***Mini-Challenge 526*** Winners
1

There were Many, many great Exhibitions in the challenge. Interesting to see from all over the world.

Now 3rd place goes to Den (Snappy Den)

A rather unique piece of art....

2nd Place is Reaffords shot. I like how the lighting highlighted the statue

And some Honorable mentions in no particular order

Gto lucky to have this as it has been torn down

Bjorns up close for detail

Ed's interesting pic captured a;ll the detail perfectly

Jerry another interesting shot

Mike Geier Funeral Car

Mina's Scene

Nick's bottles perfect detail here

Sy692 Nice perspective

Oh, and now Number One Place in the winner's Circle

The Terracotta Warriors

I love it!

Winners Info for new thread

***Mini-Challenge 527*** ""Theme""

Now for the legal stuff...

Mini-Challenge begins at "___- today, ____- and ends at ____ on ____
1. Submit a maximum of 3 Entries to win and/or as many Exhibits as you wish.

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. 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, but images sometimes need to be posted in comments when sub-threads develop, to keep the sense of the conversation going, so I will hunt right through the posts looking for valid images.

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 submissions, entries or exhibits, for Honorable 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.

Congrats Den for you interesting and unique photo.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving as well.  We are getting together at my son and daughter in laws.  I’ve got to make my signature sweet potato casserole dish.  They ask me to make it every year.  At this stage, I’m glad I still remember how

Mina

Mina,

And a happy and healthy Thanksgiving to you and your family. We'll be celebrating with our best friends, their children and grandchildren (twin 2 year old girls) and our son and his girlfriend. We're charged with preparing gluten free stuffing and a couple of sweet potato pies, one for everyone else and one for me (just kidding!).

Best,

Den

P.S. My favorite sweet potato pie - easy and yummy!

Directions

  1. Boil sweet potatoes whole in skin for 40 to 50 minutes, or until done. Run cold water over the sweet potatoes, and remove the skin.
  2. Break apart sweet potatoes in a bowl. Add butter, and mix well with mixer. Stir in sugar, milk, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until mixture is smooth. Pour filling into an unbaked pie crust.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 55 to 60 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Pie will puff up like a souffle, and then will sink down as it cools.

Same to you Den! Last Thanksgiving I had a nasty argument with my sons father in law and left in the middle of dinner! Think he should smoke less pot so he would be in the real world!
