    Are there any limits to the choice of song? Could it, for example, be something I or a friend has written?

            Hmmm.... been doing it for the past 22 weeks. This should be interesting BUT!
            Is this competition opened to people not using the E-system? I've just gone over to the Red and White label camp...

                  That's unfortunate but all entries must be taken using an E series camera

                      So, if "The ConstruKction of Light" is allowed, technically this covers any and all photographs. Looks like this challenge will call for some self Discipline.

                        As with any theme it is up to the imagination of the tog. Whether the theme is picked up upon and found agreeable by the voters is what will count.

                              Like all such things, it's silly until you know what it means!

                              What're the rules about the use of Photoshop etc.?
