Here are this week's FPC's PoW!s, in no order of preference:
by: manu antigua
Canon EOS 400D Digital, 20 sec (20), f/14, 10mm, ISO200
Editor's Comment: This one of the much photographed Enchanted Kingdom amusement rides packs a definite PoW! punch and simple knocks your jaw to the ground! The peripheral lights caused by the onboard gondola lights (and some specks on the lens?) add interestingness to the overall good composition, which was made possible with a wide angle lens.
"Tagaytay City Philippines - 4"

Nikon D80, 1/500, f/5, 195mm, ISO100

Photographers Description: I am a Filipino but a lot of people have mistaken me for Indonesian, probably because not only do I look Indonesian (yes, we Malays resemble each other) but I speak the language as well. Having been visiting Indonesia for almost 14 years now, I feel at home in archipelago which is so much like the Philippines in so many respects. Heck, I even got married in Indonesia but to a Filipina of course. In embracing another world's culture, one keeps coming back to your own.a boat detail that looks like the Philippine flag in Geger Beach, Bali, Indonesia
Editor's Comment: The first time I saw the thumbnail of this photo in the FPC pool, my first thought was that this looks like the Philippine flag. When I clicked on it and saw the photo page and learned that that was Farl's exact description why he took this photo, it made me smile.It only shows how effective this photo is in conveying a message. Beyond technical excellence and bright colors, its effectiveness is what makes it a winner.
