July 2019 Photo Challenge: Frozen (As in Action)

July 2019 Photo Challenge Subject; Frozen (As in Action)

To enter simply post your picture in this thread between now and 31st July. After which there will 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 up to three LIKE votes when you decide you have seen the best photographs. Voting begins on August 1st

We'll try to keep the rules simple, but we must have a few:-

1) Enter one picture only. You are able to change or delete your entry during the month. There is no time limit on the submitted photo. The Title is a description, and your interpretation is your decision.

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 or the Tough Cameras.

3) Three votes per member, please. You do not need to enter the competition in order to vote.

4) If you vote for more than three pictures, none of your votes will count. But you will be asked to remove any extra Likes.

5) You can change your mind at any time during the voting period simply by removing your original Likes before allocating it to your new choice.

6) Please do not vote whilst the challenge is still open. You will not have seen all of the submissions, so cannot make a fair decision. Votes made before the end of the Challenge will be ignored or wiped by admin!

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!

Is the "As In Action" mandatory?

One of my other photo groups this month has the challenge of slow shutter. It's going to be a fun month!

Re: July 2019 Photo Challenge: Frozen (As in Action)

At first I was planning to post a pic from a water aswell
but it just didn't feel that original anymore. Then was thinking about my dog as dogs are always nice. As I started to dig into the archive to find he one I had in my mind I realized it might take a while and when I saw this one I decided to go oldschool. Definetly not the greatest one I have but one of the few action pics I took with my old E-1. No bells and whistles and huge amount of Mpix - just man and a machine

This is going to be a great challenge there are some superb shots already. I'd have trouble just picking 3 if I had to do it now and we are only half way through
