The theme for this two week challenge will be "Laughter." Being that on the eve of this post, I'm headed to Disney World, I thought this would be a fitting topic for this challenge. My next 7 days will be filled with lots of laughter and fun (and I'm sure some tears too)...so yours should be too. Lets see some great images. Please note the date of your photo. Please post a single image, represents the theme. Let's close this month out with this challenge. The deadline to post entries to this challenge will be October 10th at 23:59 [11:59 PM] EST (Eastern Standard Time.) After that, voting will remain opened through October 11th at 23:59 [11:59 PM] EST. Votes will be tallied, then the winner will be announced. The next challenge should be posted by the winner soon after. Rules: A single "theme" will be provided for each challenge. These can specify a particular subject (e.g. "trees", "vehicles", "animals", "water"), a shooting/post processing method ("black and white", "shot in M-mode (manual)", "blur", "multiple exposure") or it can be more ephemeral ("happy", "orange", "renewal", "symmetry"). Note: since our audience is global, themes that reference a particular season of the year should be avoided. Each challenge will run for a period of two weeks. This should give everyone that wishes to participate a chance to get out and exercise his/her vision. Since the intent of this challenge is to get people out and shooting, entries should be shot during the time-frame of the challenge (i.e. no searching through back catalogs for images that match the theme. Since this is a Micro Four Thirds forum, entries should be shot with a Micro Four Thirds camera. Each participant must choose a single image to share in a post on the thread. A winner will be declared at the end of each challenge based on "votes" received from forum participants. A "like" (thumbs-up) will count as one vote and a "winner" (medal) will count as two votes. Voting is open to anyone (not just participants) and voters may cast as many or as few votes as they wish. Ties will be broken based on the larger number of "winner" votes, beyond that, any ties will be broken by the member who chose the theme (see below). The winner will choose the theme and post the subsequent challenge in a new thread. If the winner fails to post anew challenge within five days, the responsibility passes to the runner-up. At the end of the challenge the winner of the previous challenge should total the votes and announce the winner and the runners-up. Good luck to everybody that chooses to enter.
