    Re: The e-group Bank Holiday Challenge thread - entries here

    Due to the wet conditions encountered today - I may, subject to downloading my last image taken, meet the ten mark. See you later.

      Just for fun here's an entry - "Rinse Cycle"

      1 - The Bank Holiday Weather



      2 - Something you did not expect to see!
      Sadly, damp washing is a likely event in the UK

      3 - Yellow
      Well there's a bit of yellow in the above pic

      6 - 04:00 in the morning!
      It was hung up yesterday, so it was there at 4am

      ...

      Tie-breaker:
      "I chose Olympus because... I don't have to carry a mountain!"

        how do i resize to 800x600 and end up with exif and a small file size
        Use IMAGE SIZE then FILE / SAVE AS when you save as a JPEG you get a slider coming up that allows you to alter the amount of compression. Set this to about 5 and you will get a small file size and decent quality.

            Well, I managed to get all 10, but only just - in terms of accuracy to the category and quality of image!!

            1 - Bank Holiday Weather: Spotted the rain running off a distant farm gate... thought... "Hmmm, that'd be a little different for the challenge..."


            2 - Something you did not expect to see!: Heather and a Hawk making direct eye contact!


            3 - Yellow: The only thing yellow I spotted all weekend!


            4 - Laughing/Enjoyment: Heather and her friend Seren (who stayed over) had a wonderful time together this weekend: I thought this image made them look 'sisterly' - Seren was flicking Heathers nose! they were in stitches


            5 - It's dinner time!: It's the European Eagle Owl again this time about to have dinner and devour a chick!


            6 - 04:00 in the morning!: A tricky category... and a poor entry from me to boot... Ho-hum, at least I managed to get up at this unearthly hour and see who else was online at 04:00 in the morning!! Who sets these challenges eh!!


            7 - A Clock Tower: Well... the weather just didn't hold up did it? So, here's three clock towers I can see from my bedroom window - thank goodness for the Bigma coupled with the Oly EC14...!


            8 - Something cute!: Well... I think they are cute... and added some vignetting to enhance the effect and make the central one stand out more!


            9 - A Candid shot of someone, anyone but this must be... outside: Forgot I needed this one, so when it was too late I looked at the shots I took when at the Welsh HAwking Center yesterday, and thankfully I found one, but another very poor entry! At least the horse is having a nose!


            10 - Music: Heather at the piano!


            Well, there's mine - looking forward to seeing everyone else's entries.

                  The Bank Holiday Weather.
                  Another Bank Holiday down the drain.


                  Something I did not expect to see.
                  A sports bike that had been dumped.


                  Yellow.
                  My model car


                  Laughing/Enjoyment.
                  With a touch of artistic flair


                  It's Dinner Time.
                  Added prawns and pineapple


                  Four In The Morning
                  Radio alarm clock


                  A Clock Tower.
                  Local church tower


                  Something Cute.
                  Furby


                  A Candid Shot.
                  What else can you do when it's wet?


                  Music.
                  Broken string


                  It certainly filled this weekend's gaps.

                  Regards and thanks for the fun. Barr1e

                      I'm glad to say I happened to take a few shots yesterday that fall into the categories. Anyway here are my 10 shots.

                                Here we go, a weekend in the hills that kind of hits the spots:

                                Sheltering for lunch (weather):

                                Building a shelter (candid):

                                A babbling brook singing to me:

                                Clock tower:

                                Unexpected:

                                I chose Olympus because I needed a waterproof camera for Bank Holiday Challenges!
