We keep visiting different beaches here in NC, so here's one from another vacation:

Kure Beach, NC
Fuji FinePix F700
f:6.3
1/120"
ISO200
8.5mm Focal Length

And yes, the clouds really did have that almost painted pastel look. I couldn't decide which to submit for awhile, but this one won out.

I wondered about that. But the rule maker of this series said:

1. ANY camera other than a slr/dslr is eligble.

So I assumed he was overriding the original theme because why exclude SLR/DSLR cameras. But in reality, I did point the camera and shoot. Just not very fast. ;-)

My reading:

"ANY camera other than a slr/dslr" is quite clear and very unambiguous. The author put stress on the word "ANY." Read it out loud that way. I don't think there is much room for interpretation.

This has angered some in the past. Me? I'm a strict constructionist. I'll go with original intent and live with it.

woof!
