Title: Challenge #69 - December 2012 - 'Water'
Post by: Stef. on December 01, 2012, 12:07:43 AM
Now Open, challenge #69. The Challenge for December 2012 is 'Water'

Hello everybody! It is my turn to host this month's challenge... :mrgreen:
It is time for you to submit some images for this month's challenge which is 'water'.

I guess what I am looking for are images where 'water" in whatever form or shape is the main subject matter. Look below at the weblinks for some great examples...let your phantasy wander...consider perhaps macro shots; water scapes; b+w; water falls; rainy days; puddles; reflections...

Here are some samples:

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 Monday, December 31st 2012 GMT

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
