Photo Competition Round 3 - 17/8/2011 7:19:13 PM

Round 3

Rules can be found here...Rules Thread

This months theme is....

Film Title Literations (or Photos based on film titles)


Well I've been struggling to think of a decent theme, and shamelessly ripped off Hozay's from last month

I thought that we'd scrap the 10 bonus points and instead vote for your favourite 3 photos in preference order.

what i will then do is to tabulate do some mathematical wizardry and award extra points for people placed up to 10th in the competition, like formula 1 the points will be awarded as follows...

Pos. Points
1st 25
2nd 18
3rd 15
4th 12
5th 10
6th 8
7th 6
8th 4
9th 2
10th 1

If you get no votes, you get no points (like a DNF in F1)

If you choose to enter, you have 21 days to post a picture that you have taken that meets the above criteria

and just so we're clear "VOX POPULI, VOX DEI" - if you feel that a particular photo should win, VOTE FOR IT

Posting will finish on the 7th of September,
Voting will run from 7th sept to 14th september

even with my dodgy adding skills being corrected, and even if you included gazpop's rant as a vote (even if it was after the fact), Mojo only managed 3 votes, which was less than the 4 votes that I received

Since I'll be away for most of September, I thought I'd get my entry in early:



Mystic River

entries close on the 7th September at 1700 - I've got one in the bank, but it's proper rubbish so I'm going to see if I can get a better one before then

I need to think of an idea. I think Johnson's This Is England is gonna take some beating though.

I think Jonson's totally nailed it with this.   As a fairly patriotic Scot who usually finds it irksome to see these colours in a football domain (despite my national team being beyond shit), this is absolutely England in my mind.   Great pic and totally relevant to the brief.

3. Steffols - Sleeping beauty
