MIDNIGHT 30TH SEPTEMBER 2009 - SUBMISSIONS CLOSED!

VOTE FOR YOUR FAVOURITE!

POLLS CLOOSE AT MIDNIGHT 21ST OCTOBER!


Hi everyone! Welcome to September's Assignment!

The theme for this month is "Goodbye", as suggested by Palakaboy who won the July 2009 competition. Be sure to read this whole message for the rules.

In Palakaboy's own words:

"My theme for September is 'Goodbye'. Standard rules apply, but the only thing I'd like to add is the absence of an explanation. So NO STORY and NO EXPLANATION please!

The reason I don't want an explanation is because I want the pictures to speak for themselves."

The rules!

1: You can only submit one image and it has to be taken during September 2009. Photos taken earlier will be disqualified!

2: All images submitted must be no more than 500 pixels on their longest side, although you can include a link to a full resolution version if you like. Flickr users must link back to the original version to comply with its latest rules.

As always, please exercise good judgement on what is suitable for the forum. See the Forum Rules for guides.

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 like, for example, any special exposure or lighting setup.

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:

Camera Model:
Lens and focal length:
Aperture:
Shutter Speed:
Sensitivity:
Post processing:

Submissions will close at midnight GMT on 30th September 2009. The final poll will follow.

Please remember this thread is for submissions only. If you'd like to comment on any of the submissions or ask any questions, please do so in the September 2009 Comments and Questions thread!

Thanks and good luck!

Gordon
