New competetion - Photo Challenge#41

As promised I will run the next Photo Challenge

Due to summer vacation this challenge will run until Monday 15th August

Inspired by Texas (one of my favorite bands) I say: lets see the Summer Sun.

Shooting the sun doesn't neccessarily mean sunrise/sundown:
Any photo featuring the sun taken anywhere between Saturday July 9 and Sunday August 14 will qualify.

Please send your entries to FlemmingS2011@hotmail.dk before Tuesday 16 August 12:00 A.M.

General rules are the same as in Photo Challenge # 40:
How to Enter (old School rules)

-Max of 800 pixels in width or height
-Up to 512Kbytes
-EXIF intact please
-Taken by you on an E-series camera between Saturday 9st July 2011 and Sunday 14th August 2011 inclusive.

-Please include your name, your forum moniker and a title for the picture.

Full rules:

1. Photos should be taken (dated in EXIF) between Saturday 9.July 2011 and 12:00 GMT on the Sunday 14.August inclusive and sent in during that period. Photos will be posted in the gallery on the afternoon of the 16.August, We will vote in the week after this, voting will be completed by midnight Thursday 22,th June 2011. I will announce the results on Tuesday 23August 2011.

2. You must be the photographer who created the picture in order to enter the challenge, and all entries must be visibly anonymous and should be sent to the challenge organiser. You must indicate (a) your real name, (b) your e-group forum name and (c) a title for your photo, in the email. Any entries that are not clearly identifiable and verifiable won't be entered into the challenge.

3. Entries to the challenge :-Should contain no watermarks, distinguishing effects and no borders
Must be jpg format and no more than 800 pixels on the longest edge
Must have been taken on an Olympus E-Series camera
Must have all EXIF data included for the organiser to verify.
Max file size to suit the gallery here is 512kb.

4. You need to be registered on e-group.uk.net forums to qualify for entry into the challenge. The organiser may also enter the challenge (the entries are anonymous and the organiser is trusted to record votes accurately).

5. Only one entry permitted per challenge please. But if you want to withdraw an entry or replace it with another that's OK, you must make it clear in an email to the challenge organiser before the closing date, also ensure the email contains clear instructions and (if required) your replacement picture.

6. Voting on the challenge:-
Any registered member of the e-group forum may vote, including those who submit entries.
Those who submit entries may vote for their own photo but are expected to allot their choices fairly on perceived merit.
Voters should list their three choices in order of preference, by display number and title to avoid confusion.
Points will be allotted as follows: three to first choice, two to second choice, one to third choice.


I am looking forward to see your work.

YES !
Anything goes provided we can see a bright spot that could like the sun

Weather is not especially good in Northern Europe these days but I hope to see some interesting photos.

Sofar I have received 7 entries.
If you haven't received a confirmation mail something has gone wrong, but please send me an E-mail or PM in that case
