Point & Shoot Contest #24 - "The Best View From My Place"

The rules:
Rules of entry

1. ANY camera other than a slr/dslr is eligble.
2. Entries will end on Sunday October 9, 2009 20:00 EST. (-5:00 GMT)
3. Maximum image dimensions are 800 X 800 pixels.
4. List camera BRAND and MODEL with entry for all to see.
5. List the name of the place, the City/State and Country where the pic is taken.
6. Maximum of 3 photos per photographer.
7. Post processing is fine.
8. Winner will set up and judge next contest.
9. Remember to have fun
As far as I can remember, the rules have always been copied from one contest to the next. So, the "ANY camera other than a slr/dslr is eligible" has always been there.
Though the capitals on "any" are rather recent, I believe.
This has indeed angered some people up to to the point of not participating anymore.
I don't think it's a big deal: at the dimensions we are using here, it is not as if non P&S cameras are automatically going to win!
Rules are rules and let's not forget rule number 9

Of course any winner of a contest can modify the rules according to his own preferences.
So, for those that would prefer to limit the contest to only P&S cameras, I would suggest: make sure you win and make a change

My reading:
This has angered some in the past. Me? I'm a strict constructionist. I'll go with original intent and live with it.
Whomever is judging can just exclude my entry based their interpretation of the rule and no hard feelings on my part. Maybe I can dig up one of my pinhole camera shots, the original point-n-shoot camera, and see how that goes over. ;-)

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

Since you quoted my message, let me be clear about MY feelings about this.

I think that you should be allowed to enter that shot. I think others have already agreed.

What's more, I think it is and AWESOME shot.

I've been wanting to try to this with my G10.

woof!

And since the most important rule for me is
9. Remember to have fun

So that one counts. we need more participants. Hope there will be more entries .

Well, I'm too late, but wanted to let Bart know, I'm not one of persons he
mentioned.

City where I live now, Huntsville AL:





The first two using a Koni Rapid Omega 100 (6x7 format rangefinder) and
expired Provia 100F film, and the last is a 35mm point and shoot Ricoh FF-90
and Arista 400 color film which is no longer manufactured.

A view taken at my local golf course a year ago. Haven't had any days like that this Fall. Just cold and grey so far. Used a Canon SD750.
