The vanquished can be very sneaky, however.

The Foo Fighters look like they are skiing.

Skiing Ninjas Indeed :)

Great fun this thread, I might be inclined to bring my 50mm f/0.75 back to life - After all it survived the boiling with added soda... It needs a mount though so I will have to go though the boxes to see if I have any left - They seem to get adobted by Scavengers... ;)

To illustrate my point (again), here are the Master Foo Fighters;



A clinical analysis would be I had captured two stems of the grass Deschampsia cespitosa rubbing against each other in the wind. Or maybe they really are the *Foo Fighters* ??

Exactly the same setup as in the 'Sunrise at the Dark side of the Moon', by the way.

Bjørn, I love this image!
The simplicity or should I say minimalism is something I really like!!!
I remember JA making a similar shot at your place in Norway with a clothespin as the main subject. I simply and minimalistically adore such images!!!!

Ain't that the truth ...

As image makers we shouldn't have a pressure to "explain" everything, should we? Seeing is believing.

I agree, seems these days we are expected to justify our images, that's my main bugbear with image critiques.
Just sometimes(often actually) folks need to appreciate the images we create are intentional and we don't necessarily need or expect modification of our ideas or product.

To elaborate further, there is this wide-spread belief that if we only know all details of the EXIF, we'll understand the image itself :D
