August photo of the month competition

Post by Paultojo » Thu Aug 04, 2016 9:04 pm

Competition Rules

1. Only one entry per user, unless posting on behalf of another person who is unable to do so themselves (children for example). If this is the case, please state so on your entry.
2. The photograph must have been taken during the month in question.
3. The photo can be of any subject you like, as long as there is some civilian aviation connection - shots of military aircraft at civilian airfields do not qualify though.
4. The image can be photo-shopped to some extent, levels changes, cropping, sharpening etc. are all acceptable. The photograph must retain it’s initial subject though, don’t make it something it’s not, (cutting and pasting the moon into the shot, for example). HDR images are not acceptable. If you are unsure, please PM a moderator.
5. The competition will remain open until 23.59 (UK time) on the 1st September 2016, however this may be extended due to late posting and demand.
6. Voting is open to all members in the 10 days following the closure of the competition, this will be done by a poll which will be set up when the competition closes. Moderators/Administrators/Sponsors will not be exempt from the competition but no-one can vote for their own entry.
7. Voting details will be announced once the competition has closed.
8. All images must be posted in line with the usual CA posting rules, size etc. , read them if you're not sure how to post etc.
9. Please also embed the images and not post a link to an image as it makes it harder to judge, if you're not sure how to do it, shout up and someone will sort it out.
10.Do not comment on other member's photos.
11.The rules may be subject to change, and these will be posted on this thread.
12.The decision of the moderating team is final.
13. Only entries already posted on the forum will qualify for the competition, please include a link to the original post.



There are no prizes at present but all three winners will be posted in The Hall of Fame and "POTM winner" will be added to the winner's profile.

Good luck to all entrants.

I DID change my mind and have gone with the Martinair 747 after all, landing at Stansted on 3rd August, Martinair retired their last MD.11 at the end of July and are now using this and KLM Cargo 747s on the service twice a week
