September 2019 Challenge: Landscape

September 2019 Photo Challenge Subject; Landscape

To enter, simply post your picture in this thread between now and 30th September. 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 favourites 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 October 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), or 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 have entered 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!

Taken from the slopes of Breariach at about 3500ft in the Cairngorms - facing South down Glen Dee. Ben Macdui on the left, Carn 'a Maim in the middle and Devil's Point and slopes of Cairn Toul on right.

Ten years ago - I'm not sure that I'd make it up there now!

Re: September 2019 Challenge: Landscape



During a 10 day long wander around part of Queensland, I paid a visit to an old friend who works for the Council (municipality) in Emerald in Central Queensland. He insisted on showing me the sights, which included a dawn stroll around the Botanic Gardens. I captured this photo as the sun was rising and the sunlight was playing on the tops of distant trees.
