This gave me a little chuckle! Thanks for all the great judging and feedback. I think I am just an opportunist. I actually am a bumbling student and don't own any of the locations or props I use but instead go with the mantra of if you don't ask you don't get!

If I ever get the chance to jump three girls into a ferrari I will remember the tips!

Congratulations to Deep Diver. Do you have a lighting setup to share?

Thank you fcortese...outstanding critique!

deep diver, that is a really great shot that I've come back to a number of times. The colour range, tight frame and detail have a huge appeal to me. Well done and thanks for the post.

fcortese -- you did a great job judging and offering feedback on a fantastic group of pictures. Thank you for the first place.

I would share the lighting setup if there was one. It was a sunny day, I put a black cloth over a lawn chair, set up the sax, put a piece of sheet music on the opposite arm, and shot. The only photoshopping was to remove some stray pieces of grass, crop, and adjust levels. Sometimes, low tech is best.

The new theme is up at http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1490445 I've extended it one day because of my family obligations for Thanksgiving.

Congrat's to all, some good lateral thinking in what repetition could be and how to represent that.

Mine was actually a close-up of the base of a pelicans neck where it meets its body. To me it looked almost like a big school of fish darting all over the place when I imported it.

Have to love the low tech approach! It worked perfectly for you.
