    Welcome,

    Hmmm... Quite a lot fewer photos submitted this month, with only 5 entered - where were the rest of you?. Take a look at them anyway and vote for your favourite!

    Bat & Ball

    You may notice that in the gallery some files appear larger then 150KB, but every photo included was less then 150KB when uploaded to the gallery.

    To ensure that voting remains fair only active participating members of the forum may cast a vote. New members may not be able to vote right away in a challenge due to restrictions that have been put in place. If you cannot vote, but believe that you should be able to, feel free to send a pm to myself or another TPF staff member.

    Please keep in mind that we are trying to keep this challenge anonymous (and unbiased) when it comes to both the submitting and the voting. Please avoid sharing your opinions about any specific photos until after the voting has completed and the winner is announced.

    Please read the titles carefully in order to avoid confusion before voting. The photos may not be sorted in the correct order so to ensure you view them in proper order scroll to the bottom of the page and where it says "Display Options" ensure you select Sorted By: "Image Name" Sort Order: "Ascending" and then click on the "Show Images" button.

    After viewing the photos please take the opportunity to vote for your favourite. Good luck to all. If there are any questions please let us know.

    The mods/admins of ThePhotoForum.com may decide the winner from the top five submitted photos. The winner of the photo challenge will be contacted by Private Message (PM) on the day that the winner is announced. If the winner does not respond to the PM within 30 days they will not receive their prize and it will be put towards a future challenge. If we are unable to ship the intended prize to the winner do to his/her location we will provide another prize of equal value.

    The polls will be open for the next seven days.

    Yeah well, sorry about that. But I wouldn't know where to shoot a baseball scene around here. Noone plays baseball here. I seriously thought about bringing a soccerball to the local zoo's batcave for a moment but that wouldn't have made any sense for a photograph.

    I promise I will join the challenge this month :D

    I'm not quite sure why people seem to believe this was a baseball theme. There are any number of sports or games where some form of stick, club or bat is used to hit a ball (or even shuttlecock).

    Once again, it's a big thanks to everyone who took part. I look forward to seeing what's coming up for this months competition theme "In the Garden" (actually I've already seen a few - I think we may have more than 5 entries too).

    I'll go drop a few notes round on the subject of prizes then.
