Dear Forum Members;

On request from Mark, I will be arranging the poll for the challenge.

Unfortunately, he may not be active in the forums due to a very important health problem that requires all his attention and determination to recover fully in a speedy way.

I wish him all my best and hope he comes back to us in his most vigorous, amazing us with his great shots of wildlife, birds, landscape and candids very, very soon.

The challenge will end on August 31st.

Thanks,
Yildiz

Thank you Yildiz - we have been rather absent from these challenges, compared with early days. I think we need more :-)

Don't even mention it, David! : )

You're excused! :D (Kidding) We definitely miss your contributions taken with the many different models of the Alpha cameras though.

I believe you were on the road with some interesting destiations on the World map. We all can think of ideas for new challenges... a thought already crossed my mind. Maybe we can start one soon. Everyone is welcome to start one also. Please don't hesitate to do so. : ))

Congratulations, Pako! : )

Your enigmatic photo won this challenge.

And thanks to everyone who voted for my photo. : ) I'm happy that there was something that you liked in there...

Everyone who contributed to the challenge; thank you all for sharing the lovely photos of many different contexts/concepts.

Now that this challenge is over how about someone taking charge for a new challenge?

Pako ? :D What do you say ?

oh! nothing to say about it: all the honors goes to my friend Antonio, who have one of those faces, and on top of that, who make funny faces when a camera is pointing at him: he thinks that the "happy birthday" face is boring, and he's probably right -Marianne, his fiancee, can't stand that (yet)

Well, the photo was interesting for sure and your friend Antonio is a camera-friendly guy it seems... : )

Actually what I meant to ask in my previous post was, if you'd consider starting the new challenge? :D
