    I’m going to enter it but I’m undecided which picture to enter one is a football match picture which I’m going to call ‘Where I went Sunday when I left my home.’Or a holiday snap called ‘Where I sent a postcard home from.’ :laugh:

    Had similar take, using word in "home straight" for any racing event. Was going to take some action shots form recent Autograss event but rain stopped play. Always wanted to capture a head on shot from horse racing, but would need a decent zoom :(

    Come on guys, get your piccies in :thumbsup:

    Is the problem of people not being able to access it sorted? Mr Cat & Gordon could not view the comp. Where's that Steve Green characters entry as well.

    Maybe they are waiting till the last minute? The thing is if you leave it too long someone else will probably have used a simillar idea for their piccy. :lesson:

    yeah I reckon we will get a ramp in entries very soon.!!

    by the way, I know I mentioned it before, but did you two have a look over at usefilm.com ? Well worth a look. Click "photo critique" to browse through. Need to register a username and password to be able to see images larger. Some great stuff there (mix of digital and film despite the website title!)

    Looks cool too. I will take a look.

    I am totally in limbo with cameras right now ! I don't know what to do. I have been having some fun with an old manual-everything SLR, but do feel the hit everytime I pay development costs. Usually getting around 50% strike rate on ones I could bin! My digital is fairly old and has no scope for messing with any settings. I like the review of the compact zoom Fuji E-550 in this months Practical Photography. Dont think I can afford the 300D, and I like the review of Fuji s7000 but its fairly large and im not sure it gains much in quality.

    One day I will decide !

    I've not entered yet, as I can't think of an original idea for 'home' that isn't a pun.

    Might have to wait for next month...

    More puns the better :thumbsup: . It's just for fun......look fwd to seeing your shot ;)

    Ref # of entries, I recall someone stating they didn't realise there was an Oct comp in addition to Sept. Is there an easy way for Mods to PM Sept entrants to remind them of Oct Comp ? At least we know 43 people would know about it :D

    I've really been struggling with this one, but have just had an idea involving a can of gold spray paint (oooh matron)
