Of course, if he submits this the rest of us are "dead meat"! :o

Maybe try again, around when taxes are due!;)
We're half way thru' January so only six weeks left.
The theme is parallels in landscapes with extra (brownie :) ) points for including transportation content.
At the end of February I'll pick what I think is the most theme representative photo and that victim ..... err umm person will choose and judge the next theme (if they wish).
get 'em posted !!
Oh, can we submit more than one entry?
I'd like to take part but don't know the submission guidelines. Please bring me up to date.
Btw, when I ran across this thread I was just previously thinking about a $1 contest between us.
I would encourage a virtual flood of entries - as many as you can make and post. There is no limit.
The submission guidlelines are ::
The photo must be a "distance" shot - no closeups or street scenes, no indoor scenes etc. I am using the word "landscape", but long distance shots done in cityscapes are fine as well. There must be some "parallel" elements in the scene somewhere and extra points are given for having some sort of "transportation" theme included. Any format is fine and any type of film camera is ok - homemade, pinhole, 35mm, LF, MF, Polaroid transfers - I don't care - if it's film and takes a picture - use it!!
Here's a (technically very poor) example : http://www.apug.org/forums/attachmen...6&d=1168002969 for you.
Once the end of Feb is reached, I will pick the victim (winner :) ) and that person may choose to lead the next round.
I hope this is an ok explanation - please ask if you have any questions.
PS : i am a very lenient judge ... this is for FUN after all ... :)
So your requesting a scan posted to a portfolio?
There's a gallery dedicated to the Monthly Shooting Assignment (MSA) and it can be found here : http://www.apug.org/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=508

I think that's what you were asking? (I can be a bit thick sometimes :))
I've placed one of the ones I wanted to submit for this out in the Gallery. The scan doesn't catch some of the building detail that I think is in the negative so I'll work on that. Still fun to play with.
