>>>>>Olympus Challenge # 199 - Cause and Effect<<<<<<

This challenge is inspired by the recent hurricane, which I experienced in New Jersey US, where Cause and Effect was quite evident. Cause and Effect (also written as cause-effect or cause/effect or cause and consequence) refers to the philosophical concept of causality, in which an action or event will produce a certain response to the action in the form of another event. Cause and Effect is a central concept in Buddhism. However you don’t have to get philosophical, there are a lot of nonhuman examples of cause and effect in the environment. (And also remember it's better with a great shot with questionable theme relevance then no shot at all)

As usual interpret freely if you can think of other interpretations related to the title, And as always, stay focused and have fun!

The challenge runs from today, December 6, 2012 until Monday ,Dec, 17, 2012 at 2100 GMT. That’s when the voting will commence and last two days. On Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2012 at 2100 GMT, the winner will be declared and that’s who will host Competition 201 which begins January 3. 2013.

Newcomers are totally welcome and encouraged to join the fun. Just post here if you need assistance to get images into the gallery or if you are not certain what's going on. We all started off clueless and make the same mistakes.

To post a photo in any of the galleries, just select the gallery of choice from below: Competition or Exhibition or Originals. On the top of the page you will see "edit this gallery", click on that and it will ask for a password. Enter "kickass" (don't ask, just keep it lower case) and you should be able to make it from there. If you still need assistance, ask and you shall be answered. Sometimes the answer is even the right one!

Add your name after the title (makes voting easier). Please limit your image sizes to 800 pixels or less on the long side, and make sure the file size is no more than 200kB. Pbase lets us run these challenges free on their website, so please honor their generosity by keeping your file size reasonable. Ensure the EXIF data is intact for the competition, with the date it was taken.
