Because it is the best quality picture. Not everyone is as uptight about the kids being inside the basket as I am, so it is still getting plenty of votes.

Congrats everybody!

Looks like we took the dreaded '4th at the Olympics'. Lol. My son and I ended up 4th and 5th. 2 pics in the top 5 was pretty cool though. I sat about an inch from the basket while my son drilled the DGCR Eagle over and over for pic 4. And we stood out at CSU Pueblo for about a half an hour getting all kinds of weird looks while we waited to get pic 5 without a ton of students in the pic. We carried the discs all out there in Coors Light cooler bags and not once did anyone ask what we were doing or why.

Thanks!

Thanks DGCR for hosting this event and congrats to all the winners!

My kids and I are especially thankful to those members who voted for our picture. And despite the concerns (legitimately) over the kids being in the basket, we were very careful and quick taking the shot, and the basket incurred no damage.

While I'm new to the site and even newer to the forums, I've been playing off and on for a number of years. In the last few months I've been playing everyday (my new lunch diet) and this summer I introduced the kids to the game. We've had a lot of fun battling through the heat, flys, skeeters, and the day of the infamous bee sting.

Skimming the boards one day I noticed the basket giveaway and thought we could have some fun with it. After playing an extended round of disc golf at Jack Mattox Recreational Center outside of Chattanooga, TN and shooting more than 50 pictures, we chose 2 of the shots (from this set) to enter. And yes, while I did edit myself out of the shot, the rest of the effects were a collaborative effort by the kids and I using Lightroom. Our other entries included my amazing wife, HDR forest basket, my sons chainer excitement, and the young school artist.

Thanks again to everyone and happy hunting!

the original shot...


final shot...

It was the most artistic shot, not surprised you won. You have clear talent.
thanks for letting everyone know the basket was not damage to ease that concern.

looking through your car window after a round of frustrating bogies and lost discs and soon realizing your keys are locked inside and you had driven 2+ hours to play that 1.5/5 rated course thinking "there's no way it can be that bad".... then deciding whether or not to review the course as soon as you get home or sleep on it for a few days.

Thanks Timg for the running this contest. I'm looking forward to checking out the MVP plastic for 2nd place!

Thanks, also, to everyone who voted for picture #2. And I really appreciate the comments that my picture got.

I love disc golf, and this site, and have really enjoyed taking advantage of all of the course information. I have two DGCR clings on my car and my wife didn't even mind too much when I put one on her car.

Picture story: My daughter and I were at the market. When we came back to the car I looked in and saw the shadow of the DGRC cling on the car seat. I thought it was really cool. So I rolled down the window and took the picture. It was just taken with my cell phone and wasn't touched up in any way.

My intent was to post the picture in the "post a cool disc golf picture" thread. The same day that I was going to post it, I found the thread for this contest. Great timing! It was the content of the picture that I really enjoyed... more than the quality of the image itself. I'm glad that others apparently agreed.

Thanks again, everyone!
