    The e-group Bank Holiday Challenge

    Thanks to those who responded yesterday with some great suggestions, I have taken a look and here are the chosen themes/subjects/categories for the bank holiday challenge;
    1 - The Bank Holiday Weather
    2 - Something you did not expect to see!
    3 - Yellow
    4 - Laughing/Enjoyment
    5 - It's dinner time!
    6 - 04:00 in the morning!
    7 - A Clock Tower
    8 - Something cute!
    9 - A Candid shot of someone, anyone but this must be... outside heheheh... wicked aren't I...?)
    10 - Music
    Finally... as a tie breaker just in case, please can you complete the following caption... "I chose Olympus because... "

    The prizes for the winner are;
    • A couple of 1GB Compact Flash cards
    • An Olympus RM-1 infra red wireless shutter release
    • An Art of Lee Miller collapsible circular reflector (48cm, or 19in, wide when open)
    So, there you go. Please make sure you are safe, and I hope you enjoy the challenge and capturing your images, please submit them to as many categories as you can.

    The gallery for submissions and uploading your images can be found here.

    So, trying to keep this nice and easy... here are the simple rules:
    1. Please only submit 1 entry per theme/category (the same image can be used in multiple categories if required)
    2. Please complete the caption and submit it at the bottom of the same post you show your images in (i.e. this thread!!)
    3. All your images must be posted in the e-group challenge thread here by linking them from your e-group gallery page.
    4. All images must be a maximum of 800px on the largest side
    5. Please submit your images by 22:00 Monday 26th May
    6. The winner will be determined by John and Ian, and will be announced on Wednesday 28th May
    7. Judges decision is final
    8. If you take the challenge too seriously... don't - it's not worth it.
    Now get out there and find an image for each of those categories. Heck, you could even try to capture several categories in one image - how's that for forward thinking eh...

    Enjoy!

                        One thing I think just needs some clarification - are we judging sets of pictures (do you need to do all 10) or looking for the best individual picture (and you can cherry-pick the themes)?

                          naively I had seen this as an assignment and assumed that the objective was to produce between 1 and 10 images allocated for 'assessment' against the 10 objectives.

                          something along the lines of 100 points - 10 per objective beig allocated with the usual mix of on topic/technical/artistic

                          but this was of course only an assumption from reading the posts...

                            Good questions... my take on this is that you can try to enter all 10 categories if you are able to, or you might only be able to produce one stunning image in a single category. It's only a bit of fun remember, the objective of which is to get you out there (or in there if the weather is awful) using your cameras and taking shots. If I were judging the challenge (and I am hehe) then I'd be encouraged by seeing more categories entered than a single super image.

                            Does that help...?

                              Just a question, from somebody with scant knowledge of British traditions... what is the Bank Holiday?

                              The subjects are very good... as I have not touched my camera in a while, it would be good to get out and try to shoot along these criteria, and maybe even post some examples. Of course, I will not participate in the contest, but if you allow me to post something in the thread (should I actually shoot something) I would be gratefull.
