June 2020 Photo of the Month Competition

Post by StevenNFFC » Sun Jun 21, 2020 11:42 am

After running a poll to decide the way this months Photo of the Month Competition should be held it has been decided by the votes that for now we will continue with the current coronavirus format of entries being submitted for the month of June of any year except 2020.

Some great news though is that Squadron Prints have kindly decided to continue sponsoring this competition - so good luck to all.

Photography Competition Rules

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 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 July 2020 (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.

It had been noted that the above photo doesn't have a date

Also the lovely Spitfire break has a May not June date so that leaves one remaining picture!

Going back 18 years, for something different and scanned from a 35mm slide.

Taken on a Praktica MTL3 at approximately 9.45 p.m., on 4 June 2002, a RAF Lossiemouth Tornado heads off towards the North Sea, on a night exercise, as the sun sets through thick sea fog.
