    Challenge 137: 'It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...'

    The challenge is to produce an image that best represents the Christmas season.

    I am interpreting this as wide as possible so it covers members from all areas and backgrounds. There should be lots of scope for creative thinking, so not just Robins in the snow or colourful lights although I expect these might feature somewhere!

    Judging will be based on my assessment of how effective the image is in satisfying the brief.

    Please read the general rules below:-

    • The competition subject shall be selected by the winner of the preceding competition who will also judge the competition.
    • One picture per person; images should conform to general image posting rules.
    • Please use an EOS Canon camera - DSLR or M series
    • Posted images should be taken during the running period of the competition. Any images submitted that were taken before the competition started, or after the competition has ended, will be deemed invalid.
    • Images 800 pixels widest max (to help those with small monitors).
    • No Photoshop frames and borders.
    • Include a title; the image must convey the theme without title description.
    • Please, NO comments on images- on this or another thread- until the round is over.
    • No canvassing e.g. “I’m thinking of posting this image for the challenge, what do you think?”
    • I will pick 1st, 2nd and 3rd favourite images (please don’t PM me to discuss my choices).

    Closing date for entries is midnight Sunday 31st December.

    Have fun!

                  Been struggling to get time to produce an entry, but SWMBO finished the cake today, so I chose that.
