Re: May 2019 Photo Challenge: Rule of Thirds

We have so many regular members here (!), is there any way of encouraging them to participate in the Challenges. We are doing Ok, but just would like others to do it as well......

I would love to see more entries so we can appreciate and learn from others.
The challenges are simply good fun and that's it, not pretentious and not critical.
The same people certainly don't win every month which should make you want to give it a go, who knows who will win?

Take your photo and share it, what's to lose?

Congrats to Blu-by-u, with an almost mono photo of a super scene in the mountains, and Shaw with his seascape and distant mountains, Also to Alfbranch with a bleak b/w photo of the Tewet Tarn, and tree. And finally to Stoates with another seascape and lighthouse. Water was a good medium for this challenge.

Re: May 2019 Photo Challenge: Rule of Thirds

The picture has righty been added to the showcase - it's well worth looking through that if you have not already done so.

It never ceases to impress me how good the pictures on this forum are and I would like to thank both

henry (blu-by-u) for his picture of the Horse and rider and Stewart (Shaw) for Sallachan Beacon and Mark for arranging the competitions that bring these pictures forwards

Regards
Andy

I agree, it took my eye straight away. And despite blu-by-u doing his best to stop me voting for it I still went ahead and voted for it
