Hmm, some entrants have a strange definition of "very distinct"...
barb_s: Sorry to do this, but I got such an odd variety of entries, that I decided not to go through with the challenge. There were a couple of street art type photo's , not really still life. A few that were traditional still life's , a few that stretched the definition, and a few where you'd debate whether the net some objects were arranged on, or a plate that held fruit should be counted.
So, because there was already much discussion on day 2, I decided to end the challenge. I'll do a better job with a second version later on. Sometimes a simple rule set isn't a good rule set.
Again, I apologize,
And I just shot my would be entry (which may have also stretched the definition a little, but that's what definitions and boundaries are good for.. -- and I waited to see if you would dq the one entry slighty similar to mine). Well, still had fun.
Better luck with your next challenge!
fathernature: The old Photosuite program I used didn't record the EXIF data can I still use the photo.Thx Randy

maxola67: One more entity to disappear(together with mail).
There are more bullwhips made today than ever before; neither technologies or forms of communication ever vanish completely, they just get overshadowed by newer toys.
tko: Loved your photo, gave it 4 or 5 stars myself.
Thank you.I think yours is better, btw.
88SAL: Excellent work!! Try it in light field too?
Thank you!Do you mean with a white background?Not with an angle -- my original idea was an orthogonal shot, this was after i got that and was "fooling around" with the setup.Best fitting example here (even the same technique to emphasize the edges): http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/1017157792/photos/1157027/glasinglas?inalbum=glasses
My main aim with this one was to learn how to pronounce the edges of the glasses with a white, uh, edge against a dark background, as it is more difficult than dark edges against a white background (or at least I have far difficulties getting an acceptable result).I'll try a similar shot with a white background in the future, but first I'll have to get some more ideas that need a similar setup -- I am somewhat lazy and prone to breaking the glasses, so I want to make it count.
jezsik: Great use of shapes and tones. Well done!
Thank you, again!
jezsik: Wow, nice set-up!
Blomerus: Excellent photo!
pleytime: I don't understand how there are 100 entries that are 'unvoted' yet there are 1169 'votes'?
The difference is that YOU didn't cast any votes ;-)
bluemoonman: Great work & well deserved top spot but why the low votes?
It seems nearly every entry got at least 3 0.5 points...
Deleted pending purge: <INTER-AD> : If anyone plans on entering anything tiny and living, (such as insects, spiders, flowers, etc. which are outside of the scope in this challenge) you might like to save these for a challenge 'The World of Tiny' which will be hosted by RuthC in late April. Such entries might be suitable there.:)
Just out of interest: what about things that were once part of living beings? Seashells, feathers and so on? Of course, being too strict about this and you would also have to dq stuff made out of wood...
barb_s: As other's said…. this is really cool and original! Congratulations!!
Daakku: Great idea...suggestion... Tilt the plane down or up a bit to induce dynamics a bit more
Well, I threw the plane in with an angle, but it "self righted" itself.Had I hit the trigger just a little later, there would be a bow visible, but the splash would be smaller -- with more or less 20 tries, this was the best compromise.A composing of different shots wouldn't have been allowed in this challenge, and I couldn't make on anyway -- to blend the, uh, air/water intrusion thingy (I am loss of words here ;-) ) of two different shots convincingly is beyond my post-processing fu...
grayowl: Congratulations !
Thank you, also!
chrisby: Well done! It is allways a pleasure to see some out-of-the-box images here. Congratulations!
Thank you, too!
Ahmad Imran: CONGRATULATIONS!!!!This is my favorite image. Great Idea with equally great execution.Well Deserved WIN
Thank you!It's not that original -- I saw enough phote where somebody threw in lemons and similar, I just tried to be a little different with the object.
mjdundee: Super Idee - klasse gemacht! Gratuliere.
Danke! Ich hab halt viele Bilder gesehen, bei denen Zitronen u.ä. ins Wasser geschmissen wurden, und wollte das auch mal ausprobieren, ohne genau dasselbe zu machen/die gleichen Objekte reinzuwerfen -- das Spielzeugflugzeug hab ich zufällig gesehen, weil ich nach einem kleinen Plastikhai o.ä. in der Spiezlzeugabteilung gesucht hab.Mir kam's dann zu Gute, dass das Flugzeug unter Wasser ein bisschen "fliegt", also einen Bogen macht, wenn man es schief hinein wirft. Zumindest ein klein bisschen merkt man's im fertigen Bild (hätte ein paar zehntel Sekunden später auslösen sollen, aber bei den Versuchen, wo mir das gelang, ist die Wasserfontäne kaum noch da)Und wer das jetzt mit Google übersetzt hat und halbwegs versteht, was rauskommt -- Gratulation! ;-)
pen araneae: Great idea and execution. Congratulations.
grayowl: Sorry, I didn't read the note before I wrote my previous comment.
No offense taken!
