Point and Shoot Competition, #96 People Pix

As title implies, I would like all manner of people pictures, be it street, family, portraiture, surprise me!

cut and paste from last comp:

RULES (as per usual):

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 style 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 Sunday, January 31st at Midnight (green meanwitch time), extended for holiday season.
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. No restrictions on when the entries were taken.
7. Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date and judges the next competition.

8. Enter up to three images, however you may change your entries as many times as you like up to the contest closing date/time.

9. Feel free to post a shot (not judged) which shows off your setup.

Best wishes this holiday season!

A still from a gopro is allowed, pretty sure the sensor is not larger than one inch.

@Jacquot, thanks, I'm hoping for participation even though it is a busy time of year.

PM your email, I already resized your pic using Fastone (free download) and you'll be all set.

Wissink, excellent photo of your boy!

Very nice, pearsaab, that 'you are there' feel to this. I've done some rafting on the Snake River, fun times.

A fun theme, Bill!
Challenging for me however: I normally avoid having people in my images

Off to a great start already!

Cool capture in the Holliday mood of your son, Wissink.

I prefer the slightly surreal version of your water adventure, pearsaab.


Great composition of those water planes, John.
