RuthC: Licorice sweets.
summicron: agree with slicer guess. nice shot.
slicer sounds good
looks like a roof - very interesting architecture
bluemoonman: A chrome Mannequin?
detail of a fresco?
The Mick: The Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri? I've never been there, but I bet it's a spectacular site. Nice perspective, btw!
nice arrangement and good shot
Ann Chaikin: Reflection in water on its side.
frozen food under red light - but no real idea what kind of ... maybe fish
tiffany shade from below
office light / reflector, agree with the Englishman
I agree with the gear wheel. Difficult!
good story, egg carton, without the ideas below I was lost.
I would say too thin for picture frames, and this side looks like it was cut ... maybe a fan?
K5II/IIs sure nice cams in almost every aspect. As a K5 owner to me the main difference in spec is AF performance in low light. I don't really get used to the phase detect FFocus issue, always need to use Liveview in critical light as a workaround (using contrast AF). Pentax never fixed that on the K5. Now if I supposed the FF issue has been addressed on the updates, I still wouldn't buy - don't like the thought of spending so much for a fix.But for everyone else who can afford the new K5 I think it is a good buy.
All of Joel's entries show the same tell-tale pattern with the surprisingly high bar on the right side. This has nothing to do with coincidence, statistically this is impossible. It makes me wonder that Carlos is defending this guy, it puts him on the same side.Isn't there a possibility for dpreview to step in if there is such obvious cheating? This is discouraging for everyone who has been participating in challenges in honesty, and I am sure this is the vast majority.
by the way the model on this photo from don quijote is the same as the model on carlos' examples posted for this challenge, and she's wearing the same clothes. so it was his own picture or his buddy's, which to me makes no difference regarding the 5 times "10" votes which are statistically proving a fake because of the totally distortioned distribution.
