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

ZOO ANIMALS

Well done Blake, awesome landscape last month :]

(and PF-1 Mod, it's not a fish, it's an axolotl!)

p.s. Is it an animal/animals that are in a zoo when you took the photo, animals that you'd usually expect to find in a zoo but happen to be wild, or animals that are in captivity when you took the photo?

(Sorry :blush: )

How ever you choose to interpret the theme is valid. Creative interpretations are more likely to get the bonus points as well.

A couple of pics that I am considering.

This one I liked in part because of the incredible color... it is an Eastern Green Mamba... and i was quite pleased that there was glass between us!

A Pronghorn Antelope just lounging around and it would almost appear that he is having a conversation...

lastly... for now... "nice kitty..." - I was thankful for this very cooperative Tiger.

This is why the thread follows the forum's rules about images ;)
