Challenge #65 -- Three -- DEADLINE EXTENDED! :)

Discussion in 'Challenge and Contests Forum' started by BostonRott, Jun 13, 2009.

  1. A most sincere thank you to Bcoons for hosting Challenge #64: Wheels! Rollin' right along to #65...............

    Use composition, or subject, to illustrate "three." Use your imagination!!! Three is all around us! :smile: In it's simplest form, its a cardinal number. In more abstract thinking, it's the rule of thirds, use of 3 colors, repetition of an object three times, a set of triplets, 3 stages of life, use of 3 compositional elements or theories, etc.

    You choose how to represent this powerful number! :smile:

    The challenge starts with the posting of this thread on Sunday, June 14 (GMT), and will end at 23:59hrs GMT on Sunday, June 28th.
    Hopefully, we can finish this one, vote quickly, and be on to #66 before the July 4th holiday weekend. :biggrin:

    Voting will be open from 0000 June 29th (GMT) until 23:59 Thursday, July 2nd (GMT).

    To check GMT, click here.

    Best wishes to you all, I look forward to seeing your creativity!!!


    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 where already shown/posted in the cafe before.

    9. Please feel free to give your picture a title, and even explain it a little!

    10. You must host the photo somewhere on the web. The photo is then entered via the "posting 'bot", using the URL where you have the photo hosted.

    the Voting Thread: in which the votes will be posted, best
    started when the submission time has ended. Again, only votes are allowed
    here. This Thread is posted by the Challenge Leader again.

    1. While voting, everyone is allowed 3 Votes:
    first place (counting 3 points),
    second place (counting 2 points) and
    third place (counting 1 point).
    Each entry can be voted for once! (either 1st, 2nd or 3rd),
    that is, each vote must be for a different entry, but no more than 3 entries can be voted for (the points can't be split across multiple entries).
    You may also say why you voted for the pictures you did.

    2. It is not necessary to have participated in the challenge,
    to give a vote. But if you did participate, don't vote for your own entry :rolleyes:

  5. Hey y'all, only 4 days left on this Challenge ..... don't forget to get out and shoot this weekend! :smile:
  6. We're up to THREE entries about THREE. :biggrin:

    Beautiful shots so far, let's keep it going! :smile:
  7. Where are the entries?

  8. We had 4 entries so far. I had to create a new Submission thread when I extended teh deadline. The old thread would not allow me to simply extend the entry time. In doing so, we lost the entry log. :frown: Hopefully, the entrants will see the Post about this and re-enter.

    I'm sorry for making such a mess!! :redface:
  9. Gretchen...
    those things happen...
    I am sure they will repost, and hopefully many more!
  10. Thank you to those re-submitting!! :biggrin:

    And the 3 dear.....VERY cool, quite the capture! :smile:
