Wow, where was that one taken Mojo?

I have narrowed down a list of song titles that I liked and have to choose which one to recreate Got 2 as favourites, just have to work out how to do them!

Took it whilst on a road trip up Western Australia, we just saw it on the side of the road and had to stop. There were quite a few trees bent over by the wind but that one was the most striking by a long shot. Took me a while to think of a song title for it but as soon as I saw that Dylan one I thought it was perfect!

It's a much, much stronger round this time.

This is the best I've come up with for now, but if I manage to catch something better, can i withdraw this one and put something else up?

This competition looks like fun. I'm not nearly as good a photographer as some people here, but I like to take pictures when I see interesting or cool looking things.

Here's my effort for song titles.

Welcome to Paradise - Green Day

(Just a quick note of explanation. This kids' play area is in a bit of Scarborough called Paradise. There's even a sign for 'Paradise Play Area', see below, which I think is brilliant. I love the juxtaposition of the children's playthings with the adjacent graveyard!)

PS - If you're interested in competitions, then click the link in my sig and help get the Empire Script Challenge back up and running.

Agreed! If this was taken on a phone, that is damned impressive. It's a great photo.

Thanks. It's the Samsung Galaxy S II which has an 8MB camera. With that and my other portable I'm happy to leave my SLR at home and have been enjoying taking photos again.

Here are a few details enlarged to 100%.

Very tenuous, I only include it as I took this picture last week on Skomer Island and it makes me laugh.

I'm putting as vote forward for Sharkboy. It is a very powerful photo which captures the scene very well. I also like the sky.

Quite a few good pictures this time and it is a difficult choice.

Lots of quality this round makes it very hard to pick.

But I'm going to go for Chief Wiggum with Sanchia a close second.

A very hard choice this round but my vote goes to the visual splendour that is Puffin Song by jonson,a lovely shot,right place,right time and well composed (and posed).
Second place I'll go with sharkboy's This Is The Sea,a photo Ansel Adams would be proud of,adds a bit of class to the round.I'd like to see a bigger version.

Do we put in both a first and second choice or are folk just doing that for shits and giggles? If we pick two then first would go to Chief Wiggum and second to Hobbitonlass.

Vote has to go to Mojo - Idiot Wind. Really love the framing of it.

But I would add that this has been a superb round, was difficult to choose one.
