    December 2011: CaptainsVoyage Forum Monthly Digital Photo Competition.

    December 2011: CaptainsVoyage Forum Monthly Digital Photo Competition.

    Is there a time for a quick competition this month as well?

    Since it's posted a little later than usual, and since I'll be away working the LONG shift during Christmas and New Year, the deadline has also been pushed back.

    Deadline for entries to be added:

    January 5th 2012.


    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.

    December 2011 THEME: ....

    (since the past month was letter G=Grafitti, this month would be something with H):

    The theme for the month of December is Holidays / Holiday Spirit.


    ***

    We repeat the usual 4 standard rules of engagement:

    1/ A maximum of 3 entries per user, within this months theme.

    2/ Number your images consequently starting at DEC-001, then DEC-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 January 5th!

    Need some inspiration? Make an online search via sites such as for example google, photobucket or/and flickr to see if you can find any tips!

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

          By orders from a supreme officer, here's two christmas decorated car ferries in winter lay-up in Kristiansund.

          DEC-002 Christmas ferries


          EDIT: After last nights 90+ knots winds, only 1/4 of the outer ferrys christmas-lights is left.

                    I feel really stupid now! When the theme was any holidays or holiday spirit - I immediately thought of being cold, wet, surrounded by ships and very, very happy during a Finnmarken summer - all of the rest of you thought about Christmas holidays!! Probably says something terrible about me - will have to find a winter holiday one to add to redeem myself. Merry Christmas!!

                        But Mark, the theme was Holidays/Holiday Spirit - any holiday, any time. You're OK, pal.

                              I haven't any photo good enough, anyway, and therefore hadn't intended entering. I was just "ordered" to put the heart in.
