**** Mini Challenge # 399 **** Family*****

This challenge is a logical extension of Peter and Sarah’s Challenge – Pictures of You. We have seen what everyone looks like. Now let’s see some pictures of those who are closest to you. Classic portraits will not score well here. The goal is to show us some pictures that tell us something about your family and how they interact. So the pictures should have two or more family members in them if possible. You can include yourself as one of those two members. There are no age limitations on who you choose to photograph. Your family members can be one hour or 100 years old.

Since the sentiment on WilbaW's thread was to try his new idea, we will give it a shot. Everyone will be allowed to post three separate pictures but only one picture per post. People can then “like” specific pictures. The decision will still be the winner’s (me) choice to make. I do not think we should lose that part of the forum. Although I do not always agree with the winners choices I like to see how my photos are judged by specific members of the forum

Have fun and good luck,

This challenge will close at 20:00 PDT, Tuesday March 27, 08:00 PM CST 1:00 AM March 28 GMT

Posting Guidelines

When the host provides everyone with the current topic, you may enter up to 3 pictures total, each in its own post. Please give a title to each photo, this makes it easier to differentiate when giving comments. Feel free to post photos for 'exhibition only' if you feel you are not able to host the next challenge, or simply do not wish to compete. In either case, add "Exhibition" or "Extra" or "Just for Fun" or "Off Contest" (or something similar) to your post. Also include these terms when posting any photos in addition to your original 3 entries.

Either embed your image in your post 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).

When posting a picture(s), change the Subject of your post to display your picture titles and/or your name. This way, when someone replies it will refer specifically to you. If all entries read "Re: *** Mini-Challenge xxx - ...***" it would be very boring to scan the list. Please size your photos no bigger than around 1600 pixels on the longest dimension. This is to let those with smaller monitors 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.

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

Regular Rules

Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of camera or time taken. You can do all the post processing you want. However, it is helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo (because we like to know). The host chooses the winner and the decision is final. No matter what you say, the host is likely not going to change their mind after the fact. Remember, it's all about fun and learning.

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.
