    Default Challenge 133 - Pointless

    The title of this challenge Pointless, but it's probably not quite what you think at this stage.

    Hopefully most of you will be familiar with the TV show Pointless. If not, it's a quiz show where the contestants have to guess the most obscure answers given in a survey of 100 people. The questions usually follow one of several formats, one of which would be something like "Name a country beginning with one of the letters U, S or A".

    So, for this latest challenge I would like the subject to be:

    An image of something that begins with one of the letters E, O or S.
    The title of the image should describe the main subject and will be disallowed if it doesn't begin with E, O or S!

    It doesn't matter if it's a still life, of wildlife, transport or landscape (although in this instance, please try to have a main subject - I will accept "sunset" but not "scene"!) - anything you like really, as long as it adheres to the naming rules.

    The previous challenge had a relatively low number of entries, so I hope that this subject is of wide enough scope to encourage some more.

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

    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 3rd Sept. This gives you four weekends, including a bank holiday, so get out there and get shooting!

    I look forward to seeing the entries.

    I had thought of entitling this "End Of Summer" but I thought I might be pushing my luck, so instead this is simply "Ominous"

    I know I'm not allowed to call this "Pointless" but it was my starting point !!

    "Sharpener"
