I'd been stuck all week for any naturally occuring number besides zero and one and eventually had decided to give up on it. Pulling out of my driveway one morning, though, I noticed that the weird bush-tree of the side of my driveway bore an uncanny resemblance to the number eight when viewed from the right angle.

Was hard to take and balance the picture so the house behind the tree didn't show up and distract.

A gnarly, grizzled image, but it forms an 8... a good take on this challenge.

i like all the texture in this shot but there is way too much visual "noise" to really feel the "8"...it's obviously there but it's just not popping!

Nice perspective to find that 8. Are you lying on the ground? Nice shot. The sky is a little overexposed though.

This shot floors me. It feels like the trees are actually moving when I look at it. The only thing I wish is that the upper circle was better defined. Apart from that I don't have any ideas for making it any better.

Nice photo. Met the challenge. I don't like the overexposed areas much but I guess you would have lost a lot of the good detail if you hadn't done it this way.
