*** Mini-Challenge #371 ~ Holiday Season ***
Dec 21, 2012

Since this Mini Challenge will run through the Christmas holidays it is only fitting to display images that showcase the mood and character of the Holiday Season. This time of year is a celebration of beliefs so it should include the holidays of Hanukkah and Kwanzaa as well.

Submit entries that represent your wonderful moments, activities, or things that remind you of this wonderful time of the year.

You may use any post processing you like to enhance your pictures.

If you're familiar with extracting exif-data, let us know camera model, shutter-speeds, f-stops and ISO-numbers: others may be able learn from that!

The challenge begins now, and will end on Thursday, December 27th at 8PM CDT

THE RULES

The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going.

You may enter up to three competition images.

The host chooses the winner after the challenge closes (usually after one week). 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 you submit a photo, please check in when the winners are posted. The first place winner is expected to host the next challenge. If the first place person cannot host, it moves to the 2nd place, etc.

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

Please reply to the FIRST (ORIGINAL) post if you are submitting an entry and please remember to 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 #322"... it would be very boring to scan the list.

Please put your entries within a single post.

Please give a title to each photo - this makes it easier to differentiate when giving comments.

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.

POSTING GUIDELINES

Please embed your image in the thread. 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.

Main rule and general guideline: Have fun!
