    Amazing turn out so a big well done one and all.
    Disappointing end to the voting though as the higher scoring member forgot to vote so unfortunately all his votes were disallowed so he handed the win to his closest rival.

    Well done Jon_C for winning February's competition on the theme of Reflection with this picture here :thumbsup:

    For March he has chosen the theme STREET PHOTOGRAPHY

    To jim; a picture of a road is eligible ;)
    As always [​IMG]

    Lol, thanks for giving Jim his special instructions ;) <3
    Aye, this will be difficult for some, easy for some and completely alien for some. Interesting, though. I might give it a go tomorrow if I manage to drag my cold-suffering lot somewhere out of the house! Great excitement last month, great entries, lets hope this will be as good :)

    I definitely fall into the "alien for some" category :eek: Been wanting to give it a go for a while though, so I best get those 'brave pills' ordered.

    Great theme! I'm absolutely terrified! One of my early experiences of street photography as a student was getting a right earful off a street corner florist I took a photo of, it kinda put me off taking photos like that.
    Time to get back on that horse!

    You did get some fantastic practise done there! Now go and do it all over again ;) I was actually anticipating this theme, if Jon wins. Well, he did and he made it a theme, hehe :)

    This is my fear :confused: Plus feeling like a muppet. You don't see anyone with DSLR's in my town, so I'd be very out of place and conspicuous :eek:

    Hey Zone, my competition entry has vanished from my thread and I can't find it in the media section any more.

    I also do not have a back up on flickr.

    Hi guys,

    I know this is a big ask but is there any chance of putting the close of comp off til Saturday as I'm away and might struggle to get an entry by Friday as don't land til Friday afternoon?
    If this is no go what about 9-10pm Friday instead of 6pm?

    No worries if not, but I'd like to get an entry in if I can. I might not get t'internet again til Friday, but will check back if I do.

    Cheers, Toby

    I'm 6000 miles away stuck in Hong Kong, if I can get an entry in ontime with the limited internet capabilities at my disposal, so can you! :p:p

    Seriously, no objections from me. :thumbsup:

    Thanks guys. Hopefully it'll not put Zone out too much?
    No computer so no way to get files off the camera. iPad card reader broke on day one, but RAW anyway so can't upload to flickr even if it worked :facepalm:

    Looks like the albums that were set up for the comp have been deleted Dan; there won't be a way to get them back, can you not simply upload a copy to your flickr as usual?

    I know I shouldn't but "PMSL" :devil:

    If you get really stuck can't you stick a RAW onto dropbox or something and email me the link and I can jpeg it for you and either email it back or create a thread for you ?


    See first line of above response :devil: :devil:

    Thanks so much, really appreciated. I'll try and get something up by Friday night though if we don't get a delay, but at least I know I don't need to stress now ;)

    Thanks again :thumbsup:

    Thanks, but uploading on this wifi seems a no go. Besides the photo I want is still on the SD card and can't get it on't iPad. Stupid cheap Amazon card reader ;)

    No worries though, Zone to the rescue :)

    Struggled with this theme as it's just "DEFINITELY not my thing" - so in a sense it was good :) - now I'm struggling to pick a shot :(

    LOL - yes I know - and it's definitely a "front runner" - especially as it pays lip service to Zone ;)
