Very nice shots Rafael, Cory and Carolyn (and others). I also liked Maureen's oranges. I felt like I could just reach out and grab on of them :-).
Thanks again, teekay, for another fun contest. I think you called it pretty right on. A tough one for sure!

I actually found that tree with the face at the same place I took photos for contest #499 (Creative effects - straight out of camera).
If I hadn't had oral surgery this week (with some complications), I would have found something better to shoot this week. This shot was taken using in-camera HDR.
I would have preferred not using HDR for this contest.

Wow!
Thank you, teekay, I'm honored with a first place among those beautiful photos. 'Tired' was my favorite, and I'm glad I was not choosing second and third places from the others.
I think those spheres were conceived as a sort of sculpture, but people is not discouraged from climbing them.
The base is as hard as it looks, pure concrete and iron; and some of the iron rods in the spheres have dangerous open ends too.

4:00 AM here, I will start a new challenge today, as soon as possible.

Congratulations to Raphael and Cory and thanks to Teekay for hosting and judging - very tough job well done.
I too loved Tired. Raphael, I think that I would have heart failure if my girls decided to climb that structure.
Thanks for the kind words about my staircase, the Glasgow Lighthouse is tucked away down a pedestrian lane in the city centre and houses Exhibitions, a Charles Rennie Mackintosh Centre, gift shop and cafe. The staircase is in the Mackintosh tower, which once climbed gives you the most stunning views of the city. http://www.thelighthou​se.co.uk/about/about-us

Congrats Raphael, Cory, and Carolyn! Beautiful images! Thanks for hosting teekay, and for the tough job of picking a winner! It's been close to a year since I've been able to participate here, although I've been following along. Great to be able to "play" again!

Thanks teekay for hosting and judging, and for the second place nod. There are some great photos this week! I thought it was going to be tough to beat Car's Spiral Staircase.

Nice to see you back Michael - the funny thing is, I took that picture of the staircase that day we met you and Barbara :-)

Still enjoying this week's entries. It was a most interesting topic, teekay.
Car, I was concerned for the kid near the top. The others were kept close to ground by their mothers, but that one was apparently alone. Not a safe place for the kids, really, but I have not heard of accidents there.
Nice photo of the staircase and nice to read that you and Michael met each other there. Welcome back to the challenges, Michael.

This was a long day. After a small delay, the new challenge is already open for photos.
