Nikon Challenge #10
Apr 19, 2007

As the winner of Nikon Challenge #9, I am continuing the tradition of starting a new one. Taking up the suggestion of Home Rental Pro, I am announcing:

The Nikon Challenge #10’s theme as “Sunrise/Sunset”

The following rules are edited from the previous challenge (thank you WineO!).

R U L E S:

The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going. You post ONE image (only first image by one person will be judged) that is relevant to the challenger theme. The host chooses a winner after closing. The decision of the judge (the Host!) is final. The judge is not eligible. The winner then chooses the next topic, runs the challenge, judges the winner and passes on the baton to that person. If the winner fails to post a new challenge within 72 hours of being declared the winner then the runner-up should post the new challenge within a further 24 hours.

Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera it was taken with.

You can do all the post processing you want. However, it is most helpful if you list your camera, lens and exposure info along with your photo. Feel free to comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, put an asterisk (CC) next to the title of your image [e.g. Sunset with Canada Geese (CC)].

When posting your picture, reply to the main thread message (!) and change the subject of your post to display your picture title. This way, when someone comments (i.e. replies), it will read your photo's title. If all entries read "Re: Nikon Super Challenge #10"... it will be very boring to scan the list. Furthermore it will save the host a lot of time while judging entries.

Please embed your image in the thread. Try to resize your photos prior to posting so they're sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll ( 800 pixels on the longest side works best.)

Instructions for embedding a photo:

Basically putting http: your-hosting-site/ your-photo.jpg will show your photo here. This means you can:

1. While your photo on Pbase (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.


2. Right click on the image in Pbase (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 concerning your entry you want.

DEADLINE: April 30th, 12 midnight, pacific time (i.e. 3 am eastern time).
