Now that the weekly competition is in the Gallery section, just a reminder that every week our competition runs on automatically.

You can now upload directly into the Competition without worrying too much about image size and without needing to link to Photobucket or the like.

PentaxAngel has set this week's theme, so let's show our fellow member proper support!
Best regards, John

Agreed.

It is just slightly unfortunate that we had this topic in February, whcih might be affecting the number of entries or maybe everyone is away on their summer hols

Just in case PentaxAngel is thinking of choosing me as the winner (haha), I will be on vacation and unable to set the theme or judge. So second place would be fine.

If that happens to anyone I can always set the competition on your behalf. Or you could find an Internet Cafe!

Hoping to submit an entry but my chosen subject is weather dependent and at the moment it is not looking very hopeful.

I like Nimitz "Castle" a lot. Lovely sky, good tonality in the castle. I just keep wondering how it would look if it got the B & W Infrared treatment

An interesting thought - I think that it could well look even more dramatic.

My thought exactly. The dark blue sky, wonderful clouds and greens would suit this as a perfect candidate

Congratulations to the winners and we'll look forward to Lilly setting the new competition. An auto e-mail will trigger the process, so we'll see how that works.

I suspect the lack of comments is because of a discomfort with English, which I'm sure we can understand as we have members from all over the world who have various native languages.

Many thanks to PentaxAngel for selecting the winners.
Best regards, John

The first version I liked. The last one I love. Knowing the last one was a "quicky" to satisfy our needs I can only imagine the impact it gets, when you really start to work the image.
