This contest seems a bit slow to get going.
Perhaps people are put off by the number 13? I certainly don't like anything to do with 13 .

Anyway, here are my two candidates, both with Panasonic FX500.


Mirror lock.






Weathered.

My contributions

This past Friday night (Nov 21st), I walked outside to take a break at work, right as the sun was setting. No time to get to a better position, but I loved the colors in the sky. Hand held and cropped


On November 13th when I was in back of the school waiting for my youngest son to come out, I got this shot. I saw a hawk fly down and grab something from the ground and fly up in this tree. I walked up the street to find him munching on his lunch. This is a crop of about half the original image. I only had my fx01 with me (always in my purse). It is 6 mp and 3x zoom. Boy was I crying for my k20d and the f*300 I had sitting at home! I was close to this guy and could have got amazing shots if I had my gear. I can't carry my full dslr gear everywhere, but I do carry my Panasonic fx01 p&s just for occasions like this.

Thank you all for participation, though I must admit, turnout is a little disappointing.

There are still few hours left in the day - go shoot something!!! House is full of goodies and things just waiting for your eye to find it!

And the winners are...

Sorry all for being a slacker, time just slipped, and I completely forgot that I had to judge the photos. So with no further delay, here it goes:

1 - LaRee with her Hawk shot, incredible capture (though I know you wish you had a longer reach)

2 - skid2964 with the Remington Typewriter - I think you've captured the feel and character of this subject perfectly

3 - Barondla with Sennheiser headphones, great creative approach to the subject

Thank you all for your sumbmitions!

Regards,
D
