Winner: Camouflage Frog
Please propose the photo for The Most Difficult Puzzle.

Winner: Desmond in Martin Place
Please create the icon. An icon portait of a person (a human - not the animals, plants etc.). Only one person should be visible in the picture and it can't be only a face - show us at least the bust and two hands. And the most important - give it this spiritual flavour. No snapshots - I will be ruthless and disqualify them. Please read Additional rules.
