Speed Challenge #47 OPEN

One of the hardest things about this comp now is coming up with a new subject :D so I have chosen for this comp an OPEN Catergory, as I like making my life hard on the judging side :lol:.......... 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 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
