PLEASE NOTE, IF ANYONE IS UNSURE HOW TO PRESERVE EXIF AND FOR ANYONE USING SOFTWARE THAT STRIPS EXIF THEN AS LONG AS THE ORIGINAL PICTURE CAN BE EMAILED TO [email protected] THEN THE PICTURE WILL BE ALLOWED.
What if you want to enter but do know/understand about all the technical things like this and just like to take pictures, Is it OK to enter?

you dont need to understand it you just need to know it.

if you upload to flickr you can see all the details you need to know by clicking "more properties" on your photo, just copy and paste them into your thread.

then just email the original to [email protected] and you're done
:thumbsup:

Anyone got any thoughts on whether we're actually restricted by the use of "fork" (singular) in the title ?

Firstly thanks to all that voted and for the amazing comments, it's a very humbling experience and it's made my month!

More importantly thanks for getting behind this months theme, I feel I should back it up with some sort of reasoning.

Well it started when I went to see a photo exhibition by Rankin, one of the groups of pictures was about a non-descript mundane brown dress that 40 different women could choose how to wear rather than be dictated to by the photographer, so I thought it would be fascinating to see a group of peoples interpretation of an everyday mundane object and you can't get much more mundane than a plastic fork!

So far my favourite idea has been the Eiffel tower obscured by a plastic fork! (Maybe with a bit of roast beef / black pudding on the end of it?!)

Good luck!
