Speed Challenge #30 – I think this challenge has not appeared here before. [If anybody notices otherwise, please let me know so I can change the challenge.] The criteria is originality (25%), message or coherence (25%), how bending is applied to convey the message (25%) and of course how far the bending went (25%) – without ruining your LB.

Photo Submissions:

1. Camera - Any Camera (with LB attached)
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 - * 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!
8. Good luck to everyone.

One challenge every week, on the following schedule:

* New Topic - After winner is declared.
* Posting Starts - Right after topic is announced.
* Posting Ends-9 pm PDT (Pacific Time) Tuesday, June 2, 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.

[NB: No LB was hurt while shooting this image.]

my thanks to Rich, David Morel, Andy, Steve, Mark, Jimmy, Halimas, Joby, Darell, William E, Crabcakes, Va Girl, Kmac and Scott, your images are awesome. If I had a choice, I would pick all but logistically that may pose a problem for the next speed challenge. And casting lots was difficultly complicated for me. Based on the criteria established for this challenge, I would have to go with:

1st place: Condensate [Crabcakes]
2nd place: flight of the flower fairies [jumpinjimmyjava]
3rd place: Tie – Fanciful End [Mark Wade] and Bokehfest on the Crystal Symphony [William E]


congratulations Crabcakes, Jimmy, Mark and William E.

Crabcakes, the crown belongs to you now. Looking forward to your challenge.

Wow! Last thing I expected was to win!

Thanks Rob! And thanks to all for your comments.

It's the middle of wedding season so as busy as we are, I could have picked a better time to enter a challenge...like I said...I never expected to win...

But I have an idea...big surprise...coming soon...
