Challenge #146 Sunsets

Challenge #144 - Sunsets

I had planned on selecting "Looking Up" but discovered that it's been used twice before. I didn't see any earlier themes involving sunsets but perhaps I missed it. I love seeing good examples. In any event, there's your challenge. The sun can put on spectacular displays all over the globe. Let's see your best effort.



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 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 salon competition ends at midnight on Sunday 10th August 2013.

Re: Challenge #146 Sunsets

Hi patmoore,

I have just uploaded a sunset scene to my gallery. I would like it to be entered for the competition. How is that achieved do I just leave it to you, or do I need to do something.

Bill

Hi Bill,

Glo to the image in your gallery and then highlight the code in the box below. See example:



Copy that code (CTRL/ C). Then when posting your entry on the contest page simply Paste it (CTRL/V). Good luck. Looking forward to seeing your entry!

We never have sun sets here, it just gets dark.

Re: Challenge #146 Sunsets

Judging this was tough!

The top two were Autumn's and AndyM's with a very slight edge to Autumn for creativity.

Okay, Autumn, it's your turn to challenge us.
