**Mini Challenge #420 "The decisive moment" **

This weeks topic is the "Decisive moment" popularised by Henri Cartier Bresson. That is a split second moment you have captured that is both interesting and asks the viewer a question or two (why? how? who? etc). It's a pretty open ended challenge but the key is the question bit and the most interesting shot will take 1st place so get your thinking caps on

Here's a classic example from the man himself

This weeks challenge will run from now until next Monday, March 24th @ 7pm GMT (Greenwich Mean Time).


The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going.

You may enter up to three competition images.

The host chooses the winner after the challenge closes (usually after one week). 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 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, or if the 2nd cannot host, the baton goes to the third, etc.

Any picture you've taken is eligible, regardless of when taken or camera used.

When Submitting:

Please reply to the FIRST (ORIGINAL) post and please remember to 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 #419..." it would be very boring to scan the list.

Try to put all of your entries within a 'single' post.

Please give a title to each photo - this makes it easier to differentiate when giving comments.

Entries previously submitted are welcome, as long as they weren't winners.

Feel free to comment on other contestants' images.
