Hey folks, it's time to vote!

We had five excellent submissions to this contest. I've separated the pictures from the submitters so that you can vote on content rather than personality.

I am going to include the flavor test posted, because the entrant deserves to be able to frame the picture properly.

I'm allowing just over a week for voting on this one -- it seems like we don't need more than that.

Josh

First of all, an archive of all five pictures. Because I learn from previous contests. Eventually.

Picture #2

Flavor text: The Men In Black have been watching over my daily commute for years, even surviving a change in house ownership. This week is the first time they've ever taken an interest in the soccer though.

Picture #4

Flavor text: This picture was taken in southern Oregon.
We were driving along the I5 & I thought Riddle was an odd name for a town, so I decided to take a picture of the sign.
After I took the photo, we realised we had passed the cyclist & so I double-checked the photograph.
Yup, that really is a cyclist, on the Interstate, riding towards the traffic.

Picture #5

Flavor text: The area where my cottage is located is one of the homes of the Eastern Massassauga Rattlesnake, a threatened species. Some years ago, this sign was put up in an attempt to raise awareness and lower the incidents of snake road kill. I don't know how successful the program is, but I certainly come across more than one of them each year.

Polling has closed! The voting was interesting to watch, and I think that each picture was in the lead at some point during the voting.

Thanks to all who entered, and now it's time to reveal the winners.

In first place, Picture #2! This excellent picture was submitted by Tuttle, who has won 100 rank points and a pick from the prize pile!

In second place, Picture #5! Submitted by noma, who has won 50 rank points!

In third place, Picture #4! Submitted by Mouse, who has won 25 rank points!

Just to complete the reveals, I need to note that Picture #1 was submitted by brian_s, and Picture #3 was by techant.

All of our contestants have entered Forum contests before, so there are no first-timer prizes to hand out...

Thanks all for playing and for voting.

Josh

In case anyone is wondering how that window looks when you're actually driving along the main road, Google Street View link (the only legal spot to park and get a clear shot was in a side street). Unfortunately, it looks like the Google car went past during the few months when the house was changing hands.
