Trigger finger getting itchy......Ready to fire......

Oh well, more shots of the kids doing tricks off the diving board. Need more practice with that anyway. ("One more time, you're blurry." "Awww, mooo-ooommmmm!")

I have already started manipulating my image, which is tricky not knowing the subject matter.

Once known a serious amount of manipulation might be required !

p.s. The smilies seem to have gone for a lie down.

We need to impress on people that if you enter the Weekly Competition you do need to fire up your computer on a Monday morning !

If not, I will generate a new competition later and he can judge it if he so wishes.

Hi All

I have created a new competition, but it is apparently waiting to be moderated - or so it says.

I have also put on a grovelling apology on the #54 thread for the delay in creating it

Best Regards

Might be quicker just to post the topic/theme for the new competition here whilst you wait for the issue to be sorted. That way people can get started right away.

Weekly competition #55

The competition I have added (honest) is
"The World Today"

I then write something along the lines of
"something that makes you think of the modern world - good or bad!"

I PM'ed two moderators when I put the competition up to tell them of the problem.

Hopefully they will pick their messages up soon.

The new thread of competitions needs Admin to activate it. I have asked them to do so, so it will appear very soon. All future comps will roll forwards automatically, so in future there will be no delay.

If needs be I can now create one that activates instantly, but we don't want two going at the same time!

Please prepare your images and soon...soon....
Best regards, John
