    Congrats! (And sorry for accusing your of staging this)

    What was said in history was this . . . with apologies to the Bard himself:

To be 4th, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous comments on your entries,
Or to take your red life ring and hang it on the concrete wall against a sea of troubles,
To sleep: perchance to dream of 1st place:
ay, there’s the rub;
For in that sleep of imagery what dreams may come.
And thus the native hue of resolution, depth of field and post processing.
By all your mistakes remember'd.

    Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw both of my entries in the top five. Thanks everyone for your votes.
Jade O., Who was it, in history, that said, "Go 4th and multiply"?

    Congratulations Elyod - what a fortuitous find - and a quick camera trigger.

    Mepo I know but I'm not telling Lo! : )

Congrats Elyod; you keep making 4th place every other Challenge; that means you are getting close to that coveted first place ranking, you know...

Sep 12, 2016
    Congrats on your great find and double 4th place finishes.

Mepo- It is the cheerful color!

    Not sure why I like this so much but I do!

    Kudos for the framing/timing that resulted in the overlap of the person's sweater and the car. Such a good example of the theme, and a lively color at that!

    aoc46, Lo, It wasn't even her car, she just carried on walking.
cookiejar, I couldn't let this opportunity pass by, regardless of the background.
Jade O., Would this qualify as the application of "reverse" psychology?

    Right on theme with that glorious yellow. The composition lets us follow the woman into the photo and up to the car. Well done, in my favourites.

    Well matching yellows. Composition ok. In my favorites.

Sep 10, 2016
    Well spotted! In my top picks.

    Great colour match! High in my faves.

Sep 10, 2016

    Can't get more on theme than this one. However, the back end of anything I prefer less than the front end and here you have two.

    Perfect for the theme. In my TT.

    I have a suspicion that this was staged, but fits the theme nicely. In my TT.

    Great coincidental color match with the sweater, car and wall. Wish the lady were carrying or doing something (pulling a shopping cart, maybe?) that gave more of a "story" to the scene.

    Well captured and on theme. Sadly not a particularly interesting composition.
