DP Now Salon Competition #101: Getting There

Once again, thanks for the honor (honour?) of choosing me as the winner of #100. While I've seen some familiar names here (from the Four Thirds Users forum, where I am an active member) I've had the pleasure of getting to know new people here. Great photographers all. Not having been here that long, I took a look at all of the themes to date, and I think this is a new one.

So, the new theme is Getting There. Transportation, and people using it is what I'm talking about. Think autos, trains, planes, kids on scooters, sleds, skis, zip lines, whatever. I'll be looking for the most interesting photograph using anything that loosely qualifies as transportation. Mechanical only, foot power is out, but that's about the only rule.

This salon will run for two weeks and close at midnight GMT- Wednesday 9th Feb.

The rules are as follows:

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 foto/photo will then be pasted into the next available space in the salon tread. Please keep photos to a maximum of 800 pixel 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.

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.

11. Don't forget to have FUN.

This photo (time-lapse) of a transit bus in my hometown of Ottawa, Canada, seems to suit well your theme of "Getting There".
