Greetings Mini-Challengers… my theme for #200 (a nice round number!) is – Architecture.
Please feel free to post images of human constructions large and small… buildings, bridges, towers, monuments, or ????
This could include all or portions – details and adornments – day or night – straightforward or abstract… please surprise me with something unexpected, unusual, or exotic.
I'd like architectural elements to be prominent in the images, but as always, I’m pretty flexible and I will enjoy seeing all your individual interpretations. TIA for playing, and have fun!
Eric


This challenge will run for 2 weeks - from today until Tuesday, February 3 @ 9:00pm PST-USA.



############################################################################
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 decided when I first read this challenge that I should enter this photo of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct in Wales. It was very hard to get a good angle on this. This was the best I could do

    07241452.jpg

    Then I thought I should have at least one lighthouse as that is one of my favorite things to take photos of. So this is the New Cape Henry Lighthouse

    I couldn't think of what to have as a third entry. So as perhaps a placeholder - this was one of the photos on my first roll of film, taken in the winter of 1958-1959 with the camera my father gave me for my 20th birthday
