SDLROB - 2
SPECDECIBLE - 2
RACHIE_D - 2
HAZ - 2
BLAKE - 2
DENORTH - 1
TOBY - 1
MACCA84 - 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 February 28th, and voting opens from then until 23.59 on March 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 February 2014 Planet-F1 Forum photo competition title is:

DECAY

Congrats, macca...

Well deserved, and to win with the quality (and quantity) of entries from last month is particularly impressive.
:)

Off on holiday for 12 days, no one's come up with anything yet, so here are a few ideas - I'll get rid of them when I get back.

The company I work for recently moved premises to an aircraft hangar from a former RAF base that is being converted in to a business park.

As they are the first business on the base the rest of it is pretty much derelict having been in disuse since the 1970s. As the weather was nice at my lunch break I went around and snapped these photos on my phone:

My boss did not only buy two of the hangars, he also bought the runway, so he could land his plane there and fly to work on occasion. It also means we can use it for straight line speed testing our cars, it's 800 metres long (the two main 2km runways have been broken up) but its effectively like having a mini Top Gear test track.

I took this panorama on the runway as well:

I will take my DSLR around tomorrow if the weather holds and try to get some better shots.

Me thinks you may need a little bit of updating or remodeling in your new office, Alien!

I'll second that, we've had flying cutlery here all morning. Why there is cutlery outside, I have no idea...

Edited your post to fix it. In future, open the image in a new tab, or copy image location [either way, right-click] and put that address in the img tags. Not just the web address.

Today was terrible, with the winds blowing so strong against the doors it was almost impossible to open.

However this was the view from my window yesterday when I woke up

Until today I thought the flooding was just a new pseudo reality disaster drama by the Beeb:

Here's my entry for this month. I had been meaning to go and photograph this building for a while now. It's a folly built on the Powderham estate now fallen in major disrepair. I had enough of a break in the lashing rain to drive out there yesterday and take a few pictures. The whole album is Here for those who want to see it. It's all boarded up so interior pictures taken by poking phone through various gaps between wood and masonry. :lol:

Here's the one for the submission.
