  2. Last call. Just over 24hrs. to go before the curtains close on the December challenge.

    Have a Good Christmas.


    Alan with one L. The Angel took the other as in:- 

    The first noel, the angel did say,
    Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay;
    In fields where they lay keeping their sheep,
    On a cold winter's night that was so deep.
    Noel, noel, noel, noel,


    This is my setup when away. MacBook Pro 13inch. 2Ghz Intel Core i5, 8GM ram and 251 GB flash storage. Small, light weight and well built. Run a 27in mac in the office but have no problem post processing images on the 13in screen. Runs LR 6.13 as smooth as silk even when processing large files from the D850. When out doing Live News with no wifi I seamless connect the mac to the iphone to upload images to Alamy. A bit expensive but very reliable. Push the boat out Southpole you only live once and Christmas is around the corner.

  4. I know alot of you have things on your mind at the moment regarding 50% to 40% reduction in the fees that you will receive and also here in Britain the continues debate on Brexit but life must go on. Only 14 days left for the December challenge, so keep sending more excellent imges of converging lines.

  5. I had in my mind to have a Christmas theme for this months challenge and how best to show this festive season in your selected images. Bah Humbug some may say but not this year. My theme for December is Converging Lines. There are plenty of fine examples of Converging Lines on the internet, some are man made others are in the natural environment. They do not have to be straight lines, you can have curves, spirals etc or even the shape of the landscape.

    Normal rules - each contender can provide up to 3 images, all to be from Alamy; BUT; as I am away at the end of December, the closing date for entries will be Midnight on Tuesday 25th and all votes in by the 30th. Example of my take on this theme are shown below. Lets see some excellent images, but remember to have a great Christmas.
















    Many thanks Kumar for the November challenge and all who voted for my image. Can I also congratulate the worthy runners up and all the forum members that participated. I've an excellent topic for the December challenge which I shall let you know on the 1st.
