OTF Challenge 114 Results (drum roll, please...)
With the voting phase for this Challenge coming to a close, we bring to you the results of our most recent Challenge! Along with submitting the image garnering the most points (and thus bragging rights!); the OTF member providing the image gets to pull together Challenge 115 for us, and lead us to get out and about with camera in hand to capture images we want to share on the forum for the benefit of us all.
The Top Pick for Challenge 114: Animals; at work, play or zzzz... is:
"Skippy Having A Drink" by Dan Nelson
I really had to take a look at this one, and am still trying to decide whether indeed it's alive or a statue (but it's not stuffed with fluff, so it's good). Very realistic, and it promped one to study it.
The theme of this Challenge was one that everyone could have jumped into and submitted images for consideration. Whether cats, dogs, koalas, horses, mules, sheep, myriads of wildlife, animals are all about us. They serve as companions, friends, guides, sources of entertainment, sentinels; the list could get quite lengthy
if I keep going. There's actually quite a bit of range addressed by the submitted images; farm animals, show animals, pets and companions, zoo animals, wildlife, and as an expression of art by man (and has been for untold ages of history).
Immediately following we had three images in a photo finish at the wire; and it revealed that all 3 had the same vote tally:
"Even Dogs Need a Teddy" by Shrew'sCam
Your daughter picked a good one. Adorable image!
"The Queen, the Kid and the Horse" by KimR
Beautiful horses, cute kids, parade queens on the 4th of July, it doesn't get any better than this.
"Come on in, the water's fine" by rt22306
This tiger (quite agitated on a 100 degree F. day) appears even less friendly and unwilling to share in shots taken with a superzoom and 30x.
The gallery thumbnails for the Competition have been rearranged to show the top pick, and the group of close behind images. The other images are in random order.
Thanks to all who participated by voting, and for those members who submitted images for the Challenge!
The Last of the Yashicans.
