Entries by 1900 next Sunday please http://www.railforums.co.uk/gallery
Only one entry this week so curly42 is automatically declared the winner.
A hollow victory,it has to be said.It's a real shame that the competition has become so hit and miss - in the last few weeks even the people who have suggested the next theme haven't sent entries in.
Pretty surprising in an era when almost everyone carries some sort of photographic device.I've said it before,and I still hold it true - the competition is fun because you always stand a chance of your picture,taken on your "many thousands of pounds equipment",being beaten by something taken on a cheap mobile phone.In fact I know of a couple of people who stopped taking part because they couldn't stand the embarrassment of that happening !!
So,come on people,get those pictures sent in.
It would be nice to be able to see that pic at full size
I try most weeks but most of the pictures I want to upload are too big.
Try here -
Than you sir
I can't see it because of company internet policy but I appreciate the gesture all the same
Perhaps the competition needs a "hoilday" ? The number of people voting is now usually less than 20. Or maybe there should be no "set subject", just a (? monthly ) "open subject" competition ?
Also, for practical reasons, a "TOC specific" topic may not attract a lot of entries from those of us living a long way from their operating area. It is a long while since I entered any of the competitions - too little time, too many other things to do - even my own website is a bit neglected.....
I try to vote most weeks, although there have been occasions where I abstained because I did not particularly like any of the entries.
It would be a shame to lose it altogether; I do enjoy it a lot, although have not entered up to this point (not having many good photos available being a good reason for this ).
We will be looking at re-vamping the competition later in the year. It's been going for 9 years now so we've had a lot of competitions which means we must have almost exhausted every mainstream subject! In the meantime, Competition 923 is now open (sorry for the delay), so get in your pictures of Class 68s - there should be plenty of pictures out there, with daily passenger workings on Chiltern and ScotRail, plus other DRS workings all over the place.
A different upload system would be nice so I don't have to keep e-mailing them to Jordy!
I haven't entered a lot, mainly as I either miss the categories, a couple of times by E-mailing them the day before and not making it in time, or not got any of the categories, such as Type 1 and 2's. Not been photting for that long and, besides, if Curly enter's then I have no hope :tongue: !
A video competition I could also enter though if a side competition was done
The technical problems we have with the Coppermine gallery haven't exactly helped the competition to flourish recently, and as theblackwatch says we will be looking to revamp things in the near future, watch this space...
