    Thanks to Knightrider for hosting Challenge #63 with a very imaginative theme.


    So, on to Challenge #64 topic: [drumroll:] WHEELS

    Wheels are all around us. Round things generally, some are spinning to some purpose, some not. Car wheels, pin wheels, water wheels, wheels of cheese. They abound. For moving wheels there is the challenge of capturing movement in a still image. Others, for some reason, are static. Why? Let's see some imagination!


    The Basic Challenge Rules 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.

    The shooting starts now and ends 2359 GMT Sunday 7 June 2009. That gives us a little over two weeks and three weekends including a holiday weekend in the US.

    Let's see some wheels!

    Look at the bottom of the very first post on the Submission thread. You link to your submission photo there. It has to be hosted somewhere on the 'net where you can link to it.

    If you have further questions PM me and I'll try to help out.

  16. Duh.... I found it. Thanks everyone for the help.
     
  17. Very cool! You're way ahead of me.........I'm still trying to figure out a subject (never mind locate it..........). :rolleyes:  :smile:
     
  18. A reminder to all participants: images MUST be shot DURING THE TIME FRAME OF THE CHALLENGE. Any entry which has not been will be disqualified.
