*** Mini-Challlenge #343 - Nostalgia ***

Thanks to Greg for the honor of hosting this Mini-Challenge!

My most recent challenge of Light Trails may have been a bit out there and beyond what most people typically photograph, so like Greg, I am going for a topic this time that everyone should be able to relate to.

The topic is Nostalgia.  Anything goes as long as there is a feeling of nostalgia behind it.  Places, Objects, People, A Moment in Time, etc… Stories to accompany your photograph are highly encouraged, but not required.

Judging will be based on how interesting I find the photo, technical quality, and creativity.  The standard camera rules apply (as in anything goes), but I’d like to specifically encourage scanned film pictures if they capture the mood of the challenge.

A few examples that aren't necessarily great images, but have the right idea:

A photo of the church my wife and I were married in.

A photo of the actual Back to the Future DeLorean!

A photo of my late cat may he RIP.

This challenge ends officially at 5pm C.S.T., Wednesday, October 17, 2012.

Standard Rules

The host gives you a topic of interest. You post a maximum of three images. 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 (because we like to know).

Feel free to comment on other contestant’s images. If you want people to give you constructive criticism, ask for C&C.

The host chooses the winner. The host's decision is final. The host is not eligible.

The winner then hosts the next challenge, judges the winner, and passes on the baton to that person. The winner has 48 hours to post the new challenge. If that doesn't happen 2nd place has 24 hours to do so, and if that doesn't happen it's up to the 3rd place winner.

Posting Guidelines

When posting your picture, change the Subject of your post to display your picture titles and/or your name. This way, when someone 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).

You may enter up to 3 pictures, but put them in 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 around 1200 pixels on the longest dimension. This is to let those with smaller monitors to see your image at full resolution. Please limit the file 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.
