Nikon Challenge No 9

As everyone that answered voted to continue I am continuing the challenge skipping Nikon Challenge #8 as the winner of #7 did not take it up. The runner-up Cenizas suggested Movement or motion but was unable to do it as he was about to go out of his home town.

The Nikon Challenge #9 will therefore be Movement

I will try to post the History of previous challenges seperately.

The picture from me to start it off is under the rules. Please read the rules if you have not done so previously – Good Luck!

R U L E S:

The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going. You post ONE 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, 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.

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

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 asterisk ( ) next to the title of your image.

When posting your picture, reply to the main thread message (!) and 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: Nikon Super Challenge #6"... it will be very boring to scan the list. Furthermore it will save the host a lot of time while judging entries.

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 to 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 concerning your entry you want.
