***Mini Challenge 690 ***...Favourite images taken in 2022

The Challenge starts now and ends on Sunday 11th December 2022 at 15.00 GMT. I will publish the results the following day, at the latest.


1. This is about your favourites from the images you have taken so far this calendar year, 2022. Bonus marks might well be given for any images taken during the life of this challenge.

Individual photographs can be submitted as exhibits or entries. There is a maximum of 3 entries; and you can submit as many exhibits as you like.

Entries compete for the places and the winner gets to host the next challenge...set the theme, acknowledge and review contributions and then pick the winners. Please consider submitting images as entries, it would be excellent to increase the number of hosts and hosting is fun.

Awards: Honourable Mentions will be selected from both exhibits and entries. First, Second and Third places will be selected only from entries. The much coveted Dishonourable Mentions could be selected from either category.

I will endeavour to be prompt in acknowledging the contributions but do bear in mind I am on UK time.

2. The subject matters of the photographs for this mini challenge can be whatever you wish. I hope to see a range of portraits, landscapes, wildlife, macro, street etc etc.

The images need not be technically perfect unless, of course, being technically perfect is what makes them your favourites. BUT, and you will note that it is a BIG but, it would be nice if there was some background information as to what exactly gives the submitted images favourite status to you. That information could easily influence my decision making.

3. Photos must have been taken by you in 2022 and can be from any make of camera (including cell phones).

4. There are no restrictions on processing or on composite shots - all are acceptable. It's the image that counts, not how it was produced. Post processing and modification can be as light as you like, all the way up to fully abstract or composite images.

5. 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.

6. It's best to post all images using the "Reply to thread" button below this first post. This makes collating the entries and exhibits much easier.

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.

And with this challenge it probably isn't necessary for me to give some of my favourites as examples.....however

Have fun.
