New challenge and after much thought and throwing away some ideas I have decided to go with "Jagged edge".

I'm not sure the last time we have covered this one if ever but it seemed as good as any so the task for the coming week is to find something with a jagged.edge either natural or created I.e. like my example below which was definitely self influenced. Smile

The simple rules:

1. The challenge is just for fun
3. Only one upload per member, uploaded in this thread.
4. If you win, you host the next week’s challenge - see note below.


Hosting involves starting a new challenge thread (with or without an example image - your choice) - and coming back at the end of the week to choose a winner.

An example:

Two well-used hacksaw blades and an equally well-used wood saw blade as the meat in the sandwich.

Well, all good things come in three's and this seems to be the standard number for the challenges at the moment. Now before the winner is announced, a line or two based on each entry.

CB - I see letters of the alphabet in there, possibly a V, W, X and Y at a push. More teeth than a shoal of Piranhas. Definitely one to handle carefully.

Malc - I did mention Piranhas but this one looks a bit like two Sharks on the ocean. There are always teeth in Jaws too. Actually, the first time I SAW Jaws I couldn't HACK it and spent the night hiding under the bed covers.

Andrew - It may be foil but still looks like it could take a finger off if handled incorrectly. Maybe it is possible to cut and wrap a sandwich at the same time.

Okay I'm guessing that nobody needed to make use of the sharpen filter this week and onto the winner. A difficult decision and after a little bit of flicking back and forth between each image I am going to have to go with Malc's shark-like saw blades and thanks for bringing back memories of a classic thriller.

So well done to Malc and many thanks everyone for taking part this week.

Well done Malc, you certainly got your teeth into the challenge. Thanks Eddie for the fu this week.
