    A huge welldone to twain155 for winning the April competition on the theme of "Over the Edge" and an equally huge welldone to every one of the 67 of you who participated :eek: :smashin:

    Well I guess you're wanting to know the theme he's chosen for this month so cue drum roll.........................


    SOFT


    Another one imo that is open to a lot of interpretation :thumbsup:

    As usual the thumbnail page will be available so you can keep track of who has posted what :)

    Please make sure you have familiarised yourself with THE RULES before posting :)

    I've as yet to confirm with [email protected] and Nick/[email protected] whether they will be sponsoring the comp this month but as usual there will be the 10x8 print of the winning shot courtesy of [​IMG] and of course the winner gets to choose next months theme ;)

    Competition closes Monday 28th May at approximately 7pm :)

    Oooooh - interesting choice of topic; quite looking forward to this one for a change :)

    I may even have to use my fallback option of using a badly-focussed shot: "It was shot soft deliberately, honest" :devil:

    :rotfl: I got the usual you're spending too much time on the PC again, I've given up saying it's only so that you can watch your soaps in peace darling, so she decides to come and see what I'm doing. Yes darling I'm on avforums again :smashin: at what point looking over my shoulder she says what type of a weirdo forum is this. eh I reply, then I read Gordons comment :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

    Spent the next 10mins trying to explain I want to enter this months comp and the topic is soft. Won't say what she suggested I should submit the :devil:

    :clap:

    Well, this topic is going to get a wide range of interpretations from everyone, might take a while to think of something good.

    Well done again to Twain155 :thumbsup:

    :thumbsup: Congratulations on winning April, Twain and nice theme choice too. I think Liquid has a good point though. It's going to be tough to come up with an original interpretation. More fun in May then..... :thumbsup:

    Maybe I'll have to invest in a macro lens for this one?

    Bubble502 - LOL! :D

    Glad people are liking the theme, hopefully it gives some scope for different approaches. Now i've just got to think of something myself!

    I saw this post last night, so I thought twain155 was saying that the new theme was "Can't handle the pressure!". I had a great idea, but I log in this morning to find that the actual theme is SOFT. Oh well.... :oops:

    Im not sure TBH .. maybe Zone will come along with an answer but given that the start time would have been when the thread for the new comp and theme was posted , probably not ( that was 10.00pm) . By 7.00pm yesterday you wouldn't have known what the new theme was
    However Im sure you will have an arsenal of potentials:D

    I don't know where twain155 is expecting us to get "soft" lenses and images from but

    with a lot of "Hard" men ( and maybe women) on here it promises to be interesting:)

    when i checked up last night i also saw the theme of "Cant handle the pressure" which tbh i thought was a bit naff :( , then ive logged on to see it as "Soft"....which i love as it does not lead you down a certain path automatically instead the cogs start to whizzz round in the old grey matter......so in short well done for a cracking theme :clap:

    Hopefully I'll get some time this month to come up with something. We are well into wedding season now which is keeping me busy :(

    Cracking entries last month so I'll have to think about this one.

    The more I think about this one, the more ideas I get. Cracking theme and some super shots so far. Lots of early entries as well which is excellent.
