JIMBOX01 - 4
SDLROB - 2
SPECDECIBLE - 2
RACHIE_D - 2
HAZ - 2
DENORTH - 1
BLAKE - 1

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 11.59 UK time on November 30th, and voting opens from then until 23.59 on December 5th.

Only entrants may vote, and must submit their top 5 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 10 points [points are allocated as 10 for each first-placed vote, 6 for 2nd, 4 for 3rd. 3 for 4th and 2 for 5th] to redress the balance, unless for any reason the member in question is unavailable during voting, in which case alternative arrangements may be made in advance.

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 2013 Planet-F1 Forum photo competition title is:

HAPPY

Spoiler (click to show)

I think that the wing on your entry flexes more than the regulations allows, or you are using traction control, or your floor heats up to bend, or an illegal engine map.

Damn! (in a nice way :) )
I wasn't expecting this, sorry about the theme, it just popped into my head.
Thanks for the votes though.


Anyway, this is what makes me happy:

This makes me laugh - think the horse was happy, but who know!

Damn - I was going to use a picture of a horse doing that!

The horse isn't actually smiling, mind you. It's using the Flehmen Response to better be able to smell, analyse and process a scent.

I wasn't intending using that in the competition, it just makes me laugh.

Bunny (the horse) can be a bit of a stroppy character at times, so I'm never really sure if she's happy, and you're right about the Flehmen thingy, because what you can't see in the photo is someone standing out of shot waving a packet of Polo mints around.

Wasn't sure what to enter for this, but I took this at my cousin's wedding, and if a wedding isn't happy (excluding the one from Peep Show) then what is?

Wedding

It all depends on whether you are one of those poor individuals known as groomsmen who have to get gussied up in a tux when it is 100+F at an outside wedding. I wasn't happy at all, alien!
;)


I am going to sit this month out gang, too much stuff going on to look for the pics, and I fly out on Sunday. Good look to all the entries... I'll see if I can't do better next month!

Last year I was at a wedding where it rained when the bridesmaids were getting to the church gate - cue me and the other usher legging it out there in our lovely suits to ensure the dresses stayed dry! Was a great day though.

As for me, my thanks to SDLRob for being a little hyper atop Eau Rouge last year:

I'm new around here and this is my first entry in the photo contest! It's an old Polaroid I shot of my sister-in-law.
