*** Mini-challenge 333 *** "Against the Odds" ***
9 months ago

I have been passed the baton (and given the honor and the duty) to host the next mini with the theme "Against the Odds".

RULES

1. Enter photos: Submissions to Win, and/or Exhibitions to Show.

2. Submissions to Win: up to 3 Shots.

3. Exhibitions to Show: are encouraged and unlimited: put the word Exhibition in the Header of your Post if you do not want to be chosen as the next host. Also: if you post more than 3 photos, label the additional ones as exhibition, the first 3 will be eligible to be chosen as winners.

4. Photos from any camera taken at any time. Also encouraged (not required): a title, a story, describe conditions, settings, post processing, etc. as may be interesting along with the photo.

5. Submitting photos: for clarity, it is best to reply to this original post, (rather than under someone else’s post), and to change the subject line of your post.

6. Comments on other people's photos add to the fun, the comments may be the best prize.

7. Host will select and announce the winners at the end date. 1st, 2nd, 3rd Place winners will be chosen, (as well as some honorable mentions if the host wants to).

8. 1st Place Winner Hosts the next Mini-Challenge. Pick a theme; start a new thread; give a description and some samples of what you have in mind; copy and paste (and tweak a little bit if you wish) these rules; change the end date.

9. 2nd Place Winner becomes the host if the 1st place winner requests that for any reason.

Now this is an international forum with most people from the USA I suppose but also from everywhere (like your humble narrator from Middle Europe), so I give the expiration date and time for a couple of time zones. The challenge is open for a narrow week and ends as follows:

Some examples - not that they are that stellar, but as examples for eligible ones fitting the theme in some sense or other.

And the last and most important rule: have fun!

A girl against the odds: a flock of goats. She succeeded to preclude their escape and to drive them to their intended place (into the stall).

A political demonstration

My son fighting against the gravitational odds in order to push up his bike on the steep slope - he succeeded.
