  • 209th Salon "Open but Current".

    Thought of this just now while laying in the bath(not a pretty site).

    As it's holiday time coming and we should have time to get out and take some pictures lets try "open but current". Anything you want but consider your best pictures from over Christmas and New year.
    Doesn't necessarily have to be a Christmas picture though, I'll trust you to be honest that it's taken in the time frame but EXIF would be nice.

    I'll give you a little longer than usual, so it will end at 24:00 on the 2nd of Jan 2017. That's the day before most people go back to work in the UK.


    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.

    Come on lets get snapping.

    Enjoy.
    All the best

                      Thank you for your entries. As usual shame there were not a few more.

                      I love the tonality of Deevee's second picture but my winner is Kurt with his mad fools in the sea. The fella's face in the foreground sums up just how cold it must have been.

                      Well done.

                      Your turn.
                      All the best

                        First thought: "Doh! . . . . Thanks very much for favouring my image . . . now I have to think of a subject!"

                        Seriously, many thanks for running the salon, I echo your thoughts, some good entries, wish there were more.

                        I will try to think up something for a new Salon shortly.

                        Kind regards and a very happy New Year to all.

                        Kurt
