    Thanks again to Steven for choosing my photo. For the next challenge I chose 'colors'. Please feel free to chose any picture shot with :43: that you think matches this theme.

    The competition is open until 21/4.

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/ehudlavon/8112130248/" title="Grand palace by Ehud Lavon, on Flickr"> 8112130248_1b1dd3190c_b. "1024" height="768" alt="Grand palace"></a>

    Please refer to the comprehensive list of previous topics and winners via the links below:

    72 Hour Challenge Rules

    As the title suggests, each challenge lasts for 72 hours. Everyone gets to submit 2 photos shot with camera 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 blue 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 the 72-hr Blue Ribbon Challenge.

    I actually just edited one, and put it on my blog today with the caption: "Sometimes, you just need a splash of color in your life. Other times, the entire bucket gets spilled…". From the Rijeka Carnival celebration.

    Second one is from the same celebration, when my wife and her friends decided to go in 50's style costumes. Several people have referred to this as the "Pleasantville" photo.

    Due to the tight schedule of some members there was a request to extend the 72 hours. I have decided to respond to this request and extend the challenge I currently run to 100 hundred hours.

    Not sure what this was about. There was a group down at the beach today with the two flags. They moved on before I could have a chat.

    Hi Ehud,

    I thought you're suggestion was that they were going to end by Mondays, results on Tuesdays and new challenge by Wednesdays? Did you change your mind?

    Rgds.
