    Hi everyone,

    please post your interpretations on the theme 'Photo series' up to the 24th of April. This topic is different to the previous challenges and I would like to see a series of photos. You have to submit at least two photos and should not exceed the number of five photos. Your submission could be a series of a landscape with different light or photos showing basically the same subject with small changes/differences, e.g. a train station at night and at day. Be creative and show us some interesting series of photos. :) To give you an idea, I'll post an example below, which is out of competition, of course.

    Rules (mostly) as usual:

    1. Either take pictures that match the nominated theme or select some from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the images in order to enter it.

    2. Only one entry per salon, please. If you want to withdraw an entry and replace it with another, that is OK, but you must make it clear in the post containing your replacement pictures that this is what you've done. You can add or change the title and add to the edit line to let everyone know.

    3. The decision of the curator at the end of the challenge is final - don't give him/her a hard time about it: this is just a friendly photo challenge, after all!

    4. The person who submitted the chosen picture will assume the responsibility of curator for the next Salon Challenge and as soon as possible post a message in a new thread in the PL Photo Challenges forum, with details of the new theme. Don't forget - that opening message must include a copy of these instructions, which also double as the rules.

    5. The curator cannot enter his or her own salon.​


    Example (and I hope to see better series than this one ;) ):

    Enjoy it!

    Cheers,
    Matt

    Back home from wanderings in Brittany, France, full of great memories and a sequence to share :)
    Hopefully this little series will convey the joy of walking on the most western part of France, Pointe du Raz, where the tip of Finistere meets the Atlantic ocean:

    P.S. I love your idea for the challenge and hope more will jump on it.

    Thank you for all these beautiful submissions. Will be hard to choose one.
    Nevertheless, I hope more series are "in production"! There are about four weeks left! Enjoy it! :)

    Yesterday, I had the deep joy to visit the home of Rudyard Kipling; "Batemans". The house is pretty much as it would have been if he still lived there. The house was left in the care of the National Trust and it contains his original furniture. It is the only home I have visited where you could actually sense the presence of the previous owner/occupier. His writing room certainly speaks volumes. He wasn't the tidiest of people. He also complained that his typewriter failed to spell correctly! (I feel your pain Mr Kipling). The school blazer belonged to his son John; whom he encouraged to go to war, and who was lost at the battle of Loos in Belgium in 1915. Despite this, it felt a happy home.

    Thank you for your submissions!

    Bill, I am sorry to say that, but to comply to the rules you would have to remove one of your images. A maximum of five are allowed.

    It's a shame really, because it is a brilliant concept and execution.

    I don't have much of anything that fits the bill. So today before I took Charlie to the groomer, I decided a "before" and "after" would be all I could muster.

    I agree, the series was really good and I don't like that I had to mention that. Anyway Bill did a great job, even with 5 photos only.

    Rules is rules and I got carried away. My first set was seven images. I am my own worst editor! ;)

    Faux Heads on an April Saturday @ Cornelius.
    These were all taken during a fairly short visit to a rather upscale garden center last Saturday.
