Salon 227 - Best of the best!

Interest in this competition has been waning so we're going to do something different to attract more participants. This will be a "themeless" salon. Your mission is to identify the two photos you consider your all time best. Give it some thought and share the pinnacle of your finely crafted art. I'm looking forward to seeing what you select. Like the song says, "Hit me with your best shot!"

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 20/07/2017

Re: Salon 227 - Best of the best!

115 views to date and no submissions. I was really hoping to see what everyone considered their all time best photos.

Maybe it's time to put the salons to bed.....

Ian, what are your thoughts?

Eye Eye




The Street Singer

Re: Salon 227 - Best of the best!

Still trawling through my images. I think this salon needs an extra week.

Come on guys! Forums are disappearing everywhere. Lets not let it happen here.

Lets see some support.

Ok ! My two.

Re: Salon 227 - Best of the best!

I'm not eligible but I thought I'd throw in a couple myself.

Lake Louise



Tulip Staircase



Almost seems a shame to limit it to two shots.

Re: Salon 227 - Best of the best!

Very difficult choice. Probably not two of my best but certainly two of my favourites.

1. Volga Dawn


2. House in the Clouds

Re: Salon 227 - Best of the best!

Great theme, Pat - very challenging to be honest!

But here's a couple that I'm proud of:

Re: Salon 227 - Best of the best!

These are wonderful images. I kind of wish I had suggested that you post more than two. I can appreciate how difficult it is to narrow the choice.

One more day to submit the Best of the Best!

Re: Salon 227 - Best of the best!

I'll get my wife to help me make a decision around 5 pm (East Coast US time). Still time for more submissions.

Re: Salon 227 - Best of the best!

Tough choices!!

My wife and I both agreed that Garry's fox edges out the other fine entries although Ian's black and white image was a very strong contender.

Re: Salon 227 - Best of the best!

Crikey! Really wasn't expecting that !

There were some very worthy entries in this salon.

Thanks Pat and your wife, for selecting my Fox and for running an interesting salon.

Right. See if I can come up with something worthy of the members.

Be back soon,
