Our spoiled cats with about 20 of their 87 millions toys, and yes I staged this.

Thank you and good job by all participants. I was real worried the first few days as no one entered. There are some real good entries but I can only name one winner.

This was a real hard decision for me and I really had a hard time picking my favorite. btw, you should see my lightroom library. All my photos are marked with 5 stars.


Here are the three best photos to match the topic to my eyes......

Third Place goes to "Simple Toys" by John_B
Brings back a few memories. Not exactly the same toys I had when I was a kid but pretty darn close. Simple picture, good composition.
I would have placed you higher but you did win two weeks ago and picked me as last weeks winner. :)

Second Place goes to "Mr. Potato Head" by monty28428
Just love the smile on his fast as it looks like he's getting away with someone's camera. Also love the blurred back ground.

First Place goes to "The Race" by Jason C
I don't know that much about the lens baby but I think it's supposed to throw your photo out of focus in some parts. It's out of focus (as I think it's supposed to be) but it looks clean and you know exactly what's going on. I really like this for some reason and I don't how to explain it.

I liked the Dr. Evil one but I don't know where it went. I hope I'm not losing my mind.


Jason C, as the winner you get to choose the next DSLR Speed Challenge topic and pick the winner next week. If you have any questions PM me
