Point & Shoot Competition #112 - open theme!

I like variety. Not much into assignments. Want to see everyone's best work. There is no theme. Shoot and enter what you want! This might be harder for you. it will be harder for me to judge. It will be worth it.


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 cameras (Fuji X100 and GR OK).
Interchangeable or fixed-lens 110film SLRs and Pentax Q.

ANY CAMERA BRAND ALLOWED.

3. Entries will close May 31, 2017 at Midnight (CST).

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.

Thanks for participating

Pure dumb luck shot. Taken with my MX-1 in Indiana a few weeks ago. My brother was driving and I wanted to get a snapshot of the rainbow. The trucker was kind enough to be in the right place at the right time. The MX-1 shutter release timing can be a real adventure sometimes but this time all worked out fine.

Nearing the end of the month! There is still plenty of time to get those entries in.
Have a safe holiday weekend.
Thanks

Shot with a Ricoh WG-20. Much better to use than my K-7 or K-1 from the seat of the kayak!

Excellent contest. The open category made this extremely difficult to judge. Went back and forth thru the images. Finally decided.

2nd place - Bart "little space alien in tree". Love the look of this. The B&W processing is superb. Great vision to see this hiding in a tree. This would be a wonderful enlargement on the livingroom wall.

1st place - gaweidert "rainbow trucking". Excellent grab shot. Perfect alignment of rainbow and truck. What really pushed this image over the top is the window reflection of $2 bills floating over the rainbow. The wiper blade looks like it left "rainbow streaks" on the windshield.

Congratulations gaweidert. Time for you to set up and run competition #113.

Thanks to everyone for making this a great competition.
