August 2018 Photo of the Month Competition

Post by Zymurgy661 » Tue Aug 07, 2018 4:38 pm

Photography Competition Rules

IMPORTANT - Please note the change to Rule 2. ALL submitted entries must have the date taken clearly detailed in the text of your post. Failure to do this will result in the image not being submitted for voting. Reminders will not be issued if you forget!

1. Only one entry per user, unless posting on behalf of another person who is unable to do so themselves (children for example). If this is the case, please state so on your entry.
2. The photograph must have been taken during the month and year in question. The date the photo was taken MUST be included in the post.
3. The photo can be of any subject you like, as long as there is some military aviation connection.
4. The image can be photo-shopped to some extent, levels changes, cropping, sharpening etc. are all acceptable. The photograph must retain it’s initial subject though, don’t make it something it’s not (cutting and pasting the moon into the shot, for example). HDR images are not acceptable. If you are unsure, please PM a moderator.
5. The competition will remain open until 23.59 on the 1st September 2018 (UK time), to enable anyone with last minute entries some breathing space
6. The voting will be carried out by you, the members of FC, by a poll which will be created at the closing of the competition.
7. Moderators/Administrators will not be exempt from the competition, but cannot vote for their own entry.
8. The decision of the moderating team is final.
9. All images must be posted in line with the usual FC posting rules
10. The rules may be subject to change, and these will be posted on this thread.
11. Please do not comment on entries other than your own.

If you can keep your head whilst all around are losing theirs, you have probably completely misread the situation!!

'Mud Hen' In the flare over the 24 piano keys at Lakenheath 01/08.Best of luck to everyone.If you view this image on Flickr it says Jan 2018.This is because I still haven't set the date/time on my newly acquired D7200.
Just for proof you will see pics from the same day with my D600 with correct date.Also some of the AV F-16s that I took on the D7200 are therefore dated Jan 2018.The fact that they were not at Lakenheath at the time proves my inocence.
Sorry for any confusion,Jay.

Flyingslug...Isn't your photo from June? Couple months out of date lol... :halo: :lol:

Edit...Exif Data shows 30th June 2012!! :S :S :S

& Also, Phantom6 is well out of date too...Not being a kn*b or a snitch, I'm just trying to make this competition fair for everyone entering, and if people can't be bothered to chose a picture from the right month, let alone the right year, how is it fair for everyone? :Oops:
