    Challenge 154. The Colour Red.

    As you maybe aware from a previous discussion I have had on the forum I tend to struggle taking anything that is bright red or yellow. So I thought I would see how everyone else manages with the colour red.

    We have been struggling to reach any great numbers lately, so may I encourage old & especially new members to enter, it will be judged in a fair & constructive way so do not worry about any comments, they will not be detrimental to anyone.


    Judging - is based,

    * fulfilling the brief
    * a good photo - creativity is as equally important as technical excellence in this challenge- (though that comes as standard as we are all using Canon Cameras obviously)


    The usual rules apply:-



    • 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.
    • All entries to be shot with a Canon EOS camera i.e. SLR / DSLR / M & R 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 maximum (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 30th June, so plenty of time to get thinking of a subject.

                I am sorry to tell both Bob & Canon Fan’s photos can not be entered in this months challenge as the rules state that the shots must be taken within the month of the challenge. Please do not let this put you off from entering, still got to the 30th to enter so plenty of time to find a new red subject

                        Five legitimate entries so far this month, a good varied subject, open to all. Would love more shots, especially from some of our newer members, you have a week left, so get those cameras out & give it a go.
