First of all congratulations to last months competition winners and thanks to everyone who took part. I will be in touch soon to arrange the vouchers.

1st place with 5 votes was @WeeMalky
2nd place with 4 votes was @Paul stuart
3rd place with 3 votes was @Sdawes

Let's stick with no theme again for this month as this seems to be attracting more entries.

Competition Dates
Entries start: The date that this post is published.
Entries end: November 20th at 3am Eastern Time (9am GMT)

Voting starts: November 20th at 3am Eastern Time (9am GMT)
Voting ends: November 28th at 3am Eastern Time (9am GMT)

What Do I Get if I Win?
1st Place - The first place winner will receive a $50 (US Dollar) voucher for B&H Photo OR Amazon (you can choose depending on your country and preference).
2nd Place - The second place winner will receive a $25 (US dollar) voucher for B&H Photo OR Amazon.
3rd Place - The third place winner will receive a $20 (US dollar) voucher for B&H Photo OR Amazon.


There are no alternative prize options or cash options, so if you are unable to accept a B&H or Amazon voucher I'm afraid you will miss out on the prize.

If your local currency is something other than US dollars then the above amounts will be converted based on the exchange rate at the time.

In the event of a draw the entry date will be extended but not past the last day of the month. If there are still equal votes for 1st, 2nd or 3rd place then the entry prizes will be split. I can't think of a better way of doing this for the time-being! If this happens I may also only be able to offer Amazon vouchers since $20 is the minimum for B&H.

How to Enter + Rules
  1. Simply post your entry below. It will be best to insert the image as full-size rather than a thumbnail.
  2. Only one photo entry per member
  3. Keep the photos clean and family friendly
  4. Sony cameras only
  5. Archived shots are allowed
  6. Don't use sky replacements
How to Vote (when voting opens)
  1. Use the vote button (up arrow) to the right of the post (below post on mobile) to vote up images that you like
  2. You can vote on as many images as you like apart from your own
Feedback
I'd really appreciate feedback about how the competition is running but please don't post it in this thread. Instead please post any feedback in this thread in the Feedback Forum.

Thank you for participating and good luck!

Tim

So - an experimentation with black and white imaging with the viewfinder visualisation set to only show me B&W. I had a lot of fun, this was probably the most rewarding image I get back of a building that shall we say remembers past glories better than it's current state. Shot on an A7R3 whilst waiting for my MOT to take place. (car inspection for those not in the UK).
