AUG13 - ABSTRACT/QUIRKY - RACHIE_D viewtopic.php?f=5&t=8139

JIMBOX01 - 3
SDLROB - 2
SPECDECIBLE - 2
RACHIE_D - 2
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 September 30th, and voting opens from then until 23.59 on October 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 September 2013 Planet-F1 Forum photo competition title is:

NATURE

Well done Rachie, you deserved that win!

Image

A wasp's nest we accidentally dug up a week ago. They've partially repaired the roof and amazingly not stung anyone. Seems pretty unique to me.

Incidentally exactly the photo I've used in another contest that started the day before!

Cheers guys! I do think I cheated using a cute cuddly toy though. (Emrys would also like to say thank you)

Quick question, how much are we allowed to mess with the pictures? I have one in mind that some is in colour and some is black and white...

You can enter it, but I can't guarantee post-processing won't affect others' votes [either positively or negatively]. As long as you took it and hasn't been photoshopped beyond being a photo, it's fair game.

I'd say post it.... We're only a day or so into this months comp, so you can change it later if people aren't happy....IMHO.

Thanks for the info guys! This is the picture but that is definitely subject to change, might do just to be on the safe side. Anyway, here it is for now!

thanks, Jimbox01, good to know it. It's clever stuff and makes pictures nice.

I was actually trying to get info what was changed on that picture (apart from making background black), if anything

Ooo sorry, I've not been around much the past couple of days! I think I messed around with the contrast and brightness (I tend to make the pictures much darker). It was a couple of months ago now though, so can't actually remember. Here's a link to the original. So the colours are more vivid than they were. I only use the software they provide so use the 'splash' function to bring out the different colours.

Edited to mention that Jombox01's pictures are ace. You should write some simple blog posts somewhere about understanding cameras because I have no idea what half the functions on my camera mean so only use the setups already prepared.

That'll teach me for making assumptions - and trying to answer other people's questions. :lol:

No eating the hedgehog! Took ages to get it looking alive again, poor thing was collapsed on the path and I had to pour water over its snout before it found the energy to wander off again. I didn't save him to be fed to your monsters :P

Oh Tufty. I thought for a moment you meant you'd posed a dead hedgehog o.O

As a fan of Disc Golf (ie frisbee), I have come across many a hazard... water, trees, thorn bushes...... but this one topped them all. Needless to say... "nature" had its way, as we all waited until our "friend" chose to move on.

In my hand, Mod... There are a lot of "big snakes" in America, I am told. In this case,, however, I was wishing I had a longer zoom, and hoping the snake was not tiddled off (and apparently it was not).
:P

What was truly funny though was that the owner of the disc was a young man from southern California, a professional disc golfer, who had never seen a snake of this sort in the live, never even dreamed/nightmared that he would. He was totally beside himself as for what to do. Although I was not playing, was only an observer on this day, because I had been one who helped design the course, the whole foursome turned to me for an "official" ruling. Patience seemed like the "ruling". Bull snakes, while not poisonous, are often incredibly bad tempered and are more aggressive than a Rattlesnake, which is what most thought it was. Neither way did we want to mess with it.
;)

hmmm Jimbox01 is currently leading... might have to enter this month to fix that little problem. Haven't entered a photo since April's contest, might be a good theme to get back into it.

I wouldn't bother, I don't think anything stands a chance against Tufty's hedgehog - not even Blake's big snake! ;)

Not trying to make a point. My friend is a wedding photographer and when I did a picture with one colour on a black and white background he made the same joke to me and pointed me to that parody website. I thought people would find it funny.

It is funny, just didn't quite get the context - unless you've been to a naturist wedding? :)


Anyway, I thought you were against the whole concept of marriage (and by extension weddings), but now it turns out your friends with the establishment! 8O ;)
