Looks like one of the more extreme pilgrimages.
Interesting entry, Joseph!

This version is definitely a better contender for the theme, kwb.

There you go. An admissible camera at hand.

I tend to forget the camera on my phone as well but if you see the fine work some people create with it, like David for instance, it's certainly worth considering.

Rancor?
What would be the motive.
I'm just keeping the playing field level, as was the intent when the camera list was decided upon a few years ago.
As for falling under the exceptions, I don't think so.
As I understand it, the fixed lens is a fixed focal length as in the fujifilm X100, the ricoh GR or their descendants, not a lens that cannot be removed from the camera.
Now one could use a sony RX1 or a leica Q under these exceptions :)

I know the participation hasn't been abundant lately but let's stick to the list.
I hope you're OK with that, Merv.

That being said, glad to see your entries kwb and David.
Hopefully we'll get lots more.

Great opener, Titia.
Really diverse entries.

Merv-O,

I'm afraid I'll have to be a spoilsport.
Your submissions, right on theme as they are, don't qualify since your camera is definitely using a larger than 1 inch sensor.

The camera doesn't fall under the exceptions either.

Something red

I can't really take credit for coming up with this theme but I saw this on another forum and it had loads of reactions.
It's such a broad theme that anyone can find an image that fits the theme.

The something red doesn't need to be the main subject but it should be fairly obvious.


Rules:

1. Always have fun!

2. Cameras:

No cameras with sensors larger than 1" (some exceptions below).
No large format or camera typically requiring a tripod to use.
No interchangeable lens cameras (some exceptions below).
No 35mm (D)SLRs or any camera weighing over 1kg.

Cameras permitted (cameras listed as acceptable here supersede rules above):
Mobile phones, old and new, iPods, tablets, toy cameras.
Fixed-lens 35mm and smaller-format film and digital cameras (Fuji X100 and GR OK).
Pentax Q, Nikon 1, interchangeable or fixed-lens 110 film.

ANY CAMERA BRAND ALLOWED.

3. Entries will close February 28th, 2019 midnight EDT.

4. Maximum image dimensions are 1024x768 (ish) pixels.

5. List camera brand and model with entry for all to see, and exposure data would be nice.

6. No restrictions on when the entries were taken.

7. Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date and judges the next competition.

8. Enter up to three images, however you may change your entries as many times as you like up to the contest closing date/time.


I'm really looking forward to what you all will come up with.

Some samples to get you going ...

I thought I was going to have an easier job selecting the winner because of the limited number of entries.
I was wrong :)

All fine entries and following the theme!

But since there can only be 1 winner, I had to make a choice anyway.
For me, the winner is Titia with the first entry:



Beautiful composition and great work with balancing the light and dark.
Rich and warm colours that suggest the warmth of these holidays.

Thanks again to all that participated!
I really enjoyed your entries.

Over to you, Titia, for the next instalment of the Point & Shoot competition :)

Thanks for your entries, kwb!
The Japanese is of particular interest to me because I never heard or saw that.

As this contest it coming to its end, so is the year.
So, a Happy New Year to all of you from me as well!

There is still quite some hours left to add your entries here :)

You're probably right, barondla.
It's indeed a lot more quiet in most places I visit - on the internet



Thanks for participating, dlh!
Really fine entries, right on theme.

To my surprise, this theme seems to attract fewer participants.

Agree with Titia. Wonderful patterns, barondla.



I especially like the pebbles, kwb.



Even submerged stones.
A great image, David.
