  • Salon #216 - On the road again...

    OK... so I'm in the process of heading back up north to Canada, from Florida, over the next few days and plan on spending them on the road in a leisurely fashion. While photography is certainly not the purpose of the trip I always have a camera available in the event something should happen to catch my eye. Lets make that the next salon... a photo of something taken from a roadway or on a roadway itself. What's a roadway you ask .... how about anything used to transport people from one spot to another including a paved surface, steel rails, etc. and even a canal path. If you've read this far down already, I'll include a secret... bonus points for including the color "red" somewhere in the photo. Shhhh, don't tell anyone else....

    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 becomes 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.

    Okay - get snapping.

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

    Closing date and time: 24:00 on Sunday, 01 May 2017

                          " Well Shelly... there's been some good ones so far but it's sure slowing down "

                          " I know Pearl... maybe no ones got any more good on the road pictures 'cause they traded their 620's for those micro 4/3rd thingy bobs! "

                            The 216th salon "On the road again " is now over and its time to see who will host the next salon.

                            Andy's RED car couldn't make up its mind if it was RED with white stripes or white with RED stripes and that level of utter confusion means it gets an honorable mention notwithstanding the guy in RED pants (who wears RED pants anyway)...

                            Gillian's evidence of the invisible man was quite revealing, it revealed that she had not READ that she needed RED yet, but that would be corrected in a future entry. I liked this photo....

                            Mikew had RED tail lights and a talking duck ( hey, it worked for Walt Disney )who was looking for a lift. Judging by the flat feet the mallard never got one. Thanks for a great entry, but, no cigar....

                            Gillians second picture made me laugh... hard. Love the RED painted hooves and smug look on the ewe followed by the two hopeful rams headed to the party. Well thought out and well done... you get second for that shot

                            Barrie submitted a wonderful landscape worthy of framing, I really liked this shot. It was ruined by some strange RED creature with big eyes meandering across the foreground. Should have removed that guy in post Barrie, but, great try...

                            Andy's second shot was a well thought out environmentally sensitive seaside landscape portraying the effects of global warming, which causes rising water levels and dangers to the future of the planet. Extremely well portrayed but obviously the wrong competition, regardless of the RED roof...

                            Rudolf had two beautiful photos. The first was an idyllic farm scene with rolled hay bales labelled somewhere in France, which I'm sure was a mistake on his part as I've seen lots of landscapes like this in Kansas...

                            And the second was a sensitive portrayal of a reminder to the tragedy and utter futility of war. I liked the shot and it was the only one which portrayed something taken from a road without actually showing the road itself as a component of the composition. Congratulations, third place for this ...

                            Kurt's first photo is either a wonderful testament to true love lost on the cobble stones of our life represented by the shattered remains of our heart on a cold and wet day... or ... something RED on a road to meet the requirements of the competition. As no mention is given, and it is Kurt, probably the second...

                            And nice try entering a black and white with a title I could read as RED bike but I'm on to you, those bikes were not RED at all. Nice shot though and I'm a sucker for a pretty girl so if there was a fourth in this salon you would have it....

                            And I missed DeeVee... or should I say I left the winner to the last. DeeVee submitted two beautiful and richly coloured photos ( with RED ), one an evidentiary photo of a car following a truck to closely on the highway which is obviously intended to be sent to the Highway Patrol for enforcement follow up and the winner...

                            A photo of the Marvel Comics hero " The Flash " headed home along the highway.

                            Well done DeeVee... a beautiful piece of art well thought out and nicely executed. You get to pick the category and run the next 217th salon.
