190th FTU Salon - Power

The 190th FTU salon theme is "Power".

There should be plenty of scope for interpreting this theme, from a line of electricity pylons leading into the distance to a racing car to a weightlifter. See how many different interpretations you can come up with.

This salon will end midnight Friday 29th of January 2016.

Here's what you do:

1. Either take a picture that matches the nominated theme or select one from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the picture in order to enter it.

2. Upload your entry to your FTU user gallery (all entries must be present in an FTU gallery, which you automatically get if you are registered on the FTU forum), so if you aren't registered, you will need to if you would like to join the fun!)

3. Use the gallery IMG code or the 'Post New Thread' Advanced Mode 'My Pics' facility to display your picture in a response to this message. If you are having trouble with this, post a message for some help here and we'll gladly assist. It become easy after a while!

4. Only one entry per salon, please. If you want to withdraw an entry and replace it with another, that's OK, but you must make it clear in the post containing your replacement picture that this is what you intend doing.

5. The decision of the curator at the end of the two weeks is final - don't give him or her a hard time about it; this is just a friendly photo challenge, after all!

6. The person who submitted the chosen picture will assume the responsibility of curator and, as soon as possible, post a message starting a new thread in the FTU Salon board, with details of the new theme. That opening message must include a copy of these instructions, which also double as the rules.

7. The curator can't enter his or her own salon!

Good Luck!

John

Power is strength, resilience, determination and blinding speed... but, then again, its all relative...

...and there I was thinking it was two entries - sorry John.

The grandson won - he is always so positive in all he does - just like grandma!

(Hope the XRAY got a sharp pic.)

It's two entries for the DPnow Salon and I think it would be a good idea to change the rules to allow this here. I'll start a new thread for discussion.
