The question is: is it safe what I'm doing?

The answer is: no, but it's worth trying!

Some of you could think this is a shoehorn, but it's not. I didn't plan this shot: my friend Guido came to visit my family and see our newborn, Andrea. The weather was awful and we stayed at home. It was 6.30 pm. and he was ready to come back home (he had 3-4 hours driving). But when he was about to go, we saw a rainbow. I immediately got my tripod, camera, filters etc. and we reached this place.

After several shots I found this rock and thought that was perfect for a question like the one I have chosen for this photo.

I took other funny shots but I preferred this one. I am the photographers you can see in this image, but the camera and the tripod are the ones used by Guido.

Wow, a ribbon :)

Considering the unpredictable nature of the challenge I really hoped to get a top 5 with this score and that's what happened.

I wanna thank all the voters and the ones who tried to guess my question.

Fabulous shot, Alex, congrats on the ribbon!
I hope you washed the legs on that tripod - Guido's bag might smell funny :).


The rainbow unfortunately faded before this shot. But with some beers I can see everything :)

Is plaid a good fashion statement for photographers? Depends on their agility. (Lovely blues).

Did the camera get wet?
What an awesome shot!

Will I get swept away by the tide?
No! I will stay here and take this awesome photo!

Did he get the shot? Yes.
Your image has the possibility of multiple questions that can be answered by yes or no, even though you may have had something specific in mind. Gorgeous blue tones, good composition, but essentially it's a photo of a guy with a camera on a rock and it's not that interesting for me.

Yes, stay. Should I stay or should I go?

Will the camera get wet? No. Will he? Maybe... Great blues.

Very nice. One of my top picks.

My interpretation -

Q. Is this safe?
A. No, but it'll be worth it if I get the shot.

Is this guy going to have Wet Feet? Obviously yes!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Q: Did I put the water tight sealed lens on or....?
A: NO but it's shallow
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/05/2012 02:11:42 PM
Answer: No.
Question: Am I going to get back to shore without getting my feet wet?

Nice texture in sea and sky.

I suspect you are wondering whether you should stay or go, I reckon you should go. 10
