DPNow Salon Competition no. 82 - NATURAL

Thanks once again Stephen for choosing my photo as the winning entry for salon no, 82.

I have been trying to think of a good theme that may be of interest to everyone, and I've come up with:

NATURAL


Please feel free to interpret the theme in any way you wish.

The competition will end on 24th March at Midday GMT

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 witin 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.

Strikers

They call them Grevistes over here, and it is 100% natural. Block the supermarket entrance with cow dung, set up the barbecues, and enjoy!

Re: DPNow Salon Competition no. 82 - NATURAL

In terms of a landscape, there are very few places in the UK that one could called Natural. Most places have in some way been changed in one way or another by Man and therefore are not Natural. With my shot, I'm struggling to see evidence of mans influence on the landscape, so I feel its pretty Natural

Re: DPNow Salon Competition no. 82 - NATURAL

I agree with Stephen, so I am changing my previous picture for this one. It really reflects the most natural nature: rocks, water, reeds, clouds and sky in its original way (I believe so...)

Re: DPNow Salon Competition no. 82 - NATURAL

Some great entries so far. I love the way that there are so many different interpretations of the brief!

Keep 'em coming. I'm on holiday from tomorrow onwards (yay!) but I'll have some Internet access, so I'll make sure I judge promptly.

Re: DPNow Salon Competition no. 82 - NATURAL

We are all taking this very literally so I thought that I would remove my first entry, and submit something that fits the challenge better. It was worth getting up early for.
