Pentax Photo Contest #001: Around The House
Posted By: djb47, 04-29-2020, 12:43 PM

As most of the world is in isolation at home, it's a good time to pickup the camera and snap a few photos. For this week's contest simply look for objects In and around your home or garden that have beautifully defined natural detail. Any subject is acceptable. Be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme.

The weekly Pentax Photo Contest is similar to the Weekly Challenge with a few exceptions. Participants get to vote on their favorite photo. To vote, one simply posts their choice for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. Places are determined by the number of overall points each photo receives. You do not need to enter to vote, anyone can vote. Every week, the winner chooses a new theme, hosts the challenge for the following week and tallies the points to determine the next winner/host.

Points will be:
3 for 1st place
2 for 2nd place
1 for 3rd place.

Post until Tuesday at 12 noon GMT, May 5, 2020
Voting starts Tuesday at 12 noon GMT, May 5, 2020
Vote until Thursday noon GMT, May 7, 2020

*The host running this week's contest breaks any tie.
*New Topic ... As soon as possible after winning.
*Posting Starts ... Right after topic is announced.
*Winners Announcement ... As soon as possible after voting closes.
*Winner chooses new contest topic and starts the next challenge NLT Fri.

The Rules:

Voting is over. Not the best showing for a challenge debut.



The results are:
1st -- Noel and Ramsey each with 3 pts
2nd -- Kerrodown, Deep Throb and djb27 each with 2 pts.

Since the host gets to break the ties I'll go with Noel as the winner.


Thanks for participating all. Hopefully Noel can motivate some more to participate with his next challenge.

It's all yours Noel.
