Challenge #27 - June 2009 - Peace
« on: June 03, 2009, 01:41:43 PM »
Challenge #27 - June 2009 - "Peace"  is now open!

The Theme for this challenge is Peace, it is fairly open to interpretation, but the relatedness must be obvious. This is perhaps the easiest challenge to be creative with.

Some ideas
- People sleeping, puppy dogs dozing, cats napping
- Reading, relaxing, resting
- Flowers in gun barrels
- hippies in the summer of love
- doves
- Japanese paper cranes
- Victory sign (made with fingers)
- ...anything

A maximum of 4 entries per forum member are allowed and should be posted in this thread.

Maximum image size is 800 pixels on the longer side, and 200 KB in size - entries larger than this will not be considered for short-listing (contributors will be asked to re-post). Please note the standard challenge rules and posting guidelines.

Including EXIF info (shutter speed, aperture, focal length, camera model, lens, etc) is not mandatory but is encouraged and welcomed.

Please remember there can be no comments on people's submissions for the challenges (to keep the voting fair). Comments on submissions will be deleted without discussion.

Entries close at 10.00 pm (Tokyo Time; 1pm GMT) on June 30th

Relaxing outside my dorm's balcony where we set up beds for the night.  This beautiful sunset watched over us.

It's not the camera, nor the lens, but the person behind the camera that makes the difference.

Uncle Gus took time out to maybe find his peace, who knows, he looked content so we left him there for a while. Taken out side this church in a small village in france.
