The **200th** Salon is Arches



The 200th Salon is Arches.

Man-made or natural, the choice is yours. Two entries each so I would like to see some variety. Monochrome is welcome!

This salon will end midnight Tuesday 26th of July.

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 two entries 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!

Happy Snapping

Kurt

Re: The **200th** Salon is Arches

Thought I'd try something a little different.

Lack of arches.



My feet are flat as a pancake. Not a pretty site.

I'll try and find something a bit more traditional for my second.

Arch enemies--centipede vs. spider:


A fisheye lens makes anything into an arch.

Thanks for the very interesting and varied entries so far. I will be busy over the next week and may not have time to view new entries but I hope for a good batch to look at when I get time. Start loading them now!
