And the winner is ...

Jill Henry,
who wins because Sara already won the Second Place photo guessing contest!

Sara's description was the most detailed and absolutely accurate: "This is a close up of a cheese grater. While the photographer is captured in the reflection of the metal grater, that isn't where the focus lies as the pierced holes are the most in focus ... it almost appears as though the holes that are in focus are the second layer in a 3-D grater (not a single sheet grater). So we are looking through/past the holes in the first layer to be able to see the exposed holes in the second layer."

Since we said that guessers couldn't win on two photos, we moved on to the next candidates.

Erica was the first one to guess cheese grater, but Jill's detail that "the photographer focused on his own reflection rather than the grater to good effect" was a specific detail that tipped the scale in her favor.

But given that "cheese grater" was a tough item to discern from the photo (tougher than say, the oil on water of the Second Place photo), our photographer asked that we send Erica a prize pack, too. Done.

LB the photographer writes, "The cheese grater does have multiple sides and I was focusing in on the holes in the back layer."

LB used a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT with an exposure of 1/13 sec. at f/4.5, ISO 1600, and a focal length of 34mm.

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
