CHAT-A BIT ON THE SIDE-Weekly Comp 5-12/11/2017
« on: November 04, 2017, 12:30:23 PM »
This week's challenge is A BIT ON THE SIDE.

This is the CHAT thread.

The ENTRIES thread is HERE

OK, for a slightly different approach. We've had looking down and looking up, now for taking a sideways look at the world. So something sideways on obviously, or something that makes you take a second look.

No restrictions  on editing. Pictures to be taken preferably between now and Sunday 12th November 2017 23:59, OR  please enter something from your personal archives.

Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23:59pm Monday 13th November 2017

Poll will be up Tuesday 14th November 2017 .

Winner to be announced Saturday 18th November 2017

The Rules for the weekly competition are...

By entering you agree to take responsibility to

Post a topic on the Sunday (or sooner) following your declared win

Create an entries thread

Create a chat thread

Create a poll for that weeks comp and declare the winner on the Saturday

(if for any reason there is a problem and no subject is posted by the winner by Monday night admin will advise second place winner to post the topic asap, do the poll etc)

In case of a tie, the first entry posted wins.

A little hard to grab a shot in overcast and breezy weather conditions this week, but luckily a bee popped in for its 'a bit on the side'  :legit:

I don't know what everyone else has had weather wise this week, but the latter half here has been soggy and dim. Which is a shame, because I didn't find some moderately photogenic pegs until Thursday, and by then  the weather had turned. Took a shot anyway, but had to use a strobe, my rather unpredictable Sigma EF 610 Super: it worked in the end.

I have been struggling with this one. Think I may have an idea, just need to try now. I can tell its Sunday as I'm under a bit of pressure now to get the photo.
May the Force be with you.

I was struggling but on a walk in the local woods I suddenly felt that I was being watched and had a sense of foreboding. Don`t know why...

Like I said, I struggled this week and not sue I have interpreted this one correctly. So I ended up going literally.
May the Force be with you.
