Winner: Camouflage Frog
Please propose the photo for The Most Difficult Puzzle. 'The most difficult' is crucial but remember that the photo must be interesting as well (i.e. puzzle with a single tiled roof would be hard to put together but extremally boring so I would prefere an aerial view of whole town/city with hundred tiled roofs).

Winner: Desmond in Martin Place

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.
