Challenge has finished
Bullet with butterfly wings - Smashing Pumpkins - Despite all my rage I'm still just a rat in a cage... The photo must contain at least 2 out of the following 3 elements: Smashing (adj.), Wing and Rage. This is a tribute to another fundamental band and a hymn of the nineties. Perhaps it is not a coincidence that this song's video ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DowTH201wI ) is a clear homage to one of the most fundamental photo reports of the century: the Workers of Serra Pelada by Sebastião Salgado - a goldrush almost on the turn of the 21st century: http://www.girafamania.com.br/montagem/fotografo-sebastiao-salgado.html

27th place (joint)
P-ublic D-isplay of A-ffection. A SMASHING shot of a fly violating another fly. Feel the RAGE from both WINGed perspectives (victim and aggressor). ;-) Well of course... that's open to interpretation.
