Congratulations Specdecible for winning last month's competition. Below are the history, rules and topic of this contest.

COMPETITION HISTORY:
SEP12 - SPA - JIMBOX01 - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=3845
OCT12 - MOVEMENT & MOTION - SPECDECIBLE - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=4319
NOV12 - DARKNESS - RACHIE_D - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=5014
DEC12 - SOUND - JIMBOX01 - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=5592&p=201106#p201106
JAN13 - POWER - SDLROB - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=5845
FEB13 - BOATS - DENORTH - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=6049
MAR13 - TIRES/TYRES - SDLROB - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=6276&p=233803#p233803
APR13 - FOOD - SPECDECIBLE - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=6706

JIMBOX01 - 2
SDLROB - 2
SPECDECIBLE - 2
RACHIE_D - 1
DENORTH - 1

RULES:

For the sake of the servers, we ask that the length of the photo on the longest side be no more than 900 pixels - this can be set when uploading images to picture hosting websites.

The contest ends at 11.59 UK time on May 31st, and voting opens from then until 23.59 on June 3rd.

Only entrants may vote, and must submit their top 5 choices to me, 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 five 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.

I think that about covers the rules, other than to add that 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 2013 Planet-F1 Forum photo competition title is:

CITY STREETS

For those who are interested, the full scores - bearing in mind Kamian and ClareBear203 lose 5 points each for not voting:

Specdecible - 42 (highest score ever, but then it was the most entered contest to date)
SDLRob - 36
Kamian - 35 (should have been 2nd with 40 but for the penalty)
Asphalt_World - 30
Rachie_D - 26
Denorth - 18
Covalent - 17
AlienTurnedHuman - 12
Jimbox01 - 2
Blake - 2
ClareBear203 - -5 (Let down in this case by equipment rather than ability, I think).

Tufty - -50 for making so much noise about entering and voting for half of the entrants and then doing nothing.

Thanks to everyone who voted, and particular congratulations to Kamian, SDLRob and Asphalt_World, all of whom led the competition at one point or another. Here's to another month of

Yay! and to win such a highly contested month too is a bonus. I'm not expecting my theme to get as many entrants as food, but hey I'd like to see what people will come up with.

Dammit :lol:

Congratulations Spec, t'was a lovely photo :D

I'm glad I didn't enter in the end, voting would have been impossible but my favourite five were at least the top five.

City Streets....

I know I have to have some decent examples from my travels, and I will continue to look ... however, for now, I will post one of my favorite photos that I have ever taken. Unfortunately, it was shot shot on an ancient Minolta point & shoot using 35mm film back in 1994 and then scanned electronically a few years ago, so the quality is not up to today's standards, not even mine minimal level.

This is a shot taken at Pompeii in 1994 on a dreary day. The picture shows one of the city streets, and in the distance you can see one of the blocks (and another further back) that were placed for people to cross over the street when it was running with water. The block was spaced so that the wagon wheels would not be encumbered. It was an incredible experience as I stood there and thought about when that street would have been a busy one.

Image

If this does not fit the topic, just let me know and I will give my other search a bit more vigor.
:nod:

While the women's vote here seems to be in favour of the naked cowboy, this is probably worthy of entry Jimbox. An impressive selection of shots though, as always.

They do say sex sells but you may be right, a photo of a semi naked cowboy may not be targeting the right audience - he was on the street in New York though.

Well this is my first entry. This pic was taken a few kilometers from my home. The place is Old Goa. This this was the original port of entry to Goa during the Portugese rule.

I've never bothered entering, but with this category and the beautiful city I live in, I'll give it a go. Quick question though, what the rules relating to digital lenses and effects? Is it just standard shots that are allowed?

There are no specific rules about photo editing or camera trickery, but some voters may rank you lower for any photoshopping etc. I'd advise avoiding anything beyond fine-tuning the contrast, colour and that sort of thing, but that's not binding.

difficult one, but found something that is interesting. Will decide which one later

EDIT: I finally had time to think a bit and I enter this picture from Lyttelton. This is a town that experiences two big earthquakes two years ago and that 'Hole' on left side is the way New Zealanders were coping with damages. There wasa very nice cafe there, but after it was destroyed they put a container as a temporary solution. Otherwise there wouldn't be any open cafe there - every single one was damaged.
Lyttelton - life goes on

Thanks for that, I'm really jealous.

Maybe we need a travel thread - somewhere to swap pics, talk about where you've been, were you're going, get ideas and all that stuff.
