Great challenge Jim (Raven)
congratulations teekay, Sibil, JimAskew
teekay's Seashell was my favorite too.
Mi entry is an old archive photo from my first Por1, processed in PhotoShop and stripped the exif info as was my usual workflow at that time.
Below, the exif, copied from an almost identical process of the picture in Light Room.RAW file.

Canon PowerShot Pro1 | fixed lens @23mm | 1/20 | f/3.5 | ISO 50

With this challenge, the first thing I thought of was a sunflower to show the golden ratio / Fibonaci numbers in the seeds array. No sunflowers in the archives.
Then a thought in fractas and OhLook mentioned them, luckily before any search in the Hard Drives.

Then I found this green 'thing' that was an alternative entry in other challenges, but never was posted because I have no idea of its name although it growed in my own garden. In our city, we have 'plants', 'trees', 'flowers' but we do not learn the names of them. :(

By the way, OhLook, your coaliflower reminded me of Mandelbrot sets / fractals that I used long time ago (in the 70s) under the direction of Mesisas Maiguashca (external link) as part of his show of electronic music. Maiguashca is a well known (and controversial) ecuadorian musician that lives and works in Germany.

BTW it's really good to see you back in a challenge with your Pro1, Rafael, and thanks for keeping the winners list up to date all these years:-)

I always check and enjoy the challenges, but I comment usually when I have my own entry uploaded.

Canon EOS Rebel XT, EF-S 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 II, EF 50mm f1.8 II, EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM, speedlite 430EX, basic filters set.

Great contest Jim with some really fantastic entries. Congratulations to teekay and Sibil and thanks for the 3rd place nod. I really liked OhLook's fractal photo :-).

My photo was taken at a display of rocks and minerals booth at a local Antique Mall. I was testing out my new G5X in a variety of lighting situations.

Jim -- I keep the Leica D-Lux 7 in the Glove Box just in case!
7D, G5X, 10-22MM EF-S, 17-55MM f/2.8 EF-S IS, 24-105MM f/4 EF L, Leica D-Lux 7

Thanks, Jim!

PRONOUN ADVISORY: OhLook is a she. | A FEW CORRECT SPELLINGS: lens, aperture, amateur, hobbyist, per se, raccoon, whoa, more so (2 wds.), shoo-in | IMAGE EDITING OK
