There's nothing worse than getting dressed to play tennis and then having your friend back out at the last minute.

Sometimes when I'm bored I toss cards. It helps me forget whatever might be bothering me and it sure does kill time!



P.S. I had another shot with better lighting, unfortunately I forgot to include my hat in that picture. Oh well, natural light doesn't wait for anyone!

A great idea, but it appears to be a little darker than necessary to be truly effective. A good solid effort though. I like the motion capture, although I might have preferred to see a little more of the hands. Solid effort.

This is an image that may not fair well with the 10 second voters... well, it'd probably do okay, as I gave it a 7 on my voting pass for the challenge and probably only gave it about that, but only know while commenting do I get a true appreciation of the subtleties of it. The translucent 3 of clubs, the long exposure giving us the tossing hand motion (noticed the blurred hands but didn't make the connection... my defence... I DID have a roasting temperature for the past few days, during which I voted... good thing I'm better now and I'm back)... and I love the read boxers. So, now that I've noticed that, I think even a 7 might have been a bit harsh (and I don't give out too many 7), so I think an 8 is more like what this image deserves.
