Enough fun, it's time to go back to work. Your challenge is to take a picture of tools or someone using their tools, and I'll be very liberal with this. Whatever your hobby or trade, there's probably something involved that's a tool to help you do what you like to do or need to do.....and I was just kidding about having fun! Enjoy, let the creativity flow and take your best shot!

Photo Submissions:

1. Camera - Any Camera
2. Time - any on-topic photo taken at any time is eligible, although photos that have won other competitions should NOT be entered.
3. Post-Processing - do whatever you like and the judge will decide if it works.
4. Posting - * ONE PHOTO per photographer in each challenge.* Photo Name in the message subject line.* Camera model & Lensbaby used.* Notes -- post brief EXIF data including ISO, shutter speed and aperture used.
6. Commenting - No commenting during challenge. When the posting is closed and a winner has been declared, comments can be made in this thread.
7. Have FUN!

One challenge every week, on the following schedule:

* New Topic - After winner is declared.
* Posting Starts - Right after topic is announced.
* Posting Ends-9pm EDT (Eastern Time) Friday, April 3,2009
* Winner will be announced shortly thereafter.
* Winner from this competition decides the theme of the next one (and judges it for a winner) after this competition is closed.

Take your best shot!!

This was hard! All the entries were great and showed wonderful range in interpreting the theme.

Here they are:

#1: KMAC and "The Canvas"
#2: jbrunjes with "The Tools of Entertainment"
#3: starvingjack with "Sewing"

Mark Wade gets a special mention for stretching the technical envelope.

Crabby get a warning from the officials for misuse of puns. :O)

Great job guys! Thanks for playing and congratulations to everyone!
