Challenge: Technology Underwraps (Expert Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-50D
Lens: Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM

My first expert challenge. (I think) Well at least it's the first expert challenge that I can remember actually taking advantage of the rules. I used 6 shots. Had a blast i just wish I would have given my self more time.

Hopefully I can get around A 6.2. I would consider that a success.

***** UPDATE ******

Thanks for all the kind comments!

The best part of this challenge is seeing my son Daniel on the frontpage. It was the only shot of him that I was able to get. I actually got it by accident when I was setting up my lights. The chainsaw was a bit heavy for him, hence the facial expression and the lean.

Daniel was sitting on the couch in my office on the morning the voting started and he looked over at my screen and noticed himself in the pencil sharpener and came over to the screen to get a closer look. As he was looking at the picture he had a puzzled look on his face. Then he turned to me and asked, "How did I get in there?"

I told him that I shrunk him! Then he really got concerned and began to look at himself as if to see if he was regular size or still shrunk.

Another great memory created through a challenge.

A great idea which is kept simple for maximum impact.

Definitely meets the challenge and one of the best of the bunch, IMO. A piece of technology (pencil sharpener) works with a kid running a chainsaw. Very good idea and well done. The only gripe would be the shavings coming out the "hole" that we're seeing through, but that's minor. Well done and I hope it scores very high. 8
