Can You Tell What It Is Yet?

The topic for the June Photo Challenge is Can You Tell What It Is Yet? - capturing abstract compositions wherever you see them.

To enter simply post your picture in this thread between now and Friday 30th June. 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 30th JUNE.

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 completion 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!

If no one wants to start I'll kick off.

A Comfortable Classic Icon after a fashion.

Answer: Not too difficult. Rotate 90 degrees anti-clockwise; its a telephone box theme inspired sofa.

Re: Can You Tell What It Is Yet?

The competition has now closed, let the voting begin!

To vote for your favourite simply use the "Like" button. Please remember to vote once only (any more will invalidate your vote) and do not use the "Like" button for any other purpose. Deadline for voting is midnight on Friday 14th July.
