Its a pretty wide open theme. Anything out of doors with no sky. That covers about 75% of my entire output. Skies are what I find most difficult to get right.

Should be another well subscribed comp given the broad theme

Perhaps not as wide as it appears, David - as I interpret it, the theme 'No sky' seems to imply an image which somehow demonstrates a decision to omit sky, not just anything without a sky. But I may be wrong. And given it can be interpreted extremely broadly, I think Mark will have his work cut out judging!

Perhaps you're right Andrew but however you interpret it 'No sky' means just that.
Coker's interpretation is a nice piece of humour.

Love it - but was it taken outside?

A prize has been announced for the winner of the next weekly competition. Surely that is now a disincentive to win this one. I'll look for a crap photo, of which I have no shortage.
You can see some of my photos here if you are so inclined

I don't see why, I think it would be a great honour to select and judge competition #200!
Best regards, John
