May 2018 Photo Challenge Humanity in Action...

To enter simply post your picture in this thread between now and 31st May 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 June 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.

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.

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!

This was a grab shot in Covent Garden in London. The woman was just walking past the food stall where the guy was serving. Momentarily, they exchanged glances and I was lucky enough to capture it.

Helping each other in the garden, Nairobi by philip Gate Keeper, on Flickr

Helping each other out

I took this photo at home today of 2 Master craftsmen helping each other out to get the job done. The Welder was sawing a rod and the other - Chelsea FC man, was holding onto the rest of it. We have been building a steel footbridge over a passage. The guys were happy having their photo taken.
