    Guys - I'm extremely honoured to have won this months competition, there were some excellent entries so to get nearly a third of the vote is totally overwhelming. A big thank you to all the members who voted for my picture.

    I think I got lucky with the subject I chose especially bearing in mind the photographic abilities of some of you guys on the forum !!

    The irony of it all is I've just swapped the camera I used for the picture (Oly 765) for a Panasonic FZ3 !!

    Anyway enough wallowing from me and let me put you out of your misery by announcing the subject for March which is..............



    'SUN'

    How does one enter the competition? Where do we upload images, is there a size or format restriction or any other rules that must be followed?

    I was brought up behind the Daily express buildings where the sun was printed, that's about the closest i've been to the sun.

    Actually i was walking through town today and the sun was reflected in the Urbis building but i never had my camera with me

    I hope you know you might have to leave the house for this comp MJ:laugh:

    Wish I'd had my camera with me today as there was a superb sunset this evening as I was travelling home from work via the M1, for the best though as unfortunately I was also driving into one of the heaviest hail storms I have ever seen:eek:

    Looks like this months theme may throw up an interesting dilemma. Normally photos not taken specifically for the competition don't get 'approved' by quite a few members on here, and as there won't be much 'sun' in the UK at this time of the year members may well be using archived photos, as we have seen already. Me, I don't care if it is an archived shot or one taken especially for the comp, a good photo is a good photo is a good photo.
    I know it is early days yet, jeez 2 days into the March theme, but it will be interesting to see what people will achieve this month.

    Winter suns can often be far more beautiful then those of the summer. Only yesterday the sun was brilliantly refelcted in the glass of the urbis in Manchester city centre. Would hav made a fine shot.

    Archived photo has yet to win. A great shot is a great shot, but this comp is about a bit of a challange set to us. This one's a tough one for sure, makes it better in my book though

    Err, isn't it dangerous to point a camera at the sun, or even look directly at the sun for any length of time?

    I'm sure we'll be fine with digital cameras, if we look at the LCD display, but perhaps we need a health and safety warning...my left eye is still smoldering slightly, after I tried to take a picture of the sun through an old pair of binoculars...

    Actually over-exposure to sunlight can actually be damaging to your sensor...
