    Hexus' First Photographic Challenge: 18 September

    Right here's the plan, a little photo challenge for everyone:

    THE FIRST HEXUS PHOTO-CHALLENGE WILL BE:

    "MY SEPTEMBER 18th"

    You take as many photos as you like on 18th SEPTEMBER, but CHOOSE ONLY ONE that you feel defines 18th September as it was for you.
    No need to give a reason.
    You resize your image to 800 x 600 pixels and less than 200k Maximum - smaller is ok but please no bigger.
    You may not manipulate your images (unless that is the aim of the challenge at the time, in this case it is not), slight lightness/contrast adjustments are permitted, nothing more. This is after all about the picture taking not the fiddling after...
    You Upload your image to a server (there's a list in the sticky at the top of decent ones you can use) and note down the location... which will be something that I (or anyone else) can put image tags around for posting here [if not, then it won't be included 'cause I won't know how to get to it ]
    you then email the location to the following address:

    hexus.creativephotos (at) gmail (dot) com

    with the subject heading "My September 18th"

    then on the 19th I will make a poll thread displaying all the submitted entries.
    this thread will take votes for 5 days.
    the resulting winner will be acknowleged for their tallents and will provide the subject, or date if they chose, for the next mini-challenge.
    if a subject/theme is chosen (e.g. 'action' or 'water') participants are given a week to get the desired shot, if it is a date then its pictures from that day that are to be entered.

    Entries in by 7.30pm 19th September please, the voting will commence around about 9pm after which late entries, I'm afraid, wont get in (unless you've warned me prior). no cheating and taking any on the 19th, thats part of the challenge of selecting a date! you have from midnight to midnight on the 18th, should be enough for anyone!


    [p.s. I will add this to the sticky for general refernce on submissions etc.]

    um...well if we keep drifting the deadline then it'll just be taking the P...
    18th is the sunday of the weekend, 19th is the monday. I will be posting the Poll on monday evening most probably so i guess entries in by then. at the latest. if you miss the deadline - and having warned me previously I'm sure the odd late entry could be slipped in(...can poll threads be edited?)
    right - I'm just editting the start post.

    Sounds cool, I'm probably in for it.. Sunday, day off, will be bored anyway! .

    Can we take photo's of anything? Scenary? Close-ups of nature etc?

    Also, will this be for a collection of photo's or just one?

    Well, I am out for this one, I spent most of the day falling off my new mountain bike! That is very sad for a 27 year old. However it was great fun! Will try to get photos for the next one as now my bottom and thighs are too sore to move anywhere. That will teach me to get on a bike for the first time in nearly 10 years!
    Not around too often!

    damn *insert a million swearwords*

    I went paintballing for the very first time yesterday with 5 close mates, around 40 vs 40. Pictures would have been great as you can still see the fear in people's eyes, and the pure rawness of conflict

    I'm gutted but i didnt get a chance to take any photos today I was planning to spend the hour and a half i was going to have in carlisle station snapping away, but my first train was early meaning i could get the connecting train that i'd have missed otherwise, so i only had 2 mins in the station

    I have 1 poopy photo that i suppose i could enter, but as i said it's only one and it's poopy lol

    I was so up for this challenge too, i knew exactly what i wanted to take photos of GRRRR!
