    Well done one and all who entered and a close run three way battle it turned out to be!
    Congratulations to SprockRocket for his 148 to Victoria (Long Exposure)

    For October he has chosen the theme

    Shoot a Stranger :eek:

    However, his idea is we don't all go out and commit mass murder but
    to try put a lot of us outside our comfort zones!

    The rule is to try take a candid picture of a stranger, someone we don't know!

    We will have to trust peoples honesty as to whether they do know the person but I have a feeling folks will be up for the challenge!


    As always [​IMG]




    will once again be supplying a 10x8" print of the winning shot :)


    And
    Gordon @ [​IMG]




    who is once again offering his services for a free ISF calibration, terms and conditions apply, see below :thumbsup:


    Closing date is Thursday 28thth Oct at 7pm or thereabouts.


    Terms and conditions for ISF Calibration prize:
    Prize: 1 x ISF calibration
    Only available on mainland uk
    Calibration will be done when Convergent are already in your area
    There is no cash alternative
    If winner is out with mainland UK then if travel costs are covered we will honour the prize

    Thanks again guys.
    Jim and rjay, that's exactly how I feel about candids, so like zone said it was supposed to take us out of our comfort zones and force us to think differently, it was inspired by a recent thread on the general photo forum. So as zone said only rule is you mustn't already know the subject. Good luck everybody (I know I'll need it)....

    Well done everyone:clap: Some great entry's and interpretations. My vote goes to Jim this month for inspiring the thread and discussion "Candids and social commentary", seems to have died out now, but was IMO a very interesting thread due to Jim's comp entry this month.
    Goes to show It's not always about the quality of the image.
