First of all congratulations to last months competition winners and thanks to everyone who took part.

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

Since last months no theme competition seemed to do the trick of attracting a few more entries than our previous themed competitions, I think we'll stick to the no theme option again for this months competition. So again please feel free to submit any photos that you wish, providing they are safe for work!

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

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

I added Sony to my kit for BIF. When my niece asked me to photograph her wedding I cautioned her to hire a real wedding pro but obviously happily obliged. She’s brilliant and stunning and her new hubby is great. Turns out the killer af and tracking are perfect for candid wedding shots sans flash. A1 50mm f1.8
