Show me a picture you think would make a good cover for a novel and include a clever title for the book. You don't have to add text directly to the picture. Just post the title of the book above your entry. You can include a fake author name if you think it adds to the fun. Let your imagination run wild. :lol:

The challenge begins when posted, and will end on Monday, Dec 26, 2016 at midnight CST. The winner will be announced shortly thereafter.

CHALLENGE RULES:
1. Camera: Any DIGITAL CAMERA is allowed, (not just DSLR)
2. Time: Any on-topic photo taken at any time is eligible, although photos that have won other competitions should NOT be entered.
3. Size: See standard P.O.T.N. Image Posting Rules.
4. Post Processing: Do whatever you like and the host will decide if it works.
5. Posting: ONE PHOTO per photographer in each challenge.
6. Details: Show camera model & lens used. Post brief EXIF data including ISO, shutter speed and aperture used.
7. Commenting: Please, NO COMMENTING DURING CHALLENGE feel free to comment in this thread after a winner is declared.
8. Content: Keep it clean, and both Family and Work safe.
9. Have questions? PM me.
10. Have FUN!


* THE WINNER ALWAYS SETS THE THEME FOR THE NEXT CHALLENGE, POSTS IT AND JUDGES IT - BE PREPARED! A new challenge should be posted ASAP after you have been declared the winner.

Comments:

darkslinger - Perfect cover. I swear I've seen it in a bookstore before.

Tom Reichner - Love that picture. One of the few occupations that hasn't changed much in 150 or so years.

Paul B. - Funny title. Maybe they'll use the cover for their catalog?

OldCrow - Perfect cover for a guidebook.

dixiedawn - Great title and author combo. Nice image, too. Moody indeed.

Winners:

Gotta go with darkslinger on this one. As I said, perfect book cover image. Close second to dixiedawn. Third to OldCrow

Thanks for the entries. All yours, darkslinger.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Way to go DarkSlinger - I LOOOOOOVVE that image!!! Really, really love it.

There is a little story to go with the photo I posted; it actually is going to be used as a book cover. A couple weeks ago a western action / adventure author asked me if I would license this image to him for use on his next novel. And yes, the novel is entitled "On the Trail of Cattle Rustlers".

I'm glad you did - now I don't have to host the next challenge ;-)a

The right one got picked - Darkslinger's woods shot was a "no brainer", and there are mighty few of those in these challenges.
