      Good job last month. Things went well and I have a new topic on my IM today.

      As a reminder, please do not enter the contest unless you have an idea for a topic next month. Many winners have said "I didnt expect to win so I'm not sure what I should do for a topic." Have it in your head already or DO NOT enter the contest because if you win you MUST come up with something.

      I dont have the time (especially during the summer) to watch over or organize this, however, I will post the sticky for each assignment. You guys must self regulate and come up with your own ideas.

      At the end of the month, someone else will need to take the initiative and choose the new topic and let me know via IM or email (jimmy@speedarena.com) and I will update the assignment thread.

      Please note that from March till October I am extremely busy and travel a lot so there may be times where I will not be able to hold perfectly to the schedule getting things posted, please bear with me, I'll do my best.

      If this becomes a problem, or too much babysitting is involved, I'll unsticky it and you guys will be on your own. Please report any problems or issues directly to me, keep all assignment related questions to the person in charge that month.

      Rules

      1. Photo must be taken DURING the month of the assignment. Please keep exif intact so that others can see it.

      2. Basic Photoshop/editing is allowed (levels, exposure, saturation, sharpening, etc), but no complete altering of the photo/subject, as in, no fake blurs, no HDR, no dropping one subject into a different background, that kind of stuff. Converting to B&W and selective color is ok.

      3. NEW RULE - No borders or frames on the photos. This tends to detract from or unfairly add to a photo and the judging is on the photo itself, not how nicely you can present it.

      4. No nudity, illegal activity, implied illegal activity, or anything else that would normally not be allowed in this forum should be posted.

      5. Post entries in this thread, do not make a separate thread for each entry. You have until midnight PST on Friday June 22nd to post your entry.

      6. The assignment thread is for posting photos ONLY, no discussion until voting starts and all ideas/questions should be directed to the person who is in charge of the assignment that month.

      7. NEW info - On the 22nd of June, use THIS thread to post critiques and who you think the winner should be. Until a better alternative is found, the person in charge of the month will tally the votes and declare a winner. Any entry deemed NOT on topic may be left out of the poll at the discretion of person in charge of month. Voting will last till the last day of the month when a winner will be chosen and the new assignment will start. So you should be ready to take over for the next month and have a topic in mind that you can send to me immediately.

      Everyone is encouraged to participate regardless of skill level. With or without an SLR. It will help you grow as a photographer to see how others perspectives on a similar subject.


      Person in charge for the month, foolery.

      This months subject:

      Landscapes

      Broad topic, do what you will with it. This could take many forms, doesnt have to be country or trees. Your own creativity is the only limit. have fun!

      this is just like the new rule that they're having at Waterfest this year that you're not allowed to detail your car if you're showing it. you know, since judging is on the car itself and not how nicely you can present it.

      The people around here tuck their teeshirts into their jeans. So a sense of humor will not be welcomed.

      The best I could do. I just have a Canon P&S, but at least I'll submit.

      1. Photo must be taken DURING the month of the assignment.

      Seems singular to me.

      Ok everyone. I'm not sure where foolery is so let's get things started.

      - Since it's past the 22nd, NO MORE SUBMISSIONS. The floor is now open for discussion and voting.

      - Let's do this like last month and vote within THIS thread. Just write your votes in and make sure they are bold so they are easy to tally up.

      My vote goes for myself, Calinada. I was going to vote for Code-7 because of his great composition and I tend to like more traditional landscapes like that, but the lighting left me wanting more, like some sun peaking through the clouds onto the trees in the foreground or something.

      Great photos this month from everyone. Here are a few of my favorites.

      stkshftgti - Great shot.. I love the contrast in the water and the colors of the mountains

      Calinada - I really like this shot, but I probably would have cropped a little of the sky out. Still a great shot though

      farfrompukin - All the lights can get a little distracting, but good shot

      friedguy - I absolutely love this shot. Seeing it really puts me there in the moment.

      Code7 - Great landscape shot with really good colors and the sky makes the picture look even more luminous.

      I thought all the submissions were great. My vote goes for friedguy
