Default Speed Challenge #30

OK, here is the next challenge. I was kicked out of the house today so my wife could clean house!

I took this shot for the next challenge I won. I didn't realize it would be today. The funny thing is was this shot was taken one handed while talking to her on the cell phone with the Tamron 17-35mm. It was in a new trail that I wanted to try today. Nice thing about this one is I don't have to worry about dodging bullets.

I personally like to leave these wide open to help feed the creative juices. Use your imagination and let me see what you can do. Any thing from what you would not expect to see in this scene to anything that may have been here. I did spot a gator, I would guess more than 12 foot long on the other side of the island. The problem, he spotted me before I could get a clear shot.

Good luck and I wish you all the best.

BTW, Limited to two entries and will be judged in one week (Sunday, January 15, 2006)

Here is the small version...


and a link to the larger version.

Here is my 3 minute attempt. I could have spent more time, but I smell dinner...and I'm hungry

All I did was some painting, using this tutorial I posted earlier:
