4. Nikon 1 Weekly CHALLENGE: ACTION!
Aug 12, 2013

I hate bureaucracy, rules and I hate waiting, that's why I'm starting a fast paced, easy to understand WEEKLY photo challenge for N1 users. Every other week there will be a new competition, with a new subject matter. Competitions will end and new ones will begin on Monday.

Rules are simple:

1) Photos must be taken with a Nikon 1 camera

2) You can submit only 3 photos per week

3) Give thumbs up to the photos you like, by using the thumbs up feature. The photo with the most thumbs ups wins!!!

4) There is nothing to be won, except for GLORY and reputation for being a serious Nikon 1 BADASS!!!

5) ...???

Ready, steady, go! Show me your best ACTION photographs!

Maybe rule 5 should read "Only one photo per post."  Two or more photos per post is confusing.

I was thinking about it, but I'll wait and see what others say. Anyway it's too late now, because I can't edit my post any longer.

IVN, thanks for putting this together. Very nice to get away from the 1 series threads about the future of the camera.

Another photo from Hot August Nights in Reno. The rain came down hard for about an hour and then let up. I thought the panning car shots in the rain made for some fun shots.
