Now get voting!
Hello everyone, welcome to March's Assignment!
The theme for this month is suggested by Big Pix, who won the January 2008 competition. In his own words:
"the challenge for March will be ....... "TIME"....... and your submitted image must be shot in the month of March 2008, along with a few words about your submitted image if possible but not necessary, just trying to make it interesting
here are some hints, a moment in time, a place in time, aged with time, space and time....... now, there is enough to get you thinking"
So the photo you submit should be taken during the month of the actual assignment - ie during March 2008. You're also only allowed to submit one image, and you can't change you mind once it's posted!
As always, please exercise good judgement on what is suitable for the forum.
Please include a sentence or two with your photo describing what you were trying to achieve and if there were any particular challenges in doing so.
We're all enthusiasts here, so it's also great to see what equipment you used and the settings too. So please also include the following:
Lens and focal length:
Submissions will close at midnight GMT on 31 March 2008. The final poll will follow.
Please remember this thread is for submissions only and that posted images should be around 500 pixels on their longest dimension. If you'd like to comment on any of the submissions or ask any questions, please do so in the March 2008 comments
Thanks and good luck!
