    Default Challenge 126 - Steam

    Just as Dave did last month I also looked back over the years for inspiration and to ensure the subject I had in mind was both original and affording sufficient scope for ingenuity.

    and I've chosen 'Steam'!

    OK, I do have a passion for steam engines but I'm not expecting everyone to go to their local preserved railway for a shoot as I think there is breadth to be enjoyed with the subject as steam is merely the vapour formed when water is heated so, in addition to a gurt big locomotive, it could be:

    • Steam rising from a hot drink
    • Breath on a cold day
    • A misted up bathroom mirror
    • 'steamed up' car windows

    But also it could be whatever produces steam which may be:

    • a large steam locomotive
    • a steam boat
    • a traction engine / steam roller
    • a kettle on a camping stove
    • an iron
    • a bathroom tap
    • a geyser
    • or...

    And to further extend the scope I'm not even necessarily looking for visible steam as anything obviously related to steam is OK by me.

    That's it then, nice and simple so let's have plenty of entries.

    Pay attention as here comes the small print...

    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 (in the UK) on Tuesday 28th February (yes I know shortest month of the year, sorry!).

    Good luck to all,

    "Run out of Steam"

    Sorry have had next to no time out with the camera lately but had to try and get something.

    Take nothing but photo's - leave nothing but footprints!
