<<<< Mini-Challenge >>>> #320: Flying Part 2
8 months ago

After only two days, the original thread has almost reached the DP Review limit of 150 posts, so I am starting Part 2. For Part 1, see:

This challenge is Flying. It could be birds, of or from planes, insects, hot-air balloons, a tennis ball or a speeding car. Or anything else that, in the broadest sense, is flying, or looks like it might. We've already had flying flags, children and dogs, as well as planes (both flying and crashed!), birds, insects, balloons, para-gliders, space rockets and more.

Rather than just show off images, please also tell us about the stories behind the images. Why and where were they taken, what’s happening, what event is underway? Anything you like that adds human interest to what might otherwise be just another photo. The picture is there to tell its own story, or to illustrate a real-world event. The idea is to give as much latitude as possible for your own creative ideas within the broad constraints of this topic.

Contest entries are limited to three photos but please feel free to post unlimited numbers of photos noted as 'Exhibition'. The more photos the better. (Extra points are given for actively responding to others photos and participating in the discussions here, just to add to the fun and possible learning-from-each other experience here.)

The Winner Sets up a NEW Mini-Challenge!!!

(Second place takes the baton if the Winner could or would not host the next one)

Enter Exhibition in header if you don't want to be voted on or chosen as the Winner, or if you've already reached your maximum number of entries!

Rules (general rules from past competitions):

1) Enter up to three photos from any camera taken at any time. Let us know about equipment, settings and processing if you like. A good title and a little context about what was happening when the image was captured. We’re interested in the story behind the picture, not just the image.

2) 3rd, 2nd, and Winners will be chosen. The winner chooses the next mini challenge theme and selects the next winner and so on. . .

3) Please post your entries by replying to this original post rather than under someone else’s post - and change the subject line to the title(s) of your images or something like that to separate your picture posts from comments that someone may make about your post.

4) As usual, exhibition entries are welcome, if you have interesting images to share beyond your three entries, or should you feel you are not able to host the challenge in the event that you win. Please be sure to clearly state if entries are exhibition only.

5) All entrants should check the results of the challenge and be ready to jump in with the next competition if they are the winner.

6) PLEASE feel free to make as many comments as possible. This adds to the fun and keeps people coming back. Lets make this a record number of entries.

7) The contest starts now and ends on Monday, December 9 at 1000 UTC (ie, 2am Pacific time)

8) The Winner Sets up a NEW Mini-Challenge!
