Point & Shoot Contest #30 - Colors

THEME - "Colors"


I thought this to be a nice sequel to last month's theme (Dazzling Light) and pretty broad, allowing a lot of entries (here's hoping).
Perhaps it's the long lasting winter over here that makes me long for color.

On the other hand, I would applaud a picture where all the colors seem to be absent as well - not to be mistaken with B&W or de-saturating in PP.


THE RULES
1. Have fun!
2. No 35mm, APS, or 4/3 SLR/DSLR cameras allowed. 110 film SLRs, 35mm and smaller rangefinder/viewfindercameras are allowed. No medium or large format cameras allowed.
3. Entries will close on April 30th, 2010.
4. Maximum image dimensions are 800x800 pixels.
5. List camera brand, model with entry for all to see.
6. THEME: "Colors"
7. Max of 3 photographs per person.
8. Post processing is fine.
9. Winner will set up and judge next contest.


Let's see your entries, people!

Great start!

Thanks, Pentaxie & toylas.

Indeed the Easter Eggs would have made for a great entry, skid2964 but I'm sure you'll come up with some other good ideas.

Looking forward to the next entries, people...
