    Default Challenge 131 - Alphabetti Spaghetti

    The title is Alphabetti Spaghetti. That's just a fun title for a challenge where the subject of the photo must be something in the shape of a letter of the alphabet - although not an actual letter itself, e.g. from a sign.

    The previous challenge had a relatively low number of entries, so I am hoping that this will appeal to a good number of you, whether your passion is nature, landscapes, seascapes, buildings, still life, or anything else!

    As a "critique" newbie, I will try to judge on technical merit, composition, etc. but I expect that ultimately it will be something that I simply like, as long as it conveys the subject well, of course.

    Extra points may be gained from using a "difficult" letter (we can probably all find a Y-shaped branch for instance, but some letters may be trickier) or how obscure or unusual your letter-shaped subject is.

    Please abide by the general rules:
    • 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 posted entries this time is Midnight BST on Sunday 9th July. I did consider closing on the 2nd July but that seemed a bit short so now you have nearly four weeks to enter.

    So please, get shooting and I look forward to seeing the entries.
    750D - EF-S 15-85 IS USM - EF-S 55-250 IS STM - EF 50 f/1.8 STM - EF 100-400L IS USM - EF 100 f/2.8 - Kenko HD 1.4x
