Salon 246 Open Salon.

Being that the Salon has shown less interest lately.

I thought I would be non specific, in having an open Salon.

Anything goes. New or archives photos.

So I am hoping to see lots of entries.
Come on guys. Lets keep this going please.


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.

Closing date Midnight, Saturday 21st July (UK time)


Thank you all

Re: Salon 246 Open Salon.

I decided to pick my favourites from the last month - first is a gazania I saw in the local park. Freshly planted, I took out the bare earth background



Entry 2: last weekend I was the main shooter at a Motorcycle Meet. Fisheye shot

Re: Salon 246 Open Salon.

Open Salon...………..

Well, well. After a very slow start, and me thinking it was going to be easy for me to choose.
We had some excellent images presented, and my job suddenly became very difficult. In fact. Most of these were worthy of winning this comp for one reason or another.

But after studying these photos, I have decided that Patmoore and Tulip Staircase wins.



Everyone else is a close second.

Thanks all for making the competition such a high standard.

Well done Pat. Over to you.

Re: Salon 246 Open Salon.

Thanks Garry! That's a pleasant surprise considering the superb images everyone posted.

I've created a new salon devoted to Bridges. I'm hoping for a large number of submissions.
