    Hopefully getting more participation on this one ... inspired by a recent thread of balancing Photography & Family Time :smile:

    Here's a sample:

    Weekly Challenge Rules

    The challenge will be open from Friday through Wednesday, with a winner announced on Thursday (slowly sneaking back to schedule...). Everyone gets to submit 2 photos shot with an m4/3 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 weekly challenge.

    For obvious purposes, the judge is disqualified from participating in his/her own weekly 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.

    Contests are scheduled to open on Wednesday of each week. On Tuesday of the following week, 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 Weekly Challenge.

    I guess most parents chose spending time with the family than photography ... which is a good thing :smile:

    Great shot... Reminds me of a time I was trying to get a photo of my 5 year old jumping off a swing. I had a tough time explaining how I got a picture of the moment he broke his nose.

    I often struggle to find inspiration beyond photographing my kids and worry what I will do when they get older. For now I will continue to enjoy it while I can (or they will let me).

    Here some action shots from an interactive fountain I took earlier this week.

    Here's an "action" sequence. Not a lot of movement, but some impressive jaw work.

    Same here. I guess we make the most of the years we have, then hope for grandkids!

    Wow

    Thanks rhoydotp, I'm overcome with pride and emotion at winning your competition, I'd like to thank all those clever people at Panasonic for delivering a truly magnificent imaging tool, my wife for making me book a holiday to Palma which was where that snap was taken and of course, the little girl for having the sense to run away from the idiot with the camera.

    Looking forward to the next competition.

    It's your turn to start/judge the next weekly competition. Just mimic what I did but come up with a new "topic" and you're good to go! :2thumbs:
