    Thanks again to Mickey for the choosing my pic! For the next challenge, I'd like to see some frozen moments shots. This are moments we can see with our eyes but we can not frame them forever. The contest should run until 4/7 2PM GMT.

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/ehudlavon/8324629019/" title="How do I look by Ehud Lavon, on Flickr"> 8324629019_74343b0e14_b. "1024" height="834" alt="How do I look"></a>

    Please refer to the comprehensive list of previous topics and winners via the links below:

    72 Hour Challenge Rules

    As the title suggests, each challenge lasts for 72 hours. Everyone gets to submit 2 photos shot with :43: camera in line with the chosen theme. The winner of the previous challenge gets to choose the new theme (topics can be anything under the sun) and serves as the judge for his/her 72-hour challenge.

    For obvious purposes, the judge is disqualified from participating in his/her own 72-hour challenge. Instead, he/she should post up to 2 photos as examples to start out the challenge. Should the winner not be able to commit to being the next judge, the responsibility is passed on to the runner-up.

    At the end of the 72-hours (we don't have to be strict about 72-hours, especially with time differences depending on where you are on the globe), the judge will name a blue ribbon winner, a runner-up, and 1 honorable mention. As we all know, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. We may not all agree with the chosen winners; the judge is encouraged (but not required) to state what criteria he used to decide on a winner.

    To make sure we don't break any Mu43 rules/regulations, by participating in this thread you are allowing the judge to repost your image for the sole purpose of announcing the winners for the 72-hr Blue Ribbon Challenge.

    2nd submission - this mini fireworks display is just my lowly £0.99 lighter, and an om-d (not £0.99) on burst mode :thumbup:

    This is from some engagement photos I shot for some friends of ours on a tight budget. The 'freeze the moment' part comes in because she actually tripped and fell while trying to sit on the stairs, and I snagged this shot in mid-laughter. It's not a perfect shot, but I like the dynamic look in her hair from the movement and the genuine smiles. This is one of the couple's favorite photos and I printed and framed an 11x14 for them recently :smile:
