Well done everyone.  I even liked clover kicker's entry.

This one was actually hard to decide.  Good job!

I voted for clover kicker.. by Driusan (4.00 / 2) #3 Fri Jan 11, 2008 at 01:41:51 PM EST
Because it claimed to be a joke option. Then I clicked on it and discovered that it was a good shot.

Fucking cheater.

there are lots of cool images by Kellnerin (4.00 / 2) #4 Sat Jan 12, 2008 at 03:57:02 AM EST
but I think ana's might be the coolest, in part due to being at the intersection of natural phenomenon, man-made, and ephemeral. Also, because the thought of being in the middle of making dinner and going "Stop! I have to take a picture of this for the PFC!" makes me smile.

I voted for Driusan, glamorgan and Farlukar.

I absolutely love Driusan's grimy shot. Glamorgan's quite nice (but haven't we seen that bridge before? ;-) ) and Farlukar's photo got my vote for its sheer weirdness.

I also liked nfb's, but found the white triangle in the lower right corner too distracting from the effect.

Different bridge by glamorgan (4.00 / 1) #7 Sun Jan 13, 2008 at 06:25:58 AM EST
My night photo bridge was a pedestrian bridge in Calgary.  This bridge is a rather large vehicle bridge spanning the Panama Canal......

I seem to have developed a bridge theme, it seems.  I'll make sure to change it up for the next contest.

since I've got four major bridges I'd have to choose from

Mine was just as boring in person!

Much better in person by glamorgan (4.00 / 2) #19 Thu Jan 17, 2008 at 06:33:24 AM EST
Not that I think I did a bad job with my shot, but 'in person' was sailing through the panama canal on a cruise ship.  I spent the canal day on the top deck, lying in the sun, reading/sleeping, and enjoying the occasional cerveza.  I was able to take the shot from the comfort of my lounge chair.

Sure beats the cube I'm currently sitting in....

wow by Kellnerin (2.00 / 0) #16 Wed Jan 16, 2008 at 04:01:24 PM EST
I don't think I've gotten that kind of endorsement ever for a WFC, and I like to think I have more ski||z in that area than this one. Actually, I thought the diary was better than the picture.

I'm shocked to be anywhere close to TurboThy (who takes, like, real photos or something) and previous winner glamorgan. My entry was mostly luck. So much so that it almost feels like cheating. But thanks :)
