  1. Congratulations to @Steve Hyde who won with this great umbrella failure shot. . . . . See? It's always worth shooting the weather. In second place, just one vote behind Steve was @Doc with his wilting candle. Thanks to all for the entries and for voting. Over to you Steve for the November Challenge.
  2. Inspired by this month's challenge, "impotent candle"... . . .
  3. Not an easy shortlist to compile either. Plenty of great shots had to be excluded. @Phil Crean has the right attitude although his claims of winning are a bit grandiose as he very nearly made the shortlist...
  4. Thanks for your entries - if only I could have had a shortlist of 18 rather than 8! Here are my choices, for better or worse. BrasilNut - Affluence fail Simon Evans - Long-distance runner physiology fail Steve Hyde - Green umbrella fail Abiyoyo - Havana car fail Funkyworm - England field hockey defence fail Sally - White van man reading comprehension fail Doc - Red candle fail Keith Douglas - Rowing fail
  5. We are now closed to entries. Thanks to all who've submitted. I'll put a poll up with my shortlist in the next few days.
  6. Last day today, folks. Any more entries to be posted by midnight tonight GMT.
  7. One week left! Thanks to all who've entered so far. I can see I'll have my work cut out whittling down the shortlist.
  8. There's a reasonable art/fine art photography market in the US. Plus he's involved with Lollipop magazine.
  9. There's a piece on this guy - Joshua Paul. Shoots modern Formula 1 with a 1913 Graflex. Wonderful stuff.
  10. Having made my way back to Yorkshire from wild West Wales, here's this month's challenge. I don't think we've had the subject of "Failure" before so let's go with that. (If we have and I've missed it, please let me know. I'm prepared for the irony). I'm thinking that it might be a mechanical failure, human failure, economic failure or something else entirely. Serious or humorous, major or trivial... you get the drift. Please post up to three of your images. Closing date is midnight UK time on the 31st October. Here's some not-particularly-startli
  11. Thanks for the kind comments all. As ever, there were some impressive entries and I'm delighted to have topped the poll. Thanks Steve for a great subject and competitive shortlist; I know it's a cliché but it's true - any shortlisted image would have been a deserved winner. I'm en route back from West Wales at the moment (RedSnapper's stamping ground) so I'll get the next comp up and running on Tuesday.
  12. Thanks for the nomination, Steve. A great mix of wild and dot-so-wild critters. Good luck everyone.
  13. First time I've done this for a while. A Eurasian Brown Bear with a Black-Headed Gull in close attendance in a forest on the Finnish/Russian border . . Two Northern Gannets disputing who has first dibs on the fish, the North Sea, off Bempton/Flambrough, UK . . Juvenile Mountain Gorilla munching on some vegetation in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda
  14. We might also have to recalibrate what we think of as a "crappy photo".
  15. Acksherly, "humorous" is the correct British English spelling too, in spite of the humour/humor difference.
  16. If you're shooting raw, in-camera colour space choice doesn't matter (i.e. aRGB or sRGB). I don't think anyone in this thread has said not to get an accurate colour balance.
