Mini-Challenge #565 – Trees in an urban environment

Just like Gloaming likes bees I like trees. They provide us with useful thinks like oxygen, fruits and wood. But they also help us to retain water and soil and provide us with shade on sunny days and there are many more ways in which tree are useful to us.

But the best thing for us as photographers they, unlike bees, don’t fly away when you want to photograph them!

Because “Trees” would be to wide a subject, I choose “Trees in an urban environment”.

Any picture of a tree is eligible as long as the tree is clearly not standing in a forest, a place that looks like a forest or an all-natural environment and as long as it is connected to soil. So a tree in a pot is ok but chopped firewood isn’t.

How I will judge the photographs:

Original perspectives or an original interpretation of theme is a good way to win. Also a more “urban” environment is more likely to win.

Contest closes Thursday, 21 October at 12:00 MET (seven days from now).

THE RULES (copied from an older post)

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

You may enter up to three competition images.

Please reply to the FIRST (ORIGINAL) post only if you are submitting an entry 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 #565 – Trees in an urban environment" - it would be very boring to scan the list.

Please state whether your submission is an ENTRY or EXHIBIT.

If you do not wish to enter the MC and host the next challenge should you win, please state your submission as "Exhibition" in the subject line (or in the message text).

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 or does not respond within three days, it moves to the 2nd place, etc.

Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera.

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

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

Feel free to comment on other contestants' images.


Please embed your image in the thread. As a show of courtesy, and for clarity, please remove the original post when replying, so you don't bring back any previous photos unless you discuss (refer to) them.

*** Have Fun*** We want the mini challenges to be fun and not a chore!
