Fortnightly Salon Competition No.40 - Sea, Land & Sky

Apologies for the delay in getting the new theme put up, just grabbing some time now whilst its quiet.

I'm a sucker for coastal scenery and landscapes so the theme for this Salon is:-

Sea, Land & Sky

Now I see plenty of potential here for everyone but you can interpret it as you will. I'd really like to see something creative and imaginative though and will be using that as a criteria when it comes to judging the winner. So think carefully about what will make yours stand out from the others and raise it above the level of the mundane

The closing date for entries will be noon GMT on 17th May

The Rules:

1) All photographs are to be uploaded to the photo gallery at http://dpnow.com/galleries/
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 Max 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, any external links or photos held anywhere other than the Galleries will be deleted.)

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 curator's 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 a new theme by the new 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.

Re: Fortnightly Salon Competition No.40 - Sea, Land & Sky

Great stuff Mike, all credit to you for doing something new. For me this is typical of Cornish coastal scenery, and it looks like you may have had some of the better weather today. Its rained nearly all day ooop north

Super light and sky Pol. The manmade landscape is no less effective in such situations and evokes the British seaside feel, finished off in this case by the flag, nice touch.
