CTF Mini Challenge # 82 - Newborns

CTF Mini Challenge # 82 - Newborns

Hello there, I am Wesley and looks like I get the honor of getting the next challenge going. Since I am still here in yellowstone and on the search for some animals to photograph, the idea of Newborns came into my head. There are babies coming into the world all the time and so many different kind, and being springtime this is the time to do it.

You don't have to get only animals but anything to do with the topic of being a new born. I could even be an new plant sprouting. But what I want to see is the picture that when you look at it has great lighting, treatment, and just makes you go AHHHHH!

So the challenge starts today Saturday the 20th and will end the 27th. Good luck and have some fun!


The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going. You post an image. The host chooses the winner. The decision of the judge (the Host!) is final. The judge is not eligible. The winner then chooses the next topic, judges the winner and passes on the baton to that person.

Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera.

You can do all the post processing you want. However, it is most helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo. Feel free to comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, put an asterix ( ) next to the title of the image.

Here are some guidelines:

When posting your picture, change the Subject of your post to display your picture title. This way, when someone comments (i.e. replies), it will read your photo's title. If all entries read "Re: CTF Mini Challenge #61"... it will be very boring to scan the list.

Either embed your image in the thread 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). Also try and resize your photos prior to posting so they're sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll ( 800 pixels on the longest side works best.)

And how do you embed a picture? I'm glad you asked:

1. While your photo on Pbase (or any other web site) is open, copy the URL address from the address box on your tool bar, then paste it into your reply thread. Add a .jpg extension to get the photo to show up. Click on preview to make sure it's what you want.


2. Right click on the image in Pbase (or where ever you've hosted it), click on "Properties"... highlight the link with the .jpg extension on it and paste it into your message text.

Provide any additional information you want.

You may enter up to THREE pictures, but they should be within a single post. Please limit the size of your entries to conserve bandwidth. 250K or less works well.

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.
