August Photo Challenge - Life's a Beach
 
We’re all at sea for this round, so get down to the coast and let’s have a tidal wave of entries! Subjects can be anything connected to the sea or coastline.

To enter simply post your picture in this thread between now and Thursday 31st August. There will then be a two week voting period during which all members (not just those who have entered the competition) will be encouraged to vote for their favourite by using the 'Like' button. 1st, 2nd & 3rd places will be allocated and these will ultimately count towards the title of E-System User Photographer of the Year. However, do bear in mind that each monthly round is a separate competition in its own right and you can enter as many or as few rounds as you wish.

PLEASE DO NOT VOTE (USE THE 'LIKE' BUTTON) BEFORE THE COMPETITION HAS ENDED AND THE VOTING PERIOD BEGUN ON 31st AUGUST.

We'll try to keep the rules simple, but we must have a few:-

1) Enter one picture only

2) All entries must have been taken on an Olympus E-System body (Four Thirds or Micro Four Thirds), a non-Olympus body but using an Olympus Zuiko E-System lens or an Olympus digital compact such as the XZ-1.

3) One vote per member, please. You do not need to enter the competition in order to vote.

4) If you vote for more than one picture your votes won't count.

5) You can change your mind at any time during the voting period simply by removing your original like before allocating it to your new choice.

I think I have covered everything but please do let me know if I have missed anything.

Now, let's see lots of entries and good luck to all those who participate!

A while ago I am afraid but if you rush down to Lyme Regis tomorrow (Thursday) they will be back in the evening. Weather permitting

John - could I have a bit of clarification re Title and Content? 'Life's a Beach' tends to suggest a shot with some living thing in it. Half the entries so far have that - the other half have nice shots of beaches. Not trying to be funny at all.
