With the weather turning colder for some of the participants here,
I'll continue with a Mini-Challenge that can be an inside-the-house
project. New photos are encouraged but not required.

Deadline is December 1, 2014 at 12:00 noon CST.

The objective is to photograph parts of things that are no longer
in the form of a whole, or an array of individual pieces that form
a composition. Here are a few examples:

#1 - Parts

#2 - Pieces

#3 - Pieces in an array

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 resize 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!

    I had hoped to see more entries, too, but wasn't in a position to contribute any images myself - new or old. We have been in South Africa for several weeks and my priorities last week were food shopping, laundry, and visiting with family over Thanksgiving. Still playing catch up but look forward to seeing the theme for the next mini!

    Most likely Thanksgiving and shopping frenzy has the better of people? I thought it was a pretty good challenge!

    I think the time line is too short. I didn't see it until today because I was looking for something at the end of the last one that said the results were available. Plus I thought that one ended Nov 28th

    It's disappointing that there are so few entries in this Challenge,
    but there have been a lot of distractions considering the holidays.

    If it's all right with Jag, can we extend the deadline until Monday,
    December 8th? Noon?

    Yup, ok with me. December has always been a tough month for participation. Whoever wins this round should have their challenge go through the new year till the first week of January.

    Since I am currently in St. Croix, I don't really have the ability to set things up, but here are some boat parts - some of them aren't very pretty as photos as they were taken with a point and shoot film camera back in the late 1990s
