July 2018 Photo Challenge; Night Lights

To enter simply post your picture in this thread between now and 31st July 2018. 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.

Add a LIKE vote when you decide you have seen the best photograph. Voting begins on August 1st

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.

Amendment.. 3) Three votes per each member.

4) If you vote for more than one picture none of your votes will count. But you will be asked to remove any Likes other than your first choice.

Amendment.. 4) If you vote for more than three photos, all will be discounted unless corrected when asked.

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!

Edit: Substituted a higher quality version of the same picture, original was posted with low JPEG quality because of the dismal broadband performance in the rural Welsh holiday cottage
