This is my entry for the DPC Open PhotoGolf Tournament - Week #7. This is also my first round entry for the MS Side Tournament.

I wonder how many people will guess this is my photo?

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/943/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_736611.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/943/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_736611.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

1 year later, same ball, different location, similar result. I certainly don't expect this to do as well as last time, but a 6 + would be quite dandy.

[Nov. 3rd, 2009 11:43:23 AM]

I have lost count of the number of times I have looked at my score to make sure the number on the left side of the decimal is indeed a 7. It's been a fun week watching this score.

Thanks for all the votes and comments!

Jonathan

I borrowed it from work. If you look up "Garden Globe" on google, you should be able to find something similar.

I want one of these balls but can't find any. Is it a bearing?

Sky is blown out. Pity. Would be better with more detail and blueness.

Amazing photo!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/02/2009 07:03:05 AM
Wow, When I first saw the 2nd place at the mirrors challenge, I thought it was bloody awesome. And now I have a Deja Vu, but the picture is still amazing!

And to think that you actually accomplished to recreate the original one, it's more worthy (I noticed the difference between the tones of the surrounding trees).

Great job, 10.

I will be disappointed if this finishes anywhere short of the blue. Although, you may have jinxed it with your yellow border :D
