Question 11th E-group Challenge - 'The Pub'

Hi there folks.

Grateful if a Figure of Authority could make this a sticky in the forum.

Here is the 11th e-Group Photo Challenge. I am advised by John that the aim is to get two challenges in before the year's end (12 in all) so the final date for submission for this one will be midnight on Saturday 6 December.

This indicates an easily accessible indoor or outdoor theme for the challenge so that you can get entries in pretty soon. The subject is: "The Pub." How you convey the essence of the pub is up to you. I trust that members under eighteen will be able to find an escort....

Please include a suitable title (which can help to explain any inspiration that may not be immediately obvious). This distinguishes your photo when it comes to voting.

I have added to the rules a note on max file size based on gallery limitations on this site.


The Rules


1. Photos should be taken (dated in EXIF) between now (1400 GMT Sunday 23 November) and midnight Saturday 6 December. Photos will be posted in the gallery on 7 December and voting will be completed by midnight Friday 12 December (leaving 18 days to set up and complete the 12th challenge).

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 and (b) your e-group forum name in the email. Any entries that are not clearly identifiable won't be entered into the challenge.

3. Entries to the challenge :-

a. Should contain no watermarks, distinguishing effects and no borders
b. Must be jpg format and no more than 800 px on the longest edge
c. Must have been taken on an Olympus E-Series camera
d. Must have all EXIF data included.
e. 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.

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. Pictures to be included in this 11th Challenge must arrive in my inbox before midnight on 6 December.

Please send your entries to Makonde2000@hotmail.com and include the word OLYMPUS in the title.

Good luck - anyone can win (as you see...!)

Re: 11th E-group Challenge - 'The Pub'

I went out to the pub tonight - only in the line of research for this challenge you understand. Most enjoyable, however I neglected to take the camera.

Doh.

Do I have to go again in that case...?

Frequently, until you remember to take your camera!

Re: 11th E-group Challenge - 'The Pub'

Just a reminder - in order to get two challenges in before the end of the year - making a dozen in all - you have until midnight Saturday of next week - 6 December - to go to the pub and take a cracking pic, inside or outside.

Can't be too hard but I haven't received a single entry yet!

I'm working on it.

I'll risk taking the E3 out when I meet my mates next week.

Ps I'll go out for some practice tonight.

Re: 11th E-group Challenge - 'The Pub'

I am trying to conjure up some good ideas, and have a few in mind I hope to try out. I have every intention of submitting an image in the 11th challenge.

Re: 11th E-group Challenge - 'The Pub'

I missed doing the 10th challenge, and so had decided that I was going to have a go at challenge No.11 - and then you came up with this subject

It's a cracking subject, but OMG what a toughie!

I still have no idea where to begin (specially as I don't drink, and rarely visit pubs!). I'm still hoping inspiration will strike soon

One for the boys this one I think

Thea

I know Makonde has said 'get down the pub', but really, 'the pub' is the theme and can be interpreted as you see fit. What do you see in your minds eye when you say those words...? is there anything that can be constructed that represents 'the pub'...?

I too don't go to pubs that often, in fact the only trip I have to the pub is on Christmas Eve on our traditional (20+ yrs) visit with a mate. I have a few ideas but it's the execution I have trouble with

Good luck Thea...

Didn't say I wouldn't have a go John - just stuck for inspiration

I'd like to take the opportunity to wish you, and everyone else, good luck also

Re: 11th E-group Challenge - 'The Pub'

C'mon Thea - indoor or outdoor..... there's a thousand possible themes...including architecture, signs....even temperance.... and there's not a pub I know where they would pass up the opportunity to be photographed (unless a customer with a clandestine lover, or an underage drinker caught in the act).

If I'd said 'The Church' would you think you had to be a practising worshipper to do it?

I know - I'm beginning to get a couple of 'ideas' now as I type this - I just need to figure out how to go about them.

Sorry - I've obviously had a harder week at work than I realised. Just ignore my earlier comments

Thanks, Thea.

Four entries so far .... as it's been a cold, wet Sunday I expect a slew of entries this evening as you get back from the pub...
