Salon 224: Chimney

It's easy, chimneys or chimney.


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 14/05/2017

Re: Salon 224: Chimney

I have one I'm trying to find. In the meantime, here's a weak effort. This is the "chimney" at our ski club's lodge. Inside the room is a fireplace with a gas fire.

Re: Salon 224: Chimney

Looking back through my photos, I don't seem to have many chimneys (or I haven't tagged them!)

This is the old chimney near the sewage works in Northampton - not sure if it's connected, though!

Re: Salon 224: Chimney

My second effort includes several chimneys, but they're old and reflected in a new building. Taken in Milton Keynes

Re: Salon 224: Chimney

Thanks for your efforts, Its a real shame that the Salon seems to have almost died. The new layout of the front page makes it less noticeable, too. Especially as so little changes at the top of the page. Maybe visitors can't be bothered to scroll down. - Moan over.

The winner after much deliberation is the very first entry: Rodbender's gritty smoke-filled image takes the crown.

Kind regards, Kurt

Re: Salon 224: Chimney

Thank You Kurt for selecting my image. It was one of 52 I took for a "One a week" challenge. Maybe we could get a similar challenge running here. All you do is choose a subject and then post one image a week for a year. On my own web site I had a member choose to post one image a day. Yes a total of 365 images in that year. Great fun.

I will put some thought into selecting a new theme for the next salon and get back soon.

Re: Salon 224: Chimney

Re Rod's idea for a 52 challenge (I've tried a 365 a couple of times, didn't manage to keep it up!)

I'm in some Flickr groups that do a daily challenge, but only twice a year - April and October. You can choose a theme, or just wing it. Here's a link to my latest set (April 2017) https://flic.kr/s/aHskS923FZ

There's also a themed challenge - 117 in 2017, some themes are date specific and some are generic (and some are weird). But if you're a Flickr member, let me know and I'll point you in the direction because they're all run by friends.
