the theme for March is........
wait for it, wait for it!
You swine !!! Got all interested there when I saw the thread name !!
I wonder if mjw has a theme lined up ready to announce super-quick !?
Well done to MJW, great shot and turned the tables on Zone who thought he had it in the early stages.
Never mind Si, there is always the March comp
Well done again to MJW
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..............
Ah, this months subject bodes well as I am off to Daytona Beach for 10 days this month and it's always sunny there. woohoo!!!
Yes I had it in the bag after the first hour
Well done MJW, I like the March theme as well
Well done matey. Sun!!!! In Manchester!!!
True Seany, so true...
Well done on the win MJW, a worthy winner...
I thought it was the compulsory tabloid there
But "SUN" we're in Scotland mate give us a chance eh
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?
If you go to the top menu there is USEFUL RESOURCES. then go to ARTICLES and then PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION.
there is info on there about image sizes and stuff.
bah im screwed, we dont see sun in preston at all
Hmm - may have to dig out an old shot for this one...
although i actually have a really really good idea for this if i can pull it off
I'm lost with it at the moment, i do have a few that would be quite good for it, but they are old ones. I want to try and get a new one if i can
Well done mjw a worthy winner.
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
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
I saw that too - lovely wasn't it. I was also travelling home via the M1, may well have seen you.
Also, well done to MJW, excellent photo, well deserved victory..
If you read less of the sun you might now
You may well have seen me mate, and if you were the one I cut up I'm very sorry, really have to get my wipers changed twas a knightmare
So you were the one...
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
100% in agreement with that
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...
