I see everyone’s been pretty busy.
JK0011 “She who hesitates…” - I like the colours and the flowers in this one.
Zawarkal “Playtime’s over” - that’s quite a family group there!
Sasje “Good friends… ” - nice render.
gopherus “He who wants everything…” - a very interesting one - the individual items really leap out, but it hangs together so well too.
Ken OBanion “Be yourself…” - I like it, very amusing!
Totte “My home is my castle” - another great render.
Zawarkal “Mayhem” - that’s one surreal image! I like the colours too.
ShanarahPSU “My kingdom for a horse” - that’s really beautiful and also really weird - lovely colours and nice render.
Totte “You should talk to farmers…” - another weird but rather lovely one - I like the march of the penguins and the horse on the stairs, but what is Barack Obama doing there?
Zawarkal “The line starts back there” - funny! And very nicely done.
Zawarkal “Be careful what you wish for…” - lovely effects there, I lke the way the hair picks up the fire colours too.
JK0011 “End of the story” - another interesting one - I wonder what the horse in the foreground is up to?
gopherus “Laugh and the world laughs with you…” - really charming! I like the bright colours.
Luci45 “Tread cautiously…” - what a bunch of weirdos! (A bit like the contest itself) Lovely render too.
Ken OBanion “SHe don’t ride into town…” - another funny one - and I like the colours and composition - and the look the horse is giving!
Zawarkal “I’ll teach you…” - that’s really funny.
Totte “You can’t see the forest…” - superb render, nice DOF too.

And thanks for the generous comments, Ken and gopherus.  Hey, Ken: it must have taken you a lot of time to write all those responses - thanks for all the effort - it makes me feel like I ought to go back and think a bit more. Still that will have to be done at voting time anyway.

Now on my recent record (slowest yet) I don’t know if I’ll be able to complete any more entries, but in a spirit of optimism I pulled:
401 = Xerr
685 = Juggling Act for V4
451 = Wild Orchid Hair
532 = Silence Expansion 2 Furnishings

Ken, thanks for your comments. I’m happy to know that I redeemed myself.

MelanieL, thank you for your comments also. I am so happy someone found the I’ll teach you funny. My oldest son and I were rofl when I showed him the beginning of the idea. My other son was in disbelief that I would use poop in an image. But, I had to do it anyhow.

Decided that even though there’s not a lot of time left, I should have a go at this.  Here are my randoms…
296: Tequila Hair
308:  The Ritual for LilyNymph
317:  Trystan for M4
220:  Noggin’s Dragonfly

To be honest it could have been a lot worse!

Wish me luck, I’m an RRRR virgin!

Totte, thank you for your comments.

It’s really wonderful to see all the comments done this way on all the images. I haven’t seen this level of comments in other contests which I have entered. It helps me to learn by knowing what everyone is looking at in the images they see.

Thanks for the comments, guys! smile

MelanieL -  Really nice job on You Can’t Teach an Old Dog New Tricks. Great render and really creative. I feel sorry for the poor dog. Also, A Bird in the Hand is Worth Two in the Bush is another great image. Perfect pull for that one .

Totte - You are always so good at this, but I really love You can’t see the forest for the trees. Really great image. I like the fog effect.

Zawarkal - I’ll Teach You Not To Break My Toys is pretty crazy and quite funny as well. I like it. Great idea!

I’m going to try to toss out one last (non-competing) render before the deadline.

So here’s what I pulled:
18 - 19th Century Suit Pack for David
1374 - Songbird Remix Starter Bundle
1523 - The Good, the Bad & the Lovely
59 - Alma (Okay, we’re gettin’ seriously retro, here!)

Just because I have nothing better to do today…. (God, that’s pathetic; I really gotta get a life!)

Well, this was easy!

And yeah, that damn bird is in there somewhere!

No title or tag, since it’s non-competing, but the Saying, of course, is obligatory.

Well, assuming the contest is still ending tonight, that is definitely me finished for this one (I’m otherwise engaged till after the turn of midnight here in the UK).

A couple of catchups:

BlumBlumShub “Chasing the Dragon(fly)” - that’s really pretty

ETA: Oh, Ken, we crossed posts again!  I like your latest even as a NAE.

Shanarah - thanks for the comments.

Thanks to Totte and sponsors for organising this contest - it’s been good fun (even though I didn’t have as much time on my hands as usual with other commitments in the run-up to the holidays).

And So: Happy New Year to everyone! (See you next contest?!)

Back for more fun!  It might be a while before I finish this but this is my first pull:

#958 Dies Nefastus
#875 Space Shuttle
#1052 Dream Home Entrance Lanai and Mud Room
#413 The Hatter

Hmm, yeah, this will take me a while to figure out what to do with this…

I guess I wasn’t kidding when I said it would take me a while!  It took me a while to find my original post.

Once again lots of great and fun renders here!  Here’s what I finally came up with:

Tag:  emsim#1
Saying:  Always remember you’re unique.  Just like everyone else.

Also used:
Dane
White Rabbit for V4
Noggins Raven
