A big thank you to all the people who voted for my entry last month, i feel humbled that mine was chosen amongst so many fine entries, still it was nice to see a good spread of the votes and in particular those who got their very first vote in the comp, thats all you need to get some encouragement:thumbsup:

I did give the theme a lot of thought to try and open up the comp a bit to suit all styles of photography, so no excuses not to enter this month guys and girls:D

It is whatever you think "more than one" means. That is the beauty of the competition, it is up to your imagination.

I know what you mean. Usually - there is a divide between photos which really scream the theme, and those which are great photos and fit within the theme. So I don't think you have to over-think it as long as you take an appealing photo.

For inspiration, keep an eye on the 'it's not valid' thread - hopefully some archive shots will appear on there which might throw out some ideas.

A few people have entered photo mosaics too (i.e. multiple photos in a grid).

Hi Mark, the theme is simpler than it seems, a photograph of anything that portrays more than one of the same object in it, can be anything you like.

Took the wife to the dentist today and took the camera with me to test the theme, parked in a non descript residential road, nothing interesting there at all, then these guys walked by, did not have time to alter the camera setting, i think it was set on landscape program, just got 2 shots off, so its not the best of photographs but i think its enough for you get the gist of the theme.
Look forward to seeing you have a go:)

MORE THAN ONE LADDER.

Yes, it will still have the EXIF for the mods to view if you send the original straight-from-camera image to Zone.

Mark your camera will have all the info (exif) needed if you right click on your photo and then click on properties it will show them, always use `save as`before editing your photo in any way this preserves the original photo with exif.

No problem using a compact, my winning photo was taken with an £150 compact camera:)

No problem, so if i take it, keep the original and make a copy to edit, i can post the edited one and send the original in too? Just need to wait for a break in the clouds now as don't think overcast skies would look good in B&W

Yep, it did go well thanks, and I do have more than one stitch ;). That said, I really hope I can get out, as I have a cracking idea for an entry - just not up to much walking at the mo...

Having been away I hadn't seen this before I had my idea and entered my photo. I can't remember anyone else entering a Photo Mosaic before.
