*** Mini Challenge № 350: The Great Outdoors ***

The next challenge is titled "The Great Outdoors." UPDATED: now open for all locations.

Apparently the US Southwest seems too limited in its scope, given the international audience of this forum. So, due to popular demand (thank you also for those you PMd me on this topic), I am expanding the challenge and am making it about the great outdoors.

Show us the natural beauty of the place of your choosing, and we'll forgive you for not having visited the Southwest proper.

Color, B&W, infrared; landscape or people... anything goes. Bonus points for atypical shots, that is to say off the beaten path.

This challenge will run until Tuesday, September 9th, at midnight UTC. Thanks for participating, and good luck!


Challenge rules:

1. Enter photos: 'Entry' to Win, or 'Exhibition' to Show.

2. Entries 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. If you post more than 3 photos, label entries and exhibitions clearly. If you leave shots unlabeled, the first three in your post 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, description of conditions, settings, post processing, etc. so we can all learn what works and what doesn't.

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 to suit your images.

6. Comments on other people's photos definitely 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, change the end date (and tweak the rules a little bit if you wish).

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