**************Challenge #65 HOLIDAY SEASON*******************

As abhijeet is off to business trip, I've been entrusted with the new challenge.

Going to keep this one simple. HOLIDAY SEASON.

ANY Holiday ANYWHERE. I want to see pictures which bring out something unique about the holiday, shows the holiday in a new light, tells a story, or just cute. So bring them on.

I'm a bit busy at work, but I'll check by everyday, so if the thread fills up, be kind and start a new one :). The challenge will be only 1 week long and will end at 10 PM on MONDAY the 1st, EST .

And here are the


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. If the winner runs next challenge; if s/he 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, and so on.

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 (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 and please make sure you reply to the original thread when submitting your image. Otherwise it's getting confusing!!


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.

This might give you a chance to see some of your own pictures in a different light, or better yet to go out and get some new creative shots. Have fun!
