  • 208th FTU Salon Competition theme: Winter in Wonderland

    This 2-week's theme will be:

    Winter in Wonderland
    Define your own Wonderland, could be home, could be a place you'd rather be, or just an imaginary place
    Winter is cold, damp, miserable, mystical, romantic, depending on your mood
    So lots of flexibilty, choices, inspirations

    The Salon will end at approximately 2 weeks from now, around midnight PST on Dec 14, 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 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!

    8. You can post two pictures.

    Let see what you can come up with.

    Have fun
    Cheers,

      If you're a Downey Woodpecker, winter in wonderland could be as close as the suet block another foot up the tree...

              Well, it doesn't look like we'll get any winter weather around me before this salon ends, so here are two from the archives.

                      Love winter scenes
                      Too bad we didn't have more entries
                      Was torn between Blende 8 and AndyM
                      Those epitomize winter coldness and beauty
                      I'm a sucker for BW and AndyM' s looks almost mono to me
                      Its simplicity of composition wins me over that of Blende8
                      So AndyM, congrats to you and do take this over for the Holidays
                      Cheers,

                        Thanks. It looks B/W but that was just the weather

                        I'll think of something over the next couple of days if I can tear myself away from my new E-M1 mkii.
                        All the best
