Congratulations to Trumper, M_Six, OhLook, and Maureen Souza on their outstanding entries! In fact all were outstanding entries this week. Great contest teekay and you had your work cut out to pick just three from this super set of entries.

My favorites were M_Six, Trumper, and OhLook. I loved the composition in M_Six's photo...where was that taken? It is an interesting array of seats for sure.

I appreciate all the comments on my photo. I made that two weeks ago at the Plainfield, IL Antique Show. There were dozens of old cars there and I had a blast capturing as many as I could. I agree cars from the 50's and 60's were much more fun and simpler; and were much more conducive to courting ;-)a I courted my wife for two years in a 1956 Chevrolet...and then she caught me :-)


Jim -- I keep the G5X in the Glove Box just in case!

My shot was taken from the riverwalk above the Chicago River by Michigan Ave. That was one of the river tour boats on the water below me. They had just opened it up to passengers, hence the availability of seating.

for me when i first saw M Sixes where to sit photo i thought that was the winner and that was before anyone else had posted.

Me too. After seeing that composition, I felt free to post with no risk of winning.

Congrats to the Winners this week.
Thanks Teekay for the contest and theme.

My Fav was Trumper's moody piece.


My shot was taken at 3:30pm -ish, so the lull between lunch and dinner. I think that whole shopping center lacks a 'bustle', but maybe that's a good thing... slow moving and relaxed outdoors.

Love that shot, Trumper. Very moody indeed. Kudos on the win.

.

Thank you :) for the record it is taken from Whitby North East Yorkshire [a lot of my photos come from there LOL :)] but it is impossible to take a bad photo in such a beautiful area.

I agree, and just wish I could revisit and stay a week with any of my current digital cameras. Last time I was there I just had a small film camera and took Kodachromes like this dusty old one I scanned into digital format years later. I expect you'll recognize the spot.

QUOTED IMAGE

It has some very interesting mood to it.

@teekay, re: Whitby North East Yorkshire
Imagine if you had a quad-drone and a camera somewhere between 45mme and 85mme hovering over the scene. Not too high.

Especially if it was out over the cliffs looking in. That would be a cool shot.

Oops, I'm thinking of Trumper's shot.
