Rules can be found here...Rules Thread

This months theme (courtesy of Jon5000) is....

Home


A really good theme this month so you should be able to find something relevant close to, well, home but as always as long as you can shoehorn a connection to the theme in there somewhere, nobody is going to care how tenuous your link is.

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

New Rules for 2012 - Photoshopping is limited to Global Edits (i.e. they apply to the whole photo, not to one specific part) and cropping only

Posting will finish on the 27th April at 5pm
Voting will run from 27th until Star Wars Day (May the Fourth be with you)

so get snapping and have fun

There's a constant battle at my place between myself the collector / hoarder and my wife, the minmalist.
I usually lose, my wife saying she doesn't want to live in a museum.



Home, my own personal museum.

Unfortunately, poor weather prevented me from taking the photo I actually wanted to take. Instead, it presented another idea:


Home: A Place to Take Shelter / Memories From Childhood


I would like the clarify that it is rain outside and that my windows are not exceptionally filthy.

Added to the list - Is there a larger version of it? it seems a little dwarfed by the other entries and i wouldn't want it to miss out on votes because of this

Size has now (hopefully) been altered. If you could replace the image in the original post with the modified one, that would be great!

I'm just going to be casting one vote, if that's alright (I have concerns about first, second and third place selections being given equal weight when it comes to vote counting).

If this is an issue, lemme know, and I'll return with another two selections.

With that said, I am casting my vote for HOZAY.

Home: A Place to Take Shelter / Memories From Childhood -LastMemories

the best is by Homer TBH. It's a fantastic composition and has a real sense of the moment. I do love ( as it's like the kinda shot i'd take) the pic by Lastmories. If only it was sharper and maybe the sun flooded the picture more it would be simply fantastic. It does have that painterly, almost expressionist, feel to it. it's a great photo

It is a great pic, but I must confess I was swayed by the rather ace bedspread

Why not? you've made your 3 choices (and an extra one) and you took the effort to post.

We (well, I) like people to vote, I like it even more when people don't enter vote (it means I have less writing to do) just pick your favourite 3 from the 4 you picked and we're good to go.



And as a friendly reminder, I'll be counting the votes up after 5pm so if you want to vote, get it done soon

Dead on. as i've never been part of the photo thread i wasn't sure on the rules, but i'll have a pop sure

1. "Home is where your mind can take you." by HomerSimpson_esq

2.Green green grass of home...... by Hobbitonlass

3. Home: A Place to Take Shelter / Memories From Childhood -LastMemories

Also when's the next one? i may dabble if theres a space. it has made me think about how little photography i've done the past couple of years. I have to sort that out
