Now I feel itchy all over..
Hahaha, good one Ruth!!
upuaut: Seems like what I meant the theme to be didn't convey in the description. Let me try with examples. Skyscraper: I imagined a scraper (the tool) scraping the sky (using PP etc), or, the scraper made of 'sky'. Hotrod: a rod glowing from heat. Blood-orange: half orange with blood inside.
Note that the rules allow all the PP you need.
Some compound words might be difficult to convey in images (per intention of this challenge)
Anyway, I hope this comment helps steer the rest of submissions. Thanks.
Example image probably would have helped. Fun challenge worth repeating in the future!
These entries really made me smile!
I don't think your example shows "contradiction". Perhaps you meant "contrasting".
Definition of Contradiction:1. act or an instance of contradicting2. proposition, statement, or phrase that asserts or implies both the truth and falsity of something <a round square is a contradiction in terms>3. logical incongruity4. a situation in which inherent factors, actions, or propositions are inconsistent or contrary to one another
RuthC: This is a really beautiful picture of ivy, ysal, and deserves a top place in this Jigsaw Puzzle Challenge. You've captured the ivy leaves in their full display of colours, and the variations of reds/greens and purples make for a very interesting picture all round. The branches, to my mind, add another dimension with their contrasting greys and burnished reds. Ruth :-)
Beautiful shot, this will certainly give me a big headache to put together as a puzzle.
Love this shot!
It is interesting to see many of the top 10 winners got 0.5 points. Hmmmm...sandbagging?
Congrats Stevie, a beautiful shot!
Ruth, there is always a few who complain about everything but the majority of us really enjoy and love your challenges. Some gorgeous entries here!
Carmen, you keep nailing these Best of the Week challenges with your hummer shots! Congrats, great capture!
Thanks Carmen and Nik!
Thanks Ruth and Percy, and to everyone who voted for me!
This was one of my top picks, beautiful colors and I love the way the two bugs are sitting side by side.
Stunning shot Carmen! The sheen on the feathers is fantastic! Beautiful colors.
Congrats on the double win Percy! I actually prefer this to your 1st place shot. Incredible colors and a very special capture.
Great shot, congrats.
