***Mini-Challenge #326 - Signs of Spring
Apr 30, 2012

Thanks Greg for a great job hosting the last challenge and picking Isabella as the winner, she's #1 in my books too...

This week I thought that I would keep it simple and encourage as many people to participate as possible so we can keep this thing going (IMHO, It's one of the best parts about this forum...). Thus this weeks challenge is SIGNS OF SPRING .

At this time of year there are a great number of opportunities for photographing subjects that are fun to many of us...The birds are returning, flowers are blooming, kids running around outside, beautiful landscapes, etc... So lets see all of your spring photos! (for those of you in the southern hemisphere, this means you've had a 6 month head start on the PP... ). Good luck to all!

This challenge will close at 6:00pm Eastern Daylight Time (GMT -5:00) on Monday May 7th.

Standard Rules

The host gives you a topic of interest. You post a maximum of three images. 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 (because we like to know).

Feel free to comment on other contestant’s images. If you want people to give you constructive criticism, ask for C&C.

The host chooses the winner. The host's decision is final. The host is not eligible.

The winner then hosts the next challenge, judges the winner, and passes on the baton to that person. The winner has 48 hours to post the new challenge. If that doesn't happen 2nd place has 24 hours to do so, and if that doesn't happen it's up to the 3rd place winner.
Posting Guidelines

When posting your picture, change the Subject of your post to display your picture titles and/or your name. This way, when someone comments (i.e. replies), it will refer specifically to you. If all entries read "Re: * Mini-Challenge xxx * …" 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).

You may enter up to 3 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 around 1200 pixels on the longest dimension. This is to let those with smaller monitors to see your image at full resolution. Please limit the file size of your entries to conserve bandwidth.

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.
