***Mini Challenge # 508*** Matters military. Part 2..for when,

as looks likely, the first thread gets to 149 posts.


I hope this is a popular subject........PLEASE limit the exhibits to a maximum of three.

Matters military can include from battleships to medals, tanks to uniforms, fighter planes (flying or static) to memorials......basically anything military related.

I have no examples to offer at the moment as my timing is out for I am off to see Old Phyllis from Fury and the Battle of Britain memorial flight at the weekend.

I know there are many of you on this forum who have served and I am really excited to see what you come up with including any back story.

And what am I looking for? An image which makes me go WOW will win. I have no idea at the moment what that means but I will know when I see it. So technical...yes...evocative...double yes. I remember being at a cemetery at Ypres and being overwhelmed by what I was seeing.

The challenge is now open and will end at 1pm GMT Saturday 23rd June. I will announce the results the following day.

I will endeavour to acknowledge all exhibits and entries; to facilitate this it would help if all entries and exhibits were posted as replies to this thread rather than as responses to others' posts within it. Thank you.

As I am in the UK please also bear in mind that my acknowledgements might not be immediate.

PLEASE NOTE and YES, I know I am repeating myself but

I would like to introduce a MAXIMUM number of exhibits for this challenge, THREE only please.


Other than the above the general rules are the same as always...

1. Submit a maximum of 3 Entries to win and/or THREE Exhibits.

2. Photos must have been taken by you but can be from any camera, including cell phones, and may have been taken at any time.

3. There are no restrictions on processing or on composite shots - all are acceptable. It's the image that counts, not how it was produced.

4. Please state in the header of your post, or in the comments bar below each image, whether they are "Entry" or "Exhibit". Non-labelled submissions will be assumed to be Exhibits.

5. Please post all images using the "Reply to thread" button below this first post.

6. At the end of this challenge, I will announce First, Second and Third places from the Entries in a separate RESULTS thread and I may select some other entries or exhibits for Honourable Mentions.

Grand Prize: The First Place winner becomes the host of the next challenge and has 3 days to begin it. The winner can respond to the challenge setter with a forum post or PM. If that individual doesn't respond in 3 days, or has to decline to serve, the Second Place winner becomes the next host. If that individual declines to serve, the Third Place winner becomes the next host.
Growing old is inevitable; growing up, however, is optional.
And I have opted out.
