Congratulations specdecible for winning last month's competition. Below are the history, rules and topic of this contest.

COMPETITION HISTORY:
SEP12 - SPA - JIMBOX01 - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=3845
OCT12 - MOVEMENT & MOTION - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=4319

RULES:

For the sake of the servers, we ask that the length of the photo on the longest side be no more than 900 pixels - this can be set when uploading images to picture hosting websites.

The contest ends at 23.59 UK time on November 31st, and voting opens from then until 23.59 on December 3rd.

Only entrants may vote, and must submit their top 3 choices to me, and NOT to one of the other mods - they will not oversee the competition unless I am unavailable for any reason.

Only one photo is permitted per member, and may be changed at any point until the deadline. The photo has to have been taken by the member posting it.

Members may not vote for themselves, and since not voting gives you a higher chance of winning, it will be penalised by a deduction of three points [points are allocated as 6 for each first-placed vote, 3 for 2nd and 1 for 3rd] to redress the balance, unless for any reason the member in question is unavailable during voting, in which case alternative arrangements will be made.

I think that about covers the rules, other than to add that indecent images are subject to the same rules in this thread as the rest of the forum.

All that remains is for me to announce the title. Therefore the November 2012 Planet-F1 Forum photo competition title is:

DARKNESS

Oh, apologies for the delay, we had a slight technical hitch and I ended up in the dark for 4 days, ironically.

Well done specdecible, very cool photo and nice theme.

I'm off until the end of the month as of Friday (missing the last two GPs :( ) so here's a quick entry before I go.

Lurking in the darkness...

Found it inside the church just round the corner from work.

Raw votes put you first with 16 points, then Jimbox_01 with 13.

3rd should be enchantment25 with 10, but since I received no vote from him he drops 3 points, putting SDLRob 3rd with 9 except he also didn't vote. Therefore AtrumVesica takes 3rd with 8 points. Beyond that, Nakojo had 4. I think it says a lot for the standards of the competition that the fight for both the win and 3rd place was so tightly fought.

I'm also considering a change of scoring system, to perhaps rank every entrant, or maybe just the top 5 in a slightly weighted scale. Any suggestions on that would be gratefully received, as I feel we should be able to award points to the majority, at least, of entrants.

EDIT - I may have a couple of shots that fit...

By connecting my DSLR to my telescope which tracks the night sky, I had it tracking M42 The Great Orion Nebula for this pic. You then take lots of long exposure photographs, 68 x 60 seconds in this case, and stack them all on top of one another. There is obviously quite a bit more to it than that but I won't bore you with the technicalities.

I have a sudden urge to buy a telescope! Seriously, that's an awesome photo :D

It's not my picture but I'm partial to this:

There is something spectacular about it being that dark. Anyway, it's not an entry as it isn't mine, I just really like it.

3 great photos since my last post, keep up the good work guys! Tufty, good move to change that, I think.

Mac - very nice indeed! Not sure I can justify changing the rules for it though, sorry.

Right now there are 6 entrants, and I'm experimenting with the points a little more. I'll be asking for everyone's top 5 entries, meaning at the moment everyone ranks all but their own photos when it comes to voting.

Obviously if others enter, for which there is still time, not everyone will receive points from everyone. The points will work as 10-6-4-3-2, with not voting losing a member 5 points (half a win, and also the average score of the top 5 places).

I know, I wasn't submitting it, I just think it is a very pleasant photo. Plus, it's a slow day here, gotta do something to fill the time...

I know I'm late so I do not expect it to count, but I just want this to be seen!
Took this when mountain biking to work the other day and thought the sun breaking over the horizon was really worth the early start...

Oops, I missed the start of December!

Tootsie, since I cocked up I'll let that in this time. That means our entrants are as follows:

Image

SDLRob - Untitled
Image
IMG_1870

Specdecible - Driving in the Dark

PM voting now open, until 23.59 on the 4th instead of the 3rd as a result of my delay.
