They sure wrote a lot of waffle in the press release on what they saw in it. To me, it doesn't do anything. Maybe there's some contextual message I'm not getting though.

Fantastic capture.
Reminds me of the "crumpled piece of paper" masterpiece I sold to my sister when I was 6.
.... NOT :?

By the responses it looks like I'm not mad as they are similar to my views. Max, I didn't Google for winner after seeing the shot but followed your link which did not impress me. It was the same for the single competition judge, I thought the winner was his sister.



Cheers
