Ignore 35mm equivalence- if the lens is labeled at 25mm or under for a DSLR, it's fine for the contest.

Folks - just go here - start a new thread - enter your submission to the contest. No one but you will be able to see it until the end of the month.

These and other instructions are here.

Dang... recently took the perfect shot for this but it was 26mm.... what a difference a "silly millimeter" can make. LOL

And if anyone can tell me the significance of that quote, the next time we meet, lunch is on me...

That would have been a cigarette add for the "New 100mm" cigarette. Can't remember the brand but I think it might have Marlboro or PAL MAL golds. It was in the late 60's

Benson and Hedges...they were 101mm..."A silly millimeter longer...101"

Funny how those old ads stick in your head.
