    Hi Guys and especially Mikey - The previous challenge holder :smile:
    I would like to thank everyone for their participation in this wonderful challenge .Its all fun and all those participate are winners . Now as I have won the last challenge , its my turn to start a new one . The new challenge is named as 72 hour golden Ribbon challenge .The topic is sunset or sunrise .
    The rules are as follows-Just a review of the rules for the 72-hour golden ribbon challenge:

    As the title suggests, each challenge lasts for 72-Hours. Everyone gets to submit 2 photos in line with the chosen theme. The winner of the previous challenge gets to choose the new theme (topics can be anything under the sun) and serves as the judge for his/her 72-hour challenge.

    For obvious purposes, the judge is disqualified from participating in his/her own 72-hour challenge. Instead, he/she should post up to 2 photos as examples to start out the challenge. Should the winner not be able to commit to being the next judge, the responsibility is passed on to the runner-up.

    At the end of the 72-hours (we don't have to be strict about 72-hours, especially with time differences depending on where you are on the globe), the judge will name a golden ribbon winner, a runner-up, and 1 honorable mention. As we all know, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. We may not all agree with the chosen winners; the judge is encouraged (but not required) to state what criteria he used to decide on a winner.

    To make sure we don't break any Mu43 rules/regulations, by participating in this thread you are allowing the judge to repost your image for the sole purpose of announcing the winners for "Your Best Shot: A 72-hour golden Ribbon challenge."
    And finally I am not allowed to post pics for the purpose of participation in contets but I am going to post two pics as an examples .
    So here we go .

    sunet.

    I LIKE IT! :biggrin: I don't have any sunrise or sunset photos (no nice ones at least). I will try to find time to shoot our hospital building with a sunset background if I can.

    I really like this one!!!

    The recent overcast weather is no conducive to taking sunrise/sunset photos, so, here's an old one:

    :confused: I might have missed it in the rules, but judging from the submissions so far these do not have to be new (or at least previously unposted) photos?
