- Weekly Challenge - Show Us Your Images of Weather (ends April 12, 2015). Thanks @otinkyad(Richard! ;) ) for this weeks theme and congrats on your win in the previous challenge..!!
Please note! this is NOT your standard Image Comment/Critique thread! So, PLEASE KEEP READING! Rather, it is a new idea that a few of us have come up with to allow you to show, and have your images voted on - and, it won't cost you a single Token... Ready? This will be fun.. BUT - Please Read the Instructions on How to Enter and How to Vote in my post below starting off with "Instructions".
And for those who might wonder - the contest image was taken with a Nikon FA with Velvia 100F color positive film - scanned on a K/M @ 5400 DPI
Well, well, well...12 April 2015

My thanks thanks to @otinkyad , @Spotfist , @RussBill and others for asking I submit images into the weekly challenge.. Ummm - as you've already seen the one that I used to announce this challenge - I dug out the following image - which is First Snow, January.. I know Linda will recognize the location, but - I haven't posted this image previously (Sony A7R with one of my manual lenses, no idea which on..?)..1 7 April 2015
This is a photo I took on a cold and blustery day on Lake Michigan. I can still feel the sting on my face.3 7 April 2015
"Stormy Sea". Flicking through my photos, I found this one of a stormy sea that I took about this time last year.1 7 April 2015

Hi John6 April 2015
The picture you posted above to kick off the competition (and your others) is pretty good. Why not post it again as a Revision to put it in the compettition? It seems a shame that at present, as a function of your valued role as instigator, your starter picturs aren't in the comp.
You may have seen this before, but I thought it was appropriate for this week's challenge (thanks again to JD). I now call it "We're Gonna Need A Bigger Boat!"1 6 April 2015
Taken this winter in the local recreation ground. One of several fog pictures I've taken recently. The title is "Forlorn".3 6 April 2015

This is meant to be a fun weekly challenge for all Focussion friends and members. You can enter either photos you have taken previously - or even new photos taken during the week that the contest runs!
How to Enter a photo for the weekly contest: In this SAME THREAD, you will see a button called REVISION just below the main weekly theme photo and above the first reply. BUT BEFORE UPLOADING! - Please resize your image to 1200 pixels on the largest side - that is important! Next - write a little something about entry - and press REVISION - and you will be able to UPLOAD a photo into this thread. Then - hit the button Post Feedback after your entry has uploaded. It is that easy! however - if your "revision" is outside the theme for the week, I will delete it ;)
How to Vote for you favorite Images this is the easy part! If you see an image that you really like - and think should WIN the weekly challenge - just click the "Helpful" link under that picture.! The person with the most "Helpful" votes at the end of the week - wins, and chooses the theme for the following week. And, of course - you can vote for all entries - but - that's a little counter-productive to deciding who has the best image..
Anyway - I hope this works...
AND OH - PLEASE ONLY POST IMAGES FOR THE WEEKLY CHALLENGE AS A REVISION IN THIS THREAD!!! If you post them as a new image thread, they don't count in the voting - and - they will cost you Tokens to post...
