****Challenge #55: SUMMERTIME ****

Hi all! I’m much honored to be the host of yet another Challenge. I want to thank Leung for hosting the previous one (and of course for declaring me the winner…) I must admit that having won a few times, I have put to the Challenge my most favorite topics, so I got a little stuck to what I should pick for this one. Then again I thought “Hey it’s summer, why shouldn’t we play with that?” So this Challenge is about summer and whatever that means to each and everyone of you. I guess for most of us summer means holidays, relaxing, sun, sea, nice memories from our childhood, and so on, so you’ll see that most of my examples are relevant to these. But I’ll be happy to accept anything each one of you associates with summer. I think this is an easy one so give me the best you’ve got!

PLEASE PAY ATTENTION! This one is going to last less than a week, because in a few days we’re leaving for our vacations, so I must be through with judgment and everything.
DEADLINE is next Monday 4th of August by 24.00 GMT.
Regards Alex

Some examples:

R U L E S:

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

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, lens and exposure info 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 (CC) next to the title of your image [e.g. Sunset with Canada Geese (CC)].

VERY IMPORTANT!!! - Please reply to the FIRST (ORIGINAL) post if you are submitting an entry and please RENAME THE SUBJECT TO INDICATE THE TITLE OF YOUR PHOTO ENTRY.

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 works best.)
Instructions for embedding a photo:

Basically putting http: your-hosting-site/ your-photo.jpg will show your photo here. This means you can:

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.
