POTN G-series Speed Challenge #614: Bragging Rights - Your Favorite Photo to Date for 2016.

What a wonderful set of entries this week. I figured you all would make this challenge difficult and you didn’t disappoint! I have been over and over these and have asked my wife to be a second set of eyes here.

Maureen Souza - After the Rain: Just a stunning and wonderful shot. I love the composition and the exposure is spot on! Wish I could be there right now.

OhLook - Leafcutter bee resting after pupation: A fantastic micro shot. The detail is amazing! He looks like he could jump right out of the screen! Please tell us how you made this amazing photo!

M_Six - Water Cannon: A great shot of a beautiful location! A reminder that after winter come the warmth of spring!

Trumper - Where I wanted to be with the person I was with :) : A beautiful beach scene at what appears to be a misty morning. Love the atmosphere!

Mathogre - Steppin' :Wow! How did you pull off this shot? I love the composition…it is original and most appealing!

CarloY - But, but, but... It's Supposed to Be Golden and Orange! : A cool misty morning in San Francisco! A beautiful twist on a classic photo. Well done!

I wish I could make them all 1st Place but the rules prohibit it so after much back and forth I have selected my favorites from the entries.

3rd Place: OhLook: Leafcutter bee resting after pupation
2nd Place: Maureen Souza: After the Rain
1st Place: Mathogre - Steppin'


So on the you Mathogre…the next challenge is yours :-)


And, welcome Graham to our merry band…hope to see you in our future challenges :-)

Omg. Thank you, Jim! I didn't expect it, especially given all of the other entries. Congratulations, Maureen and OhLook! I'll have something up later tonight for the next contest.

Kudos to Mathogre, Maureen, and OhLook (love that shot). Great images.

Jim, in your thoughtful and creative awards banner, how did you manage to reverse my shot? ;-)a:-P It's a mirror image of the original.

Oops! I didn't notice that :oops: PowerPoint got me big timevmad. My apologies :-). I usually grap a screenshot, crop it in PowerPoint, and size it for the awards screen. I must have flipped it some how in doing this? Again my apologies :-)

Fixed :-) I have discovered that if you grab a photo by the corner and shrink it inwards if you go too far it just reverses and expands in a reverse mode :rolleyes: Lesson Learned :lol:

Jim, good choice of topic–it allowed a lot of us to show off. All six photos are excellent in different ways. Congratulations to Graham; I wonder what your model is, a figurine, perhaps? Maureen, congratulations, and that has to be the Sierra behind the foothills, right?

Thank you! The bee began as an egg in one of these leaf packets.

A skunk (probably) dug up a recently constructed nest in our yard and scattered the soil. I had seen a mother leafcutter bee taking a leaf fragment to that spot a day or two before. When I found the damage, I collected the packets that looked intact enough to have eggs in them and buried them in a shallow pan of soil and sand. The pan went into an outdoor terrarium, an old fish tank that's used for insects in various life stages. One morning about seven weeks later, this bee was walking around on the terrarium floor. Insects are slow and fairly easy to manage for a few hours after they emerge from the pupal case. They don't fly yet. I shepherded the bee onto a large white card and moved the card to a railing for photos.

The amount of detail surprised me. The G15 rarely shows so much. Maybe the overcast sky helped.
