Thank you to everyone who participated in Challenge 76 "Anticipation". We had anticipated some great entries from you, but were still surprised by the great variety in your submissions.


The overall winner is Sprigo for this excellent composition of a dog anticipating a tasty meal. You can just make out the glint in his eye as well as the saliva coming from his mouth. We recommend viewing this in full to get a nice view of that doggy drool!

Sprigo's winning photo is shown above. You can see the original version and comments here:


Second place this week goes to x19bex92x for her traffic lights shot. It is an instantly recognisable symbol of anticipation and top marks for the colour effect too.


Third place is Vesisade with this charming shot of a girl and a berry bush. She looks like she is anticipating a nice treat but there is also an expression of apprehension on her face. We particularly liked the framing on this with the berries and leaves in the foreground.



The Honourable Mentions go to six Fotothing members this week, we tried to find as many different interpretations on the theme as possible. In no particular order:

Archer’s basketball team who all have their eyes on the ball:


MrMonkey’s surfer, preparing himself for the next wave:


Baz0106 looking forward to a big win:


Castor1’s shot of a bird handler expecting his subject to land at any moment:


Grenthal’s bird’s eye view of what is coming round the next corner:


And finally, are we anticipating that Danisto hasn’t quite finished typing yet?



Well done to everybody and thanks to all who took part. To see the all the entries visit: http://www.fotothing.com/tag/challenge76/
