In this game you crop part of a picture of an object.
(It would be nice if you used a picture you took rather than something scavenged from the web, but is not necessary. We don't want to limit the playing only to the amateur photogs.)

Make sure you resize your original pic down to no larger than 800 horizontal before you start cropping.

Everyone gets to guess what the object is.

The one that guesses correctly gets to post the next picture.

After it's been guessed or everyone gives up, then post the original pic the crop was taken from.
If no one guesses correctly, then the op gets to decide who in their judgement came the closest.

If the player who's turn it is (the one that guessed correctly on the last pic), has not posted a new pic within 24 hours, then it's up for whomever posts a new pic first.


Here is one to get it started.

Hehe...that's ok....and I would have guessed at yours ...but I don't have a clue. Maybe once this has been identified....I'll post one. I was in the process of scouring my photos for a good candidate - but didn't want to skew the game by cropping either to large or ...too small. :)

Negatory. :) I'll let 5 others guess then I'll move the crop window on the image - keeping the size the same to see if that helps. And then a few more before I increase the size of the window - just to keep the game moving.

I think it's too hard - I'll make it bigger and moved the crop window.

good one RazoMac - I was going for tile roof.

(Didn't really put any rules for the crop size. That's probably a judgement call based on what it is. Just make sure that the full size image is resized before the crop so that no one has to be scrolling when that pic gets posted.)

That was never stated in the original rules - although this is the first time I've used a 'found' photo. The idea for this came to me as i was going to post a continuation in the thread I just linked to. But I see - out of spite - you went ahead and posted there just to 'break the link'?? :Angry-Tongue:

So fine - I'll just reveal. That thread was stuck on 69 - with the next posting obviously being 70. Anyone with an iPad is or even those who haven't have probably seen this app - The Elements: A Visual Exploration (http://periodictable.com/ipad/) It was in the original TV ads as I recall.

So - the 70th element is Ytterbium and this was a crop from that exact image from that element in that app. :) http://i1088.photobucket.com/albums/i340/BrianLachoreVPI/Ytterbium.jpg

The dragonfly was just a nice extra to this particular shot, taken from about 30' away.


Beautiful picture Bob, and I hope you don't mind but I had an urge to do this (it's a sickness I have ;) ), it's just a perfect picture to do it with!

I can't tell, if it looks synthetic or not.

I'm going to say a dinosaur statue.
