentioned it.

Really cool! and I see some more "wheels" in the distance on the left.
I'm not so worried about image quality
I don't think this is the main concern in these competitions.
