Lastly have fun!



As always, the Basic Challenge Rule apply:

1. Every participant is allowed one picture per challenge.

2. The picture has to be taken between the submission start and end date.
This is to make it a "Challenge" and not just another "Best
Picture Contest"

3. The posted picture must remain unaltered, once posted.
But the text of the participation may be edited/changed, as often as
necessary (for possible exceptions contact the Challenge Leader)!

4. Pictures may be processed/edited and worked on, in post production
before submitting them, but the main picture/content must have been
taken during the submission dates.

5. Somewhat controversial pictures are permitted, but please use your
judgment and keep it within reason. ( Note that this community should
remain suitable for all age groups )

6. If there are any questions or obscurities the Challenge Leader is the
person to appeal and to decide.

7. The actual Challenge Leader has the freedom to alter the rules,
if reasonable (except Rule 5 perhaps). But he/she has to make sure the rules
are clearly stated and applied to all submissions.

8. Please try to keep the identity of the photographer/participant hidden
(as long as the challenge is running, and voting isn't finished)
So don't include the name or post the picture anywhere else on the cafe for the duration of the challenge! Don't use pictures, that have already been shown/posted in the cafe forums.

For more details on the Challenge please see this post.

Good luck, and have fun shooting.

It was a long, cold winter. First warm day, and I caught this gal running past me near the park.
