Salon 257 Crowd

A crowd of virtually anything from people to what ever comes to mind. Best of luck.

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.


The deadline for entries is Midnight Tuesday 5th February 2019, GMT.

I have a couple of interpretations and here is the first:

And the second is a little more abstract:

Re: Salon 257 Crowd

You'd guess that mine would be musical... my first entry is the crowd in front of the second stage at Hard Rock Hell last November: Voodoo Blood were performing and their vocalist had asked all the crowd to sit down

Re: Salon 257 Crowd

As an event photographer, I have lots of pictures of people in crowds - mostly at concerts and festivals, but other events too.

My second entry is from a fundraising event for a neuroblastoma charity: originally a fundraiser to send the boy for further treatment in the US, but unfortunately he didn't survive long enough to travel. We held the Guinness World Record for the most people in one place wearing onesies for about 3 months - there were about 700 of us at Milton Keynes football stadium, and this was the dove release after the record had been set. Their are pictures of me (somewhere) wearing a onesie, but I'd rather not share them!

Re: Salon 257 Crowd

Thank you, Gez

Well done Ian. Over to you.
