The Extraordinary Challenge Challenge finished on Saturday, 28 May 2011 Unfortunately, the change of being disqualified with no good reason is fairly big in this challenge. Only the best of the best is good enough. So if you dare, submit an extraordinary picture and we’ll see what happens, OK? During the submission period at the end of every day, I will cut down the content to contain only the best of the best. Be aware that I will probably DQ a lot of the entries with no justifiable motivation. Then again: that’s the extraordinary thing about this challenge, and please realize: the winner of this one is truly one of the greatest! (This is the last challenge in the "The Extraordinary" series.)
