142?! There could be a second prize for most viewed competition photo!

Cost me $50 to see the dr for about 5 mins. All he did was prescribe happy pills and make sure I didn't have a concussion!

And I'll agree with you re Lord of the Rings and rugby!!

Well I enjoyed this, hope you all did too. Thanks for being great sports in what could be a regular competition.

To weed out the entries I did the following:
I gave them all two points. If the same subject was found, the pic lost a point, if the same treatment was found it lost a point, and if a similar shot in subject and treatment was found it lost both points and was knocked out straight away.

Then I looked at all the ones still in (with one or two points) and awarded the one with the most photographic merit as the winner.

The shortlist was

K's Tomatoes this was finally ruled out because it was too similar in look to the one Heather found.

Heather B's Mouse in a lamp...there's definitely nothing like that around and very abstract, but not quite there.

So to the winner....
Barbara's contact lens on finger. Heather and K found contact lenses, but not like this...very creative.
Well done Barbara and thanks all for the fun comp.

I was thinking about this challenge I remembered from ages ago while at work today and decided to try something different. (Has taken me all night to find this original forum discussion - only to discover it was actually a competition and I am waaaaay overdue!)

Anyway, I still think it's a fab idea and just wondering if anybody else is up for the challenge just for fun?
