210th Salon - Borders

The theme for the 210th Salon is "Borders" by which I am hoping to see fences and garden walls rather than international divisions between countries. If you chose to enter the Great Wall of China I hope it will be something different to the usual offerings!

The rules

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.


The closing date is midnight on Sunday 25th of September.

Re: 210th Salon - Borders

Sorry not to see more, but my job is easier. Not easy, though. I will need a little time to sort them out in my own mind.

Re: 210th Salon - Borders

OK, I have decided and my word is final!

I really like a number of images where the border or fence or wall is really secondary to the main subject. So although I like them very much out go the deer and the vines along with the robin and a couple of others. Right very strong contenders are Barrie's barrier, Patmoore's stone wall, Caz's long and winding fence, vegiosage's garden wall and Horatio's home fence (which by the way puts many of the exhibits at the Royal Academy's latest Abstract Expressionism exhibition to shame in my opinion).

I am really torn but I have to come off the fence and my selection for first place is Barrie's barrier with Horacio's home fence a strong second, followed closely Patmoore and Caz in equal third place. Highly Commended goes to all the others.

Thanks for showing me some fine images.

Kurt
