Ok, this won't exactly be my best scoring shot, but it seemed like a fun thing to enter at the time... :) I literally shot it without looking through the viewfinder out the windshield of my car.

For whatever reason, it always cracks me up to see amish horses towing canoes. I am easily amused. I predict a solid 4.

nice idea. a better photo would have been to have captured them coming towards you. publications prefer faces to rears, unless there's some compelling relevance to the overall composition. here, i don't see it (compositionally, that is). otherwise, this is a humorous take on a pretty hefty situation.

Good choice for the challenge but lacking a bit in sharpness.

Not a bad picture, maybe a little washed out but not marking you down because you repsected the Amish by not photographing the faces of these gentlmen.

hi, the message is clear enough but photo is very bad, i understand the movement of the subject and all but this is definetly just a snapshot, right ?

I like the concept of this shot. The focus is a slightly off. This shot is a little weak for an 'above the fold' newspaper front page

I like it, it works and the title works in today's recent gas price hikes. Perhaps a better title would be something like "Amish unaffected by Gas Crunch" It's a bit less of a stretch for my imagination.

The shot is good, but may be a bit over-sharpened.

Not directed personally, just a comment for all ... don't mock the Amish, they have much to teach us - if only we'd listen :) I would have either cropped the boat out or left the whole thing in to get over that feeling of incompleteness in the image.
