JIMBOX01 - 4
SDLROB - 2
SPECDECIBLE - 2
RACHIE_D - 2
HAZ - 2
DENORTH - 1
BLAKE - 1
Toby - 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 December 31st, and voting opens from then until 23.59 on January 5th.

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 10 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 December 2013 Planet-F1 Forum photo competition title is:

EXCITEMENT

Well I waited for the last vote to come in and it never did. Shame, I was hoping something might swing it for Tufty to win just to see the reactions to his topic suggestion - "Bah, Humbug".

Anyway, final results:

Toby - 30
SDLRob - 24
Haz - 24
Tufty - 22
AlienTurnedHuman - 11
Captain Slack - 4 [Down from 14 for not voting].

Thanks everybody! Winning on debut is always a good thing - and I'm getting a new camera tonight so I'll be able to contribute more often let's hope.

We are who we are, thank you boys, I fought like a lion etc. :thumbup: :thumbup:

I did send in a vote, but apparently the forum ate it! It's not showing in my sent mail or outbox. Dammit! :?

I'm sure there's a rule about indecent images somewhere... :P

For someone who really doesn't do person-photography these last two subjects have been really challenging... :lol: Maybe I'll have to skip this one too if I don't happen to find something suitable!

It doesn't have to be a photo of a person, it can be anything you feel reflects or causes excitement.

I find the two topics... happy and excited too similar, personally. However, I will try to find something that fits.

We are bound by the will of the winners Blake. I still wonder if I should have bent the rules and given you Tufty's Bah, Humbug though!

Oh Rob. They were nice bits of cake!

As for my entry, I'll have to see what I can do over the weekend.

Congrats Toby, nice one.

Was going to use this (2 TDF champions in the same shot in the Olympic road race is quite exciting), but I've been beaten to it with the sports theme...

Greenlaning on Salisbury Plain last weekend was pretty exciting.

My daughter, the first day she walked in 1972, we were all excited.

Not too good with with modifying pics & have managed to lose it. Will have to scan it again when I find it.

I am entering a picture of my parents, taken in Hawaii in 2004, my mother & I's first visit to the islands, and the first time my father had been there since he was there as a sailor in WWII. With both of them having passed on now, this is one of my favorite pics.

Nice pic Blake. I hope I'm still going to exotic places and having parrots photographed with me when I'm old.

Actually come to think of it I would very much like to do the Hawaii and parrots thing before I leave my 40's :-D

MrMuttley,

By all means, it is a trip worth taking. We were on the island of Oahu, and it is the most populated... so that is a bit of a hassle at times, but also it has it's benefits as well. When you are ready to take that trip let me know and I will give you some suggestions as to what to see, and how to do it as cheaply as possible.... short of my "cheap" trip recipe... ie have a daughter & family living there to save me hotel rates!
:)
