<<<< Challenge 231 - A rumour of Spring >>>>>>
Mar 20, 2014

It’s been quite a hard winter for lots of us this year. In the US there has been exceptional cold; in the UK there has been an incredible amount of rain, rain and even more rain leading to the worst floods for years and in Europe they’ve had just about everything. It’s been a winter of extremes for just about everyone.

But now, I hope, the weather is about to change and things are looking better – spring is in the air!!

Your challenge is go out and shoot what you think best represents the changing of the season. It could be spring flowers, the snow melting, the floods receding, the first workman in a T shirt, folk without coats, lovers holding hands!

Apologies to any of you south of the equator – you’ll have to go for rumours of winter

The challenge starts now and will last until March 31 at 21h GMT, when we will open the voting period.

Newcomers are totally welcome and encouraged to join the fun. Any 4/3 or m4/3 camera can enter the Competition gallery with an image captured during the challenge period, and any camera at all can enter the Exhibition gallery with an image taken any time. Just post here if you need assistance to get images into the gallery or if you are not certain what's going on. We all started off clueless and make the same mistakes.

To post a photo in any of the galleries, just select the gallery of choice from below: Competition or Exhibition or Originals. On the top of the page you will see "edit this gallery", click on that and it will ask for a password. Enter "kickass" (don't ask, just keep it lower case) and you should be able to make it from there to upload your image. If you still need assistance, ask and you shall be answered. Sometimes the answer is even the right one!

Add your name after the title, in the title. Please limit your image sizes to 800 pixels or less on the long side, and make sure the file size is no more than 200kB. Pbase lets us run these challenges free on their website, so please honor their generosity by keeping your file size reasonable. Ensure the EXIF data is intact for the competition, with the camera model and the date it was taken.

Most important of all: HAVE FUN!
