****** Mini Challenge 179 -Lost, Forgotten, decaying******

Thank you Nicolas for running the last challenge and for choosing my image.

OK, this weeks challenge is going to be.... Lost, Forgotten, Decaying. this could be someting falling into disrepair, something discarded, someone ..er... lost . Examples will follow in next post.

The challenge will end at 9:00am on Thursday 11th September GMT.

Good luck, I'm looking forward to seeing your entries.



1. Have fun sharing and seeing what others share!

2. The host supplies a topic and you post 1-3 images. The host judges the winners (1st, 2nd and 3rd) and is not eligible to enter. The 1st place winner then chooses the next topic, judges the winner and passes on the baton to the new champion.

3. Any photo you’ve taken is eligible, regardless of when taken or camera used.

4. Any amount of post-processing is allowed. However, it is helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo. You may comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you some criticism, put an asterisk ( ) next to the title of the image.

Guidelines for posting:

1. When posting your picture, reply to the original challenge post, change the Subject of your post to display your picture title.

2. 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).

3. 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.)

  • Enter 1-3 photos and put them in a single post. Limit the size of photos to 250K each to conserve bandwidth.

  • Please remove any photos from previous posts.

To embed your photo in a post:

  • With your photo on Pbase (or any other site) copy its URL from the URL box on your tool bar and paste it into your post. Add a .jpg extension to make the photo show up. Click on preview to make sure it's there.


  • Right click on the image in your host site, click on "Properties", highlight the link with the .jpg extension on it and paste it into your message text. In firefox you can choose copy image location.

Rules for the host:

  • The winner has up to three days (72 hours) to begin a new mini-challenge, or the honor goes to the #2 finisher and so forth.

  • As host, please add the name of your challenge to the bottom of the list and delete the top one, so the list doesn’t grow too long.
