### CTF mini Challenge 111 - THE HIGH PLACES ###
Jun 4, 2006

THE HIGH PLACES

I live in the beautiful Ribble valley in Northwest England surrounded by hills and fells with the mountains of the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District nearby. I just love these high places and am looking for great landscapes and images of hills and mountains and of views from them.

I will choose the photos I find most appealing in the subject and presentation.

The challenge will run for 11 days. Starting now Sunday June 4th and ending Monday June 14th at 17:00h (GMT).

THE RULES

The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going. You post your image(s). The host chooses the winner. The decision of the judge (the host) is final. The judge is not eligible. The winner then chooses the next topic, judges the winner, and passes on the baton to that person.
Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera.

You can do all the post processing you want. However, it is most helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo. Feel free to comment on other contestants' images. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, put an asterisk ( ) next to the title of the image.
Here are some guidelines:

When posting your picture, change the Subject of your post to display your name or picture titles. This way, when someone comments (i.e. replies), it will refer specifically to you. If all entries read "Re: Mini Challenge 111"... it would be very boring to scan the list.

Either embed your image in the thread or, if you must, supply a link to it. Keep in mind, however, most people don't want to click to open photos hosted elsewhere (i.e. on your website). Also try and resize your photos prior to posting so they're sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll ( 650 pixels on the longest side works best.)
And how do you embed a picture? I'm glad you asked:

1. While your photo on Flickr (or any other web site) is open, copy the URL address from the address box on your tool bar, then paste it into your reply thread. Add a .jpg extension to get the photo to show up. Click on preview to make sure it's what you want.
Or

2. Right click on the image in Flickr (or where ever you've hosted it), click on "Properties"..., highlight the link with the .jpg extension on it, and paste it into your message text. Provide any additional information you want.
As a show of courtesy, and to save bandwidth, please remove the original
post when replying, so you don't bring back any previous photos.

As usual, if you appreciate constructive criticism, put a star ( ) at the end of the subject line of your entry.
The challenge begins now and ends on the deadline prescribed above.

You may enter up to three pictures, but try to put them within a single post. Please give a title to each photo... this makes it easier to differentiate when giving comments.

Please size your photo no bigger than 650 pixels on the longest dimension. This is to let those with smaller monitors to see your image at full resolution.

Please limit the size of your entries to conserve bandwidth. 150K or less works well. Again, as a show of courtesy, and to save bandwidth, please remove the original post when replying, so you don't bring back any previous photos.
