Challenge #269 - Egging you on...
This being springtime around here, with holidays that rejoice in life’s splendor and the Earth’s rebirth, when is a better time to bring up the subject of the egg? You got it…the egg. So show me 1, 2, a dozen or more omelets-to-be saying, "Cheese!" Scramble the Easter Bunny with your artistic wizardry. Crack a yoke. Bring’em on either white, brown, speckled, soft-boiled or dyed. As brittle as its shell might be, I want you to stretch both it and yourself. Take them out of context, do something that makes us go “Wow!”, giggle or wonder, “Hey, how’d they do that?”

I see that a long…long…time ago a similar challenge was presented by our pal teekay on the 5th such challenge, presented way back in March 2005. It’s time for a rebirth.


---------------
Eggsalent job folks. You did yourselves proud with sharp, colorful, provocative and even funny photos. Who could ask for anything more? I'm cutting to the chase tonight so here's how I see it:

Third place: teekay - Chicken Olympics: The Egg Luge: Loved this photo! Terrific setting...only wish the face showed the true terror a fragile being such as an egg might exhibit doing something so terrifying. I was thinking something like this: http://scrapetv.com …mages/comcast-g-force.jpg (external link) or better yet...this: http://www.deitchley.c​om …loads/2007/08/m​onkey1.jpg (external link)

Second place: afkenner - Don't crack under pressure The photo is perfectly sharp, nicely lit, and well presented. 'sides I'm a sucker for monkey wrenches.

Drum roll please...

First Place: IVOlution - Big huevo If you didn't win by shear volume, it must have been the wonderful composition, the dramatic lighting and sharpness. Nicely done, sunnyside up.

Congrats to all the others, your photos were right there with these guys. You made this a very difficult challenge to judge.

Oh my god, oh my god, I am the chosen one......yeaaaaaaaaaaa​aaaah! 1st timer!!!! Yuppiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!
I am so excited, LOL :)
I was actually, about to make something like mrshobden and then I saw her post and went grrrr....
This egg stand is in Boqueria market here in Barcelona and they always have "nicely presented eggs". First thing that went through my mind when I say the big huevo was: How did they do that !??! The lady told me, they did not do it, an ostrige did... :)
uh, I did not expect this...now I have to think hard for the next creative challange.
Congrats to afkenner and teekay and all the rest of the participants!
CarloY, what is that?? A flashlight behind an egg in the dark or something?
tnx guys, I go think now...

Congrats IVO, good show! Also congrats teekay and afkenner. Well done Mrshobden.

I also like rpolister's, but would have titled it "xeggs and ohs".;)

Thanks for hosting Kevan.
