July Challenge change.......

The present wide angle Challenge has very many excellent submissions. I note that many are landscapes. The July Challenge is Landscape, which I am seeing will be a repeat of the wide angle in many ways.

Thus I propose we change July's challenge to the "Frozen" subject as in September.

We only have a couple of days to sort this, can you give opinions on whether to change, and if so if the Frozen subject is OK, or, if you can propose and alternative subject.

Frozen seems quite good as the sports season is well under way, not that the subject has to be anything to do with sports.....

TIA

Mark j

Re: July Challenge change.......

Sounds good to me, particularly as we're in the beginnings of a heat wave!

Good idea, Mark. Frozen sounds fine.

Your interpretation entirely Paul, look in your fridge...………………

Yes I should have seen it coming....an administrative cock -up I suppose...……….

You are welcome to suggest an alternative...………, or resist and stay with landscape...…………….

We could make it "OPEN" of course if others have prepared landscapes.

Dim Problemio as we say in Wales...…………..

Given the unprecedented heat wave in Europe at present (45.9 in Southern France today - unbelievable), I'd say that frozen would be a suitable topic for us.

July 2019------------------Frozen (As in Action)

These two statements seem to be ad odds with each other. Can I only submit a picture of the inside of my freezer if there is some action going on in there?

What's your freezer like

You can submit any picture you like, the rest of us will decide how good the photo is and vote accordingly.

When thinking of "Frozen (in Action)" I think we were leaning towards sports type photos, or birds in flight or otherwise..but you can interpret as you wish...

Sorry to change the Challenge, but I now see the Wide Angle subject has many Landscapes, which was July's subject.....
