RULES:

For the sake of the servers, we ask that the length of the photo on the longest side be no more than 1200 pixels - this can be set when uploading images to picture hosting websites.

The contest ends at 23.59 UK time on March 31st, and voting opens from then until 23.59 on April 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 15 points [points are allocated as 15 for each first-placed vote, 10 for 2nd, 6 for 3rd, 3 for 4th and 1 for 5th] to redress the balance, unless for any reason the member in question is unavailable during voting, in which case alternative arrangements should be made in advance.

5 points are also on offer to the member who contributes the most creative interpretation of the subject matter, at my discretion where appropriate.

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 February 2015 Planet-F1 Forum photo competition title is:

EPIC

No front number plate, and if it was taken before October 2014, no tax disc!

Not an entry, just thought it was an 'epic' moment and wanted to share.

This is a Sparrowhawk, it landed a few feet from me last Saturday when I was out doing stuff in the garden, and stayed long enough for me to go and get the camera.

Heavily cropped, so image quality isn't as good as I would have liked but you can't have everything.

Why not make it an entry, Jim? You've got a solid history in the competition, and it's a decent photo.

I've already entered a photo, so can't enter another - it's against the law!

Finally putting in a entry, or at least a place holder until something better...

This was epic to me... especially after walking across it... The Brooklyn Bridge

So you have, my apologies! It's been a long month!

Epic to me because it meant I was finally in NYC. Exactly a year ago today I lived one of my dreams and I love this photo. It isn't the bets quality but the sky looks fantastic next to the colours of Liberty IMO.
