    15th Serious Compacts Salon Challenge: "The Kitchen"


    The challenge will begin 23:59hrs on April 23rd (UK Time) and run til 23:59hrs (UK time) on 7th May.

    The Kitchen: Everybody has one. Some men even know where it is and what happens in it! :0) It could be anything from boiling stock, chopping onions, what's in your fridge, cake rising, still life, collage......relationship (the mind boggles) -

    -------------------- The Rules remain the same-----------------------:
    1. Either take a picture that matches the nominated theme or select one from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the picture in order to enter it.

    2. There are several ways to add your photos to the current salon thread: 1. upload your entry to your SC user gallery (all entries must be present in an SC gallery), which you automatically get if you are registered on the SC forum, so if you aren`t registered you will need to if you would like to join the fun. (Don't know about the "gallery" yet? Then read this: SC Gallery FAQ please read it carefully if you are new to using the site's software.) 2. embed from Flickr or another similar web hosting photo site and 3. use the attachment method. All three are explained here:How to post images in forum threads

    3. 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 picture that this is what you've done. You can add or change the title and add to the edit line to let everyone know.

    4. 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!

    5. 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 SC 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.

    6. The curator can't enter his or her own salon.

    7. Please, don´t be shy...Participate and have fun!

    8. Each salon should be open for about two weeks.

    I'll play. They are a bit slow, this lot :)



    I always have to have a jar of almonds in the kitchen for nibbles or else I am tempted by sugary snacks which I should never have (still do, but I try to be good)

    This is just a bump. Surely you all have access to a kitchen of sorts. This one is not for consideration, but it's what I made after the toast.

    Was my kitchen theme uninspiring? ........or has the salon challenge run its course?

    I was wondering that, myself. Maybe when we do a challenge it should run for a month. I think a fortnight is too short (and a week even worse, I never go in those)... a month gives everyone time. Was the kitchen theme uninspiring? I dont think so, I just think people arent paying attention. And, as I've said, they are a bloody slow lot, especially when theres new gear to be gawped over or talked about. The forum is more and more and more gear oriented, it seems to me, although when I look at the threads list in the right sidebar, I see there are as many image threads as gear ones. Still, its an impression one gets.

    I'd meant to participate but just never got around to it. Here's a wide-aperture macro (with all the blurriness that entails on the X100) of the apple crumble pie my sister made me for my bday :smile:
