TOBY - 1

ALIENTURNEDHUMAN - 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 April 30th, and voting opens from then until 23.59 on May 5th.

Only entrants may vote, and must submit their top 5 choices to me along with a topic idea for next month - winner's choice carries - 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.

Please remember 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 April 2014 Planet-F1 Forum photo competition title is:

NEW

SDLRob - 22

Thanks guys, there were some excellent and very creative entries. Expecting to see lots of cute babies and new puppies etc. this month, but then you just never know - anyone got a new car?

No new baby for this old fart, no new puppies, and a new car? yeah right. Gonna have to work to come up with something this month....

Congrats though, Jimbox... your photo last month was stunning, and so very deserving. Though I would have rather owned the content of my photo than the content of yours!

I thought this one was going to be fairly easy, but obviously my brain works differently to other people's. :? 8O :uhoh:

How about anything that can be prefixed or suffixed with new:
New Angle/Perspective (anything shot from a slightly different/odd angle)
New Born (babies, baby animals etc.)
New Dawn (sunsets basically look the same so you could probably get away with one of those too)
New Growth (it's spring, there're plenty of flowers and stuff out there)
Shiny New... (anything new)
Fresh New Snow / New Tracks (most winter scenes could come under this)
Old v's New (e.g. architecture, cars, people etc. any shot that shows things from obviously different age groups/eras)
New Year (as in celebrations)
New York (bit specific)

There're loads more...

Well, Jimbox01 managed to pose a harder than expected topic and I forgot April only has 30 days. Good start.
