Buzz Lightyear: Metal sculpture (maybe polished brass?); about 4-5 meters high; installed in the lobby of the Hyatt Regency Hotel, San Francisco. I took this picture from a overhanging balcony on the 6th floor.
Thanks for the info because I was about to ask the size. This is much larger than I guessed. (And it is one of my favorites in this challenge too)
db.: Very nice challenge: great "rock harvest"!
Yes , including the rock stars! Voting results should be interesting.
Ed I have to say, this is the "Host's pick". I love the background. It sets off the subtle coloring on the bird so nicely. And now I know what a White-Throated Sparrow looks like, should I see one. Congratulations on a beautiful entry as runner up.
Very nice. As Ed said, great detail here. And it's cute! Congratulations on the win.
Very nice entry among many interesting photographs. Congratulations on the win.
The mood here is wonderful and the picture is a standout. Congratulations on the win!
Super nice ! Congratulations on the win!
I love this one! The perspective is so unique, it just make the picture special.
I think this is just beautiful. Congratulations on the win here.
barb_s: I love the simplicity and beauty of the photo - a well done runner up in the challenge. May I ask - what exactly is this ?
Thank you , I would not have guessed, but that adds perspective.

Wow, that is a big engine and a lot to fill the frame with! There was such variety in the mix, I couldn't guess which would pull into 1st place. There are many that were worthy, including this one. Congratulations for the win!
barrym1966: 15 out of 38, even years after school I still manage to be average :)
Actually, yours was 15 out of 43 when it went thru the votes. A few withdrew afterwards. That's closer to the top 1/3 than top 1/2.
I thought your photo was lively and interesting.
JerryShots: I'm going out on a limb here and guessing you just don't bother with rules in general, right?
I mean - How many flowers is the right amount of flowers in a "Single Flower" contests..?What causes this kind of thing, if I could ask?
This entry will be adjusted or switched to something more in line with a "single flower" . The entrant has been notified and given an option to find a solution that is more fitting.
What a lovely entry. I know cropping square was a challenge in itself , and I am certain you made this brides day! She is just as beautiful as the picture Congratulations!
Look at those eyes! What a strong entry - and I don't know how you managed to get the shot. I think this one was hard to capture; cat's being cats are not as cooperative as , say dogs. So, Congratulations!!
Serenity, beauty, and a full frame camera to take it in. What a nice photo and a worthy podium entry!
Wow, I can't imagine the effort to build this! This is an educational photo for me. Congratulations on your win.
Navathej K: May I know why the rule of square format is put in place ? any specific reason at all ?
I agree, but that's also what makes a challenge a challenge.
