    The Theme:


    The Rules:

    - Photographs must be taken by you - no nicking them off the Web
    - Photos must be taken specifically for the contest - get out there and get snapping!
    - One picture per person.
    - No excessive digital manipulation (i.e. adding a more dramatic sky from another photo to your picture, or creating negative images etc.). Cropping, and adjusting levels, contrast, saturation etc. is ok though.
    - Equipment: Anything goes as long as the results can be seen from here.
    - Voting takes place when the contest closes.
    - The winner of the contest gets to choose the next subject.
    - The entire community is allowed to vote for one picture in the voting thread

    (...why not start rightaway?)
    Sorry this is late and also sorry if I did this wrong. I'm not as computer savy as I try to convince myself I am.

    Flight. Oo, that's going to produce some intersting results. The big question is which definition to use before I start snapping away... Hmmm!

    Hmmm, nice theme! *dons thinking cap*
  4. Joculator The 'Old' Fool

    Aghhhh. Eleven days left and not a thought has entered my head. Sorry, I tell a lie. Several have passed through but I'm damned if I can get hold of two inner tubes, four bedsprings and a thousand metres of clothes line.

    Betcha that's got you all thinking now.... :D

    "Mommy I'm scared!!!" :shock:

    I do have one picture I might post, but I'm hoping for a better shot. I'll try a few more times and post the best one.

    Same here, I have a few that could do, but not the one I want to get... To the Bat-cam!

    Not the one I wanted but it will have to do.

    We have lift off....

    I hate the delay on digital cameras. There were 70 other attempts before this one :D

    It's not really all digital cameras, just some of them. I once made Marcia hang around Jessops in Islington for an hour while I tested for shutter delay on all their instant cameras... all because we were going to The Colour of Magic screening with Terry and I forgot to bring my camera. :)

    That act of cruelty should have warranted a trip round Harrods on your card AND a slap up meal at the Savoy :D

    Thankfully we still have a couple of privately owned camera shops in the area where you can play all day and get a cuppa at half time :smile:
  11. Maljonic Administrator

    When I first saw your punishment it didn't sound that bad, until I realized you said Harrods and not Halfords. :)

    Two great entries!

    Here are some young pigeons, not quite ready to fly but you can tell they're thinking about it:

    Hehehe, the pigeons look like they need Rogain.

    I read about the competition one day before leaving to Dublin. So I had the idea of taking photos from the sky out of the plain. I took it on the flight back home because on the flight to Dublin it was night and so there was no chance of taking pictures.

    Ah, I finally got the picture I had in my mind all along! Here goes...
