I have an idea for this but don't think I'll be able to try it until the 13th.
Hopefully this challenge will do better than the last

Whittie, the photo has to have been taken since the challenge was set, can't just raid your flikr for something that fits the criteria

Mine is taken, just needs to be post processed and i'm done, fingers crossed will get round to it tonight

Exactly though andy. So if Matt chooses the next winner, which will probably be pretty obvious, then that person chooses topic and winner.

The main reason Matt and I started doing this was to force each other to pick up our cameras.

Matt just emailed me

quote:
The problem with a poll is it takes time where as the person who set the challenege picks a winner straight away and can get the next challenge going,
I may add in that you cant vote for your own photo as that would be very pointless and you would have to be quite sad to vote for your own, but this is how it is worked on talkphotography and it works very well so i dont see the point in making a poll, plus polls cause too many arguements imo.
So I still stand by the person who set the challenege selects a winner just to keep things going quickly and challeneges being set regularly.
As mike said this is only for fun really and mainly here so people get out use their camera's so does it really matter who wins?

Fireworks would of been my choice, but the weathers been shit and I still haven't got a tripod, so got one other idea that I'm gonna try and get sorted, but will probably wait for the next topic now.

Ok, had a walk around the park today looking for some inspiriation, there wasn't anything in blue really!

So...



And before editing...



I think that's the best i'm getting for this week
