In this time we went by scooter around the peninsula to the southern side to see the sun. We arrived there in a little hut where we stayed. The next noon we discovered the sun! It stayed for about half an hour before it setted again but I was never that happy to see the sun.
Photo was scanned from a slide taken with my analog Praktica SLR in February 2002. Not reworked.

What I love at this picture is also that it shows the frosty cold outside and the warm shelter inside at the same time with the frost pattern at the window.
* As with Sun set at Osorno, this is a scanned slide that [LaBlanca] took with [her] analog Praktica SLR

No photoshop in the image, bit of lens flare from sun as I didn't have time to find my lens hood before taking the shot.

Honorable Mention 1: Boyo (20 points)

Maspalomas, Gran Canaria by Boyo

As the sun was setting a ship sailed right past the beach and the El Faro lighthouse. I wanted to get a shot with both the ship and the lighthouse in the same picture, but I couldn't focus looking straight into the sun. Fortunately some clouds drifted in and blocked the sun just long enough for me to take the picture. As a result the photograph has little color in it and it resembles a photo as they looked back when photography was just invented. The ship and the lighthouse give it an old world image, as if to symbolize how discovery was done before modern day instruments and satellite navigation existed.

All pictures were taken with a Minolta Hi-Matic GF.

Then finally in the evening the clouds went aside to give the view free to this beauty. Removed fluffs with digiKam.

I thought, I make a gallery with thumbs of all entries, not to loose any of them with the time when the image links will start to fail.

February 2008 Contest: "Winter"

As I said in the relating thread already, we are proud to announce with 9 pictures even more gallery enties than last time. Its a sign of the great quality of photos we had. Im really happy about it and I hope it continues in that way.

Like in the last contest, there are 5 winning categories (first, second and third place and 2 honorable mentions). Where we have 2 entries for each of place 2, 3 and the both honorable mentions.

But a contest lives with a lot of submissions and with many posters voting, so everyone who took part can feel as a winner!!!

Congratulations!!!
