This taught me to be persistent. My "assistants" got bored and wanted to sunbathe after about 6 shots (although they did think the lcd previews looked cool.)
I really think this could have been so much more. Yes, I wish the one noodle wasn't cutting out of frame. It's the best one I have. I really want to retry this one again the next time we go to the cottage so I can get it right.

I agree with Scooter that this is a cool shot, but the post processing is a little heavy handed. Looks like it was run through an HDR plugin. Still, respect for a fun shot.

It is the front of my in-laws' cottage on Lake Huron.

Congrats on the top 10!

Actually I like the one sticking out the left. It gives the feeling that there are even more that we're not seeing. When shots are too "perfect" in their placement, they look more artificial. It's better this way. :)

This is so much fun! It's hard to believe it's real. I think you've got a ribbon for sure.

Very cool. Almost feels like these are making Chinese letters.

If this isn't an HDR, what processing steps did you take? There are white and black halos around some areas indicative of HDR processing, though the Clarity slider in PhotoShop's Camera Raw can also cause this defect if you're not careful.

Nicely done ! Not sure how I like the one on the left sticking out of the frame though. Good score though!
