Challenge #73. April 2013. 'Winter'
« on: April 01, 2013, 07:59:52 PM »
Challenge #73. April 2013. 'Winter' is now open.

This challenge is about 'WINTER'. Most of us who live in the northern hemisphere have just had a good idea of what winter can throw at us. Even those who live nearer to the equator and never see ice, unless it's in their drink, will have winter conditions specific to them. Those in the southern hemisphere, who are upside down, may have to look back in their archives. So think long and hard, winter is not only about snow and ice and cold.

Make your entries reflect what 'winter' means to you, wherever you live in the world.


General guidelines.

A maximum of four (4) entries per forum member are allowed and should be posted in this thread. Simply "reply" to this post to make your submissions. Do not include photos that were submitted in previous challenges, nor photos posted in the current month, April 2013. However you may submit non challenge photos that you have posted previously in this or any other forum.

Including the exif data and the name and location of the subject above your photo would be helpful but not mandatory and is the only information permitted together with your entry.

The maximum image size permitted is 800 pixels on the longest side. If larger, the forum software will automatically reduce the image size to 800 pixels, possibly at the expense of photo quality. The maximum file size permitted is 200KB. Entries larger than 200KB (200.01KB is too large) will not be considered for short-listing. (Contributors will not be asked to re-post).

To ensure fair and unbiased voting, there can be no comments on submissions. Comments on submissions, in this post or anywhere else in Dynax Digital, will be deleted without discussion.

Please note the Standard Rules for Monthly Challenges. See here....

Entries close on Tuesday, April 30th, 2013 at 10PM EST. (3AM GMT)

Thank you and good luck,
