Challenge 66 - WATER

Aug 1, 2006
Water is all around us, and even, within us. It comes in so many forms, each of which has it's own beauty. Thick fog which hides things within, gentle mists that soften landscapes, driving rain depicting power and sometimes even anger. Lakes, oceans, rivers, streams, mountain springs trickling forth from a rock. Steam, liquid, or blocks of carved ice. Still and reflective, churning with energy, rushing over dams or rocks. So many places to be found, ways to be depicted.

Water. Find it. Shoot it. Show us!! :smile: :biggrin:

PLEASE NOTE: All times re: ending for submission and voting are GMT.

The challenge starts with the posting of this thread on Thursday, July 2nd, and will end at 23:59hrs GMT on Sunday, July 19th.

Voting will be open from 0000 July 20th (GMT) until 23:59 Monday, July 27th (GMT).

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:
