RULES:

For the sake of the servers, we ask that the length of the photo on the longest side be no more than 1024 pixels - this can be set when uploading images to picture hosting websites.

The contest ends at 11.59 UK time on June 30th, and voting opens from then until 23.59 on July 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 June 2014 Planet-F1 Forum photo competition title is:

MY BEST FRIEND(S)

The scores from May, with a tight fight at the top for what I was surprised to learn is only Alien's second win:

Alienturnedhuman - 37
Jimbox01 - 34
Denorth - 32
SDLRob - 25
Blake - 23
Rachie_D - 16
Covalent - 8

Incidentally this month's theme comes from our runner-up as the winner failed to provide a suggestion.

Damnit! I was too busy focussing on reporting the hidden flash element on the forum in my reply message I forgot to include my topic if I won!

I guess I'll just have to try to win again this month so you can all find out what my topic would have been!

Ah, PF1's rebel alliance. I'm not even going to ask what Tufty had in that cake.

[And the April typo has been fixed, thank you Jimbox!]

I am fighting with Flickr again. Just as figure out how to use the new flickr to get my images, they took away all the data on the side of the individual photo where you could download and select sizes (the 3 dots). Am I that damn dumb, or are they really going all-out to make it unuseable?

I hope this is not too large. This is my late father with my granddaughter. She was "his girl" and she was equally possive. Here she is teaching him some kind of cheerleading routine...

I have a few I can enter. I'll do my best Jimbox01 impression, but with less accomplished photographs ;)

This was taken a few years ago back in the south of France. It is one of the local kids divebombing my friend in the rubber ring
Image

Here are my friends in the middle of a snowball fight:
Image

My sister and her then boyfriend - now husband - in Liverpool:
Image

This is a very young me and my girlfriend at the time, which I took on a timer (although I guess this technically doesn't count as I'm no longer in contact, so I'm no longer 'friends')
Image

I'll have a think which I want to enter, but it's probably one of the first two.

To clarify, as the deadline looms, this will be my entry for this month.

And thanks for the kind comments, if PF1 Mod agrees, you guys can all have double votes this month.
