Chairman’s Challenge CHANGES!!!

With the new web site upgrade we are using the "LIKE" system for voting

Please read the instructions:
1. Member that wish to enter the Challenge will now upload their own entry here in this post.
2. Once the Challenge is over I will make an announcement that it is time to “LIKE” one two or three images of your choice.
3. Please do not “LIKE” any entries before the Challenge is closed. I will announce the time to like.
With this new system you will no longer have to email me your entries (unless we do an anonymous challenge)


This Chairman's Challenge suggestion is from Elsa Hoffmann is the Winner of the The Breakfast Challenge. The new Challenge is "MIRRORS...."

"MIRRORS...."

Challenge:
Mirror/s - in any shape and form - interpret how you like.
Images from Archives are good, but as mirror images are everywhere - try catch a fresh one.
eg - guys - you shave every morning - IN A MIRROR :) THAT'S SOOOO easy to get to -
But please try and include your EXIF in the pic.


Any image, that can illustrate the concept. The envisioning of the concept is entirely up to the photographer.

This Challenge will end Sunday August 19th, 2012 at 16:00h GMT

Guidelines for submissions

- one image per person - can be from your archives
- images should fit on 1000 pixel wide screen without scrolling (suggested maximum 800 w x 600 high - 350 k)
- run-off in the event of ties in the voting.

Here is some info about Elsa Hoffmann and the winning photo:

I am a photographer from Cape Town South Africa, I particularly like people photography - but equally enjoy the challenge of doing something new. It is hard to come up with new challenges for yourself on a consistent basis.

About the Winning image:

The image captured
I sat early every morning waiting for the arrival of the babies, and then again to capture them. Mostly, the only time the light allowed me to shoot was sunrise. There are three babies in this shot. Baby grebes cant swim when they hatch. they have to learn. Therefor the parents feed them.

I was fascinating to watch and shoot these birds, and I sat for hours, always hoping for a better shot. After about 900 shots over a couple of days - I decided to walk away and work with what I have. It wasnt easy. Used the 200-400 and I think the 1.4 TC. I wish I had a 600 for this.
