Re: Can You Tell What It Is Yet?

This has not been the most popular monthly challenge so far but we still had a worthwhile number of entries and some very imaginative ideas - it's just a shame we only got 16 votes.

In joint 1st place we have PDK42 and JohnGG, each with 7 votes.

In joint 3rd place we have PeterBirder and dbutch, each with 1 vote.

Congrats to John and Paul.

Given the theme of the competition I feel that all those who posted should now add what it is in their picture (actually I remember Paul's from not that long ago but it was still worth voting for).

Wow, joint third that's a record for me.

My entry was mowing patterns in a wildflower meadow.

Regards.

Congrats to everyone standing on the crowded podium,
John for running the comp and all those who entered or voted, my shot was of a commercial auto gearbox, but they still don't know what that funny noise was...

I bet Nikon supply roller ball pens rather than pencils.

Mine was waves and ripples on Lake Huron at sunrise.

Thanks for the votes! My shot was a moving walkway in, I think, Frankfurt airport. A long exposure taken with a fisheye lens and the camera balanced on the handrail.
