      It looks like I'll have to give you a tougher question next time! It's an upside down deep sided frying pan.

      Thanks very much all.

I never thought of the Halloween connection but it does kind of fit :-) .

ysal - Yes they are colour changing LED lights placed below the grater, so you can see the grating pattern on its other sides through the holes.

forkcandles - sounds like a grate idea! I never realised how jagged they were until I took this closeup.

      I'm apologise to everyone thought the slightly off horizontal skyline. I'm on holiday and the PM abilities of my tablet are limited and it doesnt seem to save most of what I do them :-( . I think I am less sensitive to the slight tilt than most people. I wouldn't have entered it if I thought it would have irritated so much.

      Thank you both very much.

Maike13 - sadly my phone doesn't do exposure bracketing but had to use what I had with me at the time.

      Thank you all for the comments.

aoc46 - the 'beach community' is Brean in Somerset. The only reason it is there is for people to have beach holidays. If the water was not there then Brean and Burnham-on-sea (in the distance) wouldn't exist. That is why I feel the water is a very important feature of this photo.

aoc46 - it was brighter a few minutes before, too bright in fact so I chose this summer version.

Jade O - I will try again when I get home from my holiday. My tablets software has been fighting me so I had to enter it as it was.

      Nice shot and good timing.

I'd reframe it so there is more space at the bottom for the skier to ski into and less on the right hand side. Also increase the mediums a tad and reduce the highlights to get more definition in the snow.

      Lovely crisp shot.

This photo is really messing with my brain! I am having trouble deciding whether the smaller helicopter is a real one a long way away or a remote control one not that far away. Knowing which it is would make a big difference to my sense of scale of the photo.

I would have been tempted to clone out the two shadows on the bottom left to keep the clean look. Looks to be a tad too bright too.

      Great looking garden. It reminds me of one around 10 miles from me. Amazing pineapple! I'm guessing its hollow. Is there a room in it?

The girls look a little strange on deckchairs in the shade so may have looked better if they had briefly moved into the sun (while cropping off the shadow area) for the shot then moved back. I suppose you'd loose the spontaneity then.

      A nice sharp high contrast shot. Seeing the ghosts on the reflections I was wondering if you've considered using Perspex/Plexiglass for this kind of shot instead of a mirror as :-

'Black Plexi is really black and is extremely opaque. It acts as a mirror with high reflectiveness and gives none of the second reflection we see with glass.'

Some burning in is visible by the pointy ends. Maybe it's just our different monitors.

      Thanks for your speggtacular comments. They really mean a lot to me :-)

Mepo - The blue is just two blue sheets of paper/card stuck to the back of the box.

The camera was on a tripod with cable release attached set to a 1 second exposure. When I had aimed the gun I asked my son to switch off the light making the room pitch dark. I then pressed the cable release with one hand and fired the gun with the other less than a second later. The bang from the gun activated the sound trigger which set off the flash which captured the moment of action at eggsactly the right time.

What made it even trickier was the fact that the eggs didn't break very much the first time I shot them, so I had to set them up again and shoot then a second time through the same holes as before. The second time they broke eggsellently :-)

      A good excuse to shoot them then ;-) . I'm delighted you like it so much. It's one of my personal favourites.

      I'm delighted you all like the smoke patterns. I couldn't have realistically hoped for better.

Jade O - Connection? The challenge is 'Share what you like' so it has an open theme. If you are referring to the 'hopefully, will bring back memories of happier times' then yes, looking back through my old Fujimugs (the older brother of Panachallenge) photos did indeed do that. I do very much regret the fact that Fujumugs folded but I still cherish my memories of my time there. I hope my entries will give joy to my new Panachallenge family too :-) .

As for the title - sorry if it was a bit too cryptic. Please read the explanation in my reply to mrsawyers comment below.

Ysal - I went through a dozen eggs to get this shot, well actually 13 as I accidentally picked up a raw one too! The mess inside the box was spectacular!

RobertLavker - I think I must have had beginners luck then! This was taken for the Smoke/Steam Fujimugs challenge and was only the second time I'd ever tried to photograph smoke. The first time was the previous day for my other entry. I have never tried since. Good luck if you try again.

aoc46 - I think you would be OK. All the mess was contained inside the box. It just needs to be wiped out after a few attempts.

NEAT - You see it as purple!? I make it navy blue. I chose that as it is the complementary colour to the eggs.

mrsawyer - Sorry if the title turned out to be a bit cryptic. I took this photo for a Fujimugs challenge and have never changed it's caption since then. I can't remember the exact time the title came to me but I do remember that when it did it came in a flash (no pun intended!).

While I was sitting, waiting for the smoke to manifest itself into interesting formations, I noticed how delicately the warm smoke enveloped the spoon and egg in an almost ethereal way. It applied almost imperceptible pressure to their surfaces, whilst smelling beautiful in the process of doing so. It came to me that if an angel ever did kiss, it would be as gentle and as beautiful as how this smoke caressed the spoon. So the title was born and has stayed with this photo ever since.

Mepo - You mentioning Caerphilly makes me wonder if you suspected it was my photo? It does sound like it was a fun job, especially around Easter time ;-) .

Lo - The train is at The Harry Potter Experience within the Warner Bros. Studios, Leavesden, near Watford England where the films were made.

Please have a read of this webpage which gives a concise history of the engine including a link to a video of the train in full flight through our green and pleasant land :-)

I never realised till just now that :-

"The Two Replicas in Universal Studios Orlando, part of the Hogwarts Express ride, are actually Funicular Rope pulled trains. Their wheels are fake" !!!
