Point & Shoot Competition #102 - Clouds

For this 102nd Compact camera contest I give you "Clouds"!

After a brief rethink and since no posts have been made yet I am changing the topic of this contest - narrowing it to Clouds. The clouds theme seems a bit broader (ironically) and I can find examples easier.

RULES (as per usual):
0. You may only submit your own photos as contest entries.
1. Let's 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 Thursday, July 31st 2016 at Midnight (PDT).
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.

Example Pics (Placed in post 2 so it doesn't repeat)


All of these EXAMPLES OF THE THEME are taken from Flickr and have a license that allows sharing. All still link back to the original posts - please click them and follow the links if you want more info on the photo or photographer. All were taken with a compact camera.

These are here to help clarify the kinds of cloud images I have seen that really speak to me. Have fun with the theme!

Plenty of cloudy skies where I live

Not quite as dramatic as those examples, though.

Freshly processed with DxO Optics and FilmPack
All with Panasonic FX500.


The pier in Nieuwpoort.
Focal length:5.8 mm (35mm:34 mm), 1/640 at f/4, ISO 100




Searching for Utopia - Jan Fabre
(name of the sculpture and sculptor)
Focal length:4.4 mm (35mm:26 mm), 1/800 at f/4, ISO 100



I found it amusing how the clouds seem to be exhaled by the turtle.

Gulls against the clouds
Focal length:22 mm (35mm:130 mm), 1/500 at f/5.9, ISO 100



This is actually from inland but we still get seagulls where I live, just some 40 Km away from the coast.

Default camera app or something else? Post processed? Just a question for the curious - no impact one way or the other on the competition.

I think it was Cameras+ and Snapseed. I use the combination quite a lot.

What is this reflected in? What an unusual perspective - I'd love to see more context later after the close of this contest.
