Salon 248:- At the beach

As I've just spent a very nice hot week on the south coast lets try this.


Anything which includes a beach.


eg






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, Sunday 26th August UTC

Re: Salon 248:- At the beach

Hi Folks

Glad to see that you are still here. I've been very busy lately packing up the house - finally moving - Have sold the house and will be moving in with relatives in Scotland while we look for a place of our own.

Moving on the 20th so here are two from the archives from the area to which we hope to move.

Re: Salon 248:- At the beach

Having looked through my archives, I've come to realise that nowadays I'm more likely to walk alongside a beach rather than on it!

Re: Salon 248:- At the beach

Thanks to those that entered, I enjoyed all of them.


A very close second was Barr1e's "Beachcombers" but my winner is Garry's picture of the beach at "Bodrum".
I like pictures with the horizon at the top and it sums up a hot beach resort.


Well done and over to you.

Re: Salon 248:- At the beach

Thanks for running this Salon, Andy.

There were some very good entries. So it surprised me to have won this one.

Well done all who entered into the spirit of the Salon.


I'll give the new forum some thought and get back with another one shortly.

Re: Salon 248:- At the beach

Well done Garry and thanks to Andym for running it

I feel sure that I have something in the archive for the new salon - no time to go out for new ones as we have just had an offer on a new house accepted and are making regular runs from Aberdeen to Fife to get things finalised (Moved from London to temp accomodation in Aberdeen last week)

Archive photos are perfectly acceptable, Rab.

Most of my entries are archive, as I don't get so much time as I used too.


Pleased to hear things are going well with the house move.

Re: Salon 248:- At the beach

Good challenge, Andy - it made me trawl through my archives and re-edit two pictures I hadn't been happy with (and hadn't the knowledge to edit at the time!)
A well deserved winner.
