DPNow Salon Competition 122 - Rejuvenation

The theme for the next Salon is Rejuvenation, which seems appropriate at this time of year with new growth budding all around us and many animals raising their young, or you may have something else - maybe a picture of someone enjoying a beauty treatment for instance. The scope for originality is quite wide.

This Salon will end at Midnight on 7th May, 2012.

The rules, as usual:

1. All photographs are to be uploaded to the photo gallery at http://dpnow.com/galleries/
They can be put in members own gallery if they wish. The resulting link generated for the photo will then be pasted into the next available space in the salon tread. Please keep photos to a maximum of 800 pixel wide so people can see the whole image without scrolling.

2. One entry per user ID only please, which must be the personal work of the entrant.

3. Entries should be "in line" within the thread (not as a links to an image held somewhere else).

4. Comments only on entries are welcome within the salon thread itself.

5. After the close the curator will indicate a winner and a couple of runners up.

6. The curators decision is final.

7. Winners should be offered first refusal to choose the next theme and curate the next salon.

8. If the winner is unable to curate the next salon the current curator may offer that "honour" to any willing volunteer, possibly the entrant in second or third place.

9. These rules are to be copied and pasted with the new theme by the curator at the top of the new salon thread with a finish date and time.

10. As with all photos posted on DPNow, copyright remains with the photographer and DPNow will not use them without permission.

Hope everyone is busy thinking up ideas. There should be plenty of scope for new pictures as it is Spring in the Northern Hemisphere (although it is pouring with rain where I am today) or you may have something suitable in your files.

A great topic John, especially for me. I might have a think about this one.

Re: DPNow Salon Competition 122 - Rejuvenation

Tough but intriguing category. A few years ago I was on the Kona coast of Hawaii and encountered this tree. I couldn't believe it could survive in the harsh salt water environment but seemed to be thriving. When I heard the current contest was Rejuvenation, this shot immediately came to mind.

A great interpretation of the theme.

Re: DPNow Salon Competition 122 - Rejuvenation

A tree I found at a junction of three roads while driving four days ago.
They say;
est. age 1000 years old. damaged by a typhoon 23 years ago. The larger branches were torn off. Four months later they made this surgical treatment. No leaves at this season but it looks alive. Used as a benchmark when surveying the land 400 years ago and probably many people do not want to cut it off.

They showed a pic of the tree taken 78 years ago and I wanted to attach it here for comparison but it looks like it's not alowed to insert a uploaded pic and to attach another pic at the same time.

Looking for a scenery that fits the salon theme is also a fun.

Haha, it looks in a sorry state but seems to be receiving plenty of TLC!
