Salon 222 - Humor

Salon 222 - Humor

The Competition calls for a broad interpretation of the subject of Humor. Pick a couple of photos that make you chuckle. Some examples below

I was walking through Paris when I spotted this clever solution to the lack of parking places.


My wife took this one of me driving a Volvo over a very old and VERY narrow bridge in Scotland.


Okay, I applied a little PhotoShop magic to this one. My wife and I were touring a castle in Passau when I spotted a broom. We transformed the place into Hogwarts.


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 thread. Please keep photos to a maximum of 1000 pixels wide so people can see the whole image without scrolling.

2. As agreed previously, TWO entries maximum 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 link to an image held somewhere else).

4. Comments 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 curator’s decision is final.

7. The winner will be invited 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.

Finish date - Midnight GMT 12/04/2017

Re: Salon 222 - Humor

Sorry to take so long to wrap this up. Somer very good entries. Runner up is Andy's very clever positioning of the subject but the one that had my wife and I laughing out loud was Garry's Bad Landing. Over to you Garry.

Thanks, Pat.

There were some very good entries in this comp.

I will put my thinking head on and start a new salon shortly.
