Wow - Is this camera still on the market?I thought it was discontinued and replaced last year...
It's ugly as sin - It has to overcome that.
JerryShots: Is the challenge asking for five shots on one subject of your choice - Or simply five shots that have no particular theme, subject, processing technique..?
Thanks for the clarification.
Hey, I shot a spider like this one in Key West, Fl...Odd critter.
Perfect sample - A guy with Almost no hair who is squinting and has a bit of red eye...This should be great! I can't wait to see all the bald, brunette little girl entries!
Xstrangiato: It was after the jump. On the ground. The sunset picture was taken while jumping. We don't have glasses or parachute and no wind!
No parachute??How did you survive!!?I see it now - After you pointed it out to me and I looked at it in a larger size!Obviously the 'Illusion' part is too strong!!Nice job - Fooled me!
Hey those aren't benches, or are they...What the heck is a bench anyway?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BenchOh..."Bench (furniture), a piece of furniture, which typically offers seating for several people."Do they really have those?
LeeStar: Hmm... are chairs allowed? (looks like it by many of the entries!) Or just benches?
It will be a sad commentary indeed if 2 stacked/nested chairs win this - Lets hope the voting accomplishes what the host is unwilling to do.Perhaps a single stool will end up as the winner?
Bench (furniture), a piece of furniture, which typically offers seating for several people.Hey, look it up if you don't believe me.
I guess shots of the floor would have been equally welcome to this poorly moderated challenge? Fountains, small boulders, cut off tree stumps still rooted in the soil...The fender and rear deck surface of cars..? Bumpers...Cinder blocks, paint cans...Lets see - Have I left anything out?People sit on all manner of things - Some even sit on BENCHES - Which are unfortunately not well represented in the entries.
Looks rather orderly to me...
Chris Angell - Mind Freak!!He has mastered levitation!I think the bird is using mirrors to make it look like he is floating...I can see the wires too.
Extraordinary timing...A particular moment in time...Create an opportunity to study a frozen action that can only be captured due to...Extraordinary timing.So even though EVERY single shot would seem to fulfill this challenge by depicting a solitary moment in time, it is possible not every shot is a 'time study' kind of shot, know what I mean Verne?
...a frozen action which could only be captured due to...Extraordinary timing.Extraordinary timing?Only captured due to Extraordinary timing...Lets reflect on that a moment or two.
Amazing how much elevation she is getting over that pole - Nice shot and it even fits the challenge, how cool is that!!
I doubt this image could have been capture over and over again over the course of say...2 weeks or so.Extraordinary timing to be sure!
That's pretty darn funny...A frozen action which could only be captured due to...Extraordinary timing!Pretty darn Extraordinary timing!
"Show me a frozen action which could only be captured due to...Extraordinary timing."

It is one problem with an open jury...Any idiot can vote for what ever dumb ass reason they choose. Half stars for this shot, in this challenge indicate more about the voters than the shot.Don't know which of us 'should' have come in last...But thought your shot had a bit of edginess, humor and was a valid display of public affection - Which was more than could be said of some of the other entries.
Was that a bit of HDR giving the buildings the unusual tonality?
Put a "Title Watermark on the photograph itself..."
