Challenge #437 - My Other Hobby
_______________

This is as simple as it gets. All of us have more than one hobby. I would like to see a photo that best represents your other hobby as you would like others to view it.
_______________



First of all I would like to thank each of you for your entries. It’s always fun to find out a little more about folks and what they enjoy.

BobsYourUncle – Nice shot, I like the reflections in the windows. Camping is something we have always enjoyed.
Ispriluc – Beautiful sky, nicely exposed. Love the pattern of the shadows.
OldWorldMonkey – Conveys your message nicely. I do lots of camping and grew up riding. My father owned a Honda franchise.
Teekay – Nice shot, I like how the sky and water seem to fade into one. I spent lots of time in the Atchafalaya Basin fishing and birding by default.
mrshobden – The photo left no doubt about your hobby. I would enjoy a glass of that wine while viewing all of these photos. Well done.
Northants nin – Nice photo with great reflections. I also like that you pushed the boundaries with the vignette.
OhLook – A well-executed photo of a game I think everyone loves. I like your use of DOF here.
Pwdieter – Nice fly tying and good, colorful photo. The tying I gave up on and I struggle while fly fishing.
Corythosaurus – Good shot, pun intended. You have managed to capture another of my hobbies as well as the hobby of my younger brother. I’m the one who doesn’t care what time it is.
marie – The food looks as good as the photo. Cooking is just one more of my hobbies. Good job.
Raven – Nice photo of a colorful and tasty collection. Woodworking is something I have no talent at. Being married to a true Cajun gal I have lots of experience with hot sauce.

Now for the winners:

3rd place – Maureen Souza – Nice set-up and well executed. Your photo conveys the message without a lot of clutter.

2nd place – RichRoad – The bike on the ground, the splintered sign and the simple bench all convey the message. Mountain biking is a tough sport and this photo portrays it well.

Winner – CMOats – The fence grabbed my attention, the blue sky and green grass kept my attention. The horse made me want to pull out my wallet and go find me one. Great shot that makes me want to ride off into the sunset.
