I saw this more as snail vs bird until a jet smoked through and blew 'em both into the weeds.

But what do I know????

Slow and steady wins the race, then wastes no time grinding salt-caked glass in your open wounds.

wow, what a race! Love it! The only problem I see is that the plane seems to have flown in the opposite direction -> to the right. But who cares :)

That's ridiculous. Fortunately.

Often we forget how one learns & sees as a child.
A characteristically child like vision - primary & illustrative.

this is hilarious. I love how unapologetically difficult and unpleasant this photo is... only to pay off with a wonderful allegorically rich joke.

Thank you for breaking all of the "rules" here. Nicely done.

oh cool. is this a snail vs a bird? and the string is supposed to be the finish line while at the same time looking like a very straight cloud trail? awesome - you got me to look and analyze!

"Wither, midst falling dew,
while glow the heavens with the last steps of day,
far, through their rosy depths, dost thou pursue
thy solitary way?

Vainly the fowler's eye
might mark thy distant flight to do thee wrong,
as, darkly seen against the crimson sky,
thy figure floats along."

From "To a Waterfowl" by William Cullen Bryant.


This is a wonderful, wonderful image. Well done!

Nice feel. The sharpening here adds interest. As does the Eskimo with the gun located in the corner. Definitely meets the challenge parameters.

Crap...I wish I could fav this. Unlike the previous commenter, I got this immediately...pity for her I guess. This is a shot to be savored, and not a tale for the the slow of mind or for those who insist on following rules.

I saved this 'til last because I'm not quite sure what's going on here. But, whatever it is, there's way too much lost space in this image to be effective.
