  • 210th Salon: Arches

    Underneath the Arches . . . or beside them, through them, over them; man-made or natural - even Durdle Door! Its your choice. There are plenty of them out there.

    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 yourself and don't take it too seriously its supposed to be fun.

    Closing date and time: January 19, Midnight.

                          Thanks for these fine entries. All worthwhile images and I have enjoyed perusing them.

                          It is very difficult to chose a winner. I really liked Hal's (hschnee) take on the theme, but I ruled them out of the top spot because the arch was not quite completed.

                          However, in the end, as I am a mug for monochrome and architecture I had to select Stephen's (Snibbo) late entry.

                          Over to you Stephen.

                              Thanks Kurt and thanks to everyone who entered.

                              I will take a look at the list of past Salons and come up with a theme for the 211th salon within the next couple of days.

                              Thanks again Kurt for organising the salon.
                              Regards,
