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...

In reply to:

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...

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! ;-)

"Processing rules: nil"
Do you mean no processing, or no rules concerning processing?
I guess your sample entries mean the later, just want to be sure.

The host usually changes the limit during the week, sometimes in more then 1 step, up to max 100.
The reason (I think) is that this challenge often fills up fast, even with a limit of 100 entries (any more, and there will be some comments bemoaning it...), and, this being a worldwide challenge, this penalizes would be entrants in some timezones -- for me, the challenge starts at 1:00 am Saturday morning, meaning there's often half a day before I am able to upload an entry...

"thank" you dpreview photo "processing" for ruining the picture...
It was perfectly fine before the upload (the softness was intentional), now the bottom looks like a cheap 80's video effect...

Bwah, humbug.
Evolution is a far more elegant and difficult ( = > needing way more intelligence) way to create things than the drudgery of designing an everchanging array of different parasites and bugs (there are far more of them as of the pretty, pretty flowers, you know?), every single kind for itself.

Those proponents of ID just want to drag down God's intelligence down to their level of understanding, a rather insulting believe, if you think about it.
(great, now bible thumpers and extreme atheists will be angry...)

In reply to:

CG33: As per the "sample", the challenge is not about "macro photography", it is about close ups.

Only one, maybe two of the not withdrawn entries I would classify as a macro, some are not even close ups imo.
