9th Photo Assignment "Motion", Discuss and enter here

This is the 9th photo assignment, strictly for fun.

Everyone is welcome to have a go. No need for expensive cameras or professional skills.

You just need to take a photo with a theme which fits the following words:

Motion

Once you have a photo, don't post it up. Send dod or danrok a private message and they will give you an email address and then you can email it to them. I don't want to post their email addresses here because it will attract spam.

Please, take a fresh photo not one you already have.

Submissions need to be sent in by 23rd April 2006.

Staff will post up all entries after that time and then members can vote for their favorite using a poll. The winner gets to pick a word for the next assignment. Kaitain chose the word this time round.

Any questions, just post them up!

Good luck!

Guidelines for editing:

You may crop your photo.
You can adjust brightness, contrast and colour balance.
You can convert to monochrome, i.e. black and white, etc.
You can add a plain solid border.
Minor touch-ups are OK, e.g. removal of dead pixels, small imperfections like dust., sharpening, etc.
No clever or fancy photo editing this time, please. Just basic stuff.

No restrictions on what camera, lens or lighting you use. Be as creative as you like with the camera!

I haven't had any time at all this last couple of months

If you can accept entries until April 10th that'd be good for me, otherwise let it die. Is there still an interest in these photo comps from other users?

I was thinking of giving it a rest and then start again using this theme.

I suspect the foul weather most of us have at this time of year may put a dampner on things.

Perhaps start it again commencing on the Easter break coming up when people have more time to spare?
