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 May 31st, and voting opens from then until 23.59 on June 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 April 2015 Planet-F1 Forum photo competition title is:

AIRCRAFT

Yes, we have a swear filter now. No, it doesn't change coffin to 'place of rest'.

Probably got about 50 I could upload. Not particularly clear shots but mildly interesting from an aircraft POV. I'll upload some later.

I hope this goes better than Hero - I couldn't find anything to shoot. But I may be able to catch some craft somewhere... umm...

Need to make up for missing the vote - in March! :blush:

This is one of the few relevant photos I can find. Pretty sure I have more, but it might take a while to find them.

Banana Man, just a heads-up: either nominate one of those photos or we will assume you entered the first one posted. You still have more than a week yet though so no rush.

Yeah I'll go with the Emirates shot. I've got a few more but they're all along the same lines.

I think that we've discovered that JimBox01 fights Lex Luthor at weekends.

Finally figured out how to get the image from my Flickr sets... it used to be so easy.

I may find better, but at least this will be a "place holder". This was the US Air Force Thunderbirds in Michigan a few years ago. Wish I had the 50x zoom then that I have now.

At first I thought those were the Candian Snowbirds, SDL.... until I Looked closer. I had the honor of seeing the Snowbirds on the same day as the Thunderbirds a few years ago... both were great. I am sure the Red Arrows are as well.

These pics are awesome. I couldn't find any aircraft to shoot and no time to drive out to airports. Hopefully next contest will be something more accessible.
