JIMBOX01 - 4
SDLROB - 2
SPECDECIBLE - 2
RACHIE_D - 2
HAZ - 2
BLAKE - 2
DENORTH - 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 January 31st, and voting opens from then until 23.59 on February 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 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 January 2014 Planet-F1 Forum photo competition title is:

REFLECTIONS

Congrats on the win :-)
I thought as it was the beginning of a new year, I'd have another go with the photo comp.
The City of Bath, my home...
Image

Now your probably wondering why I've picked this for this month's when it is 'reflection' well for that let me give a little detail.

Bath is my hometown, it's where I've spent most of my life, and I've just recently moved back to the City after a couple of years away due to mum's death back in 2010 (I swear i am not going for the sob factor here, just explaining why I've picked this!)
I took this on one of the first walks I did around the city when I moved back. Bath is situated in a valley, and we have a park that is sat on part of a hill, which has this amazing view out across the city, where you can see most of the centre of the city, and I often take a walk up there when I want some peace and quiet, to give me time to reflect on things.

Yeah it's a bit of a stretch, but I searched my entire library and couldn't find anything else that fitted the theme of reflection.

Thanks guys...

It is particularly meaningful for me considering that the pic was my parents, and given the quality of the competition in this forum.

Now, i am trying to narrow my choices for entries for this month....

Was going to use this but I've used it before so felt a bit cheeky:
Image

So thought I'd go for this but it's pretty small and not quite clear enough:
Image

Instead I'm going to see what January brings me. There's another picture I contemplated but the orientation irritates me so let's just not go there...

And a massive congrats to you Blake, it really is a lovely picture.

Edit: Been a hectic month so will stick with that second picture instead!

some I am toying with... as I started looking, I was surprised at how many "popped" up... of course, when there are almost 500mg of photos on the external hard drive, that is a lot to choose from!

Anything more "American" than a 1930 Lincoln roadster with an American flag reflected in the chrome of the headlights? A large American flag was on the wall behind the car.
Image

This from my recent trip to Slovenia, Croatia & Montenegro... The Church of the Assumption on Lake Bled with the Bled Castle in the background.
Image

This time, it is back to Hawaii.... Ko-Olina, as a Palm tree is reflected in the glass of this small chapel as sunset approaches.

Gold Beach, San Francisco

I was there in 2012 and the beach was like a giant mirror.I may change the picture to another one, but this is the only photo from that evening that I currently have access to.

Have quite a lot to choose from, but can't be bothered going through them, so might just use this one.

Original was too big!
Here's a smaller one.

As I've just gotten my first 'proper' camera and we've been messing about in my photography class with light painting I thought I'd try something cool with a trophy. Hope it fits into the theme.

Taken in 2008. My old car waiting for it's new owner to collect it with my new car in the driveway in the background.
Not sure if it is clear but there is a reflection of a tree in the bonnet & a reflection of the houses on the other side of the street in the side windows.

I was about to come in with my usual joke about changing the rules so Jimbox01 is only allowed 9x9 pixels to give the rest of us a fighting chance, but looking at the entrants this month I think that everyone is really excelling themselves and it will end up being the strongest selection of photos in a competition to date.

It's certainly looking good so far, and we're only a quarter of the way through the month!

I'm not sure how to post images properly; I just uploaded the image to twitter, selected the 'img' setting and put in the link. Anything wrong there?

Hmmm, never entered one of these even though I am a photographer... I've put this one in though because I've always loved this shot I got of Kubica at Sepang in 2009. The reflection of his arms and the cockpit on his visor sort of gives it a stormtrooper look.

You should still enter, Howling Shadow. I suspect each one of us who have posted pictures are looking the other entries and saying "... I've got no chance."! I know that I am! There are some great pictures posted.

Isn't it great!

Please consider this photo as my entry for this month....

It is a small marina at the base of Otsego Lake in New York state... I loved the beautiful serenity of the finger lakes region of NY.

Just so happens I have a flickr set specifically for reflections...
Not sure if this gives a unfair advantage or not because it all comes down to what people like the look of best (i.e. personal taste), and there are some cracking shots entered, but I might withdraw mine just to be on the safe side - it's too big to qualify anyway. ;)

of course you should have, Denorth.... the main purpose is the sharing of photos and if you can't vote, I think that the admin has a points procedure for it. No big deal.

Personally, I can't believe how tough this vote is going to be... some really great photos by so many different members.

Already dropped Denorth a PM.

I'm glad I can't vote in these things, I'd spend longer doing this month's than I would actually modding.

But then what's the point of taking photos if no one is ever going to see them?
