OUR UN-OFFICIAL GENERAL RULES
1. Have fun sharing and seeing what others share!
2. The host supplies a topic and YOU POST 1-3 IMAGES. The host judges the winners (1st, 2nd and 3rd) and is not eligible to enter. The 1st place winner becomes the next host, chooses the next topic and becomes the next judge.
3. Any photo you’ve taken is eligible, regardless of when taken or camera used.
4. Any amount of post-processing is allowed. However, it is helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo.
5. You may comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you some critique or criticism, just ask within your post.
6. The winner has up to three days (72 hours) to begin a new mini-challenge, or the honor goes to the #2 finisher and so forth.

Guidelines:
1. Enter 1-3 photos and put them in a single post.
2. Either embed your image in the thread or, if you must, supply a link to it. Keep in mind, however, most people don't want to click to open photos hosted elsewhere (i.e. on your website).
3. Also try and re-size your photos prior to posting so they're sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll (~800 pixels on the longest side works best.)
4. Give each image you enter a title.
5. Enjoy discussion with members about their images, don't let this just be an entry thread!
6. When quoting a post, change the IMG urls to a 200x200 size picture so it is clear your post is feedback and not another entry. (See here for help).
7. Don't be hesitant; share 'em and enter!

Mini-Challenge pointers:
1. Upon winning a mini-challenge round, your first step is coming up with a new theme and starting a new thread using the same format as others have used.
2. Make sure to notify the admin of this thread to update the main thread links with your entry thread.
3. Feel free to watch the thread as it grows or wait to the end time and look at all the entries all at once.
4. After the time/date has passed, then officially close the thread with a single post notifying everyone of the fact.
5. After you're finished judging, start a new thread (again using the prior formats) and post your Winner and runners-up. It is important to have runners up in case the winner does not show within the 72-hour window.
6. PM the winner with this info above and let them know they have 72 hours to set up the next mini-challenge.
7. If the winner does not show/start the next mini-challenge after 72 hours, notify the next runner-up and post a message on the Winner thread of the fact.
8. Remember, if you're the Winner, you run the next mini challenge!

    This will be a hard one. We don't drink coffee. (not from any religious reason)

    How many things can you find wrong in this photo

    1. Coffee and Banana plantations in Costa Rica as painted by an Italian who has never been to Costa Rica

    This is a ceiling mural in the opera house in San Jose. There are at least two significant errors - at least one for coffee. The banana errors are that bananas would never be carried that way (a hand of bananas is way to heavy for that). It is slung over the shoulder. And the bananas are painted upside down. Bananas grow up the stalk the opposite way that someone would do shingles.

    2. Coffee growing in Hawaii

    3. Coffee House in Seattle

    I was tempted to use a photo of my daughter riding Cafe au Lait (her pony who was a chestnut with a flaxen mane and tail) but I thought that might be a little TOO far out. Plus the only good photo I have of them is black and white so it wouldn't show his color

    I just remembered taking this photo in Stockholm in mid-April, partly because everyone was sitting outside, welcoming the sunshine while sipping coffee - warmly dressed. Found a couple more that may fit this fun theme.

    1. Hello Sunshine (springtime in Sweden)

    2. Cafe Cups (Homer, Alaska)

    3. Coffee and Watercolors (Brussels, Belgium)

    I have sent a message to Don to see what the hold up is. I'm hoping that all is well with him and his family. Thank you all for your patience.
