*** Mini Challenge 514 - Trash, Litter, Junk, Rubbish, Pollution ***

Thanks to no-one wanting to host , it is onto me. Thanks to WilbaW for hosting last, difficult challenge.

And since it is spring in the northern hemisphere of this planet, a new, very inappropriate challenge: Trash, Litter, Junk, Rubbish, Pollution.

Any image illustrating or showing any of the above can be entered. You can show its ugliness, you can enter images of trash that are actually pleasing to the eye, images with accidental captures of rubbish. Old images, or trash or pollution you come across this week.

No idea yet on what they will be judged on, I guess that will depend on the entries.

This challenge will close at 23:59 GMT on Monday April 3rd 2017.

Challenge Rules

The host gives you a topic and you post up to three images that fit. Any picture you have taken is eligible regardless of time taken or camera.

The host chooses the winners and honourable mentions, and posts those in a new thread. The host's decision is final. Remember, it's all about fun, sharing, and learning.

The winner of this challenge then hosts the next challenge, judges the winner of that one, and so on it goes. The winner of this challenge will have 48 hours to post the next challenge. If that doesn't happen, 2nd place will have 24 hours to do so, then it's up to 3rd place.

Submission Posting Guidelines

Post each one of your three submissions in its own reply to this post. Give each post a unique Subject, like, "HCB - Derriere la Gare Saint-Lazare", "HCB - Boy With Wine Bottles", and "HCB - Mexican Ladies".

It's best to embed an image in it's post rather than linking to somewhere else (you'll get more views that way). If you want people to give you constructive comments and criticism, ask for C&C.

Feel free to post photos "for exhibition only" if you want to share more than three or won't be available to host the next challenge, just let us know that in your posts.

Size your images to no bigger than around 1,500 pixels wide or 1,000 pixels tall, so those with smaller monitors can see your image at full resolution. Use a reasonable amount of JPEG compression to limit the file size of your entries so we conserve bandwidth.

You can do all the post-processing you want, but try to preserve the EXIF so we can see which camera, lens, and settings were used. If you know the EXIF won't come with the image, let us know that kind of stuff in the text of your post.

Comment Posting Guidelines

Feel free to post comments on the images. If you want to save bandwidth, remove the image from your reply so you just post text.

If you would give someone else's submission a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place, click on the green "Like?" thumb on the top right of the post, so we know which images were most popular. The host will make up their own mind which images best fit their topic without being influenced by that.
