Re: *** Mini Challenge 338 *** Spring blooms eternal!***WINNERS!***

Some of you may not have seen this because I didn't post it as a new thread.  My apologies.

First off, thank you all for participating. It's always a joy to see what you folks come up with - even with such a clichéd topic as "Spring". There were many worthy of note. Here are the ones that caught my eye.

Of these, the order is pure whim on my part. I like them all a great deal.

Nothing says Spring to me like my wife's allergic reaction to tree pollen. So an Honorable Mention to Ed Form for this picture of the culprit.

And here's your starting point for the next Mini Challenge:


1. Enter photos: Submissions to Win, and/or Exhibitions to Show.

2. Submissions to Win: up to 3 Shots.

3. Exhibitions to Show: are encouraged and unlimited: put the word Exhibition in the Header of your Post if you do not want to be chosen as the next host. Also: if you post more than 3 photos, label the additional ones as exhibition, the first 3 will be eligible to be chosen as winners.

4. Photos from any camera taken at any time. Also encouraged (not required): a title, a story, describe conditions, settings, post processing, etc. as may be interesting along with the photo.

5. Submitting photos: for clarity, it is best to reply to this original post, (rather than under someone else’s post), and to change the subject line of your post.

6. Comments on other people's photos add to the fun, the comments may be the best prize.

7. Host will select and announce the winners at the end date. 1st, 2nd, 3rd Place winners will be chosen, (as well as some honorable mentions if the host wants to).

8. 1st Place Winner Hosts the next Mini-Challenge. Pick a theme; start a new thread; give a description and some samples of what you have in mind; copy and paste (and tweak a little bit if you wish) these rules; change the end date.

9. 2nd Place Winner becomes the host if the 1st place winner requests that for any reason.

The challenge is open for a week and ends at XXXXXX
