Hey everyone, this is the first challenge I get to pick. Trying to think of something fresh that isn't in the list.

Terms:
Each photograph must consist of more than one of the same item (eg. bowling pins, flock of geese, etc.)

    • Up to three images per poster
    • Bonus points for items being in multiples of three
    • Photos may have been shot as far back as you like
    • Bonus points for shots taken during the challenge
    • Challenge expires on 3/17/2012

Good luck!

Here are some from the archives. I will replace one/more if I can shoot something specifically for the challenge.

This one goes back to practically the beginning of my serious photography efforts with my first DSLR.

Three trees (this scene has a subtler beauty that I think takes awhile to appreciate):

Okay, we're coming down to the last 2 days to submit photos. There's an amazing group of submissions in here already. Going to be a tough decision I think!

Okay, sorry for the delay. Judging for this one was tough! There were so many really great submissions. In the end I could only choose one, however. So the winner of this competition is Paul for his sailboat shot. He also had runner up for the colored houses in a row. I know neither had multiples of three, at least that I could count in the house shot either, but the sailboat shot showed amazing tone, reflection, symmetry and lighting!

Even picking honors would be hard, so many awesome other shots. Loved the pollen, the three wolves, the three pelicans, the cacti, the bunnies and the cows. Good job everyone!

Congrats Paul! You're up! I'm off to Moab, UT and Colorado Springs for a week! Cheers everyone!
