Default Speed Challenge #47 OPEN

Speed Challenge #47 OPEN

One of the hardest things about this comp now is coming up with a new subject so I have chosen for this comp an OPEN Catergory, as I like making my life hard on the judging side .......... Post anything you want, (bar any form of full nudity) and it would be great to see the best image that you have taken..........

Can I also add, for people who just come in to see whats being posted and might like a copy, that pictures entered into this competition are the copyright of the respective photographers, even though most of them do not show a copyright mark, so if you like the pictures you see please contact the photographer as I'm sure they will have no problem selling you a print.

Rob

Images submitted should conform to the current forum guidelines (maximum of 1024 pixels on the longest side, and 150Kb for attachments).

This comp is all about having a bit of fun, and I look forward to seeing everyones interpretation of the subject, and good luck.

I think you may just be right there Ed but no one reads the rules any more

I love Pete's enterpretation, and it should be named................... It failed to "open"

Some cracking images Guys and Gals........... Keep um coming

Rob

ps Stefan, Fire34, Airfrog and Shanny............

I hate to be a pain, but could you edit your posts to show brief EXIF data including ISO, shutter speed and aperture used, as a few of us really want to know how you took your pics......... cheers for that Rob
