I think the yellow part in the middle sets it all off, especially with the subject of the challenge. Really cool picture.

Here's an entry that may qualify. Three Welcome Swallows at Bibra lake in a southern suburb of Perth. Taken with a K20D and Bigma at 500m and F8. DOF is still so shallow that this picture shows a progressive contrast in focus. Perhaps next time I'll try F11 or so?

I withdrew my first entry because I couldn't get the contrast I wanted without blowing the highlights so, I decided on this one. (changed again) After looking through some photos I took yesterday, I decided to settle on this one. (honest!):G

Hi GW, This is only my opinion, but I would look for something else without so many things in the image. It is too much to look at without a central focus item. Well, the fence is the focal point, but it gets lost in the rest of the image. Maybe get closer to the fence and only get a few of the sections. Or, the hardware on the fencing.

Anyway, just my thoughts.

GW, I went back to your photo to see the windmill I missedin the fence image and voila! That's a good one. Just what I meant. One subject with contrast against the light sky.
