Congratulations Jimbox01 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
MAY13 - CITY STREETS - BLAKE - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=7089
JUN13 - CLOUDS - HAZ - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=7404
JUL13 - SUMMER - JIMBOX01 - viewtopic.php?f=5&p=307086#p307086

JIMBOX01 - 3
SDLROB - 2
SPECDECIBLE - 2
RACHIE_D - 1
DENORTH - 1
BLAKE - 1
HAZ - 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 August 31st, and voting opens from then until 23.59 on September 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 August 2013 Planet-F1 Forum photo competition title is:

ABSTRACT/QUIRKY

[Or whatever Jimbox01 enters and wins with] :P

Hello Mr/Ms/Mrs PF1-Mod,

I think everyone did vote (maybe you forgot to delete that bit when you copied it from last month), is it possible to change/amend the theme please? I was sure Mikey was going to get it (he got my vote anyway), so didn't give it much thought, can we change it to say Abstract/Quirky - anything a bit different or unusual.

And thanks to everyone who voted. :)

Sunsets would have been much easier, but how about...

My feet


Carwash from inside the car


Watering can


Anything with distinct shapes, colours, or paterns - or anything a bit strange, weird or quirky.

Couldn't vote in the last comp as BT decided to give me the run around for a month with fixing the phone line in my new place...

Don't get me started on BT at the moment! Argh! Nice picture though.

Congrats JimBox! Deserved, as usual :D

I'm assuming this'll do for quirky though, right?

I'll call it 'Emrys at Gringotts'

Makes me smile for some reason. :) and very nice colour BTW

@SDLRob are you sure your photo shouldn't be "through the beer goggles" ? - we've seen what you get up to at races...

LMAO!!!!!

Nope, I can safely assure you all that I was stone sober when I took that photo. It was taken through the fence on the bridge over the Wellington straight.... There were a few knot holes and it ended up being an interesting photo.

This one is gonna be an impossible contest for me. No inspiration for some reason, and even if I did have I can't compete with what you guys have already entered.

Just pick a nice colourful photo that's totally out of focus, rotate it 180 degrees, and call it a Jackson Pollock.
Or you could spin round on the spot while pressing the shutter.
Something reflected in a window or water.
The world's your lobster...

Tufts! Not seen you on here in an aaaaage! (Although it could just be differing thread choices). Just see how you feel at the end of the month, you could end up finding something awesome for the topic before it's out :)

I enter these things every month! Well, except the one I set the record for the lowest ever score in :P

I've created something out of my cousin's birthday present - a car park, basically - and some stationery and money. When I find the cable for my camera I'll see if it's any good...

So everyone has managed to take decent pics except Tufty who has instead opened his cousin's birthday present? Normal service resumes then :P

Well, I have finally dug through a few thousand photos in search of some entry possibilities...and found more than I dare to post. So now I have gone from not having any to having to narrow down the choices. Lets start with these...

This pic was taken in Louisville, Kentucky earlier this year. It is actually a pair of khaki pants multiplied over and over and over.
Image

I don't know that this palm leaf pic from Oahu, Hawaii is "abstract", but I guess it depends on how you are looking at it.
Image

This pic of a 1930 Lincoln LeBaron Roadster here in our Classic Car Collection was fun with the reflections in the chrome... a flag that was on the wall, and a nearby car.
Image

This is a wall at the Grotto of the Redemption in Iowa. It actually looks like something I might have painted myself when I was in college except for the muted colors.

Thanks, guys... As I said, once I started looking and got my mind in the "abstract", I found it quite easy to find possible pics... here are a few more that I am considering that you might enjoy.

Now, Tufty, get your mind out of the gutter...
;)
This really is a flower found in Waimea Valley on Oahu, Hawaii. I believe it is an Anthurium.

Jimbox...

There was this wonderful, huge disc with reflecting panels in downtown Louisville, and I couldn't resist "playing" with it. It was also at night, so that gave it an entirely different look than it was in daylight.

Easy now, Tufty, you are being too tough on yourself.

This is my favorite thread in the forum... seriously.
