Weekly Challenge Winner - Weekly Challenge #497 - Places You've Been

I knew when I chose the challenge topic it was going to be a difficult one to judge. I was not disappointed. At first, I considered drawing the winner from a hat. But instead I decided to develop a secret algorithm based on picture quality, interesting subject, and general wish that I was there to take a similar image. Now on to the winners.

1st Place: nosiliwmit - I love how cropping off the front of the boat forces my eyes to look for the main subject until the leading line of the poll draws me past the seaweed to the water where it came from. Definitely a desired travel location not associated with a high tourist area.



2nd Place: StephenHampshire: Again, leading lines played an important role in this image. The narrow street getting narrower as it heads towards the back of the image rewards the viewer with a single, elderly couple walking arm in arm.



3rd Place: rod_grant: The face-forwardness of the center horse gives this image an implied leading line. I would love to tour Goorambat to find the other painted silos.



HM: djb47, cooks333, ramseybuckeye, and Bruce Clark.

Congratulations to Tim and I look forward to your challenge.

For this week's challenge, I'm looking for some of the lessor known places that produce interesting photo-ops. Please add a description of where your photo-op was taken. This will be my virtual vacation.

This challenge will close on May 31st at 5 PM EDST.

The fine print:
Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

Rules
1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax/Ricoh (DSLR) camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge

Examples:

NATIONAL MUSEUM OF THE UNITED STATES AIR FORCE, Dayton, OH


Rock -n- Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland, OH


Lake Michigan, Grand Haven, MI


Great American Ball Park, Cincinnati, OH


Good luck to all.

The mirror bumper on my K-r is starting to shed little pieces of foam. Is there an easy DIY published somewhere or do I need to send it in? If I need to send it in, where is the best place?

Weekly Challenge Winners - Weekly Challenge #490 Birds

I knew when I chose birds as my challenge topic that it would be a hard challenge to judge. I loved the variety of birds entered. And the winners are:

1st Place: DeKay. This one surprised me in a good way. I would never have thought to take a formal portrait of a chicken.



2nd Place: NickDB. Great color and sense of motion with the birds.



3rd Place: SpecialK. I can't count the number of times I tried to get a similar picture of our neighborhood heron. Well done.



HM: The love the birds and the bokah presented by the 4 honorable mentions: jacamar, photolady, Vaskebjorn, and erikro.


Great job by everyone and it is now up to DeKay to host the next challenge.
