Hey folks,

First off we'd like to say thank you to Quik Pod for sponsoring the December Challenge. Please check out the website for more Quik Pod information, http:///www.quikpod.com/dslr.asp.

So here are 21 great photos. Take a look and vote for a favorite!

Midday

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 favorite. 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.

Some really nice photos this time round - certainly some to aspire to.

Now at the risk of being controversial, while the pictures are great, a selection seem to have no connection with the theme of the competition. Maybe its just me not appreciating the finer points of the submissions, but would it be an idea to have some text that goes with the picture? It could be limited to 10-20 words, so that you don't have pages of text but just enough to get an insight of what is behind the picture.

Titles are permitted. I've seen plenty of submissions where the title added to the photo, but in the end it wasn't included because people didn't follow the instructions. I personally think a title can provide a lot of insight into the photographers own interpretation.

Certainly with you on that one.

Congrats to David - absolutely stonking picture!

Cheers,

Thanks for the kind words everyone :blushing:. It was one of those lucky moments where everything just lined up nicely when I had my camera in hand.

Good luck to everyone with this month's challenge.
