Challenge # 193 - One of These Things...
Posted By: tessfully, 01-26-2012, 08:58 PM

Thanks to Jeff for last weeks fun competition and for the honour of hosting this one


Challenge # 193 -One of these things is not like the other.... or .... standing out from the crowd!


Here are a couple of photos for inspiration!















This competition is open from now until midnight EST on Thursday February 2, 2012


Have fun!


The fine print....
1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread, and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose 1 of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus a day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax (or Samsung DSLR) camera will do.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

Tess was called away on a family emergency, and has no access to the internet. I'll volunteer to judge, or you can pick someone else, or she should be home in a few days. A little direction would be appreciated.

Happy to wait and hope everything's ok with Tess! But if everyone else prefers to find out about the winner earlier I'm ok with that too. Please pass on our thoughts to her - hope it's all ok at home!
