This week's DSLR Speed Challenge #109 topic is:
"Litter"


From last week's challenge I realized there is a lot of litter out there. For this week's challenge, I want you to show me litter, or garbage that is worth showing, or tells a story... around your neighborhood, at a nearby park, in the street, or even in your house. Take a picture of what people really don't want to see, but make it worth seeing.

Your subject is limited only by your imagination and creativity.


=============== =========

Standard Rules apply:
Photo Submissions:

1. Camera - Any Canon DSLR Camera
2. Time - any on-topic photo taken at any time is eligible, although photos that have won other competitions should NOT be entered.
3. Size - Please see the Image posting rules.
4. Post-Processing - do whatever you like and the host will decide if it works.
5. Posting -
* ONE PHOTO per photographer in each challenge.
* Photo Name in the message subject line.
* Camera model & lens used.
* Notes -- post brief EXIF data including ISO, shutter speed and aperture used.
6. Commenting - No commenting during challenge. When the posting is closed and a winner has been declared, comments can be made in this thread.
7. Have FUN!

One challenge every week, on the following schedule:

* New Topic - After winner is declared.
* Posting Starts - Right after topic is announced.
* Posting Ends - 8:00 PM EST USA Time, Monday August 3rd, 2009.
* Winner from this competition decides the theme of the next one (and judges it for a winner) after this competition is closed

Why, I Otter...

In the midst of storm debris both man-made and natural, an otter lurks, looking for sustenance and wary of predators...

Contest is closed to new entries..

Sorry, I forgot this was closing last night and didn't pick a winner yet. I will try to finish it up sometime today during work :) without getting caught.

That way we can get onto the next contest :)

Thanks for all the entries... A few more less than expected, it didn't make it any easier though.

Flo - Stranded Slurpee.
That certainly does tell a story - that is one lazy person there... Sure it isn't on the ground yet, but a good wind and it will be.

monty28428 - Disgust
Nice capture - there is a look of disgust in the eye, even a bit of a frown if you look at it. I like it.

tonylong - Why I Otter...
Quite a mess of debris there. I like the shot, but the otter looks a little soft - it maybe just me though. Good job.

Jason C - unwanted
Nice shot. You obviously worked hard for that picture and climbed right down on the pavement. Incredibly shallow DOF! Good job on a technically difficult shot.

fryefoto - Pulling up the bag edge does NOT increase it's capacity.
Funny shot on so many levels - we have all been there trying to put off the inevetiable trip to the dumpster. Also it is fitting to see branding from that 'other' camera company in the trash :) Thanks for making me laugh.

John_B - Baseball Litter
Beautiful. That ball cover has seen better days. Better to end its useful life in green grass than forgotten in the bottom of a bag. I love the color.

My choices for the winners this week:
3rd - Jason C
2nd - monty28428
1st - John_B

Honorable mention goes to fryefoto. For making me laugh...

Congrats to all..
