I'm not one for gimmicky submissions, but it's all I could come up with. Same setting as my self-portrait. wonder if anyone will notice that?

Won't do well, but it ws still fun watching the people in the parking lot trying to figure out what the hell I was doing.

*g* Very cute. Like the very low perspective on this one, the grit in the egg. Looks like it could have been cooked there, though the torn-up bit to the right side suggests it was moved - wonder if a slightly different angle could have hidden that without introducing other unwanted elements....

Sunny-side up seems to be the order of the day. You'd probably have to use a ton of grease to keep them from sticking. Good control over DOF, but I wish the cameras weren't quite so rapid in the degree of OOF in the foreground; more as it occurs in the background. Might not be optically possible though ....

Nice idea - but looks like an egg got pre-fried and then placed on the road - even more than the other version of this idea does. perhaps if you'd partially fried it and then put it down it would convince more?

i love the DOF you got here, but the yellow lines in the road are a bit distracting.

Funny that there are two photos with a fried egg in the middle of the road! Some people have strange ideas :-) Well done though, I must say that. Actually I quite like it - 7.

Bet you didn't expect anyone else to get the same idea.... Nice shot, DOF is really great in this shot - 7

I like the low perspective and the shallow dof. Maybe a bit brighter yellow to make the egg *pop* perhaps.

Dang, I was hoping I was the only goofball who was lying in the middle of the street to photograph an egg this week! But nooooo.... :) Nice DOF... I'm curious to see which of our shots fare better when it's all said & done.
