****** Challenge #146 ******
MANY Thanks to Brev00 for the idea for this theme. Let's go with the flow of my challenge #145 submission and make the theme "Feeling blue" . For this challenge submit images where blue is either the dominant (> 50%) color or the primary color of the subject and draws your attention.
This challenge will end Saturday, June 16, 2012 @ 2400 CDT .
VERY IMPORTANT! please reply to the FIRST (ORIGINAL) post and please RENAME THE SUBJECT TO INDICATE THE TITLE OF YOUR PHOTO ENTRY.
The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going. You will submit your best work. Post ONE image (if you post more than one image, the first will be your entry in the challenge).
The host chooses a winner after closing. 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 the winner fails to post a new challenge within 72 hours of being declared the winner then the runner-up should post the new challenge within a further 24 hours.
Images created with any camera at any time are eligible.
Feel free to comment on other contestant's images. if you want someone to leave you some constructive criticism, put (CC) next to the title of your image.
Please embed your image in the thread. Try to resize your photos prior to posting so they're sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll (800 to 1000 pixels on the longest side is best.)
Be creative but remember image quality, composition and human interest are important.
Good luck, and thank you for entering.
Some samples from my files to kick start the creative juices:
