***** Mini-Challenge 209 - Dramatic Clouds *****


Thanks to Ove for giving me this great opportunity to host this mini-challenge.

The theme for this challenge will be "Dramatic clouds". I come from a land where it rains almost 8 months a year (Kerala in India). So, I could see clouds of different shapes, sizes, types everyday.

Please post images where clouds adds drama to the picture. The main subjects can be landscapes, architecture, people, events or anything. But, clouds should be there to add punch to the entire image.

This mini-challenge will close on 25th June 2009 at 11:59 PM Pacific Daylight Time (UTC-07:00)

Lets see those amazing images now.

Rules ---

If you submit a photo, please check in when the winners are posted. The first place winner is expected to host the next challenge. If the first place person cannot host, it moves to the 2ND place; etc.

The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going. You post your image(s). 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 contestants' images. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, put an asterisk ( ) next to the title of the image.
Here are some posting guidelines:

When posting your picture, change the Subject of your post to display your name or picture titles. This way, when someone comments (i.e. replies), it will refer specifically to you. If all entries read "Re: Mini Challenge xxx"... it would 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 please re-size 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 Flickr (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 Flickr (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 try to put them within a single post. Please give a title to each photo - this makes it easier to differentiate when giving comments.

Please size your photo no bigger than 800 pixels on the longest dimension. This is to let those with smaller monitors to see your image at full resolution.
Please limit the size of your entries to conserve bandwidth.

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.
