Challenge #50 - TRANQILLITY

Could the MODS make this post a sticky ... thanks

The challenge is TRANQILLITY

As usual, the winner gets to choose the theme for the next competition. This challenges theme “tranquillity” is suitably vague enough to encompass almost anything, please have a go!

Please PM your entries to me, ChrisW, or email them to cwhytock @ blue yonder. . co . uk and mark the PM or email with "Olympus Challenge". Entries accepted until midnight 15 October 2012.

General rules:
-Max. 800 pixels in width or height
-Up to 512KB
-EXIF intact
-Taken by you on an E-series (4/3 or m4/3) camera between 25 September 2012 and 15 October 2012.
-Include your name, your forum moniker and a title for the picture.

Full rules:

1. Photos should be taken (dated in EXIF) between 25 September 2012 and 15 October 2012 inclusive and sent in during that period. Photos will be posted in the gallery after 15 October. We will vote in the week following, results announced soon after voting closes. More reminders and details nearer the date.

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

3. Entries to the challenge :-
Should contain no watermarks, distinguishing effects and no borders
Must be jpg format and no more than 800 pixels on the longest edge
Must have been taken on an Olympus E-* camera
Must have all EXIF data included for the organiser to verify.
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. The organiser may also enter the challenge (the entries are anonymous and the organiser is trusted to record votes accurately).

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. Voting on the challenge:-
Any registered member of the e-group forum may vote, including those who submit entries.
Those who submit entries may vote for their own photo but are expected to allot their choices fairly on perceived merit.
Voters should list their three choices in order of preference, by display number and title to avoid confusion.
Points will be allotted as follows: three to first choice, two to second choice, one to third choice.

Re: Challenge #50 - TRANQILLITY

Thanks Chris, interesting subject. Did you want to change the "vote for your own" rule?

Ciao ... John

Re: Challenge #50 - TRANQILLITY

I had thought about it, but I do not think it would be correct of me change the rules without the permission of Ian and the Moderators.

Perhaps Ian or the Moderators could start a thread to canvas members opinions on the rights and wrongs of “voting for your own” ?

Never vote for your own - bad sport. Just like the Eurovision contest!
