September Photo Challenge

Yes it’s back again for another month. It’s the photo challenge and for September the photo challenge your theme is…

Planes, trains and automobiles

planes trainsHow you decide to interpret that theme is entirely up to you. Perhaps you’ll want to take it literally and enter a photo of a vintage aeroplane, a stream train or your favourite sports car. Maybe you’ll try something a little less obvious. Perhaps you’ll move in close and shoot an interesting part of the object or maybe you’ll find a reflection or shadow cast by your plane, train or automobile.

Once you’ve made your photo you’ll then need to do three things…

1. Check your entry meets with the rules at the bottom of this post.
2. Upload your image to the Flickr Group page at http://www.flickr.com/groups/2064982@N24/

REMEMBER: Although it’s not a rule, the idea behind the photo challenge is to encourage you to go out and shoot a new photo rather then entering an existing image.

I’m very happy to report that the Photo Challenge is once again being sponsored by Print Yours. They are an independent print lab who specialise in creating small run, high quality prints. Check out their web site for more information http://www.printyours.co.uk/

So what will the winner receive? Well, Print Yours have generously offered to print the winning entry on their 270gsm Photo Satin paper up to a whopping 24”x16”. That’s an £18 print for FREE! If you’re the lucky winner then all you need to do is send a high res version to Print Yours (via email) and they’ll do the rest.
