You all took up this challenge with reckless aplomb, and I thank you for it! I love everything you've submitted; such a wonderful mix too.

So, first some words and then the big reveal:

Benitoite: Several different wet surfaces, all presenting possible danger if not approached with caution. Wonderfully laid out in an interesting triptych compilation. Well presented and a cool title!

Chris: Danger is all around in your wonderful comp, which also conveys motion with your 1/30th sec shutter speed. You composition pulls me into the very danger you have presented. I am right there, possibly seconds away from...

Fantastic, if reckless, photograph.

teekay: Yep, kids doing reckless things. Kids and danger go hand-in-hand like water and oil, fire and water and Ike and Tina Turner. You froze your subject in that "what am I doing" moment. I use to be reckless when I was young, but nowadays the extent of my reckless behavior peaks with having two cups of coffee instead of one...

Well captured and the spirit of youth recklessness.

sandwedge: Great moment, great title, perfect composition, but dang all of those branches. Nothing to do with you, just another worthy composition nearly obscured by nature's reckless branch growth. There is a reason for Darwinism, and your comp proves that notion.

Don: Stop making me laugh! I can understand the axe, but what's up with those candelabras??? I like the indoor picnic setting, with mood lighting and butterflies in the background. It's nice to see those performing said procedure are passing the laugh phase and heading into tears mode. Thank you for the laugh!

EnglishBob: Heck no! What, did Yosemite valley get over-booked and these "hoodlums of danger" got the cheap site to camp? I don't even want to know what that bucket is for. Reckless, yes. Good presentation on the theme, yes. Well done.

Honourable mention---sandwedge

Runner-up---teekay

The Winner---ssidiv3r (Chris)

Your comp won me over by pulling me into the frame.


Once again, thank you for a great turnout! Think I'm going to have that third cup of coffee....

Congratulations to ssdiv3r and thanks. Jason, for the #2 spot - and for taking the time to comment on each photo. I think it encourages people to enter these challenges when they see that judges do indeed take time to consider and appreciate each entry.

Yes, Voaky, please do tell what's with the candelabrae (?) in your shot. There certainly seems something in the poor guy's pants that needs the axe, so maybe some sort of exorcism is underway as well?:twisted:

Congrats Chris.

The El Cap shot was heavily cropped from a 500mm (800mm effective) capture, they were a long way up!

Thanks so much Jason. New challenge up and ready to go, HERE! I've never posted up a challenge before; I hope the theme (and these challenges in general) gets enough interest.

Thank you teekay. I agree that including reasoning behind the choice is great since takes thought and effort.

Thank you.

Climbing like that seems like so much fun but I don't think I'd be able to get any sleep dangling around THAT high up.


New challenge up and ready to go, HERE!

Whoa! Jason and Chris, I've just noticed that you have changed the camera requirements for these challenges BACK TO DSLR after I had thought there was agreement that these challenges had been opened to ALL digital cameras in an attempt to encourage more entries.-?

So I should have been disqualified from the "Reckless behaviour" challenge as my entry was taken with a Panasonic FZ100, not
a DSLR - I had not noticed that you had changed the rules back to the old ones, Jason.:-(

PLEASE, guys, open these to ALL digital cameras again so more can participate!
