MARCH 21ST - As there haven't been any new votes and as I am leaving for London early tomorrow, I will close the poll early and warmly congratulate our winner this month: Lensbaby
MARCH 1ST - Submissions are now closed, and it's time for you all to pick your favorite entry!
IMPORTANT NOTICE: During the transition to new forum software, some of the poll options got removed, as kindly pointed out by Ivan Manko. In trying to resolve this issue, all existing votes got removed. If you have already voted, I am counting on your honesty not to vote again, unless you previously voted for djfsolo (who was most affected by the software change, sorry for that djfsolo). If you haven't voted yet, please do so, and I will add the new votes to the previous votes.
Here are the votes that were previously submitted:
Hi everyone! Welcome to February's Assignment!
The theme for this month is "Wings", as suggested by Bob Andersson who won the December 2011 competition. Be sure to read the whole post for the rules.
In Bob's own words:
"It's time to decide on February's subject. Some of the old-timers here might remember that I was an airline pilot for some thirty years so my choice should be no surprise.
February's subject is "Wings". That could be anything from insects to birds to aircraft - if it has wings and we can see 'em then it's fair game. Everyone should be able to find a suitable subject so the real challenge will be getting that jaw-dropping shot that makes us all go "Wow". Post-processing is allowed. Good luck."

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:
