I have hope that people are going to get this. The circle is from my mamiya RB which I shot through. I lined up the circle with the forks. Shooting through the mamiya however produced an out of focus "landscape" for the circle. I wanted that because I felt the shades and the shapes where more important than in focus items. I don't how this will go over, probably like a lead ballon.

post challenge.
Thanks for all the comments!!!

I certainly get it!
THe idea is brilliant because I had this very idea ;) ... I shot through a Canon AE1. I was too shy to enter it. This one may have been more successful if the subject didn't line up with the view finder. I think that confuses it a bit - especially since the forks are almost unrecognizable. Still - kick-butt idea! ;)

Here's what I had going on:' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/38032/120/804034.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/38032/120/804034.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I guess I just don't get it, probably just me.

I know it's a completely different shot, but it reminds me so much of ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1040/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_793073.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1040/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_793073.jpg', '/') + 1) . '. I'll have to come back to it and look at it fresh :)

I like the softness of this. The blue hue is very relaxing and soothing. I like the uniform lines (forks?). Very interesting abstract.

This is very cool looking, but why is it so small?

This is kind of cool and elusive. I like the abstractness.

O.K., pretty and smooth. Nothing really grabs, though.
