    February 2010: CaptainsVoyage Forum Monthly Digital Photo Competition.

    February 2010: CaptainsVoyage Forum Monthly Digital Photo Competition.

    A brand new digital photo competition will now be opened for the next month, February 2010. As usual, we strongly urge all participants to use their special eye and try thinking "out of the box" to make that very special image.

    You can use whatever settings you like, whatever equipment you decide (even a Nikon ... ), whatever photo-editing program you choose, to make your image an award winning image.

    We kindly ask you not to just throw in any random image, but instead put some thought into it, and place only your very best shot(s) within the theme.

    In February last year, the theme was red, so this year, we pick a new color.

    February 2010 THEME: "Color Blue".

    ***

    We repeat the usual 4 standard rules of engagement (apart from that we have now set a maximum of 3 images per user):

    1/ A maximum of 3 entries per user.

    2/ Number your images consequently starting at FEB-001, then FEB-002 and so on (we kindly ask you to please make sure you enter the correct number as it makes it so much easier for me at month's end... )

    3/ Find an appropriate but short title for your image (makes it easier to remember when we are going to cast a vote).

    4/ The image must naturally be taken be yourself.

    Competition closes on February 25th!


    Need some inspiration? Make an online search via google, photobucket or flickr to see if you can find any tips!

    .... and yes, GOOD LUCK to all participants!

        Red was the theme February last year... so I thought we should change it for something new....

        Blue is the new red, I've heard...

            By request and long consideration, giving everyone a fair chance, and to avoid anyone posting 30 images amongst 32 entries.

            Also, with a limit on number of entries, we will have to be more selective in finding our 3 best images to enter.

              First of all: Not that we need it in here, but I tend to agree...., because then we will be just a little more critical to what images we post ourselves, and that way we get even more great images, if that is possible

              Then again, Jan-Olav might have another reason for the limit

                You beat me to it.. by seconds... and you expressed one of my concerns very well! We think alike.

                    on the other end,when you look the last 5 months of the competitions you wil see that there in each month maybe 8 compettators are sending in and they are every month the same.
                    now you have voters but maybe not that many pics.
                    i hope i am wrong
                    best regards Thijs

                      I've sent out an e-mail inviting all members to participate, so hopefully, it'll also have some effect.

                      (Just realized I forgot to include a link in the e-mail I sent out to all members.. )

                          Noel, just how perfect was your timing in taking that photograph! Ideal entry for this months competition.
                          Your charts, your radar, your eyes and ears - if all 4 agree, you may proceed with caution.

                            Very nice Noel: fantastic start of what can possibly an exiting month. Love the blurred background and the sharpness of your entry! Brilliant.

                              The limit of 3 entries pr person is probably a good idea if you manage to keep enough contributors.

                              I'll throw this in as a start and save my two other entries for later in the month. Will be back in Bangkok next week and hoping to have enough free time for some shooting. Will try to keep the Blue theme in mind.
