****Mini-Challenge #260 It Comes In Threes****

Mini Challenge #260 – It Comes In Threes

My topic is for pictures showing groups of three. The three objects must be the main subject, and must be very similar or identical objects..human, animal, or other. There is no limit to your imagination..be creative!!

You may use post processing to enhance your pictures, and can share the treatment you applied. If you're familiar with extracting exif-data, let us know camera model, shutter-speeds, f-stops and ISO-numbers: others may be able learn from that!

HAVE FUN WITH IT

The contest begins now, and will end Wednesday, April 28th 2010, at 1800 MDT/GMT-6(6p.m.)

THE RULES

The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going. You may enter up to three competition images. 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, it moves to the 2nd place, etc.

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

Please reply to the FIRST (ORIGINAL) post if you are submitting an entry and 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 260"... it would be very boring to scan the list.

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. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, put an asterisk * next to the title of the image.

POSTING GUIDELINES

Please embed your image in the thread. Also please re-size your photos prior to posting so they're sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll (approx. 800 pixels on the longest side works best.)

As a show of courtesy, and to save bandwidth, please remove the original post when replying, so you don't bring back any previous photos.

Bob’s #2

Three large Great Blue Heron chicks in a nest far too small. They seem to be voting on which one leaves first. They flew/fell out of the nest about ten days later.

Re: Bob’s #1

Amazing one Bob, now I'm apprehensive to join after seeing such a beautiful picture.

Unfortunately since I got my G11 a couple of months ago, I don't have an old picture archive to look through, and will have to shoot the challenge pictures this week.

Re: My serial of "threes" *

Thanks, Ami. What an interesting set you have! I have to say I'm surprised the first picture is in Berlin..looks more like from the Wild West! Great capture with the last pic.

Re: Ben-Ami 3

The dogs look like they have fun together. Nicely done with the three boys in front of the picture of three..do they belong to you? They grew to be handsome men!

Great set, Don..the dewdrops pic is eyecatching. The blacksmiths aren't quite as pretty as the flowers
