australopithecus: What is a Pilot Watch ?
Babalu,Right on target, thanks for help. I will update the rules.
Nigel J Watts: That's why it's called impossible ????,Try http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvmBLqjaZxY&feature=player_detailpage
or similar web page - interesting - I wonder how they do it
I don't know if you intended that but it also could be in a jet or rocket engine. Their nozzles (and intakes in the case of a jet engine) are wide openings that allow a good view inside the running engine.Jet engines are combustion engines - nobody said it should be the piston engine of your car. The same applies to the steam engine.
The camera must be inside the engine or the picture should see the interior of the engine through a hole? Maybe you should clarify this in the rules prior to challenge opening.
tarakanchik: Wow, a ton of beautiful pictures in this one! I can see most of these hanging on my wall, having said that though, as a wallpaper some of these would be a little to involved. As in, If I had to look for an icon among a rich colorful field of flowers I'd probably get a bit frustrated. I guess I like my wallpapers simple :)
I think that you should set rules to encourage real photography not fantasy photoshoping. The images (I can't call them photos) placed on 3rd and 8th places are such obvious Photoshop compositions! At least the mosque on the 8th place has a huge amount of white fringe that I could call it as a bad edit even for a Photoshop contest.
Some very good indeed. Given the generosity of the theme I had very high hopes and one week later I 'm fairly disappointed as I found (too) many sunsets, beaches, trees and flowers.
Composite image - hard to believe that you would get such a big Moon with an 18 mm lens.
EXX: May I also use a Lego toy from my own childhood ;-)
Sure, no problem. You can use even your present day toys :))
Alpha Whiskey Photography: My food looks more appetising and is certainly healthier than this.
AcerAntec: Nice idea for a challenge, thanks Alex 236!Depending on the number of entries--if large enough: would you consider another Modeling challenge under focus stacking requirement?I'm longing to see some nice, full-in-focus realistic renditions!(Too bad all of my models are still concealed in their boxes.)
Naga Praveen: Excellent composition!Cheers!
You are very kind, thank you.Best regards,
Very creative, congratulations!
l_objectif: Photoshopped; composite?

ws1967: most of the pics are no shots of silhouettes through a window (curtain)
...and had to be disqualified by the host.
Apparently you got the first place by cheating. I got a commplaint that you have multiple accounts. As result I decided to disqualify your image and to ban you from my challenges. Your behavior is a shame for your country (which by the way happens to be mine too).
Alexis: Would the photo have to be taken from an air plane or would other "aerial" devices be OK like a glider, parachute etc...
Any aircraft in flight would be ok.
