ok lets give this a shot

RULES
only one photo to be taken on any subject by any member in any part of the world, the photo must be taken by that member and must be taken before midnight of the wednesday before the ending date, we can work on the rules and judging as this thing goes along, after the week is up me or curly will set up the next weeks post and the week that has just finished will be moved into a new room so the posts are not lost in the mists of time or get mixed up with the new weeks post

so to get the ball rolling here is my horse photo taken tonight and if i do not win i will be banning a few people at random :lol:

:D Sounds like fun. I have a question....can the photo to be submitted, if taken, say last year or so, still be able to qualify for the comp?
Or does it have to be taken like, in this immediate time span?

party girl dont worry if like me you just use a compact then the details dont matter, but a bit info on where the photo was taken would be helpful, as for the photo sizes do you know how to resize your pics ? if not we could make a post on how to do this

Well, that's me out. I am not sure I understood 75% of that stuff about fixed px. :lol:
You'll miss my shots, mind you-that little 2 mp camera of mine is the stuff of legends. :lol: :wink:

Jimmy, brilliant horse pic. Pretty steep slope around there by the look of things.

She's cute Danet. I'll be brave too, giant toadstools growing in my next door neighbours yard. Taken with my little point and shoot with no special setting as the Iceman took it and he even has to ask which button to push

Thank you Anna. Those toadstools were absolute monsters, I think I'll have to brave it and climb the fence to take a couple more.
