*** Challenge 103 - YOUR BACKYARD ***

Many thanks go out to Neil for accepting the previous challenge-hosting challenge:

Very wide-open topic this time around: Your Backyard . Show us what's special in and around yours, through still or (you know me) motion pictures.

You can take that to mean your literal backyard:


Or your figurative backyard (this plant coughed coal dust all over our neighborhood in Chicago):


Please be very liberal with your interpretation of the theme. Really, if you have a photo/video showing something unique about your part of the planet, I'm more than happy to call that your 'backyard.'

I'll be trying to judge 2/3 on artistic vision and 1/3 on technical execution. To help your case on the 2nd part, the higher-resolution you post the better, and EXIF data is always welcome (embedded, linked or summarized in your post).

From active members of this forum, I'll accept pictures from any camera. From lurkers or visitors, only cameras specified in the forum title.


The deadline for entries is the end of the day Sunday, May 30, 11:59pm EDT (3:59am GMT May 31) .

Don't forget - Please reply to the FIRST (ORIGINAL) post if you are submitting an entry and RENAME THE SUBJECT TO INDICATE THE TITLE OF YOUR ENTRY.

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.

Feel free to comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, put a (CC) next to the title of your image [e.g. Sunset with Canada Geese (CC)].

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 (1000 pixels on the longest side works best).

Thanks to all and good luck!!
