Thumbs up DP Salon Competition #64 - Historic Architecture

DP Salon Competition number 64 - Historic Architecture

Sterling work from Cogito running the last comp (and many thanks for picking my little effort ).

Been having a think and a look through past subjects and I noticed we'd done 'Modern Architecture' so thought it might be interesting to try the other side of the coin, so I give you

Historic Architecture

For the purposes of this competition 'historic' is defined as 'not modern' .

There's lots to choose from, castles are good, as are churches, stately homes and the like. You might be lucky enough to live in one of those lovely villages full of thatched cottages, or a city thats managed to keep some of it's medievel streets and buildings. Old mills, factories, coal mines, the choice is endless.

Deadline for entries is 21.00 BST on Tuesday 26 May 2009

Dem rules again. Please take a moment to read them prior to shooting or uploading your submissions.

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 800 pixels wide so people can see the whole image without scrolling.

2) One entry 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 links to an image held somewhere else.)

4) Comments only 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 curators decision is final.

7) Winners should be offered first refusal to choose the next theme and curate the next salon.

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 the photographer and DPNow will not use them without permission.

The Prize is the choice of either CF 8GB Ultimate or a SDHC 8GB Class 6 memory card.

Regards all and enjoy,

Andy/VS

The once iconic and beautiful Brighton (West) Pier.

This magnificent pier was a target for arson and was burnt out a few years ago. All that remains now is this wire shell.

Here's one from me - that most famous of bell towers in Pisa (ghost-like people are due to incredibly long shutter speed as I was trying to irradicate them!) - jo
