Challenge #35 - February 2010 - "Orange"
« on: February 01, 2010, 12:27:34 AM »
Now Open, challenge #35. The Challenge for February is 'Orange'

I actually don't want to say too much up this topic as I think it is pretty much self-explanatory. Either, you take the topic literally and I will find lot's of fruits in this thread by the end of this month ;) or you might go with the topic in relation to colour. Nevertheless, should you go with the later version please make sure that "orange" is the dominant colour in the image. Soooo...a sunset with a tintsy little orange sun would probably not make it to the top of my list :mrgreen:

Any questions- please pm me.

Here are the technicalities:

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 shortlisting (contributors will be asked to repost).

Entries close at 10.00 pm on Sunday, February 28th  PDT (= UTC/GMT -8)

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

Please note the standard challenge rules and posting guidelines.

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.

Have fun!

Stef. :P
