"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

My apologies. The rules said posting would end at midnight today GST - that was a typo. It should have been GMT. And I had forgotten that PST changed to PDT last night as the clock went forward to daylight savings time here.

So, to clarify: it closes at midnight GMT - in just over an hour, that's 5pm. here in BC.

RESULTS

Thanks everybody for all the good entries. I found this an extremely difficult challenge to judge. I'm sure everybody will have different opinions but I've done my best. Unlike most challenges, I could see no clear winners. Some fine entries had small flaws (in my totally biased opinion) that bugged me, such as out of focus objects that intruded, or overwhelming frames, or a tilted horizon that I couldn't ignore, but all were excellent interpretations of the subject.

I invite everybody to say what their choices would've been but in the meantime, without trying to critique or comment further, these are my (probably controversial) choices:

1. texkam
2. A tie between Scatterbrained and Paul B
3. airfrogusmc
