Not to DQ myself, but here’s one of mine from way back when.

Love the “lacework” in the wings…

Okay everyone!

 

I slightly changed the steps of the game.

The changes are highlighted in yellow:

 

Step 3.  Other members post an image that fits the description.  They may post one image per 24 hours.  Immediately after a new Image Boss is chosen, other members do not have to wait 24 hours from their last post to post a new image.

Step 4.  The Image Boss has 72 hours to choose their favorite image that has been posted by another member that has not broken any rules.  Whoever posted that image is the new Image Boss.  If a new Image Boss is chosen, go to Step 1.

 

We have actually been playing by these new rules all along.

I just wanted them to be explicitly written in the rules.

You're one to talk.

The rules to Image Boss are nothing compared to this.  :FACEPALM:

Damn, I’m going to have one Hell of a decision…

Can there be multiple IBs? Big Smile

Think I’ll let it go for like 71hrs just to see as many pix as possible. Big Smile

Okay, okay, I give!

Yokiamy’s the winner for this round.

Damn, it was so close, as they were all some really nice shots, but this one edged it out.

I’m not a fan of HDR, but this wasn’t too over-the-top as some pix I’ve seen. Framing’s nice, great colors… hey, we got a winner.

I bestow the IB crown on you…

Wow Keltex, that is one amazing macro!
Unbelievable to see the beauty of nature, especially all those small details which we (humans) are not able to create.

For the next round, i would like to see pictures of the sun!
You can choose whatever you like, sunset, sunrise, close ups of the sun, please enlighten this forum with some neutral sunlight Wink

I didn't realize Earth was so small compared to Jupiter and Saturn!

The actual smallness of Earth and all the planets compared to the sun is very hard to grasp:

Almost impossible to show correct:

Then think about how it all moves through space:

(scale waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay off but that is the problem, this is needed to visualize it.

Obligatory sunset photo, but this one over the East coast of Australia.
And not from an island.

Wow, many nice pictures posted, having a hard time to choose, since all pictures have nice details, especially keltex’s picture with the space ship.

Initially i would like to go for raccoons first image, but it seems that is NOT the sun!

But after some nice coffee, i’d say the new IB suncoaster (what’s in a name Big Smile )
