Egg Recall
Contest Directions: An Iowa company on Wednesday broadened a nationwide recall of its eggs to 380 million after some of its facilities were linked to an outbreak of salmonella that has sickened hundreds of people across the country. The outbreak, which federal officials said was the largest of its type related to eggs in years, began in May, just weeks before new government safety rules went into effect that were intended to greatly reduce the risk of salmonella in eggs. The company behind the recall, Wright County Egg, of Galt, Iowa, is owned by Jack DeCoster, who has had run-ins with regulators over poor or unsafe working conditions, environmental violations, the harassment of workers and the hiring of illegal immigrants.
380 million - that's a lot of eggs! It's a shame to just waste them, so let's find creative uses for chicken eggs - e.g. swap other objects for eggs, use eggs as part of devices or as body parts, make some egg-heads, etc.

        • hahaha, that's funny. you're off a pixel on the left side
        • Agree with rw; there's a border on the left.

          The egg is a macro shot for sure, so it would be better - in my opinion - that you blur the background. The face would still be recognizable, and beholder's attention would center on your nice bad egg
        • thanks for the advise on bluring the boy's face. it worked out better

        • I like it very much!
          But I think the fried egg on the beach is a weak point of the composition.
          I think I would see a more powerful subject under this wonderful sunset
        • I agree with Bibistrella also it seems a bit dull, maybe levels and saturation adjustment, just my opinion. very creative thinking though
        • And I agree with Bibistrella and rw. Lovely idea.
        • I just can not overstand why you did not name this " The Crack of Dawn" ?
