Salon 243 'One Colour'

One photo in the last salon gave me the idea for this Salon - Garry's Hot Afternoon.
I'm not looking for black and white but a picture that is predominantly shades of one colour, nor am I looking for 'selective' colour filtering - just as it came off the camera with minimal tweaking.

My example: The Tongariro volcanoes in New Zealand from the north shore of Lake Taupo...



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, 25th of May 2018 (UK time)

Re: Salon 243 'One Colour'

I'm away visiting family for the next few days - with little or no internet connection so am looking forward to seeing more entries when I return...

Liking what I see so far....

Not to be considered as an entry please. However, I wanted to share in the amusement.

Re: Salon 243 'One Colour'

Possibly the task was a tad tricky but the few entries there were were all good in their own ways. I confess I expected that they would all be morning / evening lanscapes / sunsets but you all surprsed me.

After much deliberation the honours go to Ron's green lizard - all the rest come second

Re: Salon 243 'One Colour'

Thanks Rab, quite a surprise as I also thought the entries would be along the lines that you described. I was unsure if my attempt fitted the theme. You have caught me completely unprepared so will have to take a bit of time to think of something for the next salon. Watch this space.

Thanks for running this interesting Salon, Rab.
It's a pity more didn't join us.

Well done Ron. A good win.
