Here's mine. Following suit. This one is 5 years old and was taken in the Great Smokey Mountains - one of my favorite places in the world. :)

My wife probably knows exactly where we were, but all I can remember is that we were driving along at sunset while we were touring the Northwest. I think it was in South Dakota.

MAn dM, those Smokie Mountains do look pretty cool. If you look close enough in your picture, you can see a hillbilly bottling some white lightning fresh from his still.

I've actually got one very similar to dM's from Asheville NC of a sunset over the smokey's. Nearly looks the same minus the tree. I enlarged it to a 22 x 38 and it hangs on my living room wall in a pewter frame. It's been one of my fave pics for years. Nearly makes me homesick for the Carolinas.

Yep. This comp is gonna be tight. What is it with us and trees/shadows. I hope a lot of members vote on these because this is one of the better comp re: the entries to date. Hope we can at least double these entries with the same quality before the competition is over. There's already 4 that I am torn between voting for.

I typically try to judge here on content, but I think I'm going to have to delve into techniques to figure this one out. I'm glad to finally see some entries roll in! Does this mean I'm picking the next topic, too? :lol:

To be honest, it's a good topic entry UPSGuy. You did good with this.

I am very keen on seeing more competitions with two topic titles though so as to expand on the type of entries. I am also keen on letting the competition winner choose the next topic too like we used to.

Hey thanks guys. Nope its not mine. I've killed my two attempts at Bonsai trees and finally decided that I don't have what it takes for that hobby.

The photo subject is actually a prize winner from a local club competition.

That is an awesome bonsai, both the tree itself as well as the photo. That reminds me so much of the "miniature" photo manipulation comp that dM put out about a year ago.

I never thought much of Bonzai trees until i started hearing that some sold for tens of thousands of £/$'s

Could be tempted to spend some time on a bonzai tree in the hope i am good enough to make an income out of it. I'd be a professional bonzai tree pruner...awesome!

Actually, your entry is eligable because the topic title isn't just "trees", it is "shadows" too. There is a shadow on the leaf of the plant, so to me that makes it eligable.
