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 November 30th, and voting opens from then until 23.59 on December 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 November 2015 Planet-F1 Forum photo competition title is:

EYES

Congratulations Blake!

Blake is on a three time roll. Blake vs Jimbox01 is like Hamilton catching up on Vettel, now only one behind...

:lol:

Thanks, Alien...

There is one major error in your analogy though. Compared to Jimbox, I am more like Lake Speed... not even remotely in the same class. His photos are often so phnomenal.

Do you have some great ideas for eyes?

Lets get this started...

Last week I visited the Henry Doorly Zoo, rated #1 in the world by Travel Advisor, and though I only saw a fraction of it, I did have some fun with the camera...

This one was taken in the Lied Rainforest of a de Brazza's Monkey...
Image

From the Hubbard Gorilla Valley
Image

And from the Cat Complex... a Puma
Image

and from Mt.Rushmore... President Abe Lincoln
Image


Have fun all...

Until I saw that pic of Abe Lincoln, I never knew you could actually go inside the sculpture. I didn't know that Team America was only half exaggerating and always assumed it was just carved into the cliff face and nothing more.

Sorry I didn't vote last month. I didn't think I'd entered and then forgot to reply to the email. :blush:

Anyway, here's some to make up for it - only one eye in each photo unfortunately, so I don't think any of them would qualify as an entry.

Self Portrait

Giant Killer Wasp

Henry - a colleagues son, taken a few years ago.

Why wouldnt they qualify, jimbox.... they are exactly the kind "eyes" that I was hoping to see, and in your case, expecting... you have such great skills.

We'll take "Self Portrait" as Jimbox's entry. Votes to me ASAP please.
