Hello,
I am glad that I won the last mini challenge, being new here and all, I'm flattered:smile6
For the new mini challenge I would like to introduce couples, or let's just say: two is a party three is a crowd :D
Alle animals, twins, identical buildings, you name it, but it should be two of them and they must be similar, not three, not four, not five, 2 is the key number here!

I wish everybody good luck and hope to see many nice duo pictures!:thumb

Here are the rules: http://digitalgrin.com/showthread.php?t=168929
Mini-Challenge #103 will end Saturday, Aug 28th 2010 at Midnight in central europe. (yes i'm from Europe ;) i've just checked my windows clock and date/timezone and it says UTC +01:00 Amsterdam. Hope that is clear enough.)

Here are some examples to get you all inspired

    Jenn--I almost spit out my coffee. It's like I never left the PJ forum rolleyes1.gif.

    So what you are saying is that I have a nice range? :D

    seriously though--I appreciate that you like #3--it is my favorite of the shots included--it's also one of my all time favorites.

    #1 I like, mainly because I'm a sucker for converse shoes and it's a tribute of sorts--and #2, I dont' know what draws me to that one, I keep coming back to it, maybe because it's so horrible ne_nau.gif.

    BIG TIME EDIT: I looked at the numbers wrong...
    You like the color shots of the women? I thought that's the one you hated?

    I'm blown away that you dislike the couple in black and white--that's one of my all time favorites and yes it is horrible, I find their relationship so cold at a glance anyway, but I can't stop staring at it.

    hmmmm the things you learn. You threw me for a loop on that one.

    I've discovered that I don't think in twos very often (except for scores of pictures of my sons)! So this has been a fun exercise to run through my shots looking for pairs...

    There's some impressive images in this challenge, enough for me to worry about my own being able to compare. Going through most of my stuff, almost all of my subjects are either singular, or in groups of four. I did, however, manage to find these pairs:

    1. Wingmen
    BlueAngels.jpg

    2. Hello?
    Giraffes.jpg

    3. Kids Will Be Kids
    elephantbabies.jpg

    And while I like this next one, I'm just posting it to post it, and not to have it compete with the others. Too much depth of field on it.

    #1 is creepy

    Sorry, wasn't meant to be. Just my son messing around with one of the cats. She absolutely adores him and thought both their expressions were funny when he picked her up.
