March Challenge: Health

Recommended Posts

Hi all! Thanks to all who put in entries for February's competition, and congratulations to all the finalists!

I wish the purchasers liked the ghost horse image as much as the voters did!!

 

Also, thanks to Phillippe for setting an interesting topic, and to Col for stepping in with the judging :)

 

This months competition to go with my handle is "HEALTH" - any aspect, could be good health, bad health, healthy or not!

 

Usual rules, max 3 entries per photographer, entries end at midnight 31st March, which will give me 3 weeks to work out how to do a pol!

 

On my way to Spain this minute so will put some entries in in the next few days :)

 

Cheers

Kumar

Indeed.

 

Health, not sure that I do it.

Tough challenge. But who could be healthier than Popeye, the man who introduced the world to the power of canned spinach.

OK, you guys. Bear with me. Imagine a children's book about "Going to the Dentist".

I just stumbled onto this challenge thing.  I'll play.

Do I need to explain them, or give a title?  Is there a post of how-to's and the rules?

Oh, yours are soooo right for the topic. Good for you. No "rules" beyond that you must have taken the photos yourself. Three entries each time. Some people don't put them all up at once.  Some of us write something about our images. The only "prize" is that you get to pick the next topic and select the finalists. Of course, that means you also have to set up the poll. Arrrrgh. Good to have you with us. I think it is a lot of fun.

Thanks Paulette.  I was worried that the ones I chose were too "stocky", but we'll see.

Ah! Setting up the poll....I will need to look that one up!

 

Reimar - welcome and good choices of images - how can they be "too stocky" on Alamy I wonder? ;)

Hah.  Good question.  I wasn't sure about the criteria for a winning shot.  It may be more along the lines of photo-club judge appeal rather than salability?  Of course none of those shots have sold (yet).

Here's another Photograph from me

I like that this month is a bit more stock related, rather than just pretty pictures in a camera club competition (nothing wrong with camera clubs, but this is a stock forum after all).
