    Hi everyone,

    This month things are going to be a little different so let me explain what "Favorite Album" means. What we're looking for is a photo that fits with the title of one of your favorite albums.

    Please note that when submitting a photo this month we require the title of the album and if you wish the name of the band or artist. When submitting a photo just rename it so it clearly indicates the album title (ie In_Through_the_Out_Door.jpg).

    We'd also like to say thanks again for our sponsor Quik Pod. The Quik Pod DSLR is the world's first monopod with a grip handle at the base. It is lightweight (9 ounces), has a quick release camera clip and a built-in wide angle mirror for viewing overhead shots or self-portraits. The handle at the base doubles as an extendable handheld grip for cameras, camcorders or lighting holder and provides a low center of gravity foot for support when used as a monopod.

    Comes with a carry bag, hiking clip, wrist strap, aluminum end cap and rubberized monopod adapter tip. Extends to 53" and contracts to 18". Recommended camera weight limit of 2 lbs.

    .......................................................................................................

    Please email your photo to photochallenge@thephotoforum.com and remember to enter the subject as indicated.

    All photos must include the form when submitted. Just copy and paste it into your email. This will ensure that no mistakes are made when photos are submitted and therefore, hopefully, no photos are excluded.

    There is more important information regarding rules and procedures located in the FAQ section. We highly recommend that you take the time to read these FAQs.
    Good luck to everyone and have fun with this challenge!

    *150KB will be taken as the “size on disk” and not the actual file size. Also some email programs consider 1KB=1000Bytes as oppposed to 1KB=1024Bytes. When these programs calculate attachment size they will often read larger then they actually are. To be safe we recommend a target size of about 140KB so that once sent it does not go over 150KB.

    Hmm. So one might shoot a "Beggar's Banquet" (Mia?)or an "Appetite for Destruction" or some "Bitches Brew." This is going to be cool. I gotta go listen to Pink Floyd or something...

    What if your favorite album never hit the mass market, but underground was one of the best ever....in someones' opinion? Should we also provide the original album cover as a point of reference?

    I don't think the original cover matters... It's the title of the album that your picture should be influenced by...
